Here’s 11-Year-Old Hayden Panettiere Singing Britney Hits In Pleather Pants

Before Hayden Panettiere started singing for a living on “Nashville,” she was an 11-year-old child actress who was apparently determined to show the world that acting wasn’t her only talent.

Face-Off: Rosie O’Donnell Vs. A Street Preacher

Back in March, Rosie O’Donnell was leaving the Super Bowl when she encountered a few Christian street preachers in the parking lot. They called her a “lesbian pig” who was “going to hell” and she should “go do the dishes.” Rather unoriginal and also I think Rosie probably has someone on staff who does her…

Chelsea Handler Talks About Her Abortion At Age 16

Chelsea Handler has never hidden the fact she became pregnant at age 16 and had an abortion.

Rosie O’Donnell Shills For The “Gaydar Gun”

Due to the increasingly universal embrace of men’s skincare and hair products, our gaydar has become super untrustworthy. It might be time to buy stock in the Gaydar Gun because once single women catch wind of this it will be flying off the shelves. Thanks for the help, Rosie!  [Think Progress]…

Rosie O’Donnell To Play Elizabeth Edwards?

I grew up in a liberal town in the very un-liberal state of North Carolina. In 1998, when John Edwards busted on the scene and took down Republican stalwart Lauch Faircloth, Edwards instantly became a local hero. For years, I thought he and his wife Elizabeth were the bee’s knees—a loving couple who’d had hard…

Quotable: Rosie O’Donnell Says The Haiti Telethon Should Have A Cover Charge

“I hope [there’s] not another telethon on the air, and if there is one, there should be a demand that every person who participates donates a minimum, because it was very infuriating to me after 9/11, to see millionaires asking the people in the country for their, you know, pennies … It’s like, if you’re…
