Rosie O’Donnell contract demands include the provision that no reality stars be named to fill the open co-host spots of The View. This could be Rosie playing into the stereotype that all reality stars are pill-popping wrecked fame whores with no rock bottom. Actually, that’s not a stereotype, it’s true. Rosie could also be trying to blackball Sarah Palin, who made the switch from VP candidate to reality TV star like she was never qualified to be the former. Palin did toss her own name into the hat this week for the open ‘white conservative slot left vacant by Elizabeth Hasselbeck. Rosie may also envision a smack talking Snooki or Teen Mom easily stealing her thunder. Rosie may be a tough dude, but she’s no idiot. She wants weak sister competition so she and her gay designer dragons retake the Dummy Throne.
