MAG: Rosie O’Donnell & Oprah at “War”

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes


“ROSIE & OPRAH: IT’S WAR” blares a headline from In Touch, which claims Rosie O’Donnell and Oprah Winfrey are butting heads over O’Donnell’s talk show on Winfrey’s network OWN.

According to a supposed “insider” for the tabloid, the former rivals are bickering about “everything from production details to guests.”

“Rosie isn’t used to having someone tell her what to do, but Oprah isn’t about to give up control,” explains the “source.”

Things supposedly got so heated between the talk show queens that Winfrey “hung up on Rosie after one tense conversation!”

No, she didn’t.

None of this ever happened.

O’Donnell and Winfrey are NOT feuding.

A rep for O’Donnell tells Gossip Cop the mag’s story is “absolutely absurd,” and calls it a “classic tabloid story made up about two women who are collaborating together and NOT pitted against one another.”

And an OWN spokesperson similarly notes In Touch‘s tale is “absolutely untrue.”
