Rosie on Sherri Leaving The View: Now No One Will Think the Earth Is Flat

Rosie O’Donnell will be returning to ABC’s The View Monday after her controversial exit from the program in 2007. Judging from her recent interview with Variety, she’s still the same Rosie.

In the interview, O’Donnell says she wants a smarter show and apparently she thinks it will be, now that former long-time co-host Sherri Shepherd has departed.

“No one is going to think the Earth is flat,” she said of the new show lineup, which will include Whoopi Golderg, Republican strategist Nicolle Wallace and actress Rosie Perez. “When I was at home watching [Shepherd say] that, I thought I was going to have an aneurysm.”

Shepherd was memorably pressed by Goldberg back in 2007 on whether she believed the Earth was flat. “I don’t know, I’ve never thought about it, Whoopi,” Shepherd answered with a completely straight face. She also once said that Christianity was the first religion.
