Hogan And O'donnell In Public Feud
Former wrestling star HULK HOGAN has ignited a war of words with actress/talk show host ROSIE O'DONNELL - calling on her to "shut her big mouth". Hogan was promoting new show American Gladiators at a press conference on Thursday (13Dec07) when he was asked which celebrity he would most like to see challenged by the series' muscle-bound competitors. He told reporters, "Without a doubt Rosie O'Donnell. Somebody needs to shut that big mouth up." O'Donnell, however, was quick to respond on her blog, writing, "Hulk Hogan, the wrestler guy, wants to pummel me. Isn't that sweet, and wildly odd." She then likened the star's vendetta to that of U.S. property mogul Donald Trump, with whom she had a public feud earlier this year (07): "It's like a gang of gross guys, a club almost, old, dumb, white and on TV."
