Rosie O'Donnell and Barbara Walters by Heidi Gutman/ABC Rosie O'Donnell and Barbara Walters by Heidi Gutman/ABC

As Rosie O'Donnell disclosed on Wednesday's The View, she and ABC Daytime were unable to come to terms on a new deal, and that's why she is vacating her chair in June. is now reporting that Rosie was seeking a $10 million payday to continue on for one - but only one - additional year, and ABC likely would have ponied up $30 mil total for their requested three-year extension, but O'D wouldn't budge on her time limit. Why the stubborn streak? claims that Rosie resolved to walk back at Christmastime, when View boss Barbara Walters failed to sufficiently stand up for her against Donald Trump.

Where will Rosie go once her Viewing is over? A resurrection of her solo talker? A prime-time game-show hosting gig? "She's going to sit back," her rep tells the New York Daily News, "and decide how she's going to feel creatively fulfilled."
