Rosie O’Donnell Daytime TV Comeback?

Former talk show diva Rosie O’Donnell may be planning to return to daytime TV as early as fall 2011, according to media reports. O’Donnell’s return to TV could possibly coincide with the exit of daytime talk show host Oprah Winfrey from network TV.

Rosie O’Donnell has reportedly entered into a partnership with two former Warner Bros. executives and allegedly hopes to syndicate a new talk show late next year. O’Donnell has been hinting at a return to TV on her Sirius radio show over the past few weeks.

While we think it would be kind of interesting to say Rosie O’Donnell back on the air – just to see what kind of chaos ensued – we’re just not sure if it would be a successful move. Ellen DeGeneres has already taken the reins as Oprah’s successor and we don’t really need two lesbians battling it out for daytime TV ratings (especially since Ellen would win hands down). O’Donnell is also unlikely to end up back on network daytime TV considering her recent history with running off at the mouth. More than likely cable would be her destination and that’s going to make it harder to garner viewers.

Plus, Rosie O’Donnell has hopped aboard the crazy train with her totally nutball blog ranting and raving too many times since she left TV and came out. She’s definitely shown she’s got some freak not far below the surface and we’re a bit afraid of what might come out of her mouth. Unless someone can keep a very tight hold on O’Donnell’s verbal diarrhea, a new talk show could sadly prove more embarrassing for her than anything else.

A spokesperson for Rosie O’Donnell declined to comment on the rumor.
