David Letterman had to know what was coming when he made a joke during his Tuesday “Late Show” monologue about the rapid nature of Rosie O’Donnell‘s engagement to Michelle Rounds. We’re surprised he didn’t run for cover after making this joke: “The woman she is marrying, her fiancee, was driving… and her car broke down. And guess what happened? Rosie pulls up right behind her in her tow truck.”

Well, according to Extra and E! Online, Rosie didn’t hold back when she responded on “The Rosie Show,” taped earlier in the week at scheduled to air tonight. “”Why is that Dave? Why? I don’t remember making fun of you when you had sex with all your interns! I didn’t make fun of your rampant, throbbing heterosexuality, did I, Dave?” She then launched into a Letterman-esque “Top Five” list about why she won’t go on Dave’s show, even alluding to how his doctors took out his entire heart during his heart surgery in 2000.

Rosie has been on fire lately, as she went after one of her favorite targets, Donald Trump, on “The Joy Behar Show” last night, responding to the prospect of the Donald moderating debate by calling him “Lord Voldermort” and yet again flipping her hair over in her well-documented Trump impression. We were starting to forget how funny a ticked-off Rosie can be; maybe some more of this will keep her show on OWN from getting cancelled.
