Rosie O'Donnell acts immaturely enough when she spells words incorrectly and uses teenage girl-like text messaging speak in her blogs.

But the recent behavior by this former View host should prove to liberals that she's the last person we want representing us in the press.

The comedian laid into Elisabeth Hasselbeck - her former friend and cohost - in front of a 1,500-person audience on her cruise (from NYC to a private island in the Bahamas) for gay and lesbian families.

A witness tells Us Magazine that O'Donnell trotted out a giant photo of Hasselbeck doctored up as the devil, made a "crazy" gesture at the poster and said, "Her only f--king credit was Survivor. Come on!"

Sorry, Rosie. Not everyone can ride the coat tails of a friendship with Madonna to stardom.

Even liberals should shake their heads at the actions of Rosie O'Donnell these days. She needs to grow up.

From there, O'Donnell implied that the pair's famous last battle wasn't held on an even playing field because, like Tameka Foster, Hasselbeck is with child.

"I can't fight with pregnant people. Just go have your baby and have a nice life," the bitter loser said.

Those on the cruise, we hope, grew dismayed at this lame outburst. They should have asked for Lance Bass and Pedro Andrade to be their homosexual hosts instead.

Lastly, Rosie once again targeted Donald Trump. Recalls the witness: "Rosie said she'd love to break into his apartment and rub her belly all over him."

Hasselbeck's rep had no comment. Trump's rep could not be reached. But, even though it's scarcely celebrity news these days when O'Donnell lashes out, we can't help but plead with her to stop. Pick your battles, Rosie.

Rosie O'Donnell really hates the Iraq war. And to be perfectly honest, how can one not? Even former nemesis Donald Trump has stood by her on this one.

Much as Rosie annoys us regularly, at least in slamming the Iraq war, she's going after a worthy cause, rather than criticizing Tara Conner or American Idol for no reason at all.

Rosie O

But the outspoken critic goes to unusual, extreme and wildly controversial lengths to get her political views across. Recently, Rosie O'Donnell posted a bizarre picture of her 4-year-old daughter on her blog - looking like a terrorist.

It's a frightening sight, given that terrorists have been known to train children to be suicide bombers. And here we have Rosie, who has defended Iraq, Iran, and their leaders in lambasting the U.S. the war, posting a picture of her daughter dressed in camouflage and strapped with ammo.

The disturbing photograph was posted with this caption underneath it: "A picture is worth a thousand posts."

There was no explanation for the photo, but one can only assume it is meant to reflect the former View host's anti-war opinions - and how war destroys the lives of children.

Somewhere, Elisabeth Hasselbeck is fuming. And not smart, but sexy.

Meanwhile, the manly Ann Coulter ripped Rosie a new one with a blazing article in The Post Chronicle, branding O'Donnell "sick" and "hungry for attention."

Sounds like Britney Spears. But that's neither here nor there.

Coulter, the conservative blowhard, feels Rosie O'Donnell's stance on gun control is ridiculous, and quipped: "No one should have guns except my bodyguards," saying that when it comes to Rosie's personal safety, guns are okay, but when it comes to others, guns are bad.

Anne Coulter said of the disturbing photo of Rosie O'Donnell's daughter:

"I think this picture has set back gay adoption by about 20 years. I think this makes people think Rosie's kids should be taken away from her ... "

Wonder if Isaiah Washington agrees.

Rosie O'Donnell has left The View.

Unfortunately, the round mound of sound is still within full view of celebrity gossip writers - not to mention viable news outlets - everywhere.

The latest focal point of the gargoyle's attention: Britney Spears. What's surprising is that the fallen star has the full support of the embattled talk show host.

Rosie O'Donnell sent a video message to Spears, welcoming her to the Cyndi Lauper show June 30 that will feature none other O'Donnell on the drums. Yippee.

"Britney, if you're watching, honey, you and me â€" we're gonna share, like, a moment, 'cause I love you, kid!" O'Donnell said on the video during a tour stop in Texas.

Britney Spears: No Underwear

Spears' choreographer tells People that the pop star plans to join Lauper and others onstage at the Greek Theatre in L.A. June 30 for Lauper's "True Colors" concert.

She was going to audition two male dancers for the show, but Britney Spears failed to show up at the auditions - always a good sign.

O'Donnell says that's news to Lauper, though Britney Spears has been making "surprise" shows as she works on a new album, whose release date still has not been announced.

"If it is happening," says O'Donnell. "I'm thrilled, because I enjoy Britney."

Bet she would enjoy Britney Spears naked, if you know what we're talking about. We're talking about the fact that Rosie O'Donnell is a lesbian and thus likes the girl-on-girl action.Not that there is anything wrong with that in the slightest. Just saying.

In addition to Cyndi Lauper, the show is also scheduled to include Erasure, Debbie Harry, The Dresden Dolls, The MisShapes with special guest Jeffree Star and host Margaret Cho. Rosie O'Donnell is expected to perform a stand-up routine.

Hopefully, Elisabeth Hasselbeck gets a front-row seat.

Meanwhile, Britney Spears sent out a new mysterious message herself, posting it on the bottom of her Web site's homepage, reading:

"Mother to Grandmother, and my my, you're grand."

Yep, she's insane. Nothing much more to say about it.

Regardless of how you feel about Rosie O'Donnell, it was difficult to imagine elated contestants on The Price is Right hugging and kissing this controversial host when called on stage to bid on items during the popular game show.

Therefore, CBS should probably be grateful that this Elisabeth Hasselbeck basher turned down the gig because she didn't wish to relocate to L.A. for its shooting.

In her blog responding to a question about moving, O'Donnell says to the camera: "Here's the thing. I don't really need a job. I'm in a weird position. I don't need the money.

"I know you're not allowed to talk about money in America," she continues, "But I'm just saying I don't. So to get my entire family uprooted from their lives and move them across the country so that I can have a fantasy childhood indulgence job just doesn't seem fair."

Sounds reasonable enough to us. Especially if celebrity gossip rumors are true that Rosie hopes to be a backup dancer for Britney Spears instead.

O'Donnell, 45, and wife Kelli, 40, live outside New York City with sons Parker, 12, and Blake, 7, and daughters Chelsea, 9, and Vivi, 4. These underrated kids are rarely mentioned in the same circles as Suri Cruise and Jayden James Federline.

"They all are in school, they have friends, we love their school, we love our community, our house, our life, our home," O'Donnell says in her video. "If they were able to do it in New York it would be a different story. But it looks like it ain't gonna happen."

With Rosie now out of the picture, who do you think should fill the retired shoes of Bob Barker? We heard Isaiah Washington was looking for work...

Some people seem to think Grey's Anatomy should simply replace controversial, fired African-American actor Isaiah Washington with another star of similar disposition. Like Taye Diggs. The racist thinking goes: Who would notice the difference?

Somewhat similarly, reports are coming in that The View is considering replacing lesbian Rosie O'Donnell with one of two gay men: Mario Cantone or Ross Mathews.

People magazine says that Cantone - a frequent guest on the ABC chat-fest and the guy who played Charlotte's friend Anthony on Sex and the City - is the front-runner; Mathews is better known as "Ross the Intern" from The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Both of the men are slated to fill in as guest co-hosts next month: Cantone will appear on The View on the July 12; Mathews will take a turn in O'Donnell's old seat on July 17. We wonder how Elisabeth Hasselbeck feels about this development.

While a View spokesperson confirms that Cantone and Mathews will be guest co-hosting, he would not comment on who might fill the vacant seat.

"No offer has been made to anyone at this point," he said, also dispelling talk that the job belongs to Whoopi Goldberg.

Former co-host Debbie Matenopoulos has championed the idea of hiring a man ever since O'Donnell announced she was leaving.

"It is high time they put a gay man on that panel," Matenopoulos said to People. "They've said 'We can't put a man here.' I disagree. Why does it have to be guys against girls? I have a better time and solve more problems sitting with my gay guy friends than my girlfriends!"

But what about posing in Playboy, Debbie? She wasn't asked about that, leaving readers to focus on the hilarity that newswoman Jill Nicolini once donned her birthday suit for the magazine.

Come on down, Rosie O'Donnell, you're the next host of... The Price is Right!

Could these words be spoken to the former host of The View in the next few days? You can almost guarantee it, says TMZ, which reports CBS is talking to Rosie this week about taking over for Bob Barker on the popular game show.

And O'Donnell is all for it. She's ready to grab that skinny mic like it were the throat of Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

"If they asked me, I sure would ... I LOVE THE PRICE IS RIGHT," Rosie wrote on her blog, choosing to not use childish haiku for once to express herself.

While everyone might not love O'Donnell on TV again, pet lovers should at least be psyched.

In case Holly Madison nude photos aren't getting their point across well enough, PETA and others can take comfort in the fact that Rosie says she'd keep Barker's signature sign-off about spaying and neutering.

As it pertains to dogs and cats, of course. Sadly, no one took this action on Britney Spears.

Maybe Elisabeth Hasselbeck isn't the Devil. It's a concept worth contemplating, at least.

For all the venom spewed the way of this conservative talk show host, she's never publicly bashed Rosie O'Donnell. In fact, she's always treated her very fairly in any interview. For example:

"With Rosie, the conversation is always fun, real and true," Hasselbeck told People magazine at Friday's Daytime Emmys gifting lounge in Hollywood. "I think this year was really special, indeed. The show is so much about chemistry and great conversation. We certainly had that this year. It's been a really fantastic year."

Not for critics of Hasselbeck, though. She often seems more hated in the celebrity gossip world than Paris Hilton and Spencer Pratt put together.

As for O'Donnell, she's appearing as a special guest on Cyndi Lauper's True Colors tour, and played drums for the singer at Sunday night's gig in Columbia, Md. Afterwards, she tossed her sticks into the crowd like Tommy Lee.

Earlier in the evening, she gave the crowd her own take on her View experience.

"I got to tell you, I've been hanging around with those heteros for a full year and it's not fun," she said. "Turn around one minute and they'll stab you in the back with a high heel. They will."

Wait... what?!? For a supposedly liberal, open-minded person, is there a reason Rosie pointed to the sexual orientation of her former co-workers? O'Donnell is often more hypocritical than Pete Doherty would be giving anti-drug advice.

On her well-publicized feud with Donald Trump, Rosie said: "We have a difference of opinion, Donald and I. He likes his women thin and silent. I like large and loud. Every time I saw Trump on one of those shows saying I was fat and unappealing, I'm like, 'Pass the Doritos.'"

She also sounded off on Roe v. Wade, quipping: "I don't want anyone to have control over my body besides me and Angelina Jolie." Then, to reassure her partner of 10 years, who was at home, she added: "Just a little joke, Kelli. She's out sick. She'll never hear it. Don't you YouTube it, or it'll be two more years of counseling."

Forget how awkward a certain incident on The View was for co-hosts Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd last week, imagine what it was like backstage.

As Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck exchanged words, things were rather awkward for the guests in the greenroom.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Tim Hasselbeck

"All four of us were at a loss," Dancing with the Stars' Maksim Chmerkovskiy told People magazine of his time waiting out the argument with dance partner Laila Ali and fellow stars Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson. "It was a straight-up brawl."

Chmerkovskiy says the guests had been warned by View staffers that the show could get "intense" â€" and it quickly did. "At first everyone was sort of laughing, [like,] 'See, I told you it gets intense.' Then it was like, Okay maybe it's one of those very intense ones."

"But people were still giggling. But then it became a fight between [Rosie O'Donnell] and Elisabeth."

At the commercial break, Chmerkovskiy recalls stone-faced View employees running out of the room to deal with the fallout. Actress Alicia Silverstone, who was also in the greenroom, was not happy that her segment was next: "She was like, 'I don't want to go on now.' She had one of those hyperventilating moments where she was like, 'Okay, I'm really nervous.'"

Probably similar to how Tessa Horst when felt Andy Baldwin got down on one knee - but for very different reasons.

But the show went on, and Chmerkovskiy and Ali performed their dance without incident. "It was like nothing had happened," he says. "I thought great, this must be a normal day at The View."

Of course, it was far from it. Sources O'Donnell was genuinely upset by the bickering on the day she now refers to as "nuclear Wednesday."

But she's now at peace with it and "doesn't second-guess her decision at all," says O'Donnell's lifelong friend Jackie Ellard. "In fact, I'm sure she's sleeping better than she has in a long time."

And certainly better than Paris Hilton will in jail.

Thanks to People for this collection of celebrity sound bites...

"If I was her, I would hit someone the second I got in there and go into PC, protective custody. Then she's just got to sit in there and read some books."
- Law & Order: SVU star Ice-T, when asked by New York magazine if he had any advice for Paris Hilton before she went to jail.

THG NOTE: Kind of similar to our initial (Office Space-inspired) advice to her, which was to either kick someone's ass the first day, or become someone's bitch.

"What can I say besides... farewells are always difficult."
- Rosie O'Donnell, responding to fan support over her feud with her View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, during her regular blog Web cast. ABC and O'Donnell announced Friday that she's not returning to the show.

"On this one I think Rosie should win. I think anybody that's against the war in Iraq is the winner of the fight, because to justify the war in Iraq ... only an imbecile could do that."
- Rosie's former nemesis Donald Trump, siding with O'Donnell in her feud with Hasselbeck

"I feel fabulous... When I wake up in the morning and I haven't had my coffee and I stumble downstairs, I'm like, '... Oh, s---' I completely forget that I've done this. And I have a few moments where I'm, like, 'Who's that?'"
- X-Men star Anna Paquin, on joining the ranks of Hollywood stars who've gone blonde

"They were very sweet and they poured me a vodka and orange juice and then I was fine."
- Eva Mendes, on having to be coaxed to do her very first on-screen nude scene with Joaquin Phoenix for her new film We Own the Night

"To think that Yoko Ono would even see it makes me want to throw up."
- Paul Rudd, discussing taking on the role of John Lennon in the rock-biopic parody Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, to Entertainment Weekly

"Both are ways to make a good dishonest living."
- Keith Richards, on snorting his dad. Just kidding. What the guitar god refers is being a rock star compared to a pirate. Keith portrays Johnny Depp's dad in the new Pirates of the Caribbean sequel. Depp has admitted his portrayal of the character is based on Richards.

Rosie O'Donnell is "not sorry" to be leaving The View early.

On her blog yesterday, Rosie reacted to her decision to leave the ABC talkfest after having a major blowout with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck earlier in the week. She had been scheduled to leave the show when her contract expires in June.

In her annoying, immature style, O'Donnell answered reader questions on her site. When a fan wrote: "Sorry UR leaving early! I miss U when UR not on so now I wont watch! Best of luck to you!" O'Donnell answered, "dont b sorry/ i am not."

Does anything else find it hard to take Rosie seriously when she writes like that? It's like Lindsay Lohan trying to convince us that she's clean and sober.
When another fan, Tony, asked: "Don't you want to do an interview something to clear the air?," O'Donnell replied: "no interviews/ u watched it happen/ b 4 ur eyes."

O'Donnell also produced a 13-minute video in which she discusses the incident and shoots down celebrity gossip rumors that she trashed the dressing room, saying: "I've never trashed anything, frankly."

She does acknowledge that a friend, who was a producer for The View, drew a moustache on a picture of Hasselbeck at show's studios. "It was only one photo, people, and it was a magazine cut-out. It was a cute little joke on the way out."

Meanwhile, Rosie said she's never tried so hard in her life to be someone's friend, but it was just wasn't meant to be between her and Hasselbeck. Sort of like Mary Jo Eustace and Dean McDermott.

As for her place on the show, O'Donnell said: "I was really just like a foster kid for a year. We considered adoption, but I didn't really fit in with the family, and now it's time for the foster kid to go back home."

The comedian and outspoken liberal also said she was most upset about the show's use of a split screen during the argument with her co-host. It did give The View a Jerry Springer-like feel.
