"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."

Whatever    

The losers who run AI don't want thier clips on the view because Rosie really hit a nerve! I remember the first season of the show and a heavy girl tried out and made it to Hollywood. After her second audition Simon asked her why she would have trouble in the competion and she answered "because I am a big girl". Paula and Randy agreed and she was cut. When the show first started it was all about looks and size. Then they caught flack about it and have toned it down. But they still maintain the same attitude with the Antonella/Frenchie controversy. Truth sure hurts doesn't it Simon Fuller!

#42...Thoughtful????? was it thoughtful to call Donald Trump a pimp? Was it thoughtful to say to Elizabeth her comments were ignorant because she is young?...or to falsely assume that Kelly Ripa was homophobic??? Pleezzzzzzz!!! Here's some thoughtfulness....Rosie is a hypocrite, judgemental, no class bully. Barbara has stooped to the Jerry Springer level for ratings.....and excuse me, but Rosie DOES NOT speak for all of us. As far as I'm concerned, she can keep her comments to herself...We all can speak for ourselves...we don't need Rosie's help!

Rosie is a fat talentless stupid dumb bitch and I can not stand her. I do not understand why the view chose her. I used to watch the view but I refuse to watch it as long as that big mouthed stupid bitch is on there. Get her off TV she is a complete waste of space. Even the gays hate her big mouth.

Has Rosie lost her mind? All she does is bitch about absolutely everything and everyone. Maybe it's menopause. or she's a psycho.

When Rosie's show first came on, I liked her a lot. She seemed kind and friendly and genuinely a caring person. What happened? These days all that spews from her mouth is hateful garbage! I don't care what her sexual identity is...that has nothing to do with it...she needs to take a lesson from Ellen....she is such a charming, sweet person, who WOULD CARE what her sexual orientation is. Rosie is just mean-spirited and over-opinionated...and no one cares! Personally, I think you shouldn't even give her a topic on here every day....stick that apple in the pig's mouth by not giving her any attention!!

To quote #82. 82. As a gay black man - all I can say Rosie is 100%
right. And so is Elton John. Amerika is racist and homophobic to the
core. Why do you think there has never been and never will be an
African American or gay finalist on Amerikan Idol? It's the same
reason black and gay artists are denied access to the radio in this
fascist country of ours - that's why. Ever look at the music charts?
It's all music by STRAIGHT WHITE MEN!Bottom line - Amerika hates us
and will never ever give us a chance to succeed. No wonder the
terrorists hate us. We are the single most intolerant country in the
history of the world.KEEP ON TELLING THE TRUTH ROSIE! I LOVE
YOU!Posted at 3:22PM on Mar 7th 2007 by Kevin=======Are you feeble?
Did you ever hear of Ruben Studdard or Fantasia Barrino? Both Black
and winners of American Idol. HOW IS THIS RACIST AGAIN? And as far
as gay ... see Clay Aiken. And don't forget the first runner up
Justin Guarini. I'm not sure of his ethnicity ... maybe white and
latino .. but he's not the look of a typical white boy. So please
research before you open your trap. Not everything is BLACK AND GAY.
And for your info I live in Urban America and am Multi cultural and
have family and friends that are gay. So save your hissy fit sister. And BTW it's AMERICAN IDOL and America votes off people not the producers or judges moron and also Randy if you haven't noticed is Black and Paula is I think Middle Eastern and White or something unique. Get over YOUR racism of Hetero-Caucasians. And BTW Rosie is the first to say she's GOING THROUGH THE CHANGE.

96. BY THE WAY THE RATINGS HAVE DOUBLED SINCE RO CAME ABOARD... GO FIGURE

HER OWN SHOW WAS #1 WHEN SHE LEFT......

NEGATIVE PEOPLE ARE YOU ALL SKINNY SWEET BARBIES SINCE YOU SEEM TO BE SUCH A LOUD MOUTHS VOICING YOUR NONSENSE ON HERE ......

IM GLAD THERE IS SOMEONE WHO IS NOT AFRAID TO VOICE CONCERNS FOR EQUAL RIGHTS....... YOU ALL BITCH AND MOAN HERE BUT WHAT OTHER STANCE DO YOU TAKE????


I'm not a Barbie and I think Rosie is a MORON. She doesn't speak for all the NON-BARBIES. Ok I might not be as ROtund as she is but I have friends and family members that are. They are offended by her positions and that she's making overweight people look unhappy, mental, dysfunctional, & vengeful for things that are NO OF HER FN BUSINESS. Why don't she focus on her mental health and dissatisfaction of whatever it is that crawled up her enlarged butt and burrowed itself deep in her intestines so much that it blocked her arse and now she's spilling it out of her mouth CONTINUOUSLY. Please someone give her an IMODIUM AD but this time it's for Anti Dope. She just won't shut the F up. God, why don't she go after the people making kids smoke pot at 2 and 5 in texas or husbands chopping up their wifes or the women that are going to bed with 15 year old boys or killing rival women for a man's affection. I'll tell you why .... she can't have a valid stand other than gossip and opinion. Opinion is one thing ... a Stance on injustice is another. Everyone has an opinion and Rosie is talking out of hers.

Go AI. I would not give that bitch the time of day. I have zero respect for Barbara Walters also. She reminds me of a beaten down pup that has lost everything. If Rosie is as smart as she wants everyone to think she is why isn't she in politics or something where she can make a decision instead of trying to be funny which she is not!

Dr. Phil tell's the truth, Rosie tries to push her Views on everyone by being a bully. Don't know what she has been saying on the show as I quit watching when Rosie is there, that's the great thing about a channel changer. Love this site and get all my Views from here on the Celebs. . If I wanted to watch a show about political views I would tune in to CNN.
