Rosie O’Donnell, 53, is back in the news and once again it’s not “good news.”
A former senior producer of ‘The View’ is suing for slander and getting her fired. According to THR, former show producer says she was fired in 2015, after 14 years of working on the ABC daytime show because O’Donnell slandered her in front of other producers and staff.
Shepard-Brookman claims O’Donnell wanted to oust Whoopi Goldberg from the moderator spot, and that O’Donnell accused the producer of colluding with Goldberg to “undermine” her.
When it was decided that Goldberg would lead the coverage of the beheading of James Foley rather than O’Donnell, the comedian screamed at Shepard-Brookman and saying she “grabbed the arms of the chair in which Ms. Brookman was sitting, leaning very close to her face and prohibiting her from leaving,” the suit states.
This should provide more material for Donald Trump to fuel his on-going feud with O’Donnell.
