Looks like Chris Brown has an unlikely ally in the celebrity world: Rosie O’Donnell.

The outspoken talk show host said on her radio show Friday that Chris' detractors, along with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts, may be guilty of racism.

That's because, O'Donnell, says, people criticized Brown's window-breaking tantrum on GMA more than, she argues, the equivalent by white stars is lambasted.

“I just don’t know why this kid seems to be held to a different standard than anyone else,” O’Donnell tells executive producer Janette Barber on the program.

Asked if the reaction, which Rosie addressed for the first time because she had been on vacation, was racially based, O'Donnell replied, “I totally think [it] is.”

“I also think it’s why he felt he was safer with Robin Roberts.”

O’Donnell doesn’t flesh out this point at all other than later adding that she felt “badly” for Chris Brown and “mildly angry” at Roberts while the interview.

Given the context, though, it wouldn’t be amiss to interpret it as an accusation of some sort of racial betrayal on Roberts’ part not to go easier on Brown.

Rosie O'Donnell is a single woman again.

An insider confirms to The New York Post that the actress/comedian has split from Tracy Kachtick-Anders after approximately one year of dating. The two were first seen holding hands in Miami in December 2009. Combined, they had 10 kids, prompting Rosie to refer to their brood as the "Gay-dy Bunch."

Rosie Takes the Field

Rosie O'Donnell is now fielding offers for a new girlfriend.

"They have definitely split up, but it is very complicated because their kids are very close," says the newspaper's source. "They still spend a lot of time together."

Kachtick-Anders runs Open Arms Campaign, a nonprofit organization that helps recruit adoptive families in the LGBT community. O'Donnell, meanwhile, can see where Billy Ray Cyrus is coming from.

Billy Ray Cyrus may have come out and directly blamed his daughter's involvement in show business for recent troubles, but Rosie O'Donnell doesn't think he meant it.

Asked about the country singer's rant to GQ this month, in which he said Hannah Montana "destroyed my family," Rosie told Access Hollywood that Cyrus was just being a concerned parent.

“I think he’s doing what a lot of us are doing that have teenagers, including me, [saying], ‘What the hell is going on here? I thought I was in control of this place and now the kids are acting out. The animals are ruining the zoo!’”

Does O'Donnell think Hollywood is responsible for Miley's behavior? No. It's just a teenager acting like a teenager.

“A 16 or 18-year-old girl is going to separate from the parents no matter what. They’re going to smoke some salvia... they’re going to drink some beer. This is what happens when kids are 18 and they’re trying to separate."

Teen Mom has plenty of critics. Rosie O'Donnell? Not one of them.

At the Sundance Film Fest in Park City, Utah, the mom of four said that she and her teenage daughter recently checked out the controversial MTV hit.

"I have to say it's interesting," O'Donnell said, explaining a personal reason for tuning in. "My daughter is 13. I watch with her. I think the fantasy for adopted children is to have a baby of their own, then keep it, which their mother did not."

Added the comic: "The rate of teenage pregnancy is up, so when my daughter saw that [Teen Mom 2] was on the air, I said 'Well, let's watch it.'"

"At the end of almost every episode the mothers say they wish they used protection or waited, 'My whole life is over,' or 'I can't live this way.'"

"I think that sends out a positive message."

Remember Donald Trump? He's a real estate mogul who formerly anchored a hit reality show.

Remember Rosie O'Donnell? She's a controversial talk show host who hasn't been heard from since she left The View.

Remember the hilarious feud between these two? Probably not. A refresher: In 2006, Rosie criticized Trump for "acting as a moral compass for 20-year-olds" when he chose to keep Tara Conner as Miss USA, despite a series of salacious photos.

In response, The Donald went off on O'Donnell, referring to her as a "disgraceful, horrible human being, a terrible person." And those were the compliments!

Now, days after it was announced that Rosie was returning with a daytime talk show, Trump has gone back on the offensive. He told Extra this week:

"She's a loser. Her other shows didn't do well, this one won't do well. Everything she touches is a failure, she's a failure."

We love it. Do you think Rosie's show will fail? Do you think Donald Trump should have better things to do with his life than pick this fight?

Choose a side: Team Rose or Team The Donald?

Seriously, is anyone on Team Jay?!?

While David Letterman and other talk show hosts have made their feelings known on Leno and the NBC late-night mess, other celebrities are now speaking out. Take it away, Rosie O'Donnell!

"It was a really crappy move on Leno's part," the former View co-host said. "Conan moved his family across the country and his entire staff to get a shot at what he worked 17 years for only to get it taken away by the bully on the playground who doesn't want to let go."

Rosie vs. Jay

Earlier this week, Leno pleaded innocence, as if he had no idea this was in the works at NBC. He even, mysteriously, told viewers not to blame Conan O'Brien for what's going on.

But Rosie thinks Jay should come clean and stop pretending to be America's male sweetheart.

"I think in the old days of show biz you can claim ignorance. But today with the internet, no way. There's no way people are going to buy the crap anymore."

Is anyone out there buying it? We're certainly not. Leno should have walked away years ago.

Rosie O'Donnell has spoken out about new girlfriend Tracy Kachtick-Anders.

On her Sirius XM radio show yesterday, the former talk show host described the new woman in her life  as a "lovely, lovely, lovely, lovely person."

Referring to her relationship with the an artist and mother of six, Rosie said it was "yummy. I love it all ... It's almost too good to be true!"

Even Elisabeth Hasselbeck has to be happy to hear that O'Donnell has found love once again. Okay, maybe not.

Rosie

O'Donnell added that she's shocked the pair has received the amount of attention that's come their way since they were seen holding hands in Miami December 29.

"I had no idea that it would be on CNN," Rosie said, mocking a news anchor: "'Rosie has a new girlfriend – tonight at 6.'"

In October, O'Donnell announced a split from long-time partner Kelli Carpenter. Reports said Kelli had moved out a long time ago.

"We have different styles of living," Rosie later explained to Howard Stern. "I'm very messy. She's very not."

Since leaving The View in mid-2007, Rosie O'Donnell has remained out of the spotlight.

About a month after the comedian admitted long-time partner Kelli Carpenter moved out of their house two years ago, her rep has confirmed a new woman in Donnell's life: Tracy Kachtick-Anders, a Texas-based artist.

A photo of the couple walking together has been plastered across the Internet over the last 24 hours.

Who is Kachtick-Anders?

She is the founder of Open Arms Campaign, a non-profit organization aimed at recruiting and fostering adoptive families within the LGBT community.

"I have become an activist and work to educate everyone, not only about the plight of foster children, but also the inequality that faces LGBT people in their quest to create families," she has written.

Kachtick-Anders walks the walk, too: she has five adopted children.

O'Donnell, meanwhile, will host A Family Is A Family Is A Family: A Rosie O'Donnell Celebration, a HBO documentary in January that challenges the traditional ideas of family. We doubt Carrie Prejean will turn in for it.

In at least one way, Rosie O'Donnell misses the view.

We don't mean the ABC talk show on which she was a panel member; we mean the literal view on that series, the one that enabled the controversial star to ogle on-air rival Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck at Fashion Week

O'Donnell appeared on the Howard Stern Sirius Satellite radio program Monday and was asked by the host: "When you look at [Hasselbeck] physically, you don't want her?"

Replied Rosie: "See, the want is the big thing. I find her very attractive. She's very attractive, I think."

Rosie O'Donnell disagree with the political views of Elisabeth Hasselbeck. But she loves her former co-host's biceps.

However, O'Donnell's true fantasy woman is pregnant Angelina Jolie:

"She's got a little darkness - a little kind of weird sexuality going on."

For Rosie's sake, in that case, here's a photo of Angelina Jolie naked. Enjoy, crazy one!

While we'd be surprised if a Kristin Davis sex tape exists, we can't say the following new friendship is the least bit shocking:

American Idol reject Danny Noriega and The View reject Rosie O'Donnell are getting along like peanut butter and jelly these days.

After the former was voted off Idol, the latter invited him to sing aboard her "R Family Vacations" cruise. As you can see, Noriega accepted the offer, as he and Rosie are making for quite the annoying pair.

Meanwhile, American Idol airs tonight. It's not hard to imagine Noriega and O'Donnell watching together, doing each other's hair and making fun of Simon Cowell.
