If there’s one thing I don’t like, it’s when people deliberately air their dirty laundry in public, especially about their family. Some things are just meant to be private and let’s face it, no one has a perfect life (no matter how hard they try to convince you otherwise on Facebook).
Rosie O’Donnell hasn’t had the best year (with the death of her father and the back-and-forth nastiness between her and Donald Trump), but things have unfortunately gotten worse for her after her daughter Chelsea did an interview about her mother with some very shocking claims.
In the tell-all, Chelsea, 18, revealed that her famous mother regularly “smokes weed,” is a “phony” who is only nice in public, and hired nannies to raise her before sending her off to boarding school at age 13. Here are a few other things she’s said:
She went to live with her boyfriend after Rosie kicked her out two weeks before her 18th birthday
She claims her mom is a 'phony' who is a totally different person inside their family home than she is in the public eye
Rosie wears tight Spandex shorts and T-shirts around house and likes to sleep late - only doing her make-up if someone else does it for her
Rosie told her she was in withdrawal from heroin when she was born but when she checked hospital records her tests came back clean
Chelsea denies she's 'mentally ill' but reveals her struggle with depression and anxiety since Rosie divorced Kelli Carpenter
A rep for Rosie says that the interview is “heartbreaking on every level.”
Ugh. Honestly, I feel for Rosie. Parenting is one of the hardest jobs and no matter how hard your try, there will be obstacles that will get in the way. No one knows what the real truth is (except for Rosie and her children, of course), but I would hope that Chelsea would refrain from doing any mother interviews. Embarrassing her mother is doing no one any good, and if anything, they find their peace soon.
