Well, that didn’t take long! Rosie O’Donnell has already replied to the suggestive comments Barbara Walters made on “The View” this morning in a hilarious video on her blog.

Here’s the back story: On Wednesday, O’Donnell told reporters that her former co-host on “The View,” Barbara Walters, “wanted everyone to believe and think and act as if [the women on ‘The View’] get along and are really good friends and happy and hang out together, and, you know, that’s just not the reality.’

Then, this morning, on “The View,” Walters responded, saying, “There are some people who have done this show and then for years feel like they have to dump on it, maybe for their own publicity. And that not only hurts me, but I resent it, so if the shoe fits, lady, get on, ladies, get on with your lives. We are not perfect, we are not always happy, but we’re pretty good.”

Instead of responding in her usual cryptic haiku form, O’Donnell got all multimedia on us, making a video of herself innocently watching “The View” this morning. It’s a must watch.


Get comfy, folks. This feud is just getting warmed up.
