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 and many other programs on the air are over the top liberal and entirely tooo much gay stuff. We all know they exist and have rights but give us all a break. We are tired of hearing all about it. To each his ;own I suppose, but it is not right. The parts don't fit. Ok?
The program to begin with was a good idea but it is no longer any thing that I watch. Rosie is domineering and vulgar and has a chip on her sholder and is trying to convince herself that she is living the right way and pushing the agenda onto everyone else. She needs help.
Elizabeth is young and sweet and conservative and has so much potential and is never allowed to be herself or show off her talents in design, or parenting, or moral ways of looking at the world. I like her and I am sorry she is the only conservative person on the panel. I am sick to death with all this politcal correctness, racism and gay stuff and all the liberals do not know what they are talking about either. Believe me I know. Enuf!! Get Rosie her own show or better yet just get her off of this show and go back to the original plan.

The View is a great show. Rosie is the lead, Barbara, who I adore, has much work to do outside of the View. Elisabeth is a bright young women with views. That is the reason for the show. Rosie and Elisabeth are friends and see each other socially. I am a Rosie fan. Show her opening night in "Suessical the Musical" on opening night and again 2 weeks later. I live in Florida. Joy is a joy. The four ladies make up a good team. Sometimes Rosie does get a little pushy with her view but then that is Rosie. She is a wonderful woman who does wonderful things. I love the show and save it every day to watch at my leisure, maybe twice. Why didn't March 21st record? Is it because of the Broadway Shows that were on. I missed that show and am traumitized. Not rich so cannot aford to buy the tape. How can I get a copy? Any kind hearts out there for an old lady who loves "The View".

I tell you what, if you judge public oppion but reading the blogs you would lose faith in humanity all together. The language and anger that are expressed are unbelievable!
Look at your hearts people, what comes out of your mouth is an expression of the heart and there are many people out there that are in need of a heart transplant!

So, Rosie tells Elisabeth, "You have to stop. You can ask a question, but you can't just blather on your opinion." What the heck???

Why don't they just rename the show ROSIE'S VIEW and just letter her "blather on" for an hour?

NOTHING can make me watch that show. It was once a good show, but Rosie Barbara Walters has lost it and has ruined it. I'm not sure it pays to be a ratings whore.

Elisabeth is not a dummy like some of you think. She is not a dumbercrate. She is the other side. Maybe ya'll should listen to her. Really listen, open your ears, pull out those one sided ear plugs and learn about your softer side. Every one of us can learn from another, especially if we do not have the same opinions.

I've been watching the View for Years, it was actually a little boring before Rosie came on. I do agree that she has made the show her own. None of the other hosts has any control, especially Barbara If Elizabeth and Rosie can't agree about political issues, keep them off the show..

The View was about all four ladies views , now it's just Rosies, views and opinions. Barbara take control and stop this stupid arguing befor you start loosing more viewers.

As a long time Rosie fan and supporter I have to admit that I have recently had to rethink my position. She is out of control, the more publicity she gets the more it seems to fuel her fire. She is hurtful to others and so wrapped up in her own thoughts and ideas there is no room for anything else. Poor Kelly, we have Rosie only one hour a day and it has finally gotten to where we have had enough, Kelly continues to deal with it daily. I question our sanity when we hang on the words of an admittedly depressed person, is it not true that they have a slightly different "view", as she said an "illness" that affects the mental stability of a person. She is starting to become an embarrassment to all who considered her a daytime representative of the middle class woman. I use to look forward to The View now I am searching for something else to fill the morning time slot. Love Joy and Elizibeth, not so much Barbara for allowing the show to become a Rosie platform.

In response to #9 by Great Dane............Rosie's sexual preference is not a concern as I see it. The fact that she attempts to force her opinions on people by intimidation on a colossal scale is the real issue. She's a bully, and resorts to verbal assault and battery. When someone begins to get an edge on her, is when she pulls out the lesbian card. As we've seen in recent programing (i.e.: Grey's Ananomy & the Regis show), homosexually has all but become a PROTECTED CLASS in the United States. I do not condone name calling, but homosexually IS NOT a PROTECTED CLASS. It has become routine for individuals in the entertaiment industry to wear their homosexually as a badge on their shoulder, and demand preferential treatment for their homosexual life style.
Rosie has manipulated he way to the top through intimidation, and has to maintain this verbal assault and battery to stay there. I would agree that THE VIEW has become Rosie's show, and to solitify this fact, she will run off all of the other on air participants, repalacing them with someone of her choice. It doesn't take a homosexual rocket scientists to figure that one out.
I don't watch the show, but have followed Elizibeth's career. She is a smart and beautiful young lady who does not need the grieve from Rosie. Elizibeth will do quite well on her own, and I look forward to seeing her on future programing.
As for Rosie, I predict she WILL gain full control of THE VIEW, and drive it inot the ground shortly thereafter. No one will have any interest in THE VIEW after everyone that will challenges her opinions is gone.........looking forward to the day.

Hey, its Hollywood. Maybe, Carmen Electric and Joan Jett are doing the bisexual thing. It seems like the "fad" in Hollyweird these days. Besides, there is nothing like a woman's touch.

Rosie O needs to be shown the door. "If you lie down with dogs.....". Barbara is untrustworthy and Rosie is a bully. Girls, save what self respect is left and leave that show. I don't know how you stand working for her....I mean, them....rosie or babwa

That VIEW show went in the dumper the day loud mouth Rosie came on board. I used to check it out when they had good guests, now it's just who can shout over who.
It matters not who's on any more, i deleted ABC from channel selections.
Does not represent anything I would want to be assoceated with.
Wouldn't watch it even if they had the SECOND COMMING for sweeps.
Hope that show tanks.......

Elizabeth is an idiot! She adds nothing to The View except her idiotic views. Why don't they cancel her contract? They sure don't need her, she wouldn't even be missed. I like it when they ignore her, when she is blabbering on. It's like she's not even there. Rosie is right on about Elizabeth's ignorant comments.
