  • Hillary Clinton releases ad featuring Donald Trump's degrading comments toward women

    Hillary Clinton this week released an ad showing a series of individual girls looking at themselves in the mirror with voiceovers from clips of Donald Trump making degrading comments toward women. “I’d look her right in that fat, ugly face of hers,” Trump, the GOP presidential nominee, says in the first clip in the 30-second ad. “She’s a slob,” he added. “She ate like a pig,” Trump said, which appeared to be from an interview on CNN. “A person who is flat-chested, it’s very hard to be a 10.” “Does she have a good body? No. Does she have a...

    Rosie O’Donnell is “very frightened and concerned” about her 17-year-old daughter Chelsea after she was found with an alleged heroin dealer she met on Tinder. Chelsea, who suffers from mental illness and had not been taking her medication, was missing for a week before she was found in New Jersey on Tuesday at the home of Steve Sheerer, who was arrested in 2012 for possessing heroin with intent to distribute and child endangerment. A source told Page Six that Chelsea was found at the Barnegat Township, New Jersey, home of Sheerer after meeting him on Tinder, “She is 17 and...

    OTTAWA, August 17, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- A 26-year-old Mennonite missionary was violently stabbed in the back on Friday by a pro-LGBTQ woman who became aggressive after he shared with her his Christian beliefs regarding homosexuality. “The confrontation was about the idea of homosexuality…if that’s OK, if that’s acceptable, and whether God loves somebody who is in that state. And we assured her that he does,” said Eric Brubacher, a member of the Mennonite community who was present during the attack, to CTV. The unnamed victim was rushed to the hospital where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries and then...

    Comedian Rosie O’Donnell on Friday said women’s rights in America are under attack. O’Donnell said politicians are undoing the progress activists have made, according to CBS News. “Bigger than any specific people, there is a war on women that is happening in this country,” O’Donnell told host Jenny Hutt on SiriusXM’s radio program “Just Jenny.” “Women fought for equality in this country, and right now, politically, it’s being taken away from us." O’Donnell was discussing runner Kiran Gandhi’s decision to run the London Marathon this year without a tampon while menstruating. The comic argued Friday that demonstrations like Gandhi’s are...

    Mary Keefe, a 19-year-old Vermont telephone operator whom her neighbor Norman Rockwell immortalized as his model for the heroine of “Rosie the Riveter,” the World War II feminist anthem that empowered women to leave home and pinch-hit in military plants, died on Tuesday at her home in Simsbury, Conn. She was 92. Her death was confirmed by her daughter Mary Ellen Keefe. Mrs. Keefe was a redhead, like the Rosie who appeared on the cover of the Memorial Day issue of The Saturday Evening Post magazine in 1943, but she had never wielded a rivet gun (not until an appearance...

Mary Ellen Keefe, Mary Doyle’s daughter, confirmed that her mother died after a brief illness in Simsbury, Connecticut, on Tuesday. Keefe, who grew up in Arlington, Vermont, which is where she first met Rockwell, posed for the image when she was just 19 years old. At the time of the painting, she was working as a telephone operator. However she became immortalized when the...

    Bill Cosby victim Beverly Johnson found herself in the middle of the war between Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg when she asked Whoopi if she would do a one-on-one interview on The View rather than be questioned by the other co-hosts. Apparently there was no such thing as a holiday cease-fire behind the scenes at the faltering daytime talk show after Rosie learned that Johnson would only appear on the show if Whoopi alone conducted the interview. The ex-supermodel had reached out to Whoopi privately to share her experience with Cosby after seeing the Oscar winner express endless support for...

    They might as well change its name from “The View” to “The Feud.” A shrill, backstage brawl at “The View” Wednesday left co-host Rosie Perez in tears while panelists Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell battled over how to cover the latest allegations against Bill Cosby and the racially charged upheaval in Ferguson, Mo., sources said. O’Donnell believed the show — now overseen by ABC News — needed to delve deeper into both controversial subjects, while Goldberg wanted to steer clear of the topics altogether.

    Rosie O'Donnell has gone ballistic...again. This time it's because producers of The View, backed by Whoopi Goldberg, want to draw in a younger audience and to that end add flash sales to the mix and finally fill the fifth seat - with a much younger host, a show insider tells MailOnline. The View is desperately trying to find younger viewers. Hosted by Whoopi, 58, Rosie, 52, Nicolle Wallace, 42, and Rosie Perez, 50, the show is drawing in a much older AARP-friendly audience. ABC executives are intent on making changes in an effort to attract viewers in the 18-to-34 demographic,...

    The last person who thought Rosie O’Donnell would ever return to “The View” was Rosie O’Donnell. In the spring of 2007, the talk show host opted not to renew her contract with the gabfest created by Barbara Walters, even though her controversial opinions gave the program a ratings boost. Then, shortly before her departure, she got caught in a spectacular fight on live TV with conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck that started over the Iraq War, but quickly turned personal — and went viral. “The day it happened, I was definitely crying,” O’Donnell recalls. “I got my stuff and walked out.”...

To the trio of Des Moines police officers who confronted the barking bear-of-a-dog in the driveway of the Wrights' home two years ago, she was something else entirely.

    The short life of “The Rosie Show” got even shorter Thursday when OWN aired the finale of the anemically rated program a day early. Talk show host Rosie O’Donnell did the equivalent of slipping quietly out the back door when she capped off Thursday’s broadcast not with any parting words, but with a performance by singer Josh Kelley. Kelley’s performance had been taped — and had aired — a few months ago, back when O’Donnell was doing her show in front of an audience in a much larger space at Chicago’s Harpo Studios. The show since had been stripped of...

    Rosie O’Donnell’s TV history is repeating itself — and, as in the past, it’s getting ugly. O’Donnell’s talk show, “The Rosie Show,” is imploding just five months after launching on Oprah Winfrey’s little-watched OWN cable network. Not only is “The Rosie Show” a ratings disaster — it averaged just 150,000 viewers last week — but O’Donnell is selling her $2.5 million mansion in Chicago, where the show tapes, and reportedly wants to move the production to New York. That would leave producer Harpo with empty, expensive, unused studio space it might not want to surrender so easily. [Snip] Adding...

    Before the dust had even settled over the ruins of Texas Stadium Sunday, internet forums and Twitter began to hum with rumors that “4/11 was an inside job”…that the alleged planned demolition was, in fact, a CIA plot.The iconic domed arena, long-time home of the NFL Dallas Cowboys, collapsed after a series of explosions which Irving, Texas, city officials claim were planned in order to clear the site for future construction. However, a careful analysis of YouTube videos reveals that the dome began to buckle a full 3/10ths of a second early, according to experts on Twitter. This means, they...

    On her April 5 satellite radio show, Rosie O'Donnell took her anti-Catholicism to a new level by likening the Catholic Church to the Jonestown cult. As Brian Maloney of The Radio Equalizer put it, "in Rosie's twisted world, there's really no distinction to be made between the Pope and Jim Jones, murderous cult leader responsible for the deaths of more than 900 people in the Guyanese jungle." O'Donnell certainly has a past of Catholic/Christian bashing. On the April 19, 2007 edition of ABC's The View, she expressed her concern that having five Catholic Supreme Court justice somehow violated the separation...

    O'Donnell: Time for Leno to Step Aside THE ASSOCIATED PRESS January 15, 2010 PASADENA, Calif. (AP) -- Rosie O'Donnell said Thursday that it's time for Jay Leno to step aside for Conan O'Brien and ''not try to flatten his tires before he even gets going.'' NBC is seeking to move Leno into his old 11:35 p.m. ''Tonight'' show time slot and push O'Brien past midnight again, after Leno's prime-time show failed. O'Brien is balking at the move after only seven months at ''Tonight,'' and a negotiated exit from NBC seems likely. O'Donnell, talking to reporters while promoting an HBO documentary,...

And she said she’s happier with you,” psychic Sonya Fitzpatrick said of O’Donnell’s dog Misty. “She's so spoiled and she loves to burrow." The former “View”...
