Ro to O: No, No, No

9/18/2007 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rosie O'Donnell gave Oprah Winfrey the big fat brush-off when the talk queen invited Ro to be on her show -- and is dissing her in favor of Diane Sawyer.

Page Six reports that Oprah asked Rosie to talk about her new memoir "Celebrity Detox," in which she slams Baba Wawa, Lord Combover Trump and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and talks about her troubled past. But she already promised Diane Sawyer a sit-down, and told the biggest mover of books in the world, 'no thanks.'

Says Rosie's rep, "I'm sure Rosie will do Oprah's show another time."

One night on 600-count cotton, next night on splintery hardwood -- such is the "plight" of O.J. Simpson, who spent his second night at the Clark County Detention Center on Monday.

"It's friggin' cold, first off. The [beds] are horrible," says an ex-inmate to the New York Post. O.J. is confined to a 7x14-foot cell, and is in solitary right now, with only four hours a day outside his cell. He also asked guards for his reading glasses and a Bible.

Meanwhile, his sister and his girlfriend arrived last night to visit him. He's due in court tomorrow morning for a bail hearing.
