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.

You would have thought by now that Barbara Walters class would be rubbing off on Rosie. Get some class and stop being an attention hog. If your talk show went south due to your bickering with the stars what makes you think "The View" will put up with it. Guess you can't teach a old dog new tricks.
I think Donald does it just to get her going. He knows she will show the world how stupid she really is just by her actions.

I've so much had it with this SHE -COW alias Rosie. Trust me, Im really looking forward to somebody to put this ugly -pooface in the dungy. How does her girlfriend sees her in the morning? Guess she just think of her money she will be spending at noon, and ignore the dog look. Oprah is tooo classy to git involved with a pooface dike. As for Dr. Phil, I cannot be too sympathetic. She created him, and hey! You git what you ask for. Next time, try and create a black Dr. Phil. Chaw!

I have watched Dirt and its pretty boring. I mean if this is Hollywood, they can have it.

And If Cox has to resort to using her friends ALREADY to come and the show and do a Lesbian thing with her that show is doomed.
I can assure you Courtney--the last thing I want to see in my nightmares is you kissing Jennifer Aniston.
What a crock. And if Jen Aniston stoops this low to do it out of sympathy, she will have NO oscars in her future. Just my opinion.

As for Brad Pitt he is a pretty boy and that is all.
The best pic he ever did was Thelma and Louise. It has been downhill ever since as far as his acting goes. but he is good looking. That is what HE has goin on. And yes Babel was boring.

I seriously hope Mark Wahlberg or Alan Arkin get the Oscar and the little girl from Little Miss Sunshine gets hers, too. Altho Jen Hudson is a great singer, that little girl was great too.

Rosie has plunged the "View" to an all time low. With her constant degrading of individuals more goal oriented and accomplished than she . My first impression was that it all centered around "publicity." But a look at her track record dispelled that theory. How we view others, depends alot on how we view ourselves. Rosie needs to cleanse the "Lens" through which she views others first. Or better yet, "Remove the beam from thine own eye, that ye may see clearly to remove the twig from thy neighbors'

First off, the parents should have never agreed to go on Oprah's Show so soon. Their primary concern shoudl ahve been the welfare of Shawn. Who in their right mind owuld subject their kid to a tv show right after being found? the whole thing is reidiculous. And yes, Oprah has too big an ego. Where do you think she gets all this money she has? Fomr the peoepl who buy the products fomr her show or the commercials she shows advertisies on the show. She is not God! Take a reality check people. She is a woman who has several houses even though she doesn;t need them. She is someone who has to tell you how many thousands of rose bushes she has in the CA back yard. then she gets on her show and asks peopel to donate to her causes. I dont; ask her to donate to mine! As far as Dr. Phil,...he owes her nothing. I dont; watch him however if he was paid to work ont h show then she got what she paid for. End of story.

Vicki..........practice what you preach....regarding respect...when you refer to people as retards, hounds dogs, black trash, etc... ..respect is earned ,

It's a media frenzy...for stories, news, and ratings... .
His family is to blame, if Oprah didn't get the story... someone else would...makes no difference...people want to know...the scoop...and it's on every station....no big surprise.. His family had him at a press conference...the day after...he came home..perhaps you missed it , that was last week.... ah...before O's interview...

Karma...

Both of them are bitchy, but for different reasons. Rosie doesn't know when to shut up. She used to be funny, but now she just bitches about everything. Joy Behar is the only funny one on the show.

Furthermore, rather than blast Oprah, Rosie ought to be taking on Shawn's parents for putting him on the show. They could have said no. Of course, when did Rosie get to be the arbitor of what parents should and shouldn't do?

As for Oprah, there is nothing wrong with admitting a feud. Public feuds are for more fun than private ones.

I can understand why she's mad at Dr. Phil. Is there a Muppet version of Oprah on Sesame Street? No, but there is the Muppet version of Dr. Phil, Dr. Feel, and they're both pretty funny.

Of course, Oprah should be grateful to Dr. Phil. If he hadn't picked the jury that ruled in her favor over the "slandering" of hamburger, she might not be the billionaire that she is now.

You know, rosie is going to end up turning a lot of people off with all of these attacks on everyone. Granted at times she may be correct, but her method of expressing her disapproval is a complete turn off.
