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.

Little Miss Sunshine was good, but definitely did not deserve a top movie nomination. Brad Pitt was excellent in his role in Babel, whether you like him or not, and definitely should have beat out Will Smith. I assume it was personal. Byonce's dad is going to have a fit and probaly blame her lack of a nomination on racism even though Jennifer Hudson was nominated.

Oprah is a self absorbed person and doesn't have the guts to stand up to people that she pisses off! She's a loser!

Ro versus the big O. Over something stupid. Big surprise. Keep sleazy names in the news. They should both, along with the Trumpeter, merchandise the franchise of EGO's GONE WILD. When that fails, and it will, try AIR-HEADS--THE REAL THING. Or...HEADS PERMANENTLY STUCK UP THEIR...(YOU FILL IN THE LAST WORD)..; Now there's a concept I can live with.

Brad Pitt wasn't that good . HIs acting and the movie was rather boring. I was bored out of my mind the first hour of Babel. I'm not surprised.

Rosie just needs to shut the hell up. Who really, honestly cares what she thinks or has to say?!? We need to stop paying attention to her so she will slowly go away and she will understand that she is just a loser in the public eye who has to start fights with everyone just to get the spotlight because she can't do it any other way.

Give Rosie a break. Everything this woman says is blown up by the media. The exact same comments Rosie made about this child being on Oprah and in the media were made on Nancy Grace and other shows, but nobody is splashing their names and faces all over the internet and the gossip shows. Get a life people.

Yes, Ginger Gargoyle - Chicago won best picture in 2003.

Rosie is a bitch. You can smell her disgusting fat ass right through the screen. Okay, what else is wrong with her other than her looks? She is a hypocritical tw*t. She jumped all over Tom Selleck's butt on her show about his membership in the NRA, but at the same time, she was doing ads for K-Mart - at the time, THE BIGGEST SELLER OF FIREARMS IN THE U.S.! Also, her bodyguards that protected her brood of unwashed rugrats carried guns. She's special, though, right? Yeah, like the type that needs to wear a helmet.

Oprah is doing the right thing by keeping her silence. Does Rosie really think she's going to hurt her? Rosie is definitely enormous in size, but she's still a pretty tiny fish in a big GIANT Oprah sea! She's going to get eaten - and not in the way she wishes. Trust me, Oprah's getting her revenge. It will just be gradual and quiet - Rosie won't know what hit her until she's in a trailer with her brood, waiting for a welfare check to arrive. She better stock up on those Ho-Ho's while she can!

If you want to blame someone about Oprah's show last week, blame Sean's parents. I wouldn't have done it that soon either, if I had been that boy's parents, but Oprah didn't go there with the military and force them onto the show.

Regarding O'Donnell's latest tirade, it was a bit creepy having Shawn Hornbeck appearing on the Oprah show so soon after being located. I would've thought his parents would've deferred doing this until professional psychiatric individual and family sessions could begin. Anyway, Oprah has a lot of nerve thinking Dr. Phil is an ingrate; apparently for not fawning all over Oprah's boots because she was the one propelling his career. First, he's not that great. Second, until a recent rerun of Oprah's 25th anniversary show, she finally revealed that it was at the urging of Roger Ebert, whom she dated a few times (she could only remember once instead of twice), that she pursue the talkshow thing, even giving her names and numbers, and also helping to promote her name to his contacts. Clearly Oprah has never once uttered any gratitude for Ebert really being the one that helped launch her career (not too mention ever dating her). On this show, Oprah implied that she never mentioned anything about the Ebert launch before because she didn't think she should mention it. Oprah, now who's the ingrate? Oprah is so two-faced. And, O'Donnell shut your fat mouth about exploiting children. Any time you mentoin what you're doing with yours on the View, you're also exploiting them for your own gain. Hey O'Donnell, remember how you bragged on one of the View shows that you let your kids bath with you and they asked about what was between your legs? Not only was this exploiting them, but it was also creepy and abusive.
