Donald Trump, Rosie O'Donnell Agree to Sit and Spin
By Matthew Congdon
NEW YORK - Just when there appeared to be no foreseeable let up in the Donald Trump-Rosie O'Donnell feuding frenzy, came a Christmas miracle shocker: the announcement that the terrible twosome would soon be staring in their own NBC sitcom.
Apparently the peacock network sees primetime magic in Donald's campaign to take some money out of "Rosie's fat-ass pockets"—and Nielsen gold in Rosie's mocking imitation of Trump's combover
According to NBC's press release: "Not since Sam and Diane, Lucy and Ricky, or Wilbur and Mr. Ed has there been so much chemistry on screen. It's like nuclear fission in your TV tube! We feel that the Trump-O'Donnell sparing and repartee make them the Nick and Nora Charles of today. Look for a smart, sophisticated, all-out laugh throwdown this spring when Rosie and Donald explode through your screen on Thursday nights."
The as yet unnamed vehicle will be centered around the classic "odd couple" premise as the two opposites find themselves forced together under circumstances beyond their control. He's a high-powered billionaire investor; she's a daytime talk show spitfire. When both are surprisingly given joint custody of a bevy of beautiful and rowdy pageant queens, there are a lot of lessons, laughter, and lingerie to be shared.
Says one top TV exec, "Think of it as Felix and Oscar teaching the Facts of Life."
And just how did the network get The Donald and The O'Donnell to declare a ceasefire?
Sources say that Barbara Walters was mostly responsible for the idea. Ms. Walters ran into Paris Hilton when they both showed up to post bail for Nicole Ritchie. The three got to talking about how the Hilton-Ritchie feud was a Simple Life boost, and Barbara had a clear 20/20 view to ratings treasure.
She spoke with each of the feuding stars, convincing Donald that with sales of Trump water waning, this was the perfect post-Apprentice vehicle. With Rosie, she simply mentioned the bathing beauty pageant queens. Within twenty-four hours, both were on board
Although the show is still without a confirmed title, word on the street is that NBC has rejected Butch Sassy and the Lawsuit Kid in favor of what is sure to be the catchphrase on everyone's lips come summer: Sit and Spin.
