After the controversial exchange of rants of The Apprentice’s Donald Trump and The View’s Rosie O’Donnell, another controversy surfaced the news. This time it involved a framed set of undergarments worn by O’Donnell in the 1994 movie Exit to Eden.
According to E! News, Trump got the girdle-like garment from a fan that purchased it at a charity auction and had it sent to the real estate tycoon. Trump explained to the New York Post, “I sent it to Barbara [Walters] to hang in her office because I didn’t want it in mine. It was funny, except that it was really gross. It’s disgusting. I feel sorry for [Rosie’s] wife. It can’t be pleasant.”
Trump, a 60-year old native of Queens, New York, presently works as the host and the executive producer of the reality program The Apprentice. Prior to The Apprentice, he was famed for his lavish lifestyle and his real estate success.
On Monday’s episode of The View, O’Donnell talked about Trump’s latest noise. She said, “You want to hear what a 61-year-old businessman did today? He sent Barbara …”
Walters interrupted O’Donnell and said, “This was sent for me, it was not sent to you … I really do not want to stir up the whole Donald Trump thing again.”
Furthermore, Walters asserted that she did not want to go down that road again. Walters said, “I am supportive of my friend and colleague Rosie but I have no desire to continue a feud with Donald Trump.”
The much-talked about feud started last December when O’Donnell ranted on Trump after he gave Tara Conner, Miss USA, a second chance when she was busted for underage drinking. She said at that time, “He annoys me on a multitude of levels. He’s the moral authority? Left the first wife, had an affair; left the second wife, had an affair; had kids both times, but he’s the moral compass for 20-year-olds in America?”
