Donald Trump may be known for his wheeling and dealing but he couldn't make the sale for Rosie O’Donnell.
Although O'Donnell announced recently that she was set to stay at the Trump International Hotel and Tower Chicago as she tapes her new show on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, the 49-year-old has since reconsidered.
"She is not going to be living or renting a Donald Trump apartment and is still looking at real estate options," a rep for O'Donnell told the Advocate earlier this week.
As Huffington Post blogger and AfterEllen.com managing editor Trish Bendix points out, O'Donnell is a well-known advocate for marriage equality, while Trump has been vocal about the fact that he is not.
Trump, who has been dancing around a potential presidential run, told Fox News in February, "I am not in favor of gay marriage. I live in New York. New York is a place with lots of gays, and I think it's great, but I'm not in favor of gay marriage."
He made similar remarks in an interview with the Des Moines Register & Tribune Co. Speaking on the issue of whether gay couples should be able to access the same benefits as married couples, he said, “As of this moment, I would say... no.”
Trump's statements have gotten a few celebs up in arms as of late, including legendary performer Cher.
She recently tweeted, "Donald Trump is a Pompous A–hole! Saw him in Aspen with one Dcup chick after another. Everyone up there thought he was a complete idiot."
Then Cher stated, "DT is disrespectful bully who'd step over his Own Body 2 get on tv & Spew his special brand of venom! no morals just bottom lines."
Good article, thank you! Can you explain the first paragraph in more detail?
I sure could go for a big black d!ck in my mouth.

Oh say can you see......? See we are the US and cannot be held down? Bye osama! Good riddance!
Rosie O'fat is obese and a loser. Its amazing how someone like that can make a living by just being fat. Go eat a 20 piece McNugget, loser

This is a little off topic but I have male enhancement drugs for half price. Call 6026213688 for orders and info.
@ Vixen. Get with the program please. Rosie is a fat pig and has no purpose on this earth.
@madhater.. I know Your comment was meant to be joking and not serious. Enjoy your night :)
A baby together..lol. Jeezes it would look like one of the freaks on the wrong turn movies. His hair and her ..hmmm...just plain ugly, loud mouth, fat, annoying, etc, etc..azz. Ugh!! This thing (Rosie) is ugly inside and out. Thanks for the laugh anyway Madhater :)
They should have a baby together.
Rosie should move in with Donald...they deserve each other. Both will do/say anything to get in the media and we are foolish enough to read it and then comment on it. Shame on us for feeding their insecurities.
So CNN removed my comment. Well I still think Rosie should stay there and then throw her fat lezb0 azz off the building and Trump should follow after.
i think women that look like rosie are hot. i luv big fat loud mouth women
@Punk w no name..lmao at your panty sniffer comment.
Rosie is a big pink walrus of a rug-muncher with an irritating voice.
I like Rosie. Why are so many people against her? I think you are all jealous of her looks and fame. I think she is beautiful.
Don't like Trump. Just hate Rosie even more. Don't know what's worse: looking at her or hearing that loud Bronx accent.
Cher is absolutely correct. Glad Rosie will be putting her money elsewhere. Donald Trump is the biggest carnival barker joke to walk on two legs in the last 200 years.
@mike128: better than being a used-panty sniffer like you! Shame! Stealin' panties from your sister's hamper! Perv!
wow. the commenters on this blog are truly mean-spirited. is this really what gets you guys off? pathetic.
Why did she book there in the first place! She's a sell-out.
Rosie Odonnell is nothing but a big mouth/butch/lesbian. She cant talk about anything unless it has to do with being gay. Cant stand her! Donald Trumps only redeeming quality is he is a self made millionaire. But the 2 of them on Celebrity Apprentice would be comical.
You're a bit behind the times rock n roller. "Self-made millionaire"? He's a self-made billionaire. Step out of the 70s dude.
Greasy Latinos Buying Tacos? Guys from the Bronx who Lick Te$ticles?
Gaga Loving Biker Tr@n$exuals?
What is GLBT? G@ys who Love to Blow Truckers? Girls too Large & Butt-ugly To get a man?
Kudos to Rosie. Trump doesn't deserve any money from the GLBT community. He thinks it is a simple political decision that doesn't have personal ramifications. Let's show him the ramifications bigotry has. His empire is just on the brink of bankruptcy again. Let it be the GLBT and others he has slighted by his own paricualar brand of animus to be the people to help push it over the edge
hey. I am the fake Beautiful VIxen. Not You ! She is super nice and only post nice stuff. Not mean stuff like that posted above. I was just drunk and a creep. plus i am sorry.
and dude we just wanna say... Trump'll never get elected with that hair! Looks like a wombat got caught in a carwash and then curled up on his head & died. Bogus!
Dudes, we think you shut put Trump and Rosie together in a room and see who blows a blood vessel from yelling first! or maybe a REAL Celebrity Death Match instead of Claymation. We'%e just sayin'
Like i said the baby boomers are the ones that fu**ed up this country! Greedy old a$z baby boomers! I can't sleep at night because the gas prices are too damn high!!!!!!!!!
You dont even know what a baby-boomer is but you bend over and Uncle Fudge will be the only thing on your mind.
Hey Rosie.. you dont need to yell to prove you want to be a man..we can tell by jist looking at you. Settle down!
They are a match made in heaven. Maybe if Rosie stopped all that damn yelling people may take her more seriously. And yes Donald time for a new do w/new color!
@Danceland: Yea you should talk. You are a moron just for commenting. In this case, you should be crowned the kin/queen of morons.
Here in Miami Beach we LOVE Rosie, she accurately portrayed and described the true Donald Trump- a charlatan and a complete phony!
just go away the don(ald) and go back to queens...
I am amazed Rosie would even be welcome at Trump's after the feud they had going a few years ago. Or was that Tom Selleck... or was that... Rosie doesn't seem to be able to get along with many people at all. So her not paying money to stay in his hotel sounds like a win win situation for both of them.
However with that said, what WOULD be a ratings bonanza for Trump, as well as a huge career move for Rosie in terms of getting her name i.d. up, would be for her to go on next year's Celebrity Apprentice. It would never happen, but I think it could be hilarious.
Well said Rita!
Im sure Trump nor any one else cares what Rosie does or says shes a nobody
Haha. Do you always take time to read articles about nobody's and then commenton them? Hahaha....moron(and, yes, I love to read what morons say). Thanks for making me laugh.
Wow Betty...or should I call you "Pot?" What makes Rosie a "nobody," and are you also a "nobody?" I suspect you felt really good typing that about Rosie, all while being oblivious (that means "unaware, not knowing") that you were showcasing your lack of intelligence. How is she a "nobody" when you're reading a news story about her and commenting on it? No, she's not "somebody" just because she's rich/famous, but you're the problem with the world and I'm sure you're clearly Trump or one of his supporters. They're the ones that practice the whole "if you don't agree with us, than you don't matter" movement!
I wouldn't stay anywhere either with the Donald's name on it....he's tacky and his taste borders on the pretend I'm royalty...sorry, but after his fiasco all week of orange skin, yellow hair, ego maniac rants about nothing, I wouldn't support him as a man of true substance, and I want him to release his tax returns as well as all of his bankruptcy statements....and didn't he flunk out of college???? People who live in glass houses, shouldn't throw stones as they will come back at you.,
And his hair is repulsive!!! Gag.
i mean DUMBA$$?
she is notoriously anti-gun, yet did a huge ad campaign with K-mart for one of their clothing lines. yet, at the time K-mart (not Wal-mart) was the largest seller of guns inthe US! want more proof she's a dumbaKK?
her face still looks like a large pizza with a couple of chicklets... .
1. Rosie's so stupid she didn't know who owns Trump International Etc.? 2. Who could tell Cher was mad? Her face never changes!
3. Rosie hasn't made any noise for a while. I guess it was too good to last.
Oh!come on wen wld u guys stop behaving like uncivilised adults?
Who could sleep with all Rosie's bi-polar rantings anyway?! She's doing the place a favor.
My mommy loves me as a fat bloated sorry excuse for a man. Im Chaz, IM HERE AND IM KWEER.
Oh please, if the floors can hold up Trump's massive ego then they are more than strong enough for Rosie.
Rosie is a nitwit. She defends a d bag woman abusing loser like Chris Brown.... but won't stay in a hotel owned by someone with a different opinion??
I heard that the REAL STORY is that the Donald BANNED this pig from any of his properties... not enough ding-dongs & twinkies for her to consume onsite. lol.
