Rosie O’Donnell talks about Oprah, Hasselback, and a painful split

HollywoodNews.com: Cynthia McFadden interviewed Rosie O’Donnell this week on ABC’s Nightline and I have the video for you right here!

It’s a good piece.

We see Oprah Winfrey’s reaction to walking into her old studio and seeing it completely transformed (she doesn’t look thrilled actually) and Rosie admits that Oprah had stopped by her house before they sealed the deal for “a crazy check.” Somehow, Rosie says, she passed.

Of course, The View is brought up – in particular, her last day on the show more than four years ago when she had an explosive on-air argument with Elisabeth Hasselbeck. She said when she watches the fight on YouTube, she still feels the betrayal and the two have not spoke except publicly through Twitter.

But Rosie remains quite fond of Barbra Walters: “I love her and I hope she’s going to come and be a guest.”

We all know that Rosie and Kelli Carpenter famously split four years ago and Rosie felt that she was really letting the LGBT community down: “It was probably the most humiliating experience of my life and the most painful and the most humbling.”
