Rosie Still Says Hideously Stupid Things


There are people in life that don’t have the wherewithal to just shut the fuck up. You know these people. They were the ones doing kegstands while everyone else was packing up the party. Every once in a great while one of these abrasive personalities slips through the cracks and makes it big, where they then have a forum to chime in with the power of the media behind them.

Well, here is enough to make me beg that The Price is Right doesn’t go Rosie.

At the Cyndi Lauper True Colors tour:

“I got to tell you, I’ve been hanging around with those heteros for a full year and it’s not fun,” she said. “Turn around one minute and they’ll stab you in the back with a high heel. They will.”

What the hell? If I said “I’ve been hanging around with these homos for a year and it’s sucked,” how would that go for me? It would go poorly, because it is very very stupid. Now, they may in fact be back stabbers (BwaBwa in particular would eat your children to get an interview) but categorizing them as “heteros” has nothing to do with anything. It’s brushing all “heteros” with the same broad stroke which is the one thing everyone who’s ever been discriminated against hates. Also, I’ve heard the Hasselbeck chick goes both ways.

  • the stupidity goes both ways – didn’t barbara walters say it’s nice that rosie is gone since they can talk about heterosexual sex now?

  • first of all, she was doing a comedy show, it’s not like she said this crap in an interview, it was jokes, people, J-O-K-E-S. secondly, Rosie has a special place in my heart for having the balls to speak out on national television about World Trade Center 7, the THIRD building to collapse on 9/11, only this building was NOT hit by a plane, and oh coinky-dinky, housed investigation documents from the ENRON scandal and 5000 other corporations that were being investigated. hmm.

  • straight people may find that comment stupid but this was a comment made at a gay oriented event. straight comics have made comments like this for years and they are considered funny i think they are funny… as is the rosie comment when taking in context

  • My problem with this is not that she’s making broad generalizations about heterosexuals, it’s that it’s just not funny.

    And, frankly, I’ve known a gay man or two who will stab you in the back with his high heel just as quickly as Barbara Walters will.

  • A little Rosie-bashing?

    This isn’t a smack at heteros in general, but rather one aimed at three women with whom Rosie has recently worked, yes?

    You go on with your loud-mouthed self, Rosie.

  • Strange this post is totaly unrelated to what I was searching google for, but it was listed on the first page. I guess your doing something right if Google likes you enough to put you on the first page of a non related search. :)

  • I have been just reading through your site it’s very well crafted, My organization is searching on the net searching for just how to start this weblog thing and your website happens to be quite professional.
