Reese Witherspoon and George Clooney? I’m sure this is not true, but I’ll dutifully pass along the rumor. [Holy Candy]

An Open Letter to Rosie O’Donnell and Donald Trump

January 11, 2007

Hi Rosie and Donald,

I just wanted to write to thank you for the feud you’ve been having this month. Each morning, I wake up, still a little groggy from the codeine and tequila, punch off my alarm clock, and go to brush my teeth. I stare at my reflection and wonder what there really is to be awake for. My hum-drum job? My boring friends? Dolphins? It seems a bleak existence.

Then, it hits me: maybe there’s a new development in the Rosie/Donald feud!

Did Rosie say something inflammatory on The View?? Did Donald pen a scathing rebuttal? Anything’s possible with you two!!

I run to my computer.

Oh, joy!

Rosie, without fail, you’ve said something ever so witty and perceptive about Donald on The View. And, Donald, you’ve always authored a brilliantly innovative note in response. Each day it is eye-opening. Each day it feels new.

I smile to myself. This is all fascinating.

I care so much.

So thank you, both of you, for bringing a daily dose of Rosie/Donald feuding happiness into my life. Please keep it coming. The American public is counting on you.

Yours always,
The Beet

Rosie and Donald (and Barbara) Are Still At It

January 9, 2007

I cannot believe this feud is still going strong. Jesus. Let’s bring in a clique of seventh-grade girls to teach these people conflict resolution skills. It can only help. This spat is completely ridiculous and humiliating to all involved parties at this point. Sigh. Let’s backtrack, all the way to this morning.

Both the New York Post and the Daily News ran items today about a spat that occurred backstage at The View yesterday, when both Rosie and Barbara Walters returned from vacation. When Barbara tried to hug Rosie, O’Donnell reportedly screamed at her, “You kept me in the newspapers this whole time!” Said Rosie, “You went all around this and never called [Trump] a liar. You never said, ‘Donald is lying.’ You never called him a liar.” This is, of course, in regards to the on-going feud between Rosie and Donald, in which Donald stated on national television that Barbara had personally told him that putting Rosie on The View was a huge mistake. Walters tried to defend herself, but Rosie wouldn’t let her get a word in. A rep for Rosie and Barbara didn’t even have the strength to straight-up deny that a fight occurred. Her best efforts: “Whatever happened in the hair and makeup room was hardly a squabble. It’s business as usual, everyone has moved on.”

When The View began taping that morning, Walters quickly stated on air, “Let me say definitively, everything that he [Trump] said I said about her [Rosie] is untrue.”

Trump, whose latest season of The Apprentice debuted Sunday to dismal ratings, isn’t going to let go of this so easily. That would require some level of maturity, a concept foreign to Mr. Trump since this feud began. After reading the Post article, Trump penned a vicious letter to Rosie, in which he states:

An article in today’s New York Post indicates that you blew up at BARBARA WALTERS for being a ‘liar.’ Actually, I don’t blame you, but in fact she lied to both of us! After your maniacal and foolish rant against me two weeks ago, Barbara called me from her vacation (I did not call her) in order to apologize for your behavior. She had heard that I was going to retaliate against you and tried to talk me out of it. She very much wanted me to go on the show as soon as she got back so that she could ‘patch things up’ (I said no). To be exact, she said that ‘working with her is like living in hell’ and, more pointedly, ‘Donald, never get into the mud with pigs’ and, ‘don’t worry, she won’t be here for long.’ Barbara knows exactly what she told me over the phone and she has to live with it. Perhaps that’s why her initial statement was so mild!

In another incident, when I saw her eating at Le Cirque about two months ago and asked how ‘Rosie was doing,’ she sarcastically rolled her eyes and said ‘Donald, do you have to ruin my meal.’

In any event, you have a good reason to be angry. Please give my warmest regards to Kelly!

These people make Paris and Nicole look mature. Grow up, guys!

It’s Gonna Take More Than Fat Rosie to Save The Apprentice

January 8, 2007

Last night, for the first time in my life, I forgot that a new season of The Apprentice was starting. In fact, I’d never really made a mental note of it to begin with. It even seemed to have slipped my TiVo’s mind. Apparently the rest of the country had the same brain fart, as Trumpie’s lastest brainchild debuted to its lowest ratings ever. It placed third in its time slot, losing out to Desperate Housewives and Without a Trace. Fox aired Family Guy reruns against it (boooo…come on, Fox!!!), but had they run new eps, Trumpie probably would have come in last among the big guys. Despite all the hulabaloo Trump’s caused with the Tara Conner rehab nonsense and the Rosie feud, Americans just don’t care about this show anymore.

The Apprentice is pretty over, in my mind. You can set in in L.A., you can set it in the jungle, you can sign up Ivanka Trump or Keira Knightley or Jenna Fucking Jameson, for all I care, it’s the same predictable bunch of blow-hards trying to figure out how to use a Wharton MBA to hawk ice cream on the corner and sucking Donald’s gilded cock every chance they get. (“This is Trump Penis. It is the finest penis in the whole country, and probably even the world.”)

Throw in the towel, Trump. It’s done.

Trump Kids Defend Dad in Feud with Rosie

January 4, 2007

Okay, so, there’s a whole story about this, but I think the picture really says it all.

When Moguls Attack

December 29, 2006

I am at least morbidly fascinated with the whole Trump-Rosie thing, if only because this level of celeb animosity is almost never seen in the public eye. Trump struck again Thursday on a phone interview with AP. The highlights?

“Her show failed, her magazine failed. Barbara Walters gave her new life, but she’ll fail at that also because she’s inherently a stone-cold loser.”

And, with regards to the feud:

“It will never end on my behalf because I’ve exposed Rosie for what she is: a very dumb human being,” Trump told the AP. “She’s got no intelligence, but I’ve known that for a long time. Unfortunately, Rosie’s pulled the wool over the public.”

A very dumb human being? Well then. I would say Trump is a little off on this, it’s hard to call Rosie dumb compared to the average person. But really, they are both weird cats for not just going along their merry wealthy way.

Ideally this will escalate to flaming bags of poop left on doorsteps in the New Year.

The Rosie Rant That Started it All

December 21, 2006

Check out Rosie’s (admittedly funny) rant against Donald Trump that prompted him to bitch-slap her on national television. And then, check out Rosie’s response to him today.

Donald Trump Not the Biggest Rosie Fan Right Now

December 21, 2006

Oh sweet Jesus. This is seriously a full two minutes of Donald Trump going balls-to-the-wall bitchy on Rosie O’Donnell. Apparently he plans to sue her. The first sentence uttered in this interview is “Well, Rosie O’Donnell’s disgusting.” And it just gets better from there. A must-see.

Picking up the Pieces

November 16, 2006

Oh hells no! Britney removes K-Fed from her top 12 on MySpace. That’s what you get for writing mean things about her on shower walls, Kevin. [Faded Youth]

Kate Moss and Pete Doherty are turned away from the London world premiere of Casino Royale, after someone very wise determined that perhaps Queen Elizabeth should not share a red carpet with a world-renowned cokehead. [Agent Bedhead]

Madonna confirms that she plans to adopt a baby girl from Malawi, in order to “redress the balance” in her family. Madonna says things like “redress” because she’s British. Oh wait. [Dirty Laundry]

Donald Trump is going to be a grandpa. Sadly, it’s not because Lance Armstrong knocked up Ivanka. [The Bosh]

Madame Tussaud’s unveils the new Ashlee Simpson wax likeness. What’s that? Oh, I’m told that’s actually Ashlee Simpson. [Celebrity Smack]

Okay, so, in college, some friends and I determined that Sexual Misadventures with Kimmy Gibbler would be, hands-down, the best band name ever. My reasons for mentioning this now are twofold. First, it’s still true, and someone should get on that. Second, Bob Saget actually makes reference to sex with Kimmy Gibbler in this clip of his stand-up, where he sings “Danny Tanner Is Not Gay” to the tune of the Backstreet Boys’ “I Want it That Way.” [BWE]

Are you ready to masturbate to sneakers? Reebok sure hopes so. They’ve hired Scarlett to co-create a line of footwear and apparel and star in the ad campaign. [IDLYITW]

Finally! It’s time for the Reese Witherspoon love interest rumors! Up first: Jake Gyllenhaal. [Hollywood Grind]
