What on earth is going on between Donald Trump (The Donald) and Rosie O'Donnell?
Billionaire Donald Trump, whose reality TV Show "The Apprentice" took the USA by storm two years ago and openly gay Rosie O'Donnell, the co-host of ABC's Morning Talk Show, "The View", have been in a feud since The Donald said that Miss USA, Tara Conner, should be given a second chance - that, is she should keep her crown.
Tara Conner had earlier admitted to underage drinking. (She had been seen partying in New York bars even though she was under the legal age for drinking, 21).
The Donald (the owner of the Miss Universe Organization, which includes the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA Pageants) held a press conference on Tuesday to comment on the Conner incident.
Apparently Rosie didn't feel that The Donald had the moral fortitude to comment on the case, seeing that he has had two divorces and has had children as a result of his affairs with other women.
In turn, the Donald has been throwing verbal blows as well, calling Rosie "unattractive" and a "bully" and saying that "The View" will fail as a result of her involvement with the TV Show.
He has even threatened to take Rosie's partner, Kelli, away from her :).
This is either just another example of two adults behaving badly, or an attempt to boost TV Ratings.
But whatever the real motive is behind this "feud", it makes for entertaining television!:)
