Scoop! Everything isn’t Rosie for Hasselbeck

The complete mental breakdown of “The View” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck continues.

Hasselback seemed to come out of her shell after Star Jones Reynolds left the show a few months back. In fact, it wasn’t until Reynolds got the boot that Hasselback started speaking up, bringing a conservative point of view to the daytime chatfest.

Of course, it looked like “View” guru Barbara Walters wanted to shove her back into her shell after the former “Survivor” contestant’s tearful ranting and raving about the morning-after pill.

And now it appears that Hasselback isn’t handlingthe arrival of über-liberal co-host Rosie O’Donnell very well.

“She is crying every day,” an insider told the New York Daily News. “No one can control Rosie, and Elisabeth can’t contain her feelings. She gets so upset all the time.”

For her part, O’Donnell’s spokeswoman says that everything is hunky-dory.

“Elisabeth was at Rosie’s house this weekend with her daughter, Grace,” she said. “They might not agree on politics, but that’s what makes the show great. Ratings are up 59 percent.”

My Sharona — Not yours!

Apparently, the guys in The Knack don’t listen to a lot of hip-hop.

Twenty years after Run DMC’s hit “It’s Tricky,” the band responsible for putting that song “My Sharona” in your head is suing the rappers for copyright infringement for sampling their 1979 hit.

“That sound is not only the essence of ‘My Sharona,’ it is one of the most recognizable sounds in rock ’n’ roll,” Knack singer Doug Fieger modestly told Rolling Stone.

No one from Run DMC has responded to the allegations, but allow Scoop to speak for you: “You be illin’, The Knack.”

Recovery with Kate & Pete

Kate Moss and Pete Doherty just can’t control their busy hands.

The supermodel and the rocker-turned-professional junkie got overly frisky when Moss paid a visit to Doherty in the rehab clinic The Priory in London, where he is trying to kick his crack cocaine and heroin addictions.

The off-again, on-again couple took a nice stroll in the rehab’s garden when some kissing turned into, er, something more, all under the spying eyes of a group therapy session that also wanted to enjoy a nice evening the garden.

“They were kissing and groping each other,” an insider at the clinic told The Sun. “Hands were going up clothing and there was lots of groaning.”

Carters learn to share

If you noticed that tweeners seem depressed today, it’s because they heard that singer-actor Aaron Carter, 18, is engaged to Playboy Playmate Kari Ann Peniche, 22.

And if you think it’s kinda disturbing that the 18-year-old former “7th Heaven” star is marrying a Playboy bunny, wait — it gets better. Peniche first dated Aaron’s older brother, Backstreet Boy (and former Paris Hilton toy) Nick Carter.

That should make for some awkward family dinners.

Aaron proposed to Peniche on Saturday while they were onstage during the Playboy Comedy Tour at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

“I don’t remember it happening. It was such a blur,” Peniche told People magazine. “I had no idea he was going to do this, but I’m glad he did.”

We are glad he do, too, because it will make the Carter’s upcoming E! reality show, “House of Carters,” much more entertaining.
