‘Rosie O’Donnell Show’ Being Revived For A One Night Charity Special

Published

on

Koosh balls beware, the former daytime darling is reviving her talk show for a one-night charity special.

There was nothing better than catching a cold in the late nineties because it meant staying home from school and watching The Rosie O’Donnell Show, which was arguably one of the greatest talk shows ever. There were funny monologues, entertaining guests, koosh balls being thrown about and perhaps the most exciting element to the show was the countless broadway performances. Broadway shows were not highlighted much on talk shows at the time because the performances were thought to be too lengthy. Well, Rosie O’Donnell has always loved Broadway (she has even been on Broadway numerous times) and so she was sure to place a bright spotlight on the genre when she got her own show.

The Rosie O’Donnell Show ran successfully for six seasons from 1996-2002. Amid the unprecedented coronavirus chaos O’Donnell has chosen to revive the show for a one night special to raise money for the Actors Fund. The special is being produced in conjunction with Broadway.com and is hoping to raise funds for the entertainment community that has been hit so hard by the nationwide shutdowns. Of the revival O’Donnell said:

“Everybody who knows me knows that Broadway has been one of the brightest lights in my life since the time I was a little girl. It has also been the lifeblood of New York City for generation after generation. After all, Broadway has given to the world, now – in this time of tremendous need – it’s our turn to give something back. Because social distancing is so important right now, this amazing benefit is an incredible show of support to lift spirits, bring us all together virtually and help The Actors Fund help those in need.”

Since you can’t really produce a show with ten or less people (the newly declared crowd maximum according to the government), O’Donnell will embrace technology and conduct all of the interviews from the safe distance of her home. Who might she be interviewing? Well, it’s quite the lineup actually. Sarah Jessica Parker, Darren Criss, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, David Foster, Morgan Freeman, Neil Patrick Harris, Barry Manilow, Audra McDonald, Katharine McPhee, Idina Menzel, Ben Platt, Billy Porter, Miranda Sings, Jordin Sparks, Ben Vereen, Skylar Astin, Beth Behrs, Matthew Broderick, Tituss Burgess and Kristin Chenoweth, among many other big Broadway names are expected to appear.

The truly special revival of The Rosie O’Donnell Show will stream live on Sunday, March 22 at 7 p.m. ET, 4 p.m. PT on Broadway.com and YouTube.

Political (?) Jab At Karlie Kloss During Project Runway Goes Viral

Published

on

Let’s be honest – a moment from Project Runway hasn’t gone viral in a looooong time. But when Project Runway contestant Tyler Neasloney received criticism for his design, his jab about host Karlie Kloss’ in-laws – the Kushners – raised eyebrows and blew up the internet.

Judge Brandon Maxwell was delivering some tough talk about the outfit he presented, saying “I cannot see Karlie wearing it anywhere, honestly.”

Neasloney paused and said, “Not even to dinner with the Kushners?”

A stunned Kloss gaped. Neasloney added, “That’s your husband!” (Video below)

Neasloney was eliminated a short time later. Hard to say the real rationale behind it – the outfit or the jab.

“Is this the most startling runway moment ever? Maaaaaaybe.” NPR’s Linda Holmes wrote on Twitter in response to a viral moment from Thursday night’s #ProjectRunway which saw one contestant take a jab at host Karlie Kloss. The moment happened late in the episode, where contestants were tasked with creating a garment for Kloss to wear to a CFDA event in Paris. “I cannot see Karlie wearing it anywhere, honestly,” judge Brandon Maxwell told contestant Tyler Neasloney. Not missing a beat, @deartyler shot back: “Not even to dinner with the Kushners?” he slyly remarked, making reference to Kloss’s husband Joshua Kushner, brother of Jared Kushner. “That’s your husband,” Neasloney offered after a long silence. “Uh… I was going to Paris. That was your challenge here,” Kloss responded, clearly flummoxed. “Keep it to the challenge.”
