TV DRAMA: Real Reason 'Rosie Show' Was Axed?

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Rosie O'Donnell's big return to television was suddenly interrupted on Friday when the Oprah Winfrey Network announced that it canceled O'Donnell's daily talk show after five quick months.

The Daily Beast and "Today" reported on Monday that it was Oprah's decision to pull the plug on "The Rosie Show."

Oprah had once been O'Donnell's biggest cheerleader, even giving the new show her old studio, director, and stage manager. Oprah made a surprise appearance during O'Donnell's live debut show in October, and reiterated all the confidence and support she possessed for O'Donnell's epic return.

According to The Daily Beast, Oprah visited O'Donnell in her studio before she made the decision to cancel the show. After visting Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" set, which is modeled after host Andy Cohen's den, O'Donnell decided to scrap her show's entire look and replace it with something more intimate. When Oprah visited O'Donnell and the new set, staff members described the meeting as "awkward." Earlier this month, reports surfaced that O'Donnell had put her Chicago home on the market and was moving the show back to her home, New York City. click here to read more

    KHQ.COM - Most mothers can only hope by the time their children grow up and move out of the house, they've learned all the necessary things to be a successful adult, including the basic knowledge that a turkey must be cooked in an oven, or perhaps in a smoker...
