Barbara Walters

Drawing Blood


These are fighting words!

Rosie O’Donnell is dropping her new memoir, Celebrity Detox, next month and she does not mince her words when it comes to talking about Barbara Walters.

Addressing her former boss in the book, Rosie says, “And Barbara. At some point, a person gets tired. It’s inevitable,” the New York Post reports. Barbara Walters is almost twice my age. At some point it becomes necessary to step back. Everyone has to go. Going is part of the gig.”

O’Donnell goes on to add, “I would be less-than-honest if I were to say that there is no trouble between Barbara and I. I mean, our differences are obvious.”

What lead to the tension between Rosie and Barbara? Jealousy, O’Donnell alleges.

Rosie say that during commercial breaks on The View, audience members would sometimes shout out, “I love you, Rosie” ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ “and Barbara politely tells them in a schoolteacher tone, ‘It is impolite to say I love you to one person when there are four of us up here.’ ”

For her part, Walters is avoiding discussing O’Donnell’s book in detail.

Asked for comment, Barbara has said, “Rosie sent me the book with a note telling me how much she loved me. I have read the book ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ and I would like to concentrate on the love that she sent.”

Where is the love????
