Rosie Gone, Barbara Walters Now Free to Discuss Heterosexual Sex


Barbara Walters talked to Ryan Seacrest on his KISS-FM radio show “On-Air with Ryan Seacrest” Wednesday, about how things had changed at The View since Rosie O’Donnell’s departure:

“The Hot Topics have been fun. There are some things that we were able to discuss that we weren’t able to discuss with Rosie, like heterosexual sex. Because, you know, Rosie’s lifestyle is different, being an open lesbian…We are perhaps not quite as political [or] vocal about [things], but the Hot Topics have been very fun, and the ratings are up, so we’re quite happy. Obviously, the audience is very loyal.”

Rosie’s response: “She is almost 80.”
