Rosie vs. Oprah

in Another Bitchfest?

1/22/2007 1:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rosie O'Donnell, Oprah WinfreyRosie O'Donnell took to her blog again, this time taking swipe at the Talk Queen herself, Oprah Winfrey.

At issue was Oprah's interview last Thursday with kidnap victim Shawn Hornbeck and his family. Rosie, in her non-sensical, haiku-meets-illiterate-rambling kinda way, refers to Hornbeck on her blog as "paraded out for america to see." She goes on:

"after 4 years captive
a new haircut couldn't hide
his tormented eyes"

But Rosie -- long considered an advocate for the rights of children (and homosexuals, and fat people, and Broadway musicals) -- did find someone above rebuke; the parents of the other kidnapped boy, Ben Ownby:Oprah gallery: Click to launch photos

"ben
will not be appearing
on tv today
a moment of sanity"


Careful Rosie, going after the Donald is one thing, but you might not want to take on the O. Has anyone seen James Frey lately?

Rosie really needs to shut the f*** up. I was suprised to see the family on Oprah, but that is on his parents and him; not Oprah. Bring back Starlett...she could use a job. LOL

Rosie's right on this one. As a mother, all I would want to do is protect and shield my son.

When is someone going to shut her ass up?! Rosie is an embarrassment to those of us that own a television, radio, computer or seeing eye dog. I hope Oprah responds by bitch slapping her silly.

Rosie needs to keep her mouth shut and worry about herself. Before she goes flapping that big jaw of hers she should really take a look in the mirror and maybe she would see that she herself has a lot of problems inside and out.

I'm tired of Rosie. She talks from both sides of her mouth. Oprah was very respectful of the families. The families could have said no. I think Shawn is helping millions of people by sharing his story. I don't think anyone would want to exploit those boys. Rosie claims that she is paid for her "View." That doesn't mean I have to listen. Rosie gets her knowledge of any topic from TV. From politics to daily events: She is uneducated and ignorant.

Wow, look what happens when the media takes things out of context.....Rosie did not make any comment whatsoever about Oprah. Sad how media spins things out of control. How about all the good that Rosie does for kids and Katrina victims? Funny how nobody goes on and on about the positive things, only negative. Shame on the twisters and the haters.

Rosie is absolutely right. Rape victims are not even identified by name and yet the parents of this poor boy thought this was a great opportunity to get on Oprah and exploit the tragic situation. The other parents did not parade their son on Oprah and everyone in the audience let out a sigh of approval when Oprah mentioned he would not appear. I understand Oprah wanting this for ratings but the parents should be ashamed.

Rosie: SHUT THE HELL UP!!!

You accused Trump of thinking he was "the moral compass" for 20-year olds, but you think you are the "moral compass" for the world. You have become (or more likely just revealed yourself to be) a loud-mouthed, holier-than-thou, know-it-all, BITCH!

It's one thing to discuss issues or people — you slam everyone and everything on a whim. Another person had it really right here on a post a week or so ago -- you really showed your hypocrisy when you lambasted Kelly Ripa ON AIR and then when Kelly responded (like a lady) ON AIR, you criticized her and said she should have commented to you privately. Why didn't you comment to her privately.

You have become a JOKE!! Get off your pedestal and walk out the door but don't let it hit you in the ass on your way out. Oh, and by the way, my gay friends wish you'd shut the hell up and wish to tell you that you DO NOT SPEAK FOR THEM!! Shut up, shut up, shut up!!

Why is everbody picking on Rosie? .She is entitled to say what is her "VIEW". She is right on with not parading the kid on tv. It is not a bitch fight against O. The media twists and twist for ratings.

Down with stupid people!    

Rosie is a bully, however she is a child advocate, and I do not believe that children should be put on display like that. At least Rosie doesn't put on airs like Oprah. Oprah tends to think she is a world of her own, all self richeous and full of B.S. One day she is talking about the plight of the world and then she is hawking ipods as a must have. Please open your eyes. Oprah is about the money not healing the world! Really!

Oprah is a ratings whore...and she thinks she knows so much about children, yet doesnt have one (adopted or birth) of her own. Everyone wants to jump Rosie. Rosie is only saying out loud what alot of people are thinking. Since she did it in her blog, its her right to put it there...just because her opinion is not popular doesnt mean she isnt allowed to have one...TMZ should be ashamed for their obvious attempted spin on this story...

Donald Trump should have been condemned for allowing some back woods hick girl to insinuate that New York City is corruptive. New Yorkers should have run him out of town. The City made him rich and then he allowed this whore to let the whole world think that its NYC's fault she is a whore...since i am very familiar with her home state, I can tell you that most females are very similar...just whores...looking for money...and possibly a child to collect social services from.

Rosie has gone too far now. It was the kids and parents choice to do Oprah's show. Why don't she talk about herself for a change.

janis...number 13,


Uou are right, she has her view and because she is a public figure, she can be "picked on".
Are people not entitled to their own views?
Or is ROSIE HO the only view that counts?
Who died and made this c..t queen?
Who would want her aa a queen anyway?
Noone would want to be her"king"

Backtalk    

The dumbest thing I've ever heard come out of Rosie's mouth was when she claimed that "Christian Fundamentalism is every bit as as dangerous as radical Islam". Okaaaay.... But her comments about the Donald were right on the money! Her comments about this boy being exploited after living 4 years of hell are also right on! Not a Rosie fan here, but when she's right, she's right.
