A Major Cat Fight Breaks Out On ‘The View’
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.
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.)
