"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."

Rosie, you're a fat, disgusting, no-talent, hateful loser. Your worthless opinion is clouded with self-loathing and arrogance. Face it, you're a beast and America hates you. I suggest you stop pretending to be something other than the good-for-nothing, overpaid slob you actually are, walk down to the corner Mickey D's and stuff your gullet with greasy fries, a double-thick shake, and a dozen burgers. At least that way we won't have to listen your your inane blathering!

I wonder how many of American Idol's employees are coming to post negative posts about Rosie. Some of them are so well educated I see!
First of all you have to remember that "The View" is called "The View" for a reason............to give their views about current events in the world.
Rosie isn't the only person that is wondering why this girl named Antonella isn't booted off as well. No matter how those photos showed up online ........posed or unposed, attended for the internet or for privacy? Perhaps this will teach the young girls out there that it isn't "normal" to pose nude as a teenager!

I love Elizabeth. She is the only one who will stand up to Rosie. So they have different viewpoints......good for them. Just because Rosie is louder doesn't make her right.

Rosie is just doing her job. The show is called "The View" because it is a group of people from varying backgrounds boucing around -- gues what -- THEIR VIEWS!!.

I don't always agree with Rosie (didn't on the Kelly Ripa thing), but sometimes I do. It is just a way to get people talking about issues and coming to their OWN VIEWS!!!

I love it. All the controversy. Keep it comin' Rosie!

You people need to shut up!!!

Rosie is no more outspoken than any other of the overweight / former comedian / Flintstones movie co-star / lesbians out there.

Rosie is a loud mouth with a platform. She will continue to alienate viewers and sponsors until The View does something about her. But she will always have her gal pals.

Rosie's view, her perception and opinion of AI is what it is and she is entitled to it. AI has gotten too big for its britches and the people behind it think they can control and bully everyone. Please. Everyone makes fun of AI. What do they care what Rosie says. It's not hurting their ratings.

And we all know that Simon picks on people with weight issues on that show. He's made several nasty comments to people who are overweight and he's made lecherous old man comments to young girls with shapely bodies. Not difficult to figure out who he favors.

Iam not much of and Idol fan, but i do know Rosie is a pig and has a mouth like one. Having Rosie influenece any children watch or anyone watch for that matter is the worst possible posion leaked to the american people.

She makes fun of Paula saying her job is worthless, well Rosie's job is the meaning of wothless- the View is basically the same thing as Idol and the women are the Judges the and all of the world becomes the contests to which the dumb A** view girls judge and pick on!! great respectable job!! please ROSIE is such a slob- what does she stand for that means anything- She should try helping the world and stop pulling it apart for her gossip show and thats all the View is a little girls gossip show!! what a same to have to say your part of the View- without that show ROSIE has nothing, she has no talent, no looks, no nothing- once the view is over she is over!!

When Frenchie was booted off the show so many people came out to say how unfair it was, and now that the other girl is not booted off the show(exactley what they wanted to happen with frenchie) people are coming out and saying that she should be booted. I guess the saying is true, that some people just can NEVER be satisfied!!!!

How come does this b***h keep getting headlines? If not one thing with Rosie it's another. She's a train wreck and needs to get kicked off the show. C'mon Barbara, have some balls and get rid of that selfish pig. She makes everyone mad by her outlandish antics that it's just incomprehensible that anyone likes her anymore. As for no footage from 'Idol,' good for them. Hey I would hate to give someone footage of my show and to hear it get slammed. Serves her right. That's what you get Rosie. Being a loudmouth lesbo is one thing. Who really cares? But, trashing 'Idol' and its judges is just absurd. It is what it is, if you don't like it then just please do us all a favor and just shutup. Nobody cares about your opinion anymore. Rosie is getting too much attention and she needs to hang out with a group of homophobes and eat a bucket of chicken. Maybe it'll do her some good.

I LOVE Rosie!! She is the one that stirs up controversy and keeps things fresh. The View would be off the air if it weren't for her. Barbara Walters made a great choice in choosing Rosie. The View would be soooo boring without her!! GO ROSIE! As for the American Idol clips, it's AI's loss! It's just more exposure that they are losing. This group of Idol's are sooooo boring and can't sing. Let alone the one's who should've been voted off by now are still on there.

The View should be renamed "Rosies View...take it or leave it" I used to enjoy the view and Rosie, but she has taken over and created a mockery of herself and the program. She seems to think it is HER show and HER platform. No regard to anyone elses viewpoint, case in point her barrage on Elizabeth, poor Elizabeth for actually having an opinion that differed from Fat mouth Rosie. She is a know-it-all and no one likes a know-it-all!
