'The Rosie Show' Premieres With Russell Brand's Nude Protest (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 11th 2011 12:00AM
Russell Brand, 'The Rosie Show'Rosie O'Donnell is back and in prime time with her new live venture. 'The Rosie Show' (Mon., 7PM ET on OWN) welcomed comedian Russell Brand, who has recently been outed as Rosie's latest "crush."

He talked about his nude protest against capitalism that didn't work as well as he might have hoped. Brand wound up getting arrested for indecent exposure, which he also took issue with.

"It was actually just a very classical nude form on what I'd like to say was a very cold day," he said.

Final tally for Brand's protest? "Capitalism succeeded, my naked body failed."

O'Donnell is hoping to succeed on OWN in a way the network hasn't really been able to since its premiere. She was much closer to the "Queen of Nice" persona that catapulted her status back in the days of 'The Rosie O'Donnell Show.'

Quick and witty, the live format seemed to work well for O'Donnell and her guests. There's always an element of anticipation when things are happening live. Can 'Rosie' bring new life to OWN?

Why anyone would watch "Rosie" is beyond me. I have never seen any redeeming qualities. Perhaps when she was a baby, her Mother loved her. Sure makes me question Oprah's judgement. ???

Sooooo Oprah is so desperate that she not only hired but “needs” Rosie to try and get her show attention – Since her fleeing viewers are of the “out of sight out of mind” running to other programs.
The Anderson show that took her time slot is so much more real and viewers truly see that. Guess Oprah now knows how Jay Leno felt (remember when she tried to downcast him when she did the interview with him) But Jay came back and thank goodness the net work figured it out “if it an’t broken leave it alone !!” That will not be the case for Oprah – no going back.

I seriously doubt that she has a crush on Russell Brand. Her tastes usually run to the same sex. But if that was remotely true, she should give in to her hetro longings and do him. She'd probably be more relaxed and less bitchy. Then she could claim to be Bi, rather than lesbian,ando she wouldn't have betrayed the GLBT community.

Russell Brand is so gross. He always looks like he needs a shower and a shave. Can't stand the guy. He's such a "fem".

Rosey O'Donnell...you're a pig, have always been a pig, always will be a pig. You give lesbians a bad name, and I'm not even a lesbian. Crawl back under your rock, it was nice while you were away.

rosie is just a loud mouth who ambushes her guest. Even Tom Cruise. I don't care much about him but what she did was awful. She's just a pig and luckily I don't have to watch her. If no one did, she would soon be gone.
