Courted by NBC for a possible cable talk show, then spurned
for speaking out of turn about it, Rosie O'Donnell
says she doesn't need the mainstream media to have a program anyway.
"I'm going to figure out a way to do a show here, in my blogville, because I really think it's the next way anyway," O'Donnell says in her latest video blog post, uploaded Friday to Rosie.com
. "Who the hell wants to work for a company with three letters that's just going to get mad when you tell people what you're doing?"
Speaking from her home office, and having just gotten up, O'Donnell seemed relaxed, and amused by NBC's decision. "Listen, I'm too old!" she says with a chuckle. "When you're young, you do those things. 'Yes, I won't tell anyone! Lock me in the NBC vault!' "
She added wearily, "I don't know, it's alright. I really do believe everything happens for a reason."
