Rosie O’Donnell Pokes Fun At Her Separation — And At Brian Williams’ Lying Scandal! At The Same Time!

Rosie O’Donnell had some pretty cutting remarks for Brian Williams over the weekend.

The future former host of The View really knows how to kick a guy when he’s down!

Preliminary ratings show that Williams’ lying scandal has cost NBC Nightly News; viewership in the 25-54 age range dropped an alarming 36 percent Friday night!

But that didn’t stop Rosie from keeping the newsman on blast. Actually, she burned herself pretty well while she was at it!

While presenting an award at the Athena Film Festival in New York on Saturday, Rosie reportedly pointed at a woman in the audience and joked:

“I don’t know who you are, but you may be my next wife.”

She followed the too-soon quip by saying:

“Maybe that’s the problem in my relationships; I see someone I like and I make s**t up like Brian Williams … I escaped on 9/11 from the twin towers. No, I didn’t; I got mixed up. F**king Lance Armstrong liar.”


She is definitely poking fun at her recent split with wife Michelle Rounds, but Brian Williams is getting the brunt of her ire.

We’re glad she’s at least in a joking mood, considering what she’s going through.

But it seems to us now is a terrible time to be in the comedian’s sights.
