Will The View get Rosie again?
I heard on a KNX radio news report that The View producers want to hire a Latina. In New York City, that will be no problem. The city is bursting with Latina talent. The View could have a two-Rosie panel and tap Oscar nominee Rosie Perez to join the team. She's smart, savvy, a good actress and very charismatic. She starred in Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing and got a Best Supporting Actress nomination for 1993's Fearless.
Roger used to josh Edye because she never read newspapers, news magazines or watched the CNN newscasts in the green room the way the rest of us did. She liked entertainment and lifestyle magazines.
After VH1, Rosie O'Donnell scored in hit comedy movies and became a lovable, popular daytime TV talk show host. Edye Tarbox went on to become an anchor for Fox News. She changed Edye to the initials E.D. She dropped the Tarbox and kept one of her married names -- Hill. She transformed into E.D. Hill of cable's Fox News. Jon Stewart took her to task on The Daily Show after she called the fist bump that then Senator Barack Obama gave his wife, Michelle, a "terrorist fist jab." E.D. later apologized.
E.D. (formerly Edye) has written books. In the acknowledgments, she thanked relatives with the last name Tarbox. That's how I knew for sure she was my former VH1 co-worker.
