Rosie O'Donnell vs. David Letterman: Whose monologue was meaner?

Rosie O’Donnell didn’t like what David Letterman had to say about her, or her fiancée Michelle Rounds, during the opening monologue on his show Tuesday night. But, rather than apply the old “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt” adage, O’Donnell opted to hurl said stones right on back. During the opening monologue of her show on OWN, O’Donnell criticized Letterman for his “loving, supportive comments,” when he joked, “The woman she is marrying, her fiance, was driving and her car broke down. And guess what happened? Rosie pulls up right behind her in her tow truck.”

After showing the clip from The Late Show with David Letterman to her audience, O’Donnell said, “Why is that Dave? Why? I don’t remember making fun of you when you had sex with all your interns! I didn’t do that. I didn’t make fun of your rampant, throbbing heterosexuality, did I Dave?” READ FULL STORY

OWS occupies 'Law & Order: SVU' episode. Where's Benson and Stabler when you need them?

While a large majority of Occupy Wall Street protesters don’t seem to take issue with celebrity support, visits, or participation in the movement, filming at their expense might be another thing entirely.

According to the New York Times, the filming of an episode of Law & Order: SVU was interrupted early Friday morning when more than 100 OWS protesters took over the downtown Manhattan Foley Square set, which was transformed to look like the camps in Zuccotti Park, the home base of the OWS movement, for an upcoming episode. (Can’t you just picture the scenario in which L&O: SVU gang stumbles upon the crime scene now? In my head the dialogue sounds a little something like this: “It looks like he’s occupying… the funeral home.”) READ FULL STORY

Parodies of Rick Perry's controversial campaign ad are going strong

You’ve almost made it too easy, Rick Perry.

In a controversial new campaign ad, the Texas governor, clad in a tan coat — which George Takei wonderfully pointed out on Twitter was almost the same one Heath Ledger wore in Brokeback Mountain (oops!) — complains that “there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.” The “not ashamed” Christian then promises that he’ll “end Obama’s war on religion.”  READ FULL STORY

Alec Baldwin has words for flight attendants in online, er, 'apology'?

Alec Baldwin was kicked off of an American Airlines flight on Monday, in part, for refusing to stop playing Words With Friends, but the 30 Rock star certainly had no shortage of words when he wrote a piece for The Huffington Post regarding the incident titled “My Flying Lesson.” (Ah, if only Carol had been his Captain!)

The now Twitter-less star (he quit the social networking site hours after sending out a series of angry tweets at the airline) had way more than a 140 characters in what can only be described as a non-apology apology. While Baldwin does begin his open letter by apologizing to his fellow passengers on the flight (“It was never my intention to inconvenience anyone”) the actor mostly aired his frustrations with the airline industry in general.

Alec Baldwin joins the pantheon of booted-from-planes celebrities... and leaves Twitter

It seems like celebrities being kicked off of airplanes is becoming as synonymous to air travel as those hard-to-open bags of peanuts, tiny bathrooms, annoying Captain spiels, and cliched jokes about the perils of flying.

On Tuesday, Alec Baldwin joined the growing list of stars who have been booted from planes. But Baldwin’s exit might be the best one yet, or at the very least, the most relatable considering a game of Words With Friends got him in trouble with American Airlines. The 30 Rock actor told his followers on Twitter, “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt.” (I like to imagine he was deeply immersed in a wildly competitive game with John Krasinski in which he kept using Yankees terminology.)

'The X Factor' on the scene: Simon doesn't know what's happening, but he knows he doesn't like it

“Does it get louder than this?” asked the woman sitting a few seats down from me at The X Factor, after one of the CBS pages asked her if she wanted earplugs before the show. At that point, the pre-show dance mega-mix was pumping through the Xanadome at a volume usually reserved for jet engines or Mary Murphy, but I quickly answered for the page. “Yes. Oh yes. It does.”

I thought about the health of that woman’s eardrums while Drew was singing her save-me song while the Xanadome, as it had been instructed to all night, erupted in a deafening torrent of cheering and cat-calls. READ FULL STORY

Miley Cyrus' supposed Occupy Wall Street support song and video stirs up mixed opinions

protester or organizer might argue, unless you’re wealthy or downright lucky (or, in this case, both… seriously, Universe?), it’s anything but a party in the USA right now.

Still, Miley Cyrus may be showing her support for the movement. Or, at least, her music is being used to do so. A new video — released by something called the Miley Cyrus Rock Mafia (look, I don’t know how to comprehend all of those particular words put together either, PopWatchers) — set to Cyrus’ song titled “Don’t Give Up: It’s a Liberty Walk!” features footage of Occupy rallies from around the world. The video even begins with a message that reads, “This is dedicated to the thousands of people who are standing up for what they believe in.” Watch the video after the jump:

Daniel Craig refers to the Kardashians as 'f--ing idiot(s)' in UK edition of GQ

Daniel Craig, star of the upcoming The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, has no tolerance for people who get divorced after 72 days of marriage and/or get oil enemas on television. (Or, as we refer to them here in the Colonies, the Kardashians.)

During an interview with the UK edition of GQthe famously private actor got onto the topic of the famously over-sharer Kardashian clan. “I think there’s a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel,” Craig said, “You can’t buy it back. You can’t buy your privacy back. Ooh, I want to be alone. F– you. We’ve been in your living room. We were at your birth. You filmed it for us and showed us the placenta, and now you want some privacy?” (Got that, Kourtney and Scott? No placenta footage. Not even for your terrible mom vlog. These are direct order from James freakin’ Bond.)

The 43-year-old continued about the reality television phenoms, “It is a career; I’m not being cynical. And why wouldn’t you? Look at the Kardashians, they’re worth millions… I don’t think they were that badly off to begin with, but now look at them. You see that and you think, ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f—ing idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions?’ I’m not judging it.” He then added, “Well, I am, obviously.” Craig. Daniel Craig.

Ann Coulter gets silenced on 'Morning Joe' for calling John McCain a 'douchebag' -- VIDEO

It looks like Ann Coulter, who has a long history of saying things, is going to have put a(nother) dollar in the Douche Bag Jar. This time around it’s for her actually calling someone a “douche bag.”

During her visit Tuesday to MSNBC’s Morning Joe, which already has a low tolerance for political name-calling, Coulter got the silent treatment from the show when she went on a tirade about Sen. John McCain, at one point apparently referring to the former presidential candidate as a “douche bag.” (“Just blur it all out,” host Joe Scarborough instructed.) Still, at least 10 seconds of Coulter’s verbal rampage were muted by the network, leaving viewers to ponder what else she could have possibly said. Probably something along the lines of this. Watch the moment, courtesy of Politco, here: READ FULL STORY

Katherine Heigl's hilarious FunnyOrDie anti-ball clip does, well, just that -- VIDEO

If you’ve always sort of suspected that Katherine Heigl has simply been out to take away a piece of your manhood, your theory has turned out to be somewhat true. Heigl is most definitely out to break your balls. And, no it’s not, as one might have guessed, because of Life As We Know It, 27 Dresses, or The Ugly Truth. In actuality, it’s because the actress really, truly despises testicles. Terrible, terrible testicles.

In her hilarious FunnyOrDie animal rights PSA, Heigl explains that her promotion to spay and neuter pets through the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation isn’t so much rooted in her love for dogs, but that balls — jiggly, Muppet-like, Hitler-producing balls — really gross her out. So, while she “can’t cut the nuts of human men… yet,” Heigl is still doing her part to rid the world of those pesky thigh-knockers. Watch the laugh-out-loud, albeit NSFW clip — er, sorry, sensitive word to use there — video below: READ FULL STORY
