It's that time of year again. The time to take a look back at all the events of the year about to fade into history and figure out what has defined, changed, shook up, or made an impact on the world of daytime as we know it. Each day for the next 9 days we're going to publish a new Top 10 List for 2007. First up the Top 10 Newsmakers & Headlines of 2007.
Top 10 Newsmakers & Headlines of 2007
When we narrowed down this list to the final ten we looked for a combination of headlines of major impact to daytime shows and headlines that surpassed the "normal" daytime media and made national news. From Rosie vs. Elisabeth's monumental clash on The View to the loss of Hunter Tylo's son and DUI's of Kirsten Storms (General Hospital) and Sean Kanan (f. Bold & Beautiful) each of these stories grabbed national attention and put daytime "on the map". On the other hand, the firing of Dena Higley and Megan McTavish from One Life to Live and All My Children respectively had an immediate impact on the daytime industry.

What do you get when Rosie O'Donnell cover's Amy Winehouse while her makeup is being applied? To be honest, I'm not sure. But this clip is to funny. I could be wrong but it sort of looks like some of the clips from back when she was still on The View. If so then you may have already seen it but since I hadn't I thought I'd share. However, I will say this. Love her or hate her, at least Rosie puts herself out there and is who she is with us the fans, unlike many other stars.
In the 10 years Rosie's For All Kids Foundation has been helping kids through grants and initiatives it has raised over 60 million dollars and helped thousands of children in the United States.
Just when I begin to think that I'm missing Rosie on The View. Something like this has to go and happen. Once again Rosie is suffering from foot-in-mouth disease, though this time with MSNBC.
Reportedly, she was in talks with the cable news channel to host her own show opposite of Larry King on CNN and Hannity on FOX. Now, its all fallen through because she spoke up about it before it was finalized.
For some Rosie watchers, this may all seem a bit familiar.
Remember how, after her successful appearance on Nip/Tuck, Rosie started talking about a Nip/Tuck spinoff starring herself and how much press it got? Nothing ever came of that and allegedly it was all a big PR deal to try and get a spinoff but her talking about it pretty much eliminated the possibility of it happening.
If that is true, wouldn't one learn the first time they make such a mistake? Especially someone who has been in the industry as long as she has?
