Rosie Stands Up for View Gals After O'Reilly Walkout

At least they still see eye-to-eye on some things

(Newser) – Rosie O'Donnell may have some problems with her former View co-hosts, but she's on their side when it comes to the recent Bill O'Reilly blow-up. O'Donnell doesn't seem to fault Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg for walking off on O'Reilly: She said on her radio show, "Why would you book him?" and a member of her guest panel said he "incited hatred," PopEater reports. But Rosie's harshest words are—privately—for Barbara Walters, who chided Behar and Goldberg on air.

"Rosie thinks Babs should have stuck up for her girls," a source says. "It doesn't matter who was right or wrong, Bill was a guest in her house and he was very rude and belittled her ladies." For more of Rosie's thoughts on Barbara, click here.
