Rosie and Barbara's Backstage Battle

Rosie and Barbara's Backstage Battle

Don't think for a second that Rosie is going to calm down about her feud with Donald Trump anytime soon. Rosie totally freaked out yesterday when she returned from a two week vacation. She was pissed Barbara didn't do enough to defend her during this entire Donald fiasco. Page Six reports:

According to spies, O'Donnell recoiled from Walters' touch and yelled, "You kept me in the newspapers this whole time!"

Both "View" producer Bill Geddie and Walters tried to calm O'Donnell. Walters told her, "I did everything I could to squash the story" - prompting Rosie to scream, "You didn't call me for 10 goddamn days, and you didn't tell me what you were going to say on television!"

O'Donnell is fuming because Trump went on Larry King two weeks ago - after she had called Trump a "snake-oil salesman" - and said Walters told him she regretted hiring O'Donnell. Trump also blasted the comic as "a horrible human being and a loser."

During her vacation, Walters issued a carefully worded statement saying, "I'm sorry there is friction between Donald and Rosie. That said, I do not regret for one moment my choice to hire Rosie O'Donnell as the moderator of 'The View.' "

After O'Donnell's outburst at Walters yesterday, Geddie jumped in and told her, "You've crossed the line." O'Donnell retorted, "Cameras are now outside of my house where my wife and kids are." She turned to Walters and said, "You went all around this and never called [Trump] a liar. You never said, 'Donald is lying.' You never called him a liar."

When Walters tried to defend herself, O'Donnell erupted, "Are you looking me in the face and denying you didn't tell him you didn't say this? You're a [bleeping] liar."

Reps are now of course saying this is no big deal and the two have moved on, but we're sure this isn't the last we'll hear of the continued saga. It seems as if everyone should move on from this annoying tiff. I consider Rosie the winner at this point since Trump did this whole thing for a promotional stunt for the latest season of The Apprentice which just bombed in the ratings.

Barbara Walters seems fake to me. When Paris Hilton was on the View she was fauning all over her - it was nauseating!

I love how Rosie NEVER takes any responsibility for her own actions. It's Barbara's fault cameras are outside her home? No, it's ROSIE'S fault. Rosie opened her trap and didn'tdrop it either. I can't decide who's more repugnant, right now, Rosie's inching ahead.

i love rosie! i love watching the view even more now. the whole time she was bashing trump the very first time, i was just nodding my head and agreeing with her from the beginning. i despise people like trump! not that rosie's perfect, no one is, but she's just a very opinionated person. they pay her to give her opinion. i'm sure she has an agreement with the show that she's allowed to give her opinion, or else she probably wouldn't have signed on in the first place!

I don't know, Rosie is over the top a lot, but does anyone even watch her show anyways, donald really needs to chill out too, no one really cares about this stupid thing anyways.

People need to pick their battles. Don't criticize someone who fights every battle regardless of importance. He is suing his planned community for tens of millions of dollars because he is flying what they perceive to be a vulgarly large American flag. He threatened to sue ABC over Rosie's statements which is why Barbara had to state that Donald Trump had never filed for bankruptcy. Maybe she was surprised that Kelly Ripa called in to defend herself as I certainly was, but pick your battles abd criticize with caution. I despise Donald Trump and I didn't ever know that I'd take his side on anything, but Rosie is definitely in the wrong.

I didnt think what she said to Barbara made any sense, and it was stupid. but im still on her side. The apprentice only got 8.6 million viewers. Too bad for poor ol Donald

Maybe Rosie has a crush on Oprah and it's wishful thinking. Rosie did start it. But seriously, Donald just dragged it on and on and on and on. I'm so tired of the whole thing. She did pick on his combover and say he's been bankrupt, but he keeps attacking her physical appearance and calling her names. He's just as childish as she is in this whole stupid thing, and he's talking about it ten times more than she is. And now that Rosie said something to Barbara he's going to do it all over again. Ugh.

ugh, I HATE the Donald. he is prolly the biggest slimeball I've ever seen. Rosie is wicked obnoxious & I certainly don't agree w/ everything she says, but IMO she was just giving her opinion. which is what she is paid to do. Donald is a baby who can't take any kind of critizism... he makes me wanna :SICK:

Oh, I forgot that she called Oprah gay. Hey butchie, didn't your fug butt just come out of the closet like 2 years ago? She makes it seem like she's some revolutionary person when Ellen really is the one who changed things, and Ellen doesn't go around saying people are gay and accusing people of homophobia. Rosie wants to be Super Lesbian and all she is doing is drawing the ire of the gay and straight communities. Also, I don't particularly think about who my talk show hosts sleep with. My hot actors that I fantasize about, definitely, but Oprah's sexuality is irrelevant to me.

mentioning her wife didn't seem like that big of a deal here, it wasn't the point of her rant. i didn't like her ching chong comments and she's been loud-mouthed lately but trump was way worse. boo on both of them here.

Rosie is not really sticking up for herself though.. she started it!! She threw the first stone and now she wants pity because she got one thrown back at her. Rosie is as slick as Trump. Trying to pretend she was something she was not for a buck. Umm kettle calling out a kettle no?
ohsuri ohsuri 10 years
Rosie just thinks she MAKES everything she touches. How dare she suggest that Oprah was gay and last I checked Clay A did not out himself. Rosie is on this gay rant. Who the F cares who she sleeps with? Frankly I can't believe anyone would!! She keeps trying to jam that down our throats. We get it.. YOUR WIFE and you... WHO CARES!!!

ever since i was little all i could remember is how big a schmuck Trump was. He's always whoring himself out to make a dollar. And his show is a joke anymore who cares about him, he's done. I don't love Rosie but I admire her for sticking up for herself in certain situations. Team Rosie for this brawl!

Rosie's comments about Trump are the first time I've agreed with her in years. That said, she should shut up now. BaltimoreGal
