Barbara Walters Tells Off Donald Trump

By Renee Ghert-Zand

Barbara Walters looked straight into the camera while filming a recent episode of “The View” (that is, once she figured out which camera to look at) and plain out told her old friend Donald Trump that he is being “a fool.” If that wasn’t clear enough, she admonished the tycoon and reality TV star with, “Stop it! Get off it!” in regard to the birther conspiracy theory accusations Trump continues to level at President Obama.

Adam Sandler is apparently big in Romania. Well, at the very least his animated feature, “Hotel Transylvania” has been well received there. Sandler didn’t make it over to Transylvania for the film’s premiere there, but director Genndy Tartakovsky did. Next up for Sandler is a Western titled, “Ridiculous 6.”

Drew Barrymore and hubby Will Kopelman made their first public appearance since their baby daughter Olive was born at the LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala presented by Gucci on Saturday. The couple was photographed showing off pics on an iPhone to friends Jennifer Aniston and her fiancé Justin Theroux. Judging from the adoring looks, we think it’s safe to bet they were the latest photos of little Olive.

Ivanka Trump, Jewish Mother

She’s certainly not your typical Jewish mother, but she’s a Jewish mother no less.

Ivanka Trump — Donald’s daughter, ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ judge and jewelry designer — and her husband, New York Observer owner Jared Kushner, welcomed a baby girl on Sunday. Trump took to Twitter on Monday to announce the baby’s name: “Jared and I are having so much fun playing with our daughter! Arabella Rose is beyond adorable. She’s truly a blessing.”

Trump converted to Judaism before her October 2009 nuptials to Kushner.

While she was pregnant, Trump addressed the fact that their baby would be born with a silver spoon in her mouth. “We have our work cut out for us to ensure that our daughter is grounded and not spoiled,” she said.

To that we say, good luck! (Oh, and Mazel Tov!)
