Former host Rosie O’Donnell is opening up about Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime television exit.
During a conversation on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show59 years of experience with daytime hosting is comparable to that of DeGeneres.
“I have an understanding of the cycle of show business. and the kind of things that happen in people’s careers. And when enough is enough,” O’Donnell said.
“Often people don’t know I think I have a good balance of both in life. the importance of both and difficult to maintain it’s hard to do Especially when you act like that,” she continued.
Cagle pointed out that O’Donnell was regarded as the “Queen of goodness”; during her talk show year from 1972.
“I said the day it came out, ‘Look at this, queen of goodness. in the next few years It will be the queen of lice. The queen of fried rice, you know, our queen doesn’t like her anymore,” O’Donnell said.
“I don’t think it’s something ‘kind’ to her, I think it’s too simplistic,” she said about DeGeneres. And I’m glad you’re done. And she will have some time for herself.”
“It’s a big weird thing to be acting like that and giving all your attention. And she’s had it for 19 years, you know it’s tough,” she added.
