Rosie O’Donnell’s negotiations with MSNBC have ended. She just posted the following explanation on her blog:
following keith olbermann

2day there is no deal
my career as a pundit is over
b4 it began
just as well
everything happens for a reason
bashert – as we say
and on we go”
A few days ago the New York Times (and several other media outlets) reported that Rosie was in serious discussions to return to television in a prime-time show on the cable news channel MSNBC.
Under one scenario, Rosie would have filled the 9 p.m. slot each weeknight on MSNBC, to compete with “Larry King Live” on CNN and “Hannity & Colmes” on Fox News.
