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.

People do not bark at dogs. Let Rosie keep on barking, maybe she will feel good about herself. I sure don't. Dreamgirls deserved an Oscar nomination. Go figure.

If you are to sorry to go see the movie Dreamgirls, you shouldn't make the comment that it probably sucks. It is actually a good movie, then you would probably have to remember what it was like back then to relate to the story line. As for the Oprah vs Rosie, it is for publicity anyway so let it go. Next week they will probably have dinner together.

Rossie has no place anylonger, no-where for her to go anymore, Rossie has hit the bottom and will never make it out of the pitt of hate she has.She is not even happy for Ellen , Ellen was treated so unfare but she made a come back and is not bitter by the way people turned on her.She is a better person today, a stronger person, someone with alot of luv and friendship to give to so many, Rossie give Ellen a call say your sorry for turning your back to her and ask her for help, Ellen just might be able to set This rantting media hatefull slut straight, so to speak,in short Rossie get over it and yourself, life is to short.

Stop the crap against Rosie's looks. That has NOTHING to do with her opinions. I love Oprah. I don't think there is anything between Rosie and her. I like Rosie as well. Donald Trump has always been in the wrong on this one.
We all know what Rosie said about Trump is true, it is public record if you want to see for yourself. That is why he can only fire back with cutting her appearance! Just think if because of your opinion on something someone told you that you had an "ugly butt!" That's intelligent!!

Rosie is disgusting! I stopped watching The View because of her. Not only is she obnoxious, she acts like she owns the show.

Not only did Oprah say that the children did not deserve her money, but she also called them "Those White People" with a disguisted tone in her voice. One would get the idea that she does not like white people--wouldn't they?? And, shouldn't she apologize for her racial slur?? Oprah--oplogize?? She is above that!! Yes, she "used" this boy for her monatary gain!!

I think Oprah was very wrong to bring that young man her program. She is no better than any of the other "shock" talk shows. Although I think R. O'Donnell should learn to keep her mouth in check, I do agree w/ her about this. I find Oprah to be too impressed w/ her celebrity. She may do good things w/ her money but she makes no bones about broadcasting what she does to the world. She needs to take a reality pill.

I have come to dislike rosie more then i ever thought possible. she is a nasty horrible tacky personality that has RUINED the VIEW . I will never
watch again. I hope this....awful "thing" is removed from public spot light so we do NOT have to watch. Speaking as a open GAY male....I find here revolting and a major slap in our face.
