Madonna's Got Rosie's Back

1/11/2007 2:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comMadonna has chimed in on the Donald Trump/Rosie O'Donnell war of words, and has come to the defense of her longtime gal pal.

The Material Mom, who co-starred with O'Donnell in "A League of Their Own," told "Today's" Meredith Vieira, "People are giving Rosie a hard time. I wish they'd stop. I don't think it's fair." Madge revealed she was on vacation when news of the public feud broke, and quickly emailed Rosie to get the real scoop. "I have to hear it from the horse's mouth." Those are her words, not ours!

Madonna believes that since O'Donnell is a standup comic, saying controversial things in monologues is par for the course. "I have a feeling that if every stand-up comic was penalized for saying politically incorrect or provocative things, I think they'd all be hung in the public square." Can you say Michael Richards?

Her Madgesty went on "Today" to plug her new animated film, "Arthur and the Invisibles," which opens Friday.

First #76 Stephan you sound like a ass-kissing idiot. Secondly, look back not so long ago when mothers were begging Madonna to stop all her overly sexual stuff. These mothers had little girls who thought it was okay to have oral sex with any guy because Madonna was doing it. To wear anything as long a your tits were showing and no panties, gee I wonder where Britney got that from? The problem with Madonna she didn't care about other people's kids and now her kids are under martial law. Also, she pushed the gay agenda down our throats.

So Madonna emails Rosie and now has the whole story. For Madonna to say Rosie is a comedian is simply making excuses for her behavior. Madonna ,its not what she said its what she demonstrated with her tossing her hair to one side. The view is a talk show not a stand-up
comedian act. Maybe she needs to take her comedian act on the road. I think Madonna should give Rosie a copy of her children's book. "How to play nice".
Rosie if you can dish it out you should be able to handle it, without bringing in Madonna and Barbara Walters. Rosie mention on the view how Ellen Dengres called her when she had a television series how Ellen wanted to come out on her show. Rosie was just name dropping like Ellen is her friend seeing how well Ellen is doing on her show. Rosie you need to stop dragging people into the mess you created yourself. I know Donald didn't have kind words for you either. What does one say after being bashed on the View, you fight back with words.

What in the Hell you guys are talking about?? all one sided point of view.
Everybody loves Rosie, She speaks her mind. She is being real and thats what people liked about her. Sincere and truthful and only few people in this crazy world has a strength like her. She stands for what she believes. Donald Trump is arrogant, Ruthless man, he doesnt care about other people. And if you check the other website about survey, Rosie won millions of votes from people who believe in her. She always stands out at the end of the game, as usual. As for Donald, millions of people turn off by him. It all started with Ms USA, is because Donald is organizer of the pegeant, he broke the rules and forgive this young hot chick and continue the title. And to show the World that he can bend any rules if he wants, because this girl is soooo hot for him. HE THINKS HE IS GOD, he is a millionaire but he cant even fixed his own ugly hair. And as for Madonna, im proud of her, she defends her friend and thats what we call a true freindship and for her English accent, its natural if you sometimes had this accent , of course she is married to and english man. I've been married to a british man and sometimes i could suddenly has an accent, you dont even noticed. it comes out naturally, if you have companion with you all the time of course you sometimes adopt their accent naturally. I CONTRATULATE ROSIE, she such a brave woman, and stands for herself. KEEP IT UP ROSIE!!! we need more women like you. Truthful and honest.
