Rita Cosby -- Macho, Macho Woman

4/16/2007 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MSNBC star Rita Cosby hit the club scene in NYC -- and got her Y-M-C-A on.

The talk host joined original "Village People" star Randy Jones for a impromptu duet at NYC hotspot The Plumm, celebrating her recent departure from the cable network. The party was thrown by TimesSquareGossip's James Edstrom.

Sources inside tell TMZ that Cosby also sang a hilarious rendition of the theme song to the "Mary Tyler Moore Show." Sean William Scott from "American Pie" was seen applauding Rita's singing style.

Rita joins an elite crowd of celebs winging it at The Plumm, including Stevie Wonder, Guns n' Roses, Norah Jones, and Lindsay Lohan.

Where did Rita Cosby get too? It is the last day of June 2007, and I have not been able to find any information regarding Rita.

Rita has some massively beefy mitts and a voice that rivals only Barry White. Has anyone ever checked "her" for an Adam's apple (or any other spare "parts")? Lady is a straight up dude!!

She is the most biased reporter. Hopefully HKS is bringing a lawsuit against her and MSNBC. She probably got hired to be Larry Birkhead or Vergie Arthurs PR representative! So glad to see her go.

I can't stand that woman's raspy voice. Hurts my lungs to listen to her so I don't.
