(Photo: Splash News Online) Interviewed on the Sirius/XM radio show Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer, Rosie O'Donnell explained why she's giving up her infamous blog.

"I started the blog four years ago," she said. "It was a wonderful way for me to have an outlet to express myself."

Unfortunately, she sighed, "It got bigger and bigger to the point where whatever I would do would say or do would end up as one of the soundbites on one of the entertainment shows in the evening. It became more of a drain than an inspiration."

You mean...excerpts like this? The 46 year-old former blogger and talk-show host also goes public with how she felt after the one-episode disaster that was her recent variety show. After seeing it, everyone thought they had a hit. Then, she says, she went home and turned on her blog.

"My blog people - the devoted ones - didn't like it," she says. "It was 'too dark.' I was like, 'Oh my. Half the people didn't like it.' Then I knew. Until that point, I had no idea. I was like, 'I could totally hit up a six-pack of Sam Adams right now.'"

By the way, Rosie blogged last year that she quit drinking beer after her daughter asked her to stop.
