This didn't take long, did it?!

When Oprah Winfrey decided to offer Rosie O'Donnell her own talk show on her OWN network, we had our suspicions that this wouldn't end well. Sure, The Big O made a preemptive strike by checking on Rosie to see if she was "crazy," but it turns out that wasn't enough. Sources are reporting that the ladies are butting heads big time!

An insider at the network explains that Oprah and Rosie can't find a way to see "eye to eye on the tone of Rosie's new show." Oprah reportedly wants to see Rosie churn out a "friendly daytime talk show where viewers get to spend an hour with the old Rosie they used to love." Rosie has other ideas, more "political" and outspoken ideas, like an hour-long fun-fest of sharing her "liberal views."

But the direction of the show isn't the only thing the ladies are at odds about. The insider adds:

"The two are disagreeing over staff. Oprah wants Rosie to use an executive producer that she knows and trusts while Rosie insists she be able to pick her own, fearing whoever Oprah picks will be a spy. It's a bad way to start off, considering they haven't even taped a single show yet."

Hey, Rosie. We feel ya girl, but The Big O is top dog for a reason. Maybe its best to let your agenda take a backseat for a bit, if you want to see this show come to pass.

Because make no mistake - Oprah's boss! She'll win this fight, no question! Sorry!

UPDATE: Rosie is denying the feud!

Rosie has responded to the accusations of dramz between her and "O" over Twitter, tweeting:

"read I was feuding with o - not true …"

We wish we were on a first letter basis with Oprah. Guess we'll just have to stick with The Big O until we make that leap.

Rosie says all is good between the two, but do U believe it?

    Rosie needs to just do as shes asked at her job like everyone else in the world. Besides I dont think people want to watch angry, political, talk from Rosie O'Donell (or anyone). If they were looking for that they would go to CNN or Fox News for goodness sakes.



  2. 2

    She can do whatever she wants, I will not be watching. It is people like Rosie that set the Gay community back a ways. She should follow Ellen's lead more often. People like Ellen and Johnny Wier show the world that being gay is just being themselves, and that is wonderful Rosie shoves her views down everyone's throat, and heaven forbid if you disagree with her views.



  3. 3

    Don't know why Oprah would want anything to do with this loud mouth.



  4. 4

    Maybe both can eat out GAYle's STINKY, SMELLY TWAT???



  5. 5

    Do we really need another chat show or political program? I'd rather see Rosie perform in a live Tijuana sex show picking up quarters with her puss*y.



  6. 6

    who left the cow-barn door open again?



  7. 7

    This story is bullshit Rosie tweeted:

    @Rosie read I was feuding with o - not true .



  8. 8

    ANOTHER MADEUP BULLSHIT STORY. LOCAL NEWS "THIS MORNING" HERE IN LOS ANGELES INTERVIEWED THE 2 NEW WRITERS FOR ROSIES SHOW ON THE OWN NETWORK…THEY LOOK FORWARD TO IT AIRING IN "LATE SPRING." GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE REPORTING PLEASE!



  9. 9

    Why am I not surprised if this is true. Rosie is an angry person and gets mad at the world. I have no time for her negative energy.



  10. 10

    Rosie is a big fat bag of hot air. Nobody wants to listen to her big mouth ranting and raving and shoving her views down everyones throat. Oprah would be smart to just cut her loose now. It's never going to work out because Rosie can't get along with anyone.



  11. 11

    The story is total bullshit. But IF it were true, Oprah is not the end all be all. She has a serious power/control issue, despite her lovely, sweet, deeply kind appearance.



  12. 12

    I have a feeling that this isn't really true- a false controversy. I'm sure that there has been negotiating back and forth, they are both smart and talented women! I think that Oprah should take what Rosie wants seriously. Her show was INCREDIBLY successful, and like it or not, she made THE VIEW relevant. I never watched that show until Rosie was on.

    I can't wait for the show.



  13. 13

    This story sounds wildly exaggerated if not complete BS. Rosie was gushing about Oprah's show yesterday so it doesn't sound like there's tension. Plus Oprah just made Rosie in charge of OWN's documentary film club too. But if there is a disagreement over who should produce, I think Rosie should listen to Oprah only because Oprah is good at picking producers. I've watched her behind the scenes show on OWN and the producers she has look great. Rosie would probably pick a producer who shares her values & politics, but that doesn't mean they have talent.

    But either way Rosie will be great. People act like Rosie's some kind of train wreck, but the truth is every talk show she's hosted has been a smashing success. Her solo show was second only to Oprah in the ratings at its peak & won a ton of Emmys, and she single handedly made "The View" relevant. Rosie is wildly talented.



  14. 14

    Who the hell would want to watch "an hour long funfest" of Rosie sharing her political views?

    Re: Rubber Rat – While wearing Crocs!



  16. 16

    but to be honest, why hire Rosie if Rosie can't be Rosie?



  17. 17

    When I bought my satellite radio I was interested in Oprah radio. It started out great but then they cancelled a lot of great shows and started pulling shows from the 90's to play as "best of Oprah." I switched to Rosie, everday 10am-12pm. I really missed her. She plays off her group of friends about her real life and theirs. She needs to keep it real life and not fall on the celebrity interviews. I'll miss her when she switches to TV… I need a satellite dish now for TV show on OWN



  18. 18

    I dont care about this. If it is true, Oprah knew what she was getting herself into. The only thing that sucks is Rosie leaving satellite radio. She is great on the radio and it will be sad not to have her there.

  19. @v@ says – reply to this

    Feud marketing, and then of course Rosie says it isn't true. Blecchhh.



  20. 20

    Rosie, Rosie, Rosie! I loved you on VH1 girls and your one of the best comedy gals I know. My kids and I were huge fans of your show, especially the crafts! No one wants to hear a bitter Mo! I got plenty of bitter in my life. Please bring the old Rosie back! I love her.



  21. 21

    I'd believe Rosie before anything I read on this "reality show / shitty music" promoting site. slimy anyone ?



  22. 22

    People forget how well Rosie's show did. She used to have better ratings than Oprah. I doubt though that they are butting heads.



  23. 23

    lianasv Rosie did have excellent ratings but never as good as Oprah. She was second only to Oprah for a while but never actually beat her. The only day time talk show to ever beat Oprah in the ratings was Springer circa 1998, but that didn't last long.



  24. 24

    well one thing is for sure, I don't believe anything fatty Perez writes. " Oprah Oprah Winfrey
    I get so sick of people trying to create fights and feuds when women are in business. Don't buy into it."



  25. 25

    These stories are always exaggerated, but if there's any truth to this story, Oprah should let Rosis do what she wants. Rosie's intelligent, interesting, funny and has a history of success. She'll bring in viewers no matter what. She's the one who put that stupid show "The View" on the map.



  26. 26

    Don't ever believe we gay guys hang with lesbos. Not true! They are nuts! Gay men avoid them for a reason.



  27. 27

    I would love to see Rosie on TV once again. I truely don't believe they are fighting, its just a tactic to get people more interested in the show. If you like Rosie watch it, if you don't then don't watch her TV show! Its simple.



  28. 28

    hilarious!!!!! barbara and perez giving rosie advice based on a rumor! pathetic, self-absorbed trailer trash. both of you!



  29. 29

    bullshit!



  30. 30

    I could.nt be happier
    Rosie is a trash bag, a hefty trash bag, and Oprah is no better
    Rosie did dish Oprah several years ago, talking about her and Gail being GAY.later Rosie denied the stories, but they were there in her own Ask Rosie
    Now Oprah has her exactly where she wants her, and Big O is going to make her squeal
