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.

While I am not a Rosie fan, I do have to side with her on this one. Oprah should have not of had that child nor his family on her show. Anyway you look at it, it was exploitive. Those lost years are that boys business. Details should not be `shared' with the general public.

I think Oprah is Racist.. She gives alot of money to African children and why does she have that Legends Ball with all the black women?? There are white Legends Too.. and there are lots of Dirt poor Children here in The American Apalachians that could use some of that tax write off money she throw's around.

PLEASE!!!
ROSIE IS ON A SHOW CALLED THE VIEW...
IT IS HER JOB TO GIVE HER VIEW ON CURRENT TOPICS IN THE NEWS.
EVERYONE NEEDS TO STOP TAKING HER WORDS OUT OF CONTEXT..AND TWISTING THEM TO MEAN SOMETHING SHE DID NOT SAY.
IF YOU WATCH AND LISTEN TO THE WHOLE STORY...
YOU WILL SEE THAT SHE WAS CRITICIZING THE PARENTS FOR LETTING THEIR CHILD SPEAK SO SOON AFTER SUCH A HORRIBLE THING.
ROSIE IS AWESOME...
FREE SPEECH IS NOT A CRIME...

Rosie will cause the View to get cancelled, I can hardly wait until that happens! Right now Barbara is enjoying the high ratings that is a direct result of the controversial statements that Rosie makes. But, the day will come when Barbara can bear no more and the show will fall by the wayside as right now Rosie is the only reason the show survives, face it, Joy and Elizabeth have no substance, and Barbara is such a bore.
I beleive the Donald was being truthful in regards to what he said Barbara told him about Rosie.
I am glad Oprah, whatever her feelings, has chosen not to respond to Rosie's comments. You should not put gas on a burning fire!!!
I am not Oprah's biggest fan, but I admire her principles.

I seriously think Rosie has to do something else with her career other than picking conflicts with everyone. Your right she takes the biggest names and starts a problem with them. Who next week Rosie??

Yeah thank you stripper girl who gave us Brad Pitt.. But I think I like Angelina better, something about her exotic ways. Did you here how Pitt gave her vibrating underwear and he had the control so he could just flip a switch whenever he wanted. I want my boyfriend to buy me one of those!!!

Rosie O Donnel has stepped over the line with recent comments pertaining to the attack on September 11, 2001. She indicated that the Towers were brought down by explosive charges and that the entire event was somehow a plot by our government. This ignorant hateful bitch should not be allowed to air her idiotic slander on the airways.

This moronic display of iggnorance and disregard for the thousands who died and the deaths of our brave firefighters and police must be answered. Pull her show off the air and demand an apology from this verbally abusive fool.
