Scoop! Barbara has no love for Rosie’s blog

Barbara Walters is a little worried about Rosie O’Donnell’s blog.

O’Donnell, who joins Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Behar and Walters on “The View” today, is a regular blogger, who doesn’t hold back her opinions on everything from politics to the behind-the-scenes details of “The View.”

In fact, when the new “View” promos came out, O’Donnell voiced her dislike for them, writing, “I saw the new ‘View’ promos,” O’Donnell wrote on her Web site. “Found myself/ in the position/ I loathe the most/ powerless.”

Walters might be concerned that she’s got another Star Jones-Reynolds on her hands.

“I didn’t like the blog,” Walters told Newsweek. “I’m counting on Rosie’s intelligence and sensitivity and humor. This is, after all, an entertainment show. It is based on people who like each other and are having a good time, not on people who are arguing and unhappy.”

Walters did say that after her anti-promo blog entry, O’Donnell sent Walters flowers with a card that read, “Barbara, I only want the promos and the show to be great. And I love you. Love, Ro.”

Don’t joke with Jude

Jude Law has no sense of humor about himself.

The actor is finally talking about Chris Rock’s jokes about him during the 2005 Academy Awards.

In case you forgot, in his opening monologue, the comedian joked, “Who is Jude Law? Why’s he in every movie I have seen for the last four years? He’s in everything. Even the movies he’s not in, if you look at the credits, he made cupcakes or something.”

Funny, right?

Well, not to Mr. I Slept With The Nanny.

“At first, I laughed because I didn’t think he knew who I was,” Law told The Daily Mirror. “Then I got angry as his remarks became personal. … It’s unfortunate I had five or six films come out at the same time.”

It was more unfortunate for us, because those films included “Alfie,” “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow,” “I Heart Huckabees” and “Cold Mountain.”

So, why is Law talking about something that happened a year and half ago? Well, because his new movie, “All the King’s Men,” is coming out on Sept. 22, of course.

Everything must go

While a normal person might host a garage sale to clear out unwanted items, singer-actress Christina Milian has decided to put some of her stuff, including racy stage outfits, on eBay, with the proceeds going to charity.

Milian, who earlier this year broke up with Nick Cannon after his repeated infidelities, still lives with her mom in Hollywood and has no plans to move out any time soon.

“I’ve got plenty of time to be in a house by myself one day or be with a husband and all that kind of loving stuff,” Milian said, according to Life & Style Extra.

‘Shanghai Noon’ won’t get you an Oscar

Owen Wilson is admitting what most of us who saw “I Spy” already know: He is not an Oscar-caliber actor.

“Am I looking for my ‘Rain Man’ role? No. I’m not that kind of actor. I don’t know that I have that desire in me, I don’t really see myself as that kind of actor where I would disappear into a character,” Wilson told BANG Showbiz. “Don’t forget, I’m not a trained actor so I don’t know if that’s even a possibility but I could try. I could at least try a movie that wouldn’t be full of big laughs.”

Of course, Wilson may be selling himself short. The five people who saw “The Minus Man,” in which Wilson played a serial killer, know that he’s got it in him to make us all forget “You, Me and Dupree.”

On Sunday, California bore the brunt of what meteorologists referred to as a bomb cyclone and an atmospheric river, a convergence of storms that brought more than half a foot of rain to parts of the Bay Area, along with high winds, concerns about flash floods and the potential for heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada. Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
