Walters tells
O'Donnell to stop blogging

Veteran newswoman Barbara Walters has urged her new cohost Rosie O'Donnell to stop blogging about the talk show The View, says the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper. O'Donnell, who joins the show this season, regularly writes about what is happening in her life on her Web site.

O'Donnell complained on her blog about a promotional skit from the new season of the show, writing in her all-lowercase style: "I saw the new view promos. Found myself / in the position / i loathe the most / powerless."

Walters discussed her feelings about O'Donnell's Web posts with Newsweek magazine, saying, "I didn't like the blog. I'm counting on Rosie's intelligence and sensitivity and humor. This is, after all, an entertainment show. It is based on people who like each other and are having a good time, not on people who are arguing and unhappy."

Soon after Walters spoke to the magazine, she received flowers and a card from her new cohost that read, "Barbara, I only want the promos and the show to be great. And I love you. Love, Ro." (The Advocate)
