Rosie to Oprah - C'mon, Fight!

1/23/2007 9:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah vs. RosieRosie O'Donnell is picking a fight with Oprah over the talk queen's controversial interview with kidnapped teen Shawn Hornbeck. Lots of people are outraged, and many are screaming exploitation. But will O v. Ro turn into another Trump-scale nuclear conflict?

Sources tell TMZ that Oprah's M.O. is always the silent treatment, and that she's not going to get into a Trump-Rosie-style war with O'Donnell. For instance, sources say that Oprah can't stand Dr. Phil McGraw, who she thinks is utterly ungrateful to her. But rather than smack him down publicly, she's dissed privately by not showing up to significant events in his life.



O's given the same treatment over the years to others who have displeased her, like David Letterman and Tom Cruise, publicly denying that there was any feud. That may still not stop Rosie, who's easily triggered when she thinks kids are exploited.


Brad: "Strippers Changed My Life"


Brad Pitt gallery: Click to launch photos Brad Pitt says that it was a stripper, not the muse of drama, that got him into acting. He tells Newsweek magazine in its Oscar roundtable that one of his first jobs was to be the wheelman for a group of strippers (picking up their clothes, collecting the cash, etc.), and that one dancer was taking an acting class with famous acting coach Roy London. Pitt went along for the class, and now he no longer picks up strippers' clothes. "Strippers changed my life," admits Pitt.



Isaiah Can Call Me Fa**ot Anytime, Says Everett


isaiah washington Isaiah Washington may have met with gay leaders yesterday to talk about using the F-w ord, but at least one openly-out actor says Isaiah can call him "fa**ot" anytime he wants. Rupert Everett told Planet Gossip, "I like being called faggot, queer. Everyone's got phobias, even gays for straights." Even though Washington's being "educated" by GLAAD and other groups on the dangers of name-calling, and will do public-service announcements, keeping things bottled up isn't necessarily the best thing, thinks Rupert. "I'd rather be called a faggot by someone who felt it – then you know where they stand."


Stallone KO'd Sex for "Rocky"

Sylvester Stallone


Sylvester Stallone delivered a knock-out to his libido during the filming of his recent film "Rocky Balboa" to improve his on-screen performance, he says. "At 60 you don't have as much energy as you did back when you were 30, so you have to conserve every bit you can," said Sly, via MSNBC. "Giving up sex isn't really that hard to do and it's well known that it can improve your performance in sports - or on a movie."



Party Favors: Aniston and Cox To Lock Lips? ... "Top Chef" Villain Gets Bottle Service ... Jamie Foxx's Liquid Love ... Billy Joel to Sing Super National Anthem


Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox Arquette are set to become a lot more than "Friends" on the season finale of "Dirt." According to TVGuide.com's Michael Ausiello (via Page Six), the real-life pals will get it on in the show, even though their characters are arch-enemy magazine editors. Is something in the offing for Bonnie Fuller and Janice Min? ... "Top Chef" archvillain Marcel Vigneron got an eyeful at a club in Vegas when a stranger broke a bottle over his head, he tells Las Vegas Weekly. He had to go to the hospital and get stitched up. ... Jamie Foxx apparently likes to douse his female companions in Sex-on-the-Beach cocktails -- literally. A Belvedere vodka rep says that it's Jamie's "thing." ... Billy Joel will perform the national anthem at the Super Bowl in Miami on Feb. 4, and will join Prince in the halftime show. He's the first performer to sing the national anthem twice -- he did it in 1989.

We, are not amused.    

Six comment worthy items all combined into to one, BECAUSE YOU F*TARDS ARE TOO LAZY TO FLESH THEM OUT AND MAKE THEM STAND ALONE!
I don't usually bother with wasting my hard earned cash going to see movies, but I'mgoing to tell you boys and girls, go see "Dreamgirls" Not that its a great movie, but because the preformance turned in by Jennifer Hudson is one for the ages! The members of the Academy didn't give it a Best Picture nod and Whatshername didn't get a Best Actress nod. Jennifer Hudson can flat out sign!

Not sure if Rosie can be considered a "She", I have an old old cow on the farm that looks mutch better. Her "or it" bitching about others is about the only attention she can draw to her disgusting self, so I would suppose we will see a lot more of it.

Rosie needs to go away. First of all, that young man's parents brought him to the Oprah show. She didn't drag him out of his out and force him to answer questions. They knew when they were on a plane to Chicago that Oprah would be asking him questions about his ordeal. So what?

Yeah...    

Stop giving Rosie the attention she so desperately seeks! Ignore her - and pray that she crawls back under her oversized rock.

She's only "picking on" high profile people so she can end up in the news - and it's working - DAILY! Stop watching "The View".. stop writing about her... stop reading about her.. just ignore her!

Oprah has class. Rosie ... well ... you read the tabloids and the papers. There is no comparison.

As for Dreamgirls being shut out for Best Picture ... that's a shame.

I'ma ask this one more time ... what happened to "Rocky's" face??

Okay, lets get this straight. Everyone has used this boy for their own purposes...the media, that bastard that took him to begin with, the parents who put him on tv right away, the studio who put him on tv right away, Rosie for her own purposes, Oprah for her ratings (not that she needed that much help); for those of you who think Oprah is a saint--she's a person and a media hound like everyone else. For those who think Rosie is a bitch-she's a person and a media hound like everyone else.

To me the only difference between the two is one has her own empire and the other wishes she had. Two peas in a pod.

And Wayne...slow down darling. If you have a computer I'm sure you know how to type.

Stop global warming--eat a cow.

Rosie does things for the publicity. She's awful...not sure why people like her! I refuse to watch the View with her as I refused to watch her show before...then the stint with her magazine...If you recall, it was McCall's and she bought it out and put herself everywhere! I quickly cancelled my subscription! I did not ask for her magazine nor do I care to watch her or listen to her.
Oprah has class and truely does help others...mmmm..maybe Rosie should take some notes on how to win friends and influence people.

...yes, oprah is such a saint. I'm surprised americans let her get away with the sad comments she made about their children. How they didn't deserve her money because they didn't dream "high" or rather, "well enough" for her liking -- even though it was the parents of these materialistic, superficial children that made her oh, so rich. she's a bitch, and you all deserve her. at least rosie had the "balls" to call that slime-ball trump out. even on these boards, rosie is attacked primarily for her looks. that says it all. btw, I haven't seen it, but dreamgirls probably sucks. saw little miss sunshine last nite, and that was great....

Seriously TMZ, are you on Rosie's payroll? Your always pimping/propping her. It really takes away from your credibility when a reader can look at a pic on your site and know what your take will be on a celeb before reading it. Just saying...
