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.

Regarding "Rosie's Liberal and Conspirachy Theory View" show.....
At least that should be the name of the show.
Rosie has become nothing more than a liberal bully with Joy to back her up everytime. And why is the guest host never a conservative woman? Because that would make it even and ABC doesn't want a balanced show, they want their Bush bashing to continue.

Hey 17!
That was the most loaded piece of crap I have read in a long time, LOL
So are you saying that because Rosie is a liberal with dark hair that makes her smarter than anyone else on the show???
Barbra is an old woman now and shoule be embarrassed to call herself a journalist.
She is nothing but a ratings whore now.

Dear JT,
Don't worry about your home state not recognizing you for your contribution to the music industry. You are a talented musician and a successful entrepreneur (and I hear a really nice person). Your gifts and interests are manifold, and you are still a young man with many roads to travel. When the time is right, I truly believe you will be honored by Tennessee, and the recognition will include so much more than just your music.

#20.....

I don't think the color of her HAIR was the basis of my comment, the BLONDE comment was more about the TYPICAL FEMALE TV persona.....Rosie is ANYTHING BUT THE norm.....which may have somehting to do with her POPULARITY.....people are sick and tired of watching pretty, skinny women- with nothing to "ADD"......women like that need to stick to shows like BAYWATCH.....Not that Elisabeths scrawny little ass is remotely Baywatch worthy.....but, she doesn't belong on the View....Elisabeth needs to EDUCATE herself, before she speaks......

The View: Who cares? I never watch anyways.

Timberflake: Can't stand him.

Nicole: Try less drinking and eat instead. At the rate she's going she could end up diabetic!

Carmen & Joan Jett: Hadn't heard about it.

The guy in rehab: It seems the "in" thing for celebs to do now. Cliche.....

And as for Idol: Ya, Steph was robbed - but when you have Howard Stern and VFTW all ringing in for Mowgli, what do you expect? The kid can't carry a tune in a bucket and his Kinks performance was the stupidest thing I've seen, from his outfit to his voice, to the little girl crying her eyes out in the audience....Idol has fallen. Time to cancel the show.

If Elisabeth would stop sounding stupid with her "I think" multiple times in a sentence, she may be able to get a point across!!!

Elisabeth is a sweet girl but she's a bit sheltered and doen't really know what she's talking about, but I still like her and enjoy The View all that much more because she is there. I think everyone can see that Rosie runs The View and she isn't afraid to use her clout, even on Barbara, who clearly shares Rosie's opinions on most things. Clearly The View has become one of the best hours on TV because they talk about real issues in a real way. The View does a better job with political comentary than CNN or Faux News and it is because all of the women on The View have a view and are more than willing to share it. Thanks to all of them!

The fact is Rosie is making twice as much as Joy and three time as much as Elizabeth.

She was hired to raise ratings and that is what she has done. ABC will fire the rest of them before they will fire Rosie, Joy and Elizabeth should be saying their prayers that Rosie has saved the View from being cancelled.

Where else can Joy and Elizabeth make a million dollars per year for just one hour a day?

I lost it when Rory Kennedy was on and Elizabeth took over the show!!! Someone needs to tape her mouth shut... I did not watch the show to see E, I wanted to see Rory and had to wait for Rosie to step in . Man You can replace E any day and the show would be much better. I can not stand E much longer!!!!!!!!!!!!! She needs to grow up and learn when to speek and when to keep her mouth SHUT. DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!

Nicole Richie has a lot deeper problems than low blood sugar. Why can't her family and friends get her help? Just LOOK at her!!! She is starving herself, and she obviously has a substance abuse problem. She is screaming for help-----someone please step in on her behalf. She has proven she can't/won't. We don't want to watch this anymore!!!
