Rosie O'Donnell thinks Katie Couric failed in her interview with Stephen Collins, attacking the "7th Heaven" star for ruining the lives of the children he molested and then not really taking responsibility.
Rosie blogged about the interview, saying, "I was sure [Katie] was gonna do 2 him what she did 2 Sarah Palin ... hit him with his truth right between the eyes ... expose him for who he was ...'what newspapers do u read Sarah? She saved us all then ... this time she didn't."
But then Rosie unleashed on Collins, saying, "He took the hand of 10 year old girl and used it to jerk himself off." BTW, Collins only fessed up to taking the girls hand and placing it on his penis, but we know the woman claims he ejaculated.
Rosie goes on ... "ummmm -- after u came on the kids hand -- u mean? stephen ... right? u are not equals. she was an innocent child ... a baby girl ... u have a daughter for gods sake ... were u able to resist the urge to touch her? how noble ... congrats."
And she doesn't let up, saying, "in case u wonder what ur man sized penis -- ur abuse of power ur lack of impulse control did to that kid ... i will tell u a bit about me ... sex is not fun ... not now ... not ever ... it is married to a lingering terror ... joy evaporated."
Rosie recounts the impact sexual abuse caused her, "My body became my enemy ... I would not love it ... take care of it ... treat it well ... it betrayed me."
And then she takes a shot at Cosby, saying, "ur casual lack of accountability for her and for me has wondered us once again ... u -- Stephen Collins ... u u r an archetype ... as is Bill Cosby ... pedophile/rapist ... how dare i ... how dare i not."
Chris Brown & Karrueche
They Just Can't Quit Each Other
12/24/2014 7:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran loved, hated, loved, hated ... and apparently the pendulum has
We got video of the feuding exes leaving Playhouse early Wednesday morning. The two of them walk out of the club together, but appear to leave separately.
Karrueche was hosting a holiday party and toy drive at the club and there were flyers with her mug promoting the vent, so it's not like Chris didn't know she was there.
It actually seemed like this was a split for good, after CB went on stage and screamed "F*** Karrueche!"
Will this be the final chapter? Not a chance.
Schizo Sony Reverses Ground Again ...
Will Release the Movie Online
12/24/2014 9:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
9:27 AM PT -- It's a done deal ... "The Interview" will be available online TODAY (Christmas Eve) via YouTube, Google Play, the Microsoft Xbox video game console and a special Web site called SeeTheInterview.com.
It will cost $5.99 to rent and $14.99 to buy and should be available at 1:00 PM ET.
The schizophrenic execs at Sony have come up with yet another change of course on "The Interview" ... this time nearing a deal to release it on YouTube.
The plan, according to CNN, is to have the film available for rental on YouTube the same day it goes into theaters ... Christmas Day. It's not a 100% done deal and Sony already had a deal with iTunes fall apart.
It's latest about face for Sony ... the studio has reversed course multiple times over "The Interview" ... even more than Karrueche changes her mind about Chris Brown.
Our inside sources at Sony say it's bedlam over there and there is no singular voice making the decisions ... which explains the Sybil act.
In addition to the theater flip-flop -- which intiially drew harsh criticism from Prez Obama -- Sony also pulled the flick off social media, per the hacker's demands.
The one consistent thing at the studio ... the employees have really gotten screwed.
Sony Pulled My Movie Too
... But I Don't Care!

James Caan has a dog in the Sony hacking scandal fight, but you don't see him complaining ... because he's already been paid!
Lost in all the commotion about "The Interview" is a movie called "The Throwaways" ... which is actually about cyber hacking. Caan is one of the film's stars and it was supposed to premiere this month on Crackle (which is owned by Sony) ... but the company pushed it back because of the scandal.
But when our photog asked him about the film Tuesday night outside of Madeo, Caan said once he cashes the check ... it's out of sight, out of mind.
When you've been around as long as he has, that's probably the best approach.

Hayden Panettiere can't escape the laws of physics -- birthing Wladimir Klitschko's baby did some permanent damage to her bod.
Hayden copped to the ordeal of bringing Kaya Evdokia into this world with People ... saying, "I'm limping around. I'm still trying to figure out what [pregnancy] has done to my body, how it's changed it."
As for recovery ... she added, "I know some things will never be the same again."
Sounds about right -- Kaya was 7 lbs., 14 oz. and damn near 2 feet tall. Hayden's only 5 feet tall.
Like we said ... physics.

Ciara is finally so done with her on/off BF and baby daddy Future ... she's removing all signs of his existence ... including the tattoo on her hand.
Recent photos show Ciara's having the letter N (his first name is Nayvadius) lasered away. According to our sources ... Future isn't upset about it, and understands it's part of moving on.
Besides, we're told Future's already bolted out of Ciara's home in L.A. ... and has himself a huge new pad in Atlanta, with a new Bentley to go with it.
Worth noting -- Future has a similar 'C' tattoo, and so far anyway ... he's keeping it.
The couple split in August when she accused him of cheating. They tried again in September, but ... no dice.

LAPD Launches Investigation
Over Parody Song
12/23/2014 2:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The LAPD is conducting an investigation to determine if cops currently on the force attended a dinner at the Glendale Elks Lodge which featured a horrible parody of "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown," making fun of Michael Brown's death.
TMZ broke the story ... retired LAPD Officer Joe Myers threw a charity golf tournament a week ago Monday, and then threw a dinner afterward at the Elks Lodge. As 50-60 people watched, Gary Fishell -- P.I. and former federal law enforcement officer -- sang the parody, with lyrics that included, "Two men took to fightin' And Michael punched in through the door, And Michael looked like some old Swiss Cheese, His brain was splattered on the floor."
We're told LAPD's Internal Affairs will conduct an investigation to determine if current LAPD cops were at the event. We're told there were some active police officers at the dinner, but we do not know the specific agencies.
If active officers were at the event, I.A. will determine if they exhibited "conduct unbecoming of a police officer," which could subject them to discipline.
That's a Wrap
... on 18 Year Marriage
12/23/2014 12:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Clint Eastwood is officially a single man ... his divorce from wife Dina is final.
According to docs filed in Monterey County Superior Court, the marriage of Clint and Dina ended Monday. The couple struck a property settlement and custody agreement, but details are thin.
As TMZ previously reported, Clint attempted to block Dina from getting spousal support ... claiming money to which she was entitled was covered by their prenup. It's unclear if the terms of the prenup were honored in the settlement, but typically there's give and take in these divorce agreements.
Dina requested primary physical custody of their daughter, but she's 18 now so the issue is moot.
The couple separated in June 2012 and Dina filed for divorce last December.
