Rosie O’Donnell has been in our living rooms for a long time, but she has certainly had quite the controversial career. Rosie’s talk show grabbed the attention of everyday people, but it was until she spoke of issues that were better left unsaid, when her reputation began to get complicated. The Rosie O’Donnell Show was at a demanding competition against Oprah Winfrey and the Emmy race for five continuous years. In 2002 the television personality publicly released that she was a lesbian and became a stay at home to her adopted son. In 2006 Rosie returned to television on The View. Her time there was short before starting on-air feuds with various personalities. Rosie left the show before her contract was even up.
