Oprah Cancels The Rosie Show

Oprah shows Rosie who decides what city she works in and cancels The Rosie Show. I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so.  Official  PR statements were just released stating that the last episode will air on March 31.  Rosie had wanted to move the show to NYC instead of using the fancy Harpo Studios in Chicago. Oprah did not want to pay to re-establish the show in NYC.  Rosie sells her house. Oprah cancels her show. Simple. Or is it? An interesting question would be who was the buyer on Rosie’s house who made a full offer within 24hrs of it hitting the market? Things that make you go hmmmmm….Meanwhile, here are the fake nice statements to the media. First up Oprah:

“I thank Rosie from the bottom of my heart for joining me on this journey. She has been an incredible partner, working to deliver the best possible show every single day. As I have learned in the last 15 months, a new network launch is always a challenge and ratings grow over time as you continue to gather an audience. I’m grateful to Rosie and the dedicated Rosie Show team for giving it their all.”
And Rosie: 

“I loved working with Oprah in the amazing city of Chicago. I was welcomed with open arms and will never forget the kindness of all I encountered. It was a great year for me – I wish the show was able to attract more viewers – but it did not. So I am headed back to my home in New York – with gratitude. On we go!”
I wonder how long until more details on the real feud come out.
