Somewhere, Star Jones is laughing her now emaciated ass off. Yesterday morning, Barbara Walters and Rosie O’Donnell had a little yelling match because Rosie is ticked off with the way Walters handled the Rosie vs. Donald situation (this is part where I would summarize said feud except that, seriously, if you don’t know it by know, you will never, never, never know it, whoah, oh, oh). According to Page Six:
The fight started around 8:30 a.m. when Walters, back from a two-week vacation, walked into the hair and makeup room at ABC studios and tried to hug O’Donnell, whom she hired onto the popular show. 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!”
More juicy details after the jump.

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.”
In about a week, I predict that I will be writing a blog post about Rosie walking into a bar and indiscriminately punching people, windmill-style, for no good reason other than the fact that she’s looking for a fight.
