Sorry, Kelly Ripa. You're old news.

Rosie O'Donnell has turned her wrath from your non-offensive remarks to the lifestyle and financial portfolio of a certain reality TV host with weird hair.

O'Donnell, Rosie

For some reason, The View co-host has decided to attack Donald Trump for the way he handled recent problems with Miss USA. It began on Wednesday's show, when Rosie spewed:

"(He) left the first wife â€" had an affair. (He) had kids both times, but he's the moral compass for 20-year-olds in America. Donald, sit and spin, my friend," she said in reference to the Tara Conner scandal.

The war of words continued later on when Rosie hid behind her computer screen to fire away on her blog. (What, she doesn't have a MySpace account?)

In a new entry, O'Donnell reproduced a lengthy article from the online encyclopedia site Wikipedia about Trump's finances â€" in particular, his reported 1990 business bankruptcy.

The entry is to help support her claim, made on The View Wednesday, that Trump has a shaky financial past. The Donald has threatned to sue her over the remarks - as well as take away her lover, Kelli. No, really.

In her posting, O'Donnell adds: "i will let u know if the donald sues me/or if kelli leaves me for one of his pals/dont u find him charming."

Almost as charming as you, Rosie. Now go apologize for real to Suri Cruise and all the other Asians you've recently offended.

She may have been given a last-minute reprieve by the man who owns the Miss USA pageant (and most things in America), but don't be so certain that the wild partying that almost got Tara Conner stripped of her title is over.

Old habits die hard, after all. Nicole Richie, who's been starving herself to death and passing out in clubs since 2004, knows this all too well.

Trump vs. Prejean

For the moment, at least, Tara Conner is all smiles. But despite a promise to attend rehab, she knows what's going down as soon as she leaves this press conference conducted by her de facto boss: Boozing hard, for sure. Getting absolutely tanked, and possibly even making out with Constantine Maroulis again. You go where the night takes you!

The bronzed, publicity-loving Donald Trump, meanwhile, can't help but think about how loaded he is... in an entirely different sense of the word.

We recently reported on the trouble Miss USA, Tara Conner, has found herself in. But we weren't aware of the man who will decide her fate.

It's Donald Trump. Conner may wish to pack her crown already, considering no one loves to say "you're fired" more than this real estate tycoon.

Trump vs. Prejean

Trump co-owns the Miss Universe Organization with NBC, though neither he nor Conner's side would comment on what prompted the investigation.

"I can't really talk about it now," Trump told the AP. "But we have to make a decision. There is no question about that."

Come on, The Donald. There's gotta be some question over taking such harsh action against a champion who simply wants to let loose like J.R. Rotem and his gaggle of girls.

TMZ.com first reported that pageant officials were concerned about Conner's behavior. Lark-Marie Anton, spokeswoman for the Miss Universe Organization (which produces the Miss USA pageant), said Miss USA is considered a role model and must act accordingly.

Behavior such as underage drinking is not acceptable, she said, sounding like the antithesis of Dina Lohan.

Trump said that if Conner â€" a 5'5" blonde who lives in New York City and made an appearance on the most recent season of Project Runway â€" gets the boot, runner-up Miss California Tamiko Nash would assume the crown.

Not just any grandfather - the BEST grandfather in the world.

Indeed, the elder Donald Trump is set to welcome his first grandchild into the world now that Donald Trump Jr. and his wife of one year, Vanessa, are expecting their first kid.

Trumped Up

"Everyone's very excited," Vanessa, 28, told People magazine. Although "if you mention the 'grandpa' word (to Donald Sr.), he might not be so excited."

Mention Kevin Federline to him, however, and the Donald has a lot to say.

Of course, Trump and his wife, Melania, recently had a son named Barron. So the offspring of Donald Jr. will be just a year or so younger than his uncle. It's complicated stuff - and Caroyln Kepcher isn't around anymore to help sort it out.

"They'll be more like brothers, or brother and sister," said Vanessa, who wants her baby's sex to be a surprise.

Meanwhile, Vanessa wants a big family according to Junior.

"She (wants) five," Don said. "I'll wait till she cranks out one and then I want to renegotiate that back a bit."

We stared today quoting Donald Trump on the relationship between his daughter, Ivanka, and Lance Armstrong. We might as well end it with more from The Apprentice host, right?

Here are more random nuggets from the toupee-wearing one's interview with Larry King:

Donald Trump Profile

On Angelina Jolie and her father Jon Voight:
"Her father is a nice guy. I think she treats him like a dog … I mean this poor sap he comes along and he practically begs her, ‘I want to see my grandson. I want to see this.' I mean if I were with him, I'd say ‘Forget it. It's over.'"

"I think he's a great actor and [Angelina] just treats him terribly. She's been with so many guys she makes me look like a baby, OK, with the other side. And, I just don't even find her attractive. That has nothing to do with why I said it, though."

On Brad Pitt saying he and Angelina won't marry until everyone can:
"He made that statement, right, and he made it like he's doing this wonderful thing for humanity. I think he probably made it just because he doesn't want to get married, which is, you know, not so bad."

On Kevin Federline:
"I didn't he was right for her in all fairness. Hey, look what happened to her, she's a mess. So, what happens now is I heard the other day that his all-time hero is Donald Trump … You know when somebody likes you, you say ‘Hey.' So, I totally changed my mind. I think Kevin Federline is fantastic."

** THG Note: No one in the history of humanity has uttered those words before.

** THG Note II: We can't wait until Heather Mills marries Donald Trump.

Forget beating cancer, winning the Tour de France (oh, seven times) and preparing for the NYC Marathon, Lance Armstrong is in the news these days for who he may or may not be dating.

Namely, Ms. Ivanka Trump.

Trumped Up

While recent rumors confirm these two are merely friends, we have to hear it from Donald Trump himself before knowing what believe. Fortunately, the real state mogul cleared it all up with Larry King.

"They talk," Trump said. "I don't think that would be for her and perhaps not for him, but he's a great guy but they are friends. I know that and they do talk."

Friends that talk. For Lance and Ivanka, that could mean nothing but a platonic relationship. For someone like Lindsay Lohan, of course, that still means some serious hitting of skins.

In the interview, which will air on Larry King Live tonight Trump talks about his daughter's potential suitors ("There is no man that is good enough for her"), along with how Ivanka's dates are greeted ("Usually with bodyguards, they beat him up").

The Donald even weighed in on the phenomenon that is Paris Hilton:

"Paris said she wants to build a brand just like Donald Trump. And I don't know if she's done it the same way but she is smart like a fox. People say, 'Oh, she's not smart, she's not this, she's not that.' She's done a very good job."

Actually, The Donald, Paris herself said she wasn't smart. Remember, Trumpy, money doesn't equal brains. Or happiness.

Take that, Martha Stewart! You don't have a line of suitcases now, do you?!?

We can imagine Donald Trump taking pleasure in such thoughts as he rolls out a new line of luggage and travel goods, part of the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection, naturally. It already includes shirts, suits and other merchandise.

The manufacturer, Badanco Enterprises, says in its press-release that the line will "enable consumers to travel and do business in comfort and luxury - Trump style," which appears to mean that lucky owners will have the Trump crest emblazoned all over their gear.

In related news, rumors of a luxury line of knee pads are circulating, so consumers can get down to business, Lindsay Lohan style.

Meanwhile, starting next Tuesday on the Golf Channel, Trump will be pimping out his Trump National golf course in Los Angeles for the network's reality series "The Big Break VI: Trump National." The reality series will pit men and women against each other in the usual series of challenges, along with emotional ebbs and flows, for a chance to compete with the world's best golfers.

That's golfers, Kevin Federline. Not slackers. You aren't eligible.

He may not look like he's having the best time, but Donald Trump is smiling on the inside. Not because he's watching Roger Federer dispatch Andy Roddick in the U.S. Open final Sunday afternoon, but because he marries models. Most recently, Melania Knauss (right), seen here with the D-Train at the National Tennis Center holding the couple's 5-month-old son, Barron. What an adorable little family.

At one critical point in the match, with Federer about to seize momentum, Trump (who recently axed Apprentice co-star Carolyn Kepcher) was overheard uttering at Roddick, "Andy, you're fired." Okay, that didn't happen... and the probability of Roddick caring, if it did, would be only slightly higher than the humor quotient of the above joke. Sorry for wasting your time with it.

Does it get any better than a fight between two egomaniacal, rich, reality television stalwarts?

Probably.

Nevertheless, the feud between Donald Trump and Martha Stewart has returned and caught our interest. Stewart is blasting Trump for firing former Apprentice sidekick, Carolyn Kepcher.

"Donald is out of control," Stewart said. "By the time he's finished, he will have fired everyone around him and there will be nobody left."

The Martha even went on to pretend to pity The Donald.

"Poor Donald will be sitting there on his little pedestal all by himself. He needs to be careful!"

The two self-involved, spoiled celebrities first butted heads in October 2005, when Trump blamed Stewart for pulling viewers away from his own Apprentice with a lame version of her own.

The feud came to a head in February, when Trump skewered Stewart in an open letter, blaming her performance for her show's failure, ending it with a warning:

"Be careful or I will do a syndicated daytime show, perhaps called The Boardroom, and further destroy the meager ratings you already have!"

Wow. If only Dancing with the Stars could be this heated.

"I almost can't believe my long-time friend Donald Trump wrote it," Stewart said in a statement to People magazine at the time.

And we can't believe Suri Curise exists. These things happen.

Donald Trump is a man of the people. The rich, rich people who are willing to kiss up to the mogul.

Evidently, Carolyn Kepcher no longer qualifies as such. The real estate tycoon and star of The Apprentice just fired his right-hand woman.

"What I did was a good thing for Carolyn," he told The New York Post. "I'm doing something that's best for her. She's a terrific person."

Trump's terrific daughter, Ivanka, will take over Caroyln's role this season on the show.

While the newspaper reported that Kepcher is "devastated," she sounded upbeat in a statement that said they had "different visions for my future role in the company" and thanked Trump for being "an extraordinary boss and a great mentor."

Trump, however, claims Kepcher had turned into a "prima donna" who had become more caught up in promoting her own career than her work. Somewhere, Paris Hilton nodding in agreeance.

Wait, she has no work to ever speak of.

"Let's put it this way: She enjoyed the success of The Apprentice very much," Trump said.

The Donald, of course, is not one to tolerate self-promotion of any kind. Similarly, Ashlee Simpson hates when food goes to waste.
