Rosie O'Donnell Learns to Share Her Toys

Rosie O’Donnell makes peace with her former “The View” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck sending her baby gifts for 2-month-old son Taylor Thomas and 2-year-old Grace.

“I sent something for him and something for his big sister,” said Rosie. “Because, as the mother of four, I know that when the newborn arrives, the most important thing is a sibling gift. For [Taylor], it was a lot of clothes, because babies spit up a lot. I go to Baby Gap. There is a standard newborn gift pack – as much as you can buy at the Gap without being arrested. And a learning gift, a soft shape sorter. And then for [Grace] who is older, I got a tea set that she loves.”

On her relationship with Elisabeth these days: “We e-mail back and forth,” she said. “She seems good. She looks like she adopted, like she didn’t give birth. She looks perfectly fit and gorgeous already.”

What in the world is going on? Is our dear Rosie getting SOFT?

Rosie Gets Attacked by an Eagle

Rosie O’Donnell‘s character, Dawn Budge, is returning for a multi-episode arc in Nip/Tuck starting this week. Watch a video preview of one of her scenes below–Rosie gets attacked by an eagle!

“I think that I prefer this, you know, to doing a talk show and talking to other people about how much fun they had doing this,” Rosie has said. “This is a different thing. This is not about me, this is not ‘Rosie O’Donnell in . . .’ This, I’m a guest on an existing show that I think has tremendous artistic merit. And the fact that [creator Ryan Murphy], the artist, feels that the color that I create for him in Dawn Budge is something he can paint with — that’s an amazing feeling. Very different from ‘live studio audience!’ and ‘me, me, me!’ And, every time you move, being on Entertainment Tonight. The acting part, this whole thing is really fun. It’s kind of what you dreamed of when you’re a kid. Or, it is for me.”

Nip/Tuck episode “Dawn Budge II” airs on Tuesday, Nov. 20 @ 9PM ET/PT on FX.

Donald Trump to Rosie: Your Book is Boring!!!

Former talk show host Rosie O’Donnell signs copies of her autobiography Celebrity Detox: The Fame Game at Barnes and Noble book store (555 Fifth Avenue) on Tuesday in New York City. All net profits from the book will support her Rosie‘s Broadway Kids program.

When Donald Trump was asked about asked Rosie‘s new book, he told Extra that, “The book is boring and has no educational value. Rosie is very unkind to Barbara Walters who saved her dying career. She is a very disloyal person.”

The art of Rosie will also be on display at The Gallery at New World Stages starting today. The collection of art works is titled “Solace” and features paintings created during 2003-2005. The exhibition will run through Dec. 2. More Here! »

Rosie Passes on Oprah

Rosie O’Donnell turned down an opportunity to promote her book “Celebrity Detox” with Oprah, opting instead to be interviewed by Diane Sawyer. (The book slams Barbara Walters, Donald Trump and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.)

Says Rosie‘s rep to Page Six, “I’m sure Rosie will do Oprah‘s show another time.”

Rosie quickly turned to her blog to express her reasons why she turned down the big invitation from Oprah. Here’s her reasons why, explained on her official blog:

the book
was hard 2 write

things i could barely say aloud
alone in a room
made their way to the comp
thru the key board
or tape recorder

writing is
4 me
by far
the most revealing medium
2 work in

i do not feel ready
to discuss or defend
the things i shared
on those 209 pages

read it urself
take away what u need
leave the rest
it is what it is

the goal always is peace
self revelation
sharing – learning – teaching
wax on wax off

for now
i decided no interviews
about celebrity detox
it is too raw

my no
has nothing 2 do with anything
but me
my need 2 find my place

oprah is a force of nature
her invitation made me cry
her kind words about the book
reinforces what we all know
2 b true about her

although fueds seems 2 b all the rage
there isnt one
regardless of what u read
or see on fast food tv

with pure intent
comes pure result
we pray

off 2 b dawn budge
in the other holy land
peace out peeps
