December 28, 2006 -- THE holiday cease-fire between Rosie O'Donnell and Donald Trump ended with new bombs dropped yesterday.

O'Donnell, who'd been quiet since her nasty spat began with Trump last week, called him "the comb over" on her blog yesterday - and suggested he was acting like a "pimp" for Miss USA, Tara Conner.

"a young girl in nyc," O'Donnell wrote in a poetic, no-punctuation style she uses on her website.

"meets a pimp
he cons her into a life of illusion
she works for him
no fun - no f---g - no life
she is owned
when she sneaks out on her own
to party the night away
he freaks
he roughs her up a bit
shames her in front of the others
teaches her to behave
for his own benefit"

"The View" is in repeats this week and Rosie was not immediately available to comment.

The timing of the posting was curious, coming days after Trump's last blast at O'Donnell last Thursday night on "Larry King Live."

The celebrity feud - one of the most bitter in recent memory - was in danger of going away until now.

"Rosie got mentally beaten up by me," Trump told The Post yesterday, "because she's a mental midget, a low-life.

"I think she's got a death wish."

The feud began last week on "The View" when O'Donnell accused Trump of being a "snake-oil salesman" for the way he handled the hard-partying Miss USA affair.

After Trump responded with blasts of his own, calling her a "fat slob" and an "animal" on several TV shows, Rosie chose not to respond.

Instead, she simply made a face on "The View" the following day.

Barbara Walters, creator and co-owner of "The View," has pointedly not taken sides in the battle, saying both Trump and O'Donnell are friends.

The Post's Cindy Adams has even reported that Walters tried to patch up the fuss with some e-mails.

Evidently, her peace efforts did not work.

"It's too bad a degenerate is able to get away with things like that," Trump said yester- day. "I met Tara the night of the pageant and didn't see her again until she got into trou ble."

On her blog, Rosie wrote:

"so what happens
when u say the emperor
has no clothes
the comb over goes ballistic
via phone to Mr. King"
"i imagine it is interesting
as celeb feuds tend 2b
so here r my thoughts . . .
"beauty pageants where women were paraded around
judged valuable or not
by old white men.
it is always old white men."
