Rosie Learns Photoshop

2rosie.jpg Rosie O’Donnell, inanely trying to “expose” Hollywood’s “secret” penchant for airbrushing, has taken the Photoshop eraser to her own bod on her blog.

Per TMZ:

Katie Couric’s not the only high-profile female TV personality with airbrush issues — Rosie O’Donnell says she’s recently had the retouch treatment as well. In a new ABC promo photo for the new season of The View, Rosie appears with her co-hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Behar, and Barbara Walters, and though she seems to be in relatively normal proportion to the other “View”-ers, the gab queen says she’s been slimmed by the hand of Photoshop magic. “Look at the amount of white space/between my arm and body/barbara and elisabeth seem to vanish/there in my underarm,” writes Rosie, giving her best forensic analysis on her blog at rosie.com

But TMZ left out the best part of Rosie’s freeform form-free riff:

“i did a movie called beautiful girls/an ensemble piece/by teddy demme
uma tim matt mira me/i saw the poster and said aloud/”i didn’t know courtney cox was in this film”/it wasn’t courtney–it was me/i called my agent–laughing/she called harvey w/i was on the phone listening
he said/so what- she should thank me–she looks a lot better/and that/my friends/is hollywood”
