CLAIM: Rosie O’Donnell and Oprah Have “OWN Rift”

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes


“Uh-O: Rosie and Oprah Have Their Very OWN Rift,” reads the headline of a piece on PopEater.

The site claims “Oprah and Rosie have not been seeing eye to eye” on a number of things involving O’Donnell‘s new show on OWN.

According to a source for the site, “The two are disagreeing over staff… Oprah wants Rosie to use an executive producer that she knows and trusts while Rosie insists she be able to pick her own, fearing whoever Oprah picks will be a spy.”

PopEater’s source adds, “It’s a bad way to start off, considering they haven’t even taped a single show yet.”

However, there is no “rift.”

A spokesperson for the network assures Gossip Cop that the PopEater piece is “totally untrue.” And O’Donnell herself now tweeted, “read I was feuding with o – not true.”
