Rosie O’Donnell has confirmed reports that she’s engaged to 33-year-old police officer Elizabeth Rooney after a year of dating. “She’s very much an equal, she’s very much her own person and loves what she does. She’s a pretty unbelievable young woman,” O’Donnell told People on Monday. The 56-year-old comedian also noted, “I keep telling her I’m too old for her. But she doesn’t seem to care. She’s like, ‘I was in the Army! I put my life on the line every day, you think I don’t know who I want to date?’ I’m like, ‘Alright I guess that’s true.’ She has a lot of good points.”
During a radio interview on Monday, Sarah Silverman revealed that Louis C.K. sought–and received–her permission to masturbate in front of her back before either of them were famous. “When we were kids, and he asked if he could masturbate in front of me, sometimes I’d go, ‘F**k yeah, I want to see that!,'” she said. “It’s not analogous to the other women that are talking about what he did to them. He could offer me nothing. We were only just friends. So sometimes, yeah, I wanted to see it–it was amazing. Sometimes I would say, ‘F**king no, gross,’ and we got pizza.” Silverman then added, “I’m not saying what he did was okay. I’m just saying at a certain point, when he became…influential in the world of comedy, it changes. He felt like he was the same person, but the dynamic was different and it was not okay. I’m not saying everyone should embrace Louis again. I believe he has remorse. I just want him to talk about it on stage. He’s going to have to find his way or not find his way.”

Ariana’s forehead looks huge as hell in that picture.” Another wrote, “Ariana’s forehead ended my career.” Ariana clearly reads the comments because she soon clapped back writign, “Also I see some of y’all making fun of my forehead! Sorry I have a big forehead! At least I’m cute and don’t make fun of other people’s foreheads! Suck my d**k. TTYL,” then she deleted it a few seconds later.
While all this is going on, Ariana also revealed that she is finalizing details about the Sweetener Tour. She says her heart needs to perform.
Sometimes we learn interesting things on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook show, “Red Table Talk”. Yesterday, for example, we learned that before she hooked up with Will Smith, she dated…or went on a date with his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air co-star, Alfonso Ribeiro.
