Elisabeth to Babwa: You've Lost Control!

3/22/2007 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Elizabeth HasselbeckAnother day, more alleged strife at "The View:" Now, Elisabeth Hasselbeck apparently thinks Babwa has completely lost control over the show, and she's steaming mad that Rosie had a whole show devoted to her birthday.

According to Rush & Molloy, Elisabeth is still stewing over yet another on-air verbal smackdown from Rosie two days ago, and her anger only intensified yesterday, when the entire hour was all about Rosie's 45th birthday – the show was wall-to-wall Broadway musical numbers. What's more, says a R&M source, Hasselbeck "also thinks Barbara doesn't have any control over the show anymore."

Additionally, Barbara has repeatedly said on the show that she loves Rosie, and Rosie's opinions are her own." And on yesterday's show, Rosie and Elisabeth talked about making up via e-mail during Tuesday's "American Idol."








K-Fed Ain't Getting What You Think


Britney and K Fed News reports are circulating that Kevin Federline will score $19 million in his divorce with Britney. Hardy har har.

TMZ knows the real deal -- and Kevin isn't getting anywhere near 19. The real story -- put a decimal point between the 1 and the 9 and then reduce it significantly.

As for why K-Fed isn't in a position to bargain -- Britney's disso-queen lawyer, Laura Wasser, drafted an airtight prenup before the marriage. Kevin will end up pocketing around a mil.

The divorce is winding its way to a quick end. Britney and Kevin are getting along, and they have agreed in principle to a custody arrangement. As TMZ first reported, there will be a 50/50 custody split for now, but in the long run , Britney will get primary custody.

Vivica A. Fox A-rrested for DUI


Vivica A Fox gallery: Click to launch photosTMZ has learned Vivica A. Fox has been busted for DUI.

It happened last night on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley at 10:57 PM. We're told Fox passed a marked black and white while going approximately 80 mph. Sources say the officers went after the 2007 Cadillac Escalade she was driving.

The officers administered a field sobriety test -- which Fox was unable to perform. The former "Dancing With the Stars" contestant was then placed under arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Fox was taken to Van Nuys jail where she submitted to two breathalyzer tests. CHP spokesman Leland Tang told TMZ, "It was definitely over the .08 legal limit."

Fox was cited and released on her own recognizance and ordered to appear in court.


Arizona Jail Goes Sing Sing Over "Idol"


Inmate IdleNot only are they behind bars, they're ready to sing in one! What a con test!

Maricopa County Sheriffs have developed their own version of "American Idol," called "Inmate Idle," in which 15 jailbirds battle for lockdown supremacy, not with homemade shivs, but with their singing! According to reps from the Sheriff's Office, the competition is an attempt to boost morale and give inmates a positive way to spend their jail time.

The vote for the six finalists will be held tonight, with Alice Cooper set to judge tomorrow night's live show. It's rumored that basketball legend Charles Barkley is interested in sitting at the judge's table as well.

The Sheriff who greenlit the event, Joe Arpaio, is notorious for his "unique" treatment of prisoners -- his inmates wear pink jumpsuits and live in tents in the middle of the Arizona desert. No need to say that anyone's singing could get them arrested.

Party Favors: Carmen Not Set with Joan Jett ... Jesse Metcalfe Checks into Rehab ... Sanjaya Survives!


Carmen Electra and rocker Joan Jett are not a romantic item, despite the fact that the two have been spending a lot of time together since Electra split from Dave Navarro. "They are just friends," a source tells Us. ... "Desperate Housewives" boy-morsel Jesse Metcalfe has checked into rehab at an "undisclosed" location, says Page Six. TMZ has learned that over the last week and a half, Metcalfe was on a complete binge, going wild over the weekend in particular and launching on helpless bar staff. ... Despite making a classic Kinks song sound like the low moans of a golden retriever being stepped on, Sanjaya Malakar survived the "American Idol" cut, sacrificing Stephanie Edwards in the process.

Baba WaWa needs to see the writing on the wall that "The View" is no longer her program. At 76 years old, it's time Baba hits the trail and rides off into the sunset.
Unfortunately for Baba, she looks like a worn out bitch after Rosie, the alfa-female has hijacked the pride.

The "reps" at the View can put all the spins on it that they want. The show is going in the shiter just like The Donald predicted it would. Who the hell is Elisabeth to have any say. She is the ABSOLUTELY DUMBEST woman on television. She gives "female" a bad name. You think she would have learned by now to keep her yap shut . She is clueless regarding war and policies. I hope her next child is a son and he's drafted off to war. Let's see then if she still sits there on her high horse and says War is justified. Maybe after her son loses a limb or his life, she'll get some brains.
LEST WE FORGET WHERE WE CAME FROM ELISABETH. YOU ARE A SURVIVOR CAST AWAY.

Elisabeth, you are B-O-R-I-N-G! No one is tuning in to hear your words of wisdom- mostly because you don't have any.....Rosie had her own show for years, the ratings are thru the roof.....why shouldn't she get an hour for her 45th birthday? Stop being such a WHINEY little Republican......Rosie can be obnoxious, and opinionated....I "get" that......but, if people would just get past the fact that she's a lesbian etc, and listen to what she has to say about a lot of different things, they'd realize she's actually quite smart, and she's knowledgable about the topics, she knows the details....not like Elisabeth that spews out a random comment and has NOTHING to back up her opinion......

Nicole's not getting enough sugar? Well maybe they should put sugar in alcohol, and marijuanna.....Lord knows her sugar levels would increase- ESPECIALLY while she's driving.....>is this a poor attempt at highlighting her poor health to get her out of a jail visit?

Awe, I was really hoping Carmen and Joan were getting it on.....that would've been a MUCH BETTER reality series to watch......lol

WTF    

About the whole Elisabeth, Rosie deal
I think Elisabeth is just too nice to Rosie and forgives her because she understands that she is angry at the world. And she will not admit her true feelings for the sake of the View and Babwa.
Rosie has ruined that show with her loud mouth.

1. Barbara has long since lost control. We all know that Rosie runs the show.
2. Nicole needs to eat a sandwich. Why won't someone feed her? She needs rehab as well.
3. Justin probably won't lose any sleep over this.
4. I wish Carmen and Dave had stayed together. Jesse in rehab too, do celebs get discounts for recommending a facility. Do they give group rates?
And finally, Stephanie was robbed. The pre-teen girls have gone ga-ga for Sanjaya. How else could you explain his surviving yet another week.

Let's call a spade a spade, Elizabeth is intentionally outgunned when it comes to her cohorts on The View. It's unfortunate, the program doesn't place a stronger conservative voice and personality. It would make the program more interesting and intellectually challege the rest of the jackels who see Liz as a lamb to the slaughter.

Yeah you stupid moonbat. Elisabeth has a right to her opinions just like anyone else. Maybe the show should be retitled 'The Liberal View' instead you f**kstick.

EILIZABETH STINKS, SHE IS A STUPID CLUELESS LITTLE GIRL, TRYING TO PLAY IN A BIG GIRLS WORLD. SITTING THERE WITH HERE HAND ON HER CHIN LIKE SHE HAS SOMETHING INTELLEGENT TO SAY. I THINK THAT SOMETIMES ROSIE IS A LITTLE BRASH, BUT ROSIE HAS EARNED IT, BARBARA HAS EARNED IT. JOY HAS EARNED IT. BARBARA MIGHT BE OLD BUT SHE HAS MORE CLASS IN A STRAND OF HAIR THAN ELEZABETH WILL EVER HAVE, MS WALTER HAS INTERVIED THE MOST HIGHEST PROFILE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD, AND SHE KNOWS HER STUFF! I OWULD LOVE TO SEE ELIZABETH KIKKED OFF THE SHOW. MAYBE SHE COULD GO WORK FOR STAR JONES, SINCE THEY ARE SUCH GOD BUDDIES. THATS ANOTHER ONE "STAR JONES", SHE LOOKED BETTER WHEN SHE WAS HEAVY. NOW SHE LOOKS LIKE A CHEAP 0.99 CENT FAKE BARBIE DOLL. SHE IS UGLY! GO PLAY WITH YOUR LITTLE GIRL ELIZABETH, BECAUSE THATS THTE MENTALITY THAT YOU HAVE. YOU MAKE ME SICK
