Donald Trump Wants to Milk Rosie O'Donnell Spat for "The Apprentice"
Donald Trump wants to milk Rosie O'Donnell for some more publicity and would welcome the loud mouthed shock jock for the next version of his back from the dead show "The Apprentice." NBC is inviting celebrities for the next installment of the show and who better to bicker with The Donald than his nemesis Rosie?
"It would be great to have Rosie on "The Apprentice," network suit Ben Silverman said at a morning Television Critics Association news conference. "Donald personally told me to extend an invitation to her." It sounds like train wreck television and a boat load of fun but Rosie wants no part of it. "It will never happen in this lifetime or beyond," said Cindi Berger, O'Donnell's spokeswoman.
No one can blame Rosie. She is fresh off a verbal beat down from her co-host and intellectual lightweight Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Donald and Rosie, of course, have history, Rosie having nicked Donald when she was on "The View" for giving then-Miss USA, an underage drinker, a second chance. (The Donald co-owns the pageant with NBC.)
Donald returned the compliment, calling Rosie " fat," "a bully," "not smart," "crude," "disgusting," "a slob," "an animal" and a "big fat pig." I think there was more but it was hard to keep up. It got pretty tiring as Rosie and Trump never faced off, they only took pot shots from afar on different shows.
