Rosie Plumps For Tom on "View"

Yesterday, Rosie was giving away cruises. Today, she was standing up for them.

On Day Two of the Rosie Era on "The View," the show's newest co-host stepped up to defend her oft-proclaimed favorite male actor Tom Cruise, professing her love for him -- "He's the perfect man" -- despite his public stance against antidepressants. "I don't care what he thinks about antidepressants," said Rosie, displaying the Vanity Fair with baby Suri's pictures, "I still love him." O'Donnell has been vocal about her own use of pharmaceuticals, and -- as she informed us yesterday -- has been taking them faithfully, whereupon Joy wondered aloud what might happen if she stopped taking the drugs.

Rosie also suggested that the new "Survivor -- which is being divided by ethnicities -- should add a fifth team of mixed race bound by homosexuality, because, as she explained, "Gay people always win [reality shows]."
