Trump vs. Rosie, And The Devil Wears Sweatpants

trump_head_2.jpgOur boy Donald Trump didn’t take too kindly to Rosie O’Donnell‘s View on his tear-jerky Miss USA press conference earlier this week. Rosie called The Donald a “snake-oil salesman” and the press conference a publicity stunt. [ED NOTE: Hmm, kinda like the View itself. But, seriously, why does anyone care what the View gagglers say? How many 'ching-chongs' do you need?] Trump fired back:

“She says things that come to her mouth, she’s not smart, she’s crude, she’s ignorant and to be honest I look forward to suing Rosie.”

Meanwhile, a character apparently based on Rosie appears in Little Pink Slips, a novel by Sally Koslow, ex editor-in-chief of McCall’s pushed aside to make room for O’Donnell. Radar reports:

Bebe Blake, O’Donnell’s fictional stand-in, likes dudes and has red hair, but she shares her inspiration’s foul mouth, fondness for bicycle shorts, and sturdy physique. In two preview chapters now making the rounds, Koslow seems to particularly relish elaborating on that last detail, noting Blake’s “well-fed face,” “lady wrestler legs,” and “boots that looked compromised trying to support her.”
