(Newser) – Rosie O'Donnell's getting ready to kick some ass again on daytime TV, this time on the Oprah Winfrey Network. O'Donnell's six-year Emmy-award-winning stint hosting the Rosie O'Donnell Show was followed by a rocky role on The View. The daily, hour-long talk show will be based in New York, where O'Donnell lives with her three kids, reports the Washington Post. Fans can anticipate a "fun" show with O'Donnell's "playful and energetic style," said a statement from the network, though, given that description, it's not clear the people who wrote the announcement have actually met Rosie.
