Rosie O'Donnell's back AND so are her uber strong opinions!
Rosie not only used her big return to The View to talk about her super scary heart attack, but to also defend Dylan Farrow and her open letter that revealed scary deets alleging sexual abuse by her own father, Woody Allen.
Which, you know, is interesting, since the leader of the club, Lady Barbara Walters, just recently took the stance that Woody Allen isn't as bad as people are making him out to be.
Controversy! It's just like old times!!!
We missed you, gurl!!!
Ch-ch-check it out (above) and …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
It’s been a bitter, back and forth battle of he-said, she-said that has lasted more than 20 years.
Woody Allen and Mia Farrow’s relationship has been full of shocking revelations from both parties, including accusations that the Oscar-winning director once sexually molested their adoptive daughter Dylan.
Just last weekend, Dylan, now 28, penned a letter to the New York Times detailing the abuse she says Allen inflicted upon her. The published allegation has reopened old wounds and caused a new wave of controversy.
60 Minutes dug into its own archives this week and rereleased an interview they conducted with Woody in 1992, while he was in the middle of being investigated for child abuse. He tells Steve Kroft that not only did he never harm Dylan or any of Mia’s other children, but that Farrow and her actions should be the one’s on trial!
According to Woody, Mia gave him a very disturbing Valentine’s Day card that included
Dylan Farrow shocked the world with the open letter she wrote to the New York Times over the weekend, accusing her adoptive father Woody Allen of molesting her as a child.
The 28-year-old is now opening up again about how difficult it was to come forward with these allegations — and your heart will go out to her.
She shared her side of the story, saying:
Woody Allen has avoided talking in detail about his abuse scandal for over two decades, but it looks like that silence is coming to an end.
After Dylan Farrow wrote her open letter to the New York Times accusing her adopted father of sexual abuse, the controversy is coming to a head.
Even Woody himself can't stay quiet anymore.
The Times Editorial Page is in talks with the Blue Jasmine director to pen his own response to the letter - and it was his idea! Editor Andrew Rosenthal says:
A lot has been going on in Hollywood lately.
Not only did we all lose talented actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, but Dylan Farrow also came out and opened up about her accusations of Woody Allen molesting her as a child.
Cate Blanchett is actually connected to both people making headlines these days, and it seems it's making her take a step back.
While she's been cleaning up at awards shows, she's also working to promote her new film Monuments Men. Unfortunately, that promotional work won't be as extensive as planned because she's canceling some TV interviews.
She reportedly bailed on interviews with Good Morning America and Live! With Kelly and Michael. Her rep commented on why this decision was made:
Looks like Barbara Walters isn't the only one with Woody Allen's back!
Piers Morgan interviewed the 78-year-old filmmaker's ex-girlfriend Stacey Nelkin on Monday night's show and, believe it or not, she RUSHED to his defense. She passionately believes, apparently, that the Crimes & Misdemeanors director is incapable of molesting children and that Mia Farrow is merely a "woman scorned."
Stacey also claimed that she and Woody started dating while she was 17 and he was 42.
For those without calculators, that's a 25 year age difference!
Uuhh, doesn't that also mean they got together when she was a minor? We aren't sure this revelation is going to garner the A-list auteur any additional support.
Ch-ch-check out Stacey's defense of the director for yourself…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Oooooh!! Is that some shade we smell?!?!
Even though Cate Blanchett released a pretty polite statement the other day about Woody Allen's molestation drama, but it seems like she's definitely picked sides now!
The fashion-forward actress was at the Santa Barbara Film Festival accepting an award for her work in Blue Jasmine and during her acceptance speech she thanked pretty much everyone involved with the film.
And when we say everyone, we mean like EVERYONE except maybe the extras…and her director!
Cate definitely thanked him when she accepted her award at the SAGs AND when she accepted her statue during the Critics' Choice Awards so this has GOT to be a sign!
We guess even though she didn't want to "officially" choose Dylan Farrow over Woody, she "unofficially" did by throwing her shade at the director!
You go, gurl!
Ch-ch-check out Cate's whole speech & dismissal of Woody…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
