Rosie -- I Wuz Fired by Babwa

10/5/2007 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So, yes, it was on stage at a comedy club, but Rosie O'Donnell made it clear what she thinks happened to her at "The View."

Rush & Molloy report that when she took the stage at Roseanne Barr's set at Comix the other night, Rosie began her bit by saying, "When I was fired by Barbara Walters," which isn't what they politely told the world back in June. Then, they claimed it was a mutual decision.

In the Dept of TMI, Rosie also joked that she and Babwa were so close when she started that Walters recommended she use Astroglide. We'll just stop right there and let that roll around in the public's collective consciousness.

Owen Wilson – Back in the Game


Owen Wilson is back and shaggier (and healthier) than ever, appearing with his castmates at the L.A. premiere of "The Darjeeling Limited."

Wilson took the stage with co-stars Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman to talk about the movie, and director Wes Anderson said of him, "I've never made a movie without him and I hope I never have to." It was Wilson's first professional appearance since his reported suicide attempt in August.

First...good luck to Owen. I wish him well. I hope the media leaves him alone and doesn't assume one public appearance opens the doors to stalk him.

As for Rosie. C'mon folks. She was on stage at a comedy show with Roseanne. She's not seeking publicity. She hasn't given an interview or comment on anything said about her. Its the gossip media that takes writings from HER blog and throws it all over the news.

Seems to me that bawa wawa has a habit of firing people and then lying about it. Hopefully dizzy lizzy is next. She even called Joe Biden "Paul Biden" last week.

Rosie....she is one of those people who voices the truth that people are not wanting to hear...then they bitch at her for actually saying whats what...and blame her being a bitch for exposing the hidden drama of how ruthless tv can be to celebrities. Use 'um and lose 'um....come on women...can't you relate???!!!

Owen should advise Rosie on where to seek proper mental health care for her extreme psychiatric disorder and mental illness.

The context in which Rosie was talking about BW, was about a woman that approached her in the Mall. I wish that people would take things in the correct context, but then it wouldn't be news. Sell your junk, but if you could put one shred of truth in it, it would be great. Shame on you...really.

He's just another Idiot    

All of us knew that Rosie was fired from The View. The excuses that Rosie gave at the time were so lame, they were funny. Wasn't she supposed to go to a Clinic somewhere for her Bi-Polar disease? She is the only "celebrity" I really dislike. She's ignorant, ugly, certainly not witty and humorous, and boring. I worry about her children and her wife.

as for TMZ taking a line from a joke and editing it to say rosie admits being fired....this totally proves to me once and for all that TMZ will LIE for a story!!!!
as for the comments....why do u hate Rosie so much for telling the truth? I know it is hard to take critiscism about our country, government, and media but in order to make ourselves into a better society we need to fave these flaws. lokk what ignotong it has done.

IMO Rosie is the liar and not TMZ. Do not buy her book and even if you borrow it from the library, don't believe most of it.
