A Major Cat Fight Breaks Out On ‘The View’

May 23, 2007

THE ROSIE AND ELISABETH FEUD GOT UGLY THIS MORNING

Check out this video of Wednesday’s verbal sparring match between Rosie O’Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.  Rosie has been pissed since Monday when Elisabeth refused to come out and say she whether or not she actually believes that Rosie thinks the U.S. troops in Iraq are terrorists.  What started out as a Bush bashing segment (initiated by Joy Behar reading a list of the president’s mistakes) eventually turned into a shouting match between the co-hosts.

Enjoy…

The producers made a mistake by letting the argument go on for that long without going to a commercial.  This will either spill over to tomorrow’s show or be forgotten like most of the other arguments they have had since Rosie joined the program last September.  One thing is for sure, cable news knuckle-heads like Joey Scarborough and Bill O’Reilly are going to have a field day with this exchange.

Even better than the argument was the way Alicia Silverstone dissed Elisabeth when she came out after the commercial. Check the obvious ‘blow-off’ by the former star of Aerosmith’s music videos:

Ouch!  Talk about awkward.  That part of the show must slipped by me while my head was still reeling form the cat-fight.  I can’t imagine any event over the next two weeks that Rosie has left on the show that will eclipse the coverage this whole mess has received.  But you never know…

(Update: Rosie is taking Thursday off in order to celebrate her wife’s birthday.)

    Alicia Silverstone was very immature and rude

    I can’t believe anyone would think Alicia was rude… she was being incredibly smart in not engaging with this airhead right-wing religious-nut Bush apologist. Sometimes not engaging is the best one can do. If she’s a Christian, why is she in favor of killing innocent civilians in the name of war profiteering? Rosie should have been supported by ABC – I’m calling for a complete boycott of ABC and it’s advertisers until either an apology, or teh firing of this bimbo.

    “Even better than the argument was the way Alicia Silverstone dissed Elisabeth when she came out after the commercial”

    So why was she there? What has she done in the last two years. I remember she had a canceled TV series a couple years ago.

    “I can’t believe anyone would think Alicia was rude… she was being incredibly smart in not engaging with this airhead right-wing religious-nut Bush apologist. Sometimes not engaging is the best one can do”

    There you have it, the explanation for the death of civility in this nation. Mikel, while it might seem obvious to you that anyone who disagrees with you must be an unenlightened knuckle dragger, you could stand to learn that disagreeing with your political view points doesn’t make someone immoral, evil, or stupid. I pity your world view Mikel. There are very few political differences that should cause us to be rude or uncivil toward others. With the possible exceptions of Rush Limbaugh and Al Franken. :-)
