She's Deface Of Rosie Revenge (Rosie gets back at Hasselbeck)
New York Post ^ | May 25, 2007 | Richard Johnson

Posted on 05/25/2007 12:06:39 AM PDT by tlb

Yesterday, Rosie's chief writer, Janette Barber, was allegedly escorted from the building after she was caught drawing moustaches on photographs of Hasselbeck that hang in the "View" studios.

The Post's Adam Buckman reports ABC confirmed in a statement only that "photographs at 'The View's' offices were defaced. Rosie O'Donnell was not in the building. ABC Legal and Human Resources are investigating the matter." Barber is an old friend of O'Donnell who worked with her years ago on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show."

There were also rumors O'Donnell was so angry after her argument with Hasselbeck that she trashed her dressing room, although ABC denied the tantrum.

As for O'Donnell, she's been posting comments on her personal Web site, rosie.com, fueling speculation she might not return to "The View" ever again. Her scheduled last day is Wednesday, June 20.

When one fan wrote, "Work isn't worth that battle," Rosie replied, "Agreed." Another wrote, "Please walk away. It's not worth it." Rosie replied, "Well, you know when it's time to go."

To a fan who asked when she would return, O'Donnell answered, "No idea."

Yesterday, O'Donnell posted a video that may have symbolized how she's feeling about "The View."

The tape consisted of ducks swimming in a pond accompanied by an audio track of the John Mayer song "Vultures," whose lyrics include "How will I hold my head to keep from going under?"

Officially, "The View" expects O'Donnell to return to work on Tuesday.

The ducks and vultures seem to represent her fowl mood. As for Elizabeth, I'd bet her home gets toilet papered next.

I saw the video. Hasselbeck took her apart and never put her back together again. :-)

Oh, and Hasselbeck would look far better than O’Donnell even if she had a real mustache. :-)

Beauty may only be skin deep, but with Rosie, ugly goes all the way to the core.

No doubt. But yet, it was interesting, in a car wreck kind of way, to watch O’Donnell call herself a fat ugly lesbian.

Amazing, isn’t it?

This woman insults people constantly with her bombastic statements. She’s already told me I am responsible for knocking down the world trade and my religion is as bad as those murderers of woman and children. That I’m dangerous to America.

Then one very mild woman stands up to her and she’s so upset she walks out of work. She can dish it out pretty nasty but can’t take the smallest bit back.

Everytime I see that video of Elizabeth and Rosie going at it I think what a lucky guy Elizabeth’s husband is to be able to go home to her every night. On the other hand I see Rosie and fully understand why she had to become a carpet muncher.

I was thinking exactly the same thing. Of course, I'm pretty lucky to come home to who I come home to also so there's not too much envy.

And the essence of Hasselbeck's dishing back was just to tell Rosie that she should defend her own insinuations. Sounds reasonable to me....but then I'm not a self described fat lesbian.

While I will give her points for just putting up with the fat rude dyke, Hasselbeck is not up to the job. She is way to pretty and WAY to soft to confront obvious lies. They need a heavier hitter. I would love to see Ann Coulter do a week or weeks long stint sitting at the table.

"watch O’Donnell call herself a fat ugly lesbian."

And thus tacitly admit that she is uncontrollably jealous of Hasselbeck, who might be two cards short of a full deck but who also went out of her way to protect Rosie on H&C last week.

I think they recognize that anyone who was a stronger debator would effectively shut down the other 3 pigs. Hasselbeck is perfect because she restrains herself enough so that the 3 moonbats can still spew their filth with relative impunity.

Respectfully I disagree. Not about Elizabeth's obvious physical attractiveness but that it makes her too soft to put up an effective fight.

You have to remember that she's in NYC where someone with views like hers is immediately demonized and discarded if possible by the MSM. If she were any less polite, or genteel, or civilized then the whole city would be talking about what an evil B!Ch she is and how poor Rosie shouldn't have to put up with her.

The fact that she handles it all so gracefully is what makes it possible for her to continue to fight at all. She has to be like the tide flowing in, not the wave crashing down, or she'll be out of there like last week's news. Just look at the way that imbecile Donald Trump took a cheap shot at her... that's exactly what all of NYC would be like if she always treated Rosie the way that Rosie treats her.

The fact that she stood up this one time and gave as good as she got could be attributed to her pregnancy or whatever (when it could really be that she's just had enough) but if she doesn't go straight back to smiles and sweetness tomorrow then you'll be able to watch the MSM turn on her like dogs.

Her views to them are heresy... a sort of ecclesiastical high treason, and they don't allow them to be viewed in the same light as their own opinions.

Personally I think she's doing great.

And my views are utterly uninfluenced by the fact that she had the best legs on television.

I saw clips of the exchange. Bottom line- Rosie could not defend her remarks and in her mind, transferred the responsibility of defense to Elizabeth.

Therefore, in her narcissism, it must have been “necessary” to hurt Elizabeth the way the Rosie felt hurt.

I think Rosie should be put on a suicide watch.

I am serious. She is lashing out against everything in a childlike manner and she might just do herself in and blame “right wing exteremists” in a last note.

Rosie is an extermely and singularly unhappy woman.

Probably the most uninteresting and less newsworthy item on the networks today is the big attempt to make Rosie Odonnell interesting and newsworthy.

It’s even less newsworthy than the report that Irving Schmuckbucket of East Elbow Arkansas reorganized his sock drawer.

This happens to all of us I’ll bet. My SIL was constantly harassing me with mocking insults about the President, Conservatives, Iraq, ect., and I ignored her just to get along.

But the one day that I talked back, (with facts),she threw her hands up and said, “well, I don’t follow politics like you, I don’t watch c-span, I hate politics”.

End of discussion, lol.

“I think Rosie should be put on a suicide watch.”

- While your remark might be taken as an overstatement, I think there is something to the observation that O’Donnell’s personality has changed noticeably since she first started her day time talk show. Her behavior has become more erratic and unpredictable and her outbursts more frequent, intolerant and extreme. She seems to see conspiracy everywhere which is a sure symptom of someone suffering from a persecution complex, or worse.
I would guess that there are events in her personal life which are putting great pressure on her and she lashes out from fear and insecurity. Unless she takes the pressure off herself and withdraws from public life, I see a stint on a funny farm in her future.

Ann Counlter would be a great, although I don't think she'd get to say much...it would still be a great idea.

What I would like to point out is that The View doesn't have to wonder if Elizabeth will be at work on Tuesday. She's a professional who has no problem meeting her obligations. With Rosie you never know when the next tirade is coming and after which tantrum she just won't come back to her job. I honestly don't know what she has a problem with, she get's to say what she wants, usually without interruption. Elizabeth can't say that.
