Reputations, Rumors, Leaks and Feuding battles with Billionaires. How Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump make waves.
This a a close study of what has transpired over the career of Rosie O'Donnell, and what an ugly, successful, obese, lesbian, must do to keep in the publics spotlight. If the argument is that even George Clooney and Angelina Jolie must make waves to keep in the public spotlight on a regular basis, I would answer that you are correct.
Did you really think an A-lister could simply make movies, walk on a red carpet in a designer dress or suit and then simply drop off the planet, could keep her or his fame?
The reality is, they must constantly make waves to keep up with the publics interest. Thats why it's not good enough for Angelina and Madonna to adopt a child from the USA, and why a feud about weight, hair and how obnoxious is important to keeping on the A-list. When the person has no body of award winning proportions, they must crash their car to get attention (Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Countless others,) steal from a store (Winnona Ryder), get married, cheat, date, and ultimately they sometimes kill themselves to recieve eternal fame.
Returning to Rosie and her career:
Rosie did not start out as an outspoken voice, but rather an obnoxious and funny comedian. Getting a break in a Madonna movie about a women's baseball league, helped Rosie showcase her butch, tomboy style.
Then came the TV show and magazine takeover. Then she came out. (She might have done things on Broadway, but I don't follow it) Then another break occured when she had a soapbox TV Talk show to host and voice her opinion.
Like an athlete up for contract negotion or trade, she really came through with high ratings for THE VIEW. She proved her worth.

Donald Trump also profitted from the scripted feud between the two of them over his Miss USA beauty contest.
Until Rosie and her outspoken feuds, we only knew of Oprah and her opinions on things like BEEF. Rosie O'Donnell has a soft side as well, and a caring reputation with her adopted children, her philanthropy, and her love of animals. By appearing on a daily blog, out of make-up, she appears human. She seems honest and real.
What have we learned from this?:
- Giving obnoxious and outspoken people network exposure will increase viewers.
- Staging feuds (publicity stunts) with icons, benefit both parties.
- It does not matter what you look like or your sexual preferences.
- Video Blogs will increase viewership, while only allowing one sided statements.
- Diet pills and weight loss are not required for fame.
- Like American Idol, if its a big feuding story, every network will cover it.
