An Open Letter to Rosie O'Donnell - June 19

Dear Rosie:

Hey there...long time no speak! It’s been seven years. You remember me, don’t you? I was your guest on your show and we had a really good time. We talked about my appearance on Millionaire, you treated my girlfriend and my grandmother nicely and I couldn’t have been happier.

Flash forward to last week. You keep saying that you have been in contact with Fremantle Media wanting the hosting job for "The Price is Right". You want "Ross The Intern" from "The Tonight Show" as the announcer.

Ok, Rosie. Here’s a bit of a reality check for you. You are not and will not EVER get this job. Why?

a) You cannot mold the show into "The Rosie O’Donnell Price is Right". You always have been and always will be very self-centered. Your most recent gig on "The View" proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt. If anyone disagreed with you, you shouted them down. And your opinions on the show left common sense in the rear view mirror.

b) People do not want the show to change. You stated that you wanted "hot guys" to model the prizes. I feel that is very disrespectful to Rich Fields and all the models who have been there over the past few years to just throw everything out to what you want. It’s what the fans want that is more important.

c) You have to keep your politics out of the show. Now I will admit that Barker had influence over the producers with no fur coats, no meat products and American car manufacturers as an animal rights activist, but he did not hammer everybody over the head with it. You have to admit that your left leaning political opinions and activities did turn a lot of people off... and still do.

So my friend, here’s my advice. Stay out of the spotlight for a bit. Hang out with your partner and kids. Write on your blog. Paint, make movies and do the things that you like to do. And when the people come calling at your door...take the show that fits you.

Then come September –watch Todd Newton host the show you wanted so much.

You agree or disagree? Fire me off a letter at jb.regis@verizon.net.
