Rosie won’t host MSNBC show

Actress, network were 'close to a deal'

Rosie O’Donnell says she won’t be hosting a show for MSNBC after all.

“We were close to a deal. Almost done,” O’Donnell wrote Wednesday on her Rosie.com website/blog. “I let is slip in Miami. Causing panic on the studio end. Well, what can u do? 2day there is no deal. Poof. My career as a pundit is over b4 it began.”

Word leaked out earlier this week that O’Donnell had been talking to the news cabler about a 9 p.m. nightly gabber. Peacock has never commented on the matter.

However, people familiar with the matter confirmed Wednesday that talks had indeed broken off. It’s still unclear why things went sour.

O’Donnell was philosophical about the situation.

“Just as well,” she wrote. “I figure everything happens for a reason. Bashert–as we say. And on we go.”
