Rosie O’Donnell Says Being Interviewed For ‘The View’ Tell-All Book ‘Ladies Who Punch’ Is Her ‘Biggest Regret’

Rosie O’Donnell is opening up about her one regret in life.

The former “The View” host, 57, chatted with Us Weekly at the opening of Broadway’s “Oklahoma!” in New York City and revealed being interviewed by Ramin Setoodeh for his explosive tell-all book Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View was a huge mistake.

“My biggest regret was ever sitting down with him for 20 minutes, and that’s exactly what I did to appease my publicist,” she confessed.

O’Donnell continued, “But it’s my biggest regret.”

In the book, the “SMILF” actress brought up her old feud with Elisabeth Hasselbeck. O’Donnell, who co-hosted from 2006 to 2007 and 2014 to 2015, said, “I think there were underlying lesbian undertones on both parts.”

Adding, “I think this is something that will hurt her if you write it. She was the MVP of a Division 1 softball team for two years that won the finals. There are not many, in my life, girls with such athletic talent on sports teams that are traditionally male that aren’t at least a little bit gay.”

Ladies Who Punch is available now.
