'The Rosie ODonnell Show'
Date: May 22, 2002
The so-called Queen of Nice (whose reputation has taken quite a beating in the years since) ended her daytime talk show with a mix of Broadway guests and big-time movie stars. After chatting with Nathan Lane and Christine Ebersole, Rosie ended her six-year run with a video segment that mixed her personal life with her show business life. The segment ended with her longtime star crush Tom Cruise performing yard work on her house. Rosie, I cut your grass and here is your lemonade, he said. ODonnell would return to TV on ABCs talk show The View.
