Afternoon Delight: Rosie bans Piers from appearing on her show, what Fiona Shaw’s brain looks like on poetry

Happy birthday to Tegan and Sara Quin! The musical sisters turn 31 today. What are the odds that these twins would share the same birthday?

Rosie O’Donnell’s new talk show hasn’t even aired yet and she’s already banning guests. O’Donnell has forbidden CNN’s Piers Morgan from appearing on The Rosie Show, since he banned O’Donnell’s friend and former A League of her Own co-star Madonna from his.

In an interview with Access Hollywood, O’Donnell said, “Yes I’ve banned Piers Morgan. He banned Madonna for no reason when his show started, so I’m banning Piers Morgan! I don’t have anybody banned, but if I have to make a list, he’s on it.” Proving once and for all that a lesbian can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

Conclusion: the actor’s brain is complex — like everyone else’s.
