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.

The View was an okay show in the very beginning with the original cast...now it is an every day all-out shout fest. Between Joy and Rosie, who can get a word in edgewise? Ugh. I quit watching. My head hurt after 2 minutes of Rosie and Joy's ranting.

Whether people like it or not Rosie is the star of the view. The ratings were down until she came on. Elisabeth doesn't have any talent and she's just a reality show has been. If Walters has to choose between the two.. Elisabeth may as well star preparing her resume. Walters knows how the game is played and it's all about money and sponsors. Rosie brings in the money and the sponsors.

The show is run by liberals, and there is only one Republican on the damn show. It should be called The Liberal View. Bill O'Reilly should go on there and mop Rosie's arrogrant face across the floor.

Not a Timberlake fan, but it's pretty sad his "home" state isn't welcoming him.
Probably explains why Samuel L. Jackson doesn't boast and rarely mentions being
from TN. Does Usher even mention being from TN?

Yawn.......................

I HOPE YOU HURT YOUR BACK DOING SO. YOUR PARENTS MUST BE SO PROUD OF YOU, OR, MAYBE IT'S ONLY ABOUT MONEY WITH THEM, TOO.

WHO CARES about the View? I certainly don't. It seems only lonely housewives who are home during the day and can watch it are interested in this daytime talk show soap opera. Do you really call that news????? Don't get me wrong, I think Rosie is interesting and perhaps has something to say, but COME ON.

SICK OF STUPID ELISABETH    

Elisabeth should have been fired from The View" a long time ago. She adds nothing because she is stupid. Barbara Walters should have retired. I don't like Rosie but she does have some interesting viewpoints. The only one who looks good consistently is Joy Behar. Don't they have hairdressers on that show? Rosie and Elisabeth's hair usually looks like they just got out of bed. I seldom watch it anymore since it is boring.
