In the years following her exit from "The View," O'Donnell published a tell-all memoir Celebrity Detox, continued her popular video blog, "JaHeRo" on her rosie.com website, and hosted "Rosie Radio" on Sirius XM satellite radio. Unceasingly passionate, always opinionated, and frequently controversial, O'Donnell never failed to both inspire and irritate the public at large.
