Rosie: Anna Nicole Was "Balloon Without Tether"

2/12/2007 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comRosie O'Donnell and her cohorts on "The View" had their first chance to address the death of Anna Nicole Smith, and while they took pity on Anna Nicole herself, they showed little mercy for Howard K. Stern or the entertainment news shows that paid her for those slurred, difficult-to-watch interviews.

Rosie, for her part, inflamed some viewers by imitating Anna Nicole unfavorably on Thursday's show, which was taped just hours before Anna's death. Today, lamenting the starlet's death, Rosie compared Smith to a Macy's Thanksgiving parade balloon without anyone to hold it back. She charged that Howard K. Stern had an "addiction" problem as well.

Meanwhile, Rosie let fellow comedienne Margaret Cho express her thoughts on Smith's death, posting Cho's own blog posting about the matter on In it, Cho compared Smith to "ripe summer peaches hot from the sun, or rice pudding made from grains boiled for over a day on the stove," and called her "the most beautiful woman I had ever seen."

Rosey, you are a disgrace to women. You are disgusting-looking fat ass slob. Donald Trump is on point about you. And worst of all is looking at your mouth. It looks like an ass-hole ready to take a shit. And how true that is about you: you open your mouth, which looks like an asshole ready to take a dump, and out comes your invectives about other people. And in death, Anna Nicole. You have no sense of propriety. And I am fed up. Go have a sex-change operation. Be the man which you are masquarding in as a dyke. Get out of the race of women. Then again, men wouldn't want you in their race either. Thank God for this forum for me to sound off. Do us all a favor, the thousands who can't stand you, and take your fat ass off any public forum where we don't have to look at that ass-hole mouth of your's and the diahrrea that somes spilling out of it!

Rosie, I liked your previous show, and thought a good person, until lately, with all of your bashing of people, just for people to watch, I might add, are now boring and predictable. Where is the talent in that? You do not just express your VIEW, but exhonerate anyone who may have a different on. I no longer watch you for now you just look like a "fool" and where is the talent in that?

Honestly people, haven't any of you heard of an 'Analogy'...hmmm??? That's what was Ro was doing in that little blip from the show! and it was a very appropriate analogy @ that. How many people do we know in our own lives that are like " untethered ballons"?? Lots of our loved ones suffer from various addictions...and like ANS,some of our loved ones have VERY destructive companions 'attached' to them. It's a very sad case,and I for one am going to keep that baby girl in my prayers.
Don't trash & bash the messenger folks,ANS was well on her way to this end long before any of us had an opinion or gave a flying fig about her problems! We better just all hope that little girl has a better chance @ a healthy beginning than her poor mother ever did.

Rosie why is your opinion the only one that seems to count in any dicussion? You made a wreck of your talk show and for the life of me I do not understand why Barbara Walters even hired you let alone cower down with your back and forth junk with The Trump. You have come in like a bulldozer trying to mow everyone down and take over the show. It used to be such a good show - but I can rarely watch now with you on it. Elizabeth and Joy, you are true women to put up with her mouth. Stand up to her and don't allow her to be the center of things.

A Balloon? Isn't that the pan calling the kettle "black"? It must be an awful feeling or conscience, if you have one, to know the only way for popularity is hurting others. Remember, what goes around.............................................. And yours will

For once I can agree with Rosie. Anna-Nicole had no one looking for her best interests. They exploited her constantly. I have known many with problems, whether it be drugs or alcohol or whatever the addictions and with know real support system only made recovery even harder. She should of been whisked off for treatment for her addictions and her noticable grief over her son's death instead of interview after interview. If this Howard and all her yes people really cared they would of seen this coming and tried to prevent it.
