"Idol" Blocks Rosie's "View" -- No Clips for You!

3/7/2007 2:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"American Idol" is retaliating against Rosie O'Donnell and "The View" by forbidding the gabfest from showing "Idol" clips, after Rosie slammed the world's biggest TV show one too many times.

As is their habit, Rosie and the "View" crew started to talk about last night's "Idol," but had no video to go with it. Ro explained the lack of footage was because "Idol" was unhappy over her slamming of the judges, her suggestions about Paula's "possible inattentiveness," and her accusations of racism and sizeism on yesterday's broadcast.

Sagacious den mother Babwa put it best: "You don't insult them with your left hand and ask for favors with your right." And Joy suggested a solution for the problem -- putting an on-screen Ro-Screed disclaimer that warns, "Rosie's views are Rosie's."

Ummm, I don't think it's TMZ slamming Rosie. Looks like AI to me. And Rosie deserves it. She is a loud mouth.

How many shows have brought up the double standard about Frenchie and Antella? It's not just Rosie talking about this. Come on lets get real hear. Are they going to ban clips on all shows because they dont like what people are saying? If so they are acting like Nazi's or facists. Rosie saying Paula is a drunk? Isnt that a running joke now in Hollywood? Jay Leno makes jokes about her and her drinking problem. Everyone makes jokes about Paula. AI is just scared shitless that they are going to be looked at as racist. They need to suck it up. They made the choice to keep the slut and now they have to face the consequences. Or get thicker skin. They are acting like babies.

And millions think the other way and don't agree with Ms. Rose O. That is the beauty of being able to spout your point of view. Why is she such an expert on EVERYthing lately, her view point is so one sided and clouded with rage at times.

It's obvious Simon isn't racist over blacks. He has a black girlfriend and he seems to favor the blacks over the whites. Rosie, once again, in pig like fashion is yammering about nothing. I don't think Simon is a saint nor do I like his tactics but I would take the entire group of judges over the morons on "The View". They are loser of the first order.

Rosie is an unhappy, overweight, slob.
She is miserable with her self and therefore wants to tear down everyone else. Get a life Roise....and Babwa needs to get another host.

Rosie is right! I'm tired of all the political correctness. One should be able to say what they think and big enough to take the consequences. American Idol is a stupid show anyway and I hope it retires SOON!

Exactly how is TMZ slamming Rosie here? Rosie, in my opinion, is just an attention seeking wash-up who will do or say anything to keep her name in the media. The fact that Barbara and The View continue to tolerate her mess speaks volumes of both Barbara and her show.

I will be so thrilled when media land snufs out her presence from the airwaves. She's a wanna be media hog, and uses the View to vocalize her outlandish opinions. If Wawa and the producers don't kick her fat homo a** off the View, they won't have a View. Rosie was great when she started her career, but when they gave her the Rosie talk show, her head got bigger than her big a** mouth and body. Now, she feels she can say anything, because she's a comedian. Funny no one laughs but Rosie, and does she really think the public thinks her trying to get attention a** comments really affects ANYTHING!!! ROSIE you're a nobody going nowhere fast!!!
