Trump vs. Rosie, again

At Thursday night’s Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner in New York, Donald Trump dragged Rosie O’Donnell back into the election, according to Yahoo! Celebrity. “I called Hillary a nasty woman. But this stuff is all relative,” the 70-year-old Republican presidential candidate said. “After listening to Hillary rattle on, and on, and on, I don’t think so badly of Rosie O’Donnell. In fact, I’m actually starting to like Rosie a lot.” In response, O’Donnell, 54, called Trump “an orange —,” employing an anatomical term unfit for family newspapers.

Jay Z disses Kanye

Despite looking like best buds years ago when they toured their blockbuster 2011 album, “Watch the Throne,” Jay Z, 46, apparently can’t stand “nut job” rapper Kanye West. And the feeling appears to be mutual. West, 39, apparently was ticked that he didn’t get more sympathy from Jay Z after his wife, Kim Kardashian, 36, was robbed at gunpoint in Paris in early October. “Don’t call me after the robbery and say, ‘How you feelin’?’ You wanna know how I’m feelin’? Come by the house,” West said Wednesday during a performance at Seattle’s KeyArena, according to Page 6. “Bring the kids by the house like we brothers — our kids ain’t never even played together.” An unidentified source told the gossip sheet that Jay Z only put up with West for the 2011 tour because “there was so much money to be made.”

Son buys Princess Grace’s childhood home

Prince Albert of Monaco is the proud owner of a handsome, red-brick, Federal-style home in Philadelphia — the very house his mother, Hollywood starlet-turned-royal, Princess Grace, grew up in. “It feels good,” the 58-year-old reigning monarch told People. “I’m very happy to have saved this old family home from a near certain death or development.” Albert added that he was thinking part of the house might be devoted to museum exhibition space, while his foundation might occupy the rest.
