LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Is one of Hollywood’s longstanding celebrity feuds finally ending?
Donald Trump’s appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on Monday with the entire Trump clan may have helped cool off his ongoing war of words with Rosie O’Donnell.
A Rosie fan posted a question on her blog, asking, “Rosie, did you see Oprah today with the Trump family.”
“i did,” Rosie, who is slated to have a show on Oprah’s OWN, wrote. “and found him likable”
The Rosie/Trump feud ignited in 2006 when she called the business mogul a “snake-oil salesman” while she was co-hosting “The View” after he announced that he would not fire troubled Miss USA Tara Conner.
The feud continued in the press for years, but in recent months appears to have simmered.
In April 2010, Rosie revealed to Access Hollywood’s Tony Potts that she actually had never met her perceived nemesis.
“I’ve never spoken to the man in my life,” she said at the time. “I don’t know the guy. I don’t hang out in the circle of Donald Trump. It’s not like I see him at Sizzler, at the mall, on the weekend.”
