Oprah Winfrey appears to be annointing Rosie O’Donnell as the new Oprah.  Oprah’s OWN network has been plummeting in the ratings, and her sydicated talk show will end on May 25th.  So she has signed Rosie to do a new show to anchor the OWN line-up - that will be filmed in Oprah’s old studio.  But critics aren’t sure American’s will embrace the former “Queen of Nice” since she’s gotten so political, spent a combative year on “The View” and was even voted “the most annoying celebrity of 2007” by the readers of Parade magazine. 

- She did do a lot better with the readers of “Gay Pride Parade” magazine.  

- So I guess this means Rosie is now one of Oprah’s Favorite Things! 

- Instead of new cars, Rosie will give everyone in her audience the finger.  

- At least the tabloids won’t have any expose about Rosie and her best friend being secretly gay!
