Rosie O’Donnell Defends Ellen DeGeneres… But Still Won’t Go On Her Show
Rosie O’Donnell, former daytime talk show host, knows what it’s like to have all of America’s eyes (well, the eyes of stay-at-home parents, the elderly, kids home sick from school and people who have misplaced their TV remotes) on her. As a former Daytime Queen of Nice, Rosie has come out in support of Ellen DeGeneres, claiming that, after a while, the daytime television gig can get to you––especially if you’re trying to “fake your essence.” Hmmm…and yet nobody has come out with big-meanie accusations against Bonnie Hunt. So, what is the truth?
Kanye West Has Returned To Los Angeles To Be With His Family But Will Return To The Campaign Trail
The dekay of Kim Kardashian‘s marriage kontinues to be her main narrative as sources are talking to People about how Kanye West has returned to Los Angeles to be with his family amid their kontinued marital issues. Well, just because Kanye is back at home doesn’t mean that he’s actually going to take a hint and finally give up his pipe dream (as in someone hit the pipe before telling him he should be POTUS) of becoming President.
Leif Garrett Says He Wasn’t Smoking Crack In The Green Room Of “The Rosie O’Donnell Show”
Yesterday we learned that Rosie O’Donnell revealed to Andy Cohen that both Bill Cosby and Leif Garrett were banned from The Rosie O’Donnell Show. Bill Cosby was banned for obvious reasons (aka he was allegedly a creep to one of Rosie’s producers). The reason Leif wasn’t asked back isn’t surprising for anyone who watched his VH1 Behind the Music. Rosie alleged that Leif got fucked up on drugs in the green room. Leif has responded to Rosie’s allegations, and he swears he wasn’t on anything during his appearance.
Bill Cosby And Leif Garrett Were On A “Do Not Ask Back” List for “The Rosie O’Donnell Show”
Rosie O’Donnell recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live and told Andy Cohen that Leif Garrett was one of about 5 people who earned themselves a spot on the Rosie O’Donnell Show’s “Do Not Ask Back” list. Which is crazy because he’s on my “Wait, He’s Not Dead?!” list (not only is he alive, he’s only 58!).
If you remember who Leif Garrett is, your reading glasses are probably right on your head silly. That’s where I usually find mine. Leif was a 70s teen heartthrob and the mold from which Charlie Sheen was formed. Another name on Rosie’s list was Bill Cosby. And if you can guess why Leif was on the list, you can probably also guess why Bill was on there. Leif was banned for smoking crack in the green room, and Bill was banned for (eye-roll allegedly) terrorizing a woman.
Howard Stern Came To Meghan McCain’s Defense On “The View”
During my five month baby hiatus, I got reacquainted with my good ol’ friend, The View. For five months straight, I watched it every day to pass the time while nap-trapped under my baby on the couch. My infant daughter’s ears lived through the five weeks Joy Behar took over moderating duties from Whoopi and the show temporarily turned into the Joy vs. Meghan McCain Glass Table Death Match. I shouldn’t have admitted that out loud – I’m totally going to get a visit from CPS.
Point is, I came to remember that Meghan’s internal filter is permanently stuck on “be a loud right-leaning mess,” which was probably the sole job qualification The View producers were looking for when they hired her. Even though it may seem like Meghan annoys everyone within earshot, there is one person out there who wants to hear what Meghan has to say, and that’s Howard Stern.
Rosie O’Donnell And Clay Aiken Have Different Recollections Of The Kelly Ripa “Homophobic Hand” Incident
Ramin Seetoodeh, author of the upcoming Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of “The View” is going to land a Lipton Tea sponsorship in 3, 2, 1, because dude is spilling piping hot, lemon-tinged, sweet tea all over. In his upcoming tell-all about ABC’s morning harridan factory, he gets into the time Live with Regis and Kelly’s Kelly Ripa questioned where her guest co-host Clay Aiken’s hand had been when he jokingly put it over her mouth. Afterward, and back over at The View, Rosie O’Donnell labeled Kelly Ripa’s remark as “homophobic” while inadvertently outing Clay. In Us Weekly’s excerpt, Rosie and Clay have some story straightening to do because they both recall what happened before and after somewhat differently.
