NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Rosie O’Donnell admits she was a handful when she was on “The View.”
O’Donnell tells NBC’s “Today” show that Barbara Walters wasn’t used to someone as passionate about her views as she was on the show. She says “passion on that show wasn’t number-one.” She says she forced Walters to be “more emotional than she’s comfortable with.”
She also confirmed reports that she exploded at Walters before an episode of “The View” because Walters hadn’t called her and taken her side during O’Donnell’s feud with Donald Trump.
Despite their differences, she says she’s still friends with Walters.
O’Donnell admits she was also “a lot” for Elisabeth Hasselbeck to handle and she says she’s “trying” to have at least an e-mail relationship with her.
