Barbara Walters To Rosie O'Donnell: Get On With Your Life: [ send to a friend ]
On Thursday's edition of 'The View', Barbara Walters was once again left defending the show after former co-host Rosie O'Donnell took another shot at the show.
While promoting her upcoming NBC variety special, 'Rosie Live', O'Donnell told reporters "Barbara wanted everyone to believe and think and act as if the women get along and are really good friends and happy and hang out together, and, you know, that's just not the reality."
"I'm not saying they loathe each other, but the fact of the matter is there was not a lot of camaraderie off camera."
Referencing her heated on-air spat with Elisabeth Hasselbeck, O'Donnell said: "I didn't grow up thinking, 'I hope I can talk about politics.' If you watch my stand-up comedy, I talk about my life, my family. It only became about politics with the job on 'The View.'"
In response, without mentioning Rosie by name, Walters commented: "There are some people who have done the show and then for years feel they have to dump on it. I resent it. If the shoe fits, lady, ladies, get on with your lives! We are not perfect. We are not always happy. But we’re pretty good."
And Hasselbeck couldn't resist taking her own shot at her former co-host: "We've had incredible years... maybe one more difficult than others in the past," obviously wanting Walters to agree on-air, but the wise one bit her tongue and moved on after receiving word from the control room to 'get on with it'.
