NeNe Leakes & Rosie - Cover

Trouble between co-hosts on “The View” is pretty common, but it came as a shock to even the most seasoned fans when rumors spread this week that reports claimed NeNe Leakes, who hopes to become a “View” co-host, was feuding with newly signed “View” co-host Rosie O’Donnell over rumors that O’Donnell had banned all reality TV stars from hosting the show. Now, after hearing Leakes’ side, O’Donnell has responded with a statement of her own.

As reported yesterday, when news of the rumor about O’Donnell’s ban first hit the news, Leakes responded on “Entertainment Tonight,” saying that she was disappointed in O’Donnell.

“I would be kind of disappointed if she said that [she doesn’t want reality stars], when, there was once upon a time where we hosted Anderson’s show together and she really was like ‘I would love to do a talk show with you.’ So I don’t know why she would say such a thing,” she said.

However, Leakes didn’t seem too down about her chances of hosting the show because she sees herself as more than a reality TV star.

“The good thing about this Rosie, is that NeNe Leakes is not just a reality star. I’m a mogul, I am an actress, I am a producer, I am a clothing designer,” said Leakes.

Well, yesterday morning, O’Donnell responded to Leakes and a report from about the alleged feud and she denied that she enacted any such ban against reality TV stars.

Well, we’re glad that’s settled. We’ll just have to wait and see whether Leakes or some other star will end up sitting beside O’Donnell when the fall season begins. – nicholas robinson
