It's War!!!

1/9/2007 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A full-out battle between Rosie O'Donnell and Barbara Walters has broken out at "The View" over the Donald and his Rosie-bashing.

Rosie lashed out at boss Babwa yesterday morning in a pre-show dressing-room bitch-off, calling her "a [bleeping] liar," according to Page Six, and was furious with Walters for not sticking up for her during the Rosie-Trump feud of the last two weeks.

When Walters saw Rosie yesterday morning, a couple of hours before "The View" aired, she tried to hug Ro – but Rosie, who'd been on vacation over the holidays, wouldn't touch her. And, according to the Post, she fumed, "You didn't call me for 10 g**damn days ... You never called [Donald] a liar."

Then, on yesterday's show, Babwa proceeded to brand Trump as such, which prompted the Donald to tell 'EXTRA,' "Barbara lied, as she knows very well." Rosie and Walters' rep says it was "hardly a squabble" and that everyone has "moved on."









Brit's Pre-PURE Sake Spree


Britney Spears got in the mood to, well, pass out early on New Year's Eve with a good ol' Japanese oiling up beforehand, despite what her reps say caused her premature departure. We have sources who saw the drink-by-drink as Brit put away "lots of sake" before she made it to Las Vegas' PURE nightclub for a reported $400,000 party-hosting gig.

Yesterday, reports swirled that Britney might be losing her six-figure appearance fee for ditching PURE early, and that her exit may have been caused, in part, by the catcalls of other PURE patrons, but a club rep told us they were overjoyed, saying, "The crowd LOVED Britney and they cheered her on everywhere she went... She is always welcome at PURE." No word yet on whether all the sake-slurping before her paid gig would affect her contract.


Angelina Jolie gallery: Click to launch photosAngelina Says She Didn't Mean to Slam Madonna


It could've been such a delicious catfight, but Angelina Jolie moved quickly yesterday to quell any speculation that she'd taken the Material Mama to task for her adoption of a Malawian baby.

Angie was quoted in a French magazine as saying, with reference to Madonna's controversial adoption, "Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal." Yesterday, however, as People reports, Angelina said that the article "included many falsehoods" and omitted positive comments. Added Jolie in her statement, "All that should count is the happiness of her little David." And so the claws recede.

Rehabbing Miss USA Tara Conner's famously supercharged hormones were very much on display at a cover photo shoot for New York Dog magazine, says Page Six. Before the to-do over her randy behavior, Conner was "ridiculously flirtatious" with male photo assistants at the session. Alas, Conner won't make the cover because she couldn't do the interview ... Sacha Baron Cohen tells the Los Angeles Times that, by his count, Borat had the cops called on him 37 times during the filming of "Borat," and that he never washed that gray suit once or wore deodorant for, you know, authenticity's sake ... James Cameron's long-awaited "Avatar" is finally coming to theaters – in 2009. The $190 million sci-fi epic will "blow you to the back wall of the theater," promises Cameron. ... Van Halen might have to reunite after all – at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The rockers made the cut this year, along with REM, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, the Ronettes, and Patti Smith.

Please, do us all a favor, DUMP ROSIE!!! I no longer want to watch any show she is on. How can she bite the hand that feeds her. If she represents the Lesbians of this world, my heart aches for them, because she is the classic BULLY BITCH. How can her partner stand by her? Rosie is an angry woman. LOSE HER BARBRA. All was well until you hired her. The anti-christ is alive and living on THE VIEW!!!

Rosie O'Donnell is the only person on network TV who is given a daily show to rant and rave about anyone and anything she wants.

Rosie is a radical BULLY. She dishes it out but can't take it back.

Sure ratings are up because it's like tuning in to watch a car chase, a burning house, a tornado in action. It's like morbid curiosity because EVERYONE KNOWS this show with Rosie is going to crash and burn.

Why should Rosie have a platform to rant and spew?

Whatever    

Donald, Rosie and Walters are three losers. Britney had to ditch Pure early because she had been drinking all day. She should get a trip to rehab not more money to blow on blow and booze.

1. Man, that Rosie reminds me of a rabid has-been fat comedian... oh wait.

2. Britney Spears is a lazy piece of crap and clubs are for idiots who like to spend money.

3. Angelina Jolie is self-righteous but at least doesn't use a fake British accent.

4. A hot chick is flirty? Woah.

This Rosie/Donald feud is absolutely all about publicity. Everyone knows they both have big egos and bigger mouths to match. Afterall, if you don't make a stink once in a while, people don't talk about you. They might even forget you exist. People with egos that huge can't stand not having attention.

He's Boring now    

Walters should turn in any journalistic credentials she has earned over 6 decades. She has lost all credibility she ever had with where this VIEW show has gone. Meant to be a light view of things and done with the right intentions, she has lost control over content and its explosive panel members--STAR and ROSIE.

No more Specials WaWa Ok, for they wont be taken, nor will you, seriously any longer.

RETIRE

Rosie is an idiot and her Holie should hook up since they both obviously love to be in the center of attention and will say anything they can to get there. What low-lifes.

Trump and his GOD AWFUL hair need to take the high road and be quiet. Rosie yells at everyone. Him yelling back makes him look just as bad as her. No brains or class either one of them.
BTW Babwa is an old bat.
