Rosie O'Donnell returns to TV in a Lifetime movie
AP ^ | 2/25/09 | By RYAN PEARSON

Rosie O'Donnell says she doesn't have time these days to view "The View."

"I don't watch it too much," O'Donnell said. "I don't really watch too much daytime, having four kids and being kind of overwhelmed by that."

O'Donnell — who left the daytime talk show in 2007 after a single tumultuous season — returns to TV on Saturday night with a Lifetime movie about the foster-care system called "America." She had been a foster parent to two children, including a girl named Rosie for 1 1/2 years, when an intern in 2002 handed her the book by E.R. Frank that inspired the movie.

O'Donnell, who co-wrote the script and is executive producer, plays a therapist for a boy aging out of foster care. She discovered her 17-year-old co-star Philip Johnson while eating at a Detroit diner just days before production was to begin.

... O'Donnell is raising four children with Kelli Carpenter, who she married five years ago in a San Francisco ceremony courts later invalidated. They range in age from 13-year-old Parker to 6-year-old Vivi.

O'Donnell found this year's Academy Awards to be "beautifully gay," and praised acceptance speeches by "Milk" Dustin Lance Black and Sean Penn.

...

In the wake of California voters banning same-sex marriage, O'Donnell said she expects the gay-rights movement to move beyond individual states.

"We keep walking forward," she said. "Civil rights don't happen overnight. I think it's going to happen, and it's going to happen soon. It will be national."

I can't believe Lifetime is now selling the "alternative lifestyle".

Is it "progress" when two lesbians are raising 4 children? Or when a raging lesbo writes a movie instructing us about fostering children?

Locally, we have an agency that provides all types of services for families and children. Many of these professionals employed by the agency are gay and lesbian. Lesbians that are playing "married" and getting artificially inseminated from gay friends. Something is greatly WRONG about this picture, when these people are instructing our families how to be families.

First, I can’t believe you posted this and second, Lifetime has been selling the ‘alternative’ lifestyle since it’s aired.

Hopefully the ratings will be so bad that she will be seen as the kiss of death to any project she appears in.

Are they re-making “Orca - the Killer Whale”?

I know... That was mean.

But then, so is Rosie.

No, she hates herself. And is desperately seeking some sort of completion to compensate for her perceived shortcomings.

Rosie is an angry bitter belligerant, antagonistic person.

Hard to believe she was once “Queen of Nice” in a previous life on a previous show of hers.

She wasn’t “out” of the closet then as I recall. She made jokes about a crush on Tom Cruise. Now that she’s “out” the whole thing about her liking Tom Cruise makes no sense.

She can blame straight society for all her problems. She will blame straight society for her bitterness and anger because society tried to make her be a certain way, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Why is it that everyone who isn’t “gay” and doesn’t understand homosexuality has to bend and change for them?

Why can’t they bend for the rest of society? Why is everything from marriage to adoption to foster care of children and every family issue, somehow “discrminiatory” against a homosexual?

Less than 20% of gay couples in relationships in Massachusetts are married. Most gay couples don’t even want to get married, yet this has become the big cause amoung homosexuals and liberals.

Why do we have to change society just to prove how liberal we are?

Didn't you hear? It turns out it's just a regular coin with a cheap sticker on it selling for $20. Sort of like Obama himself it was all show.

Even then, they still need to "pan and scan."

"I don't really watch too much daytime, having four kids and being kind of overwhelmed by that."

As a mother having raised 4 children...what the heck is she doing with the kids during the day? The youngest is 6. Unless she's homeschooling them, she should have some time. NOT that I'm advocating watching the view...I'm just saying...does she have to recoup during the day for having the nanny watch the kids after school & at night? I'm pretty sure she's not washing dishes & vacuuming during the day. Dumb excuse. Why doesn't she just say it like it is: she hates her former seat mates and doesn't want to watch them. Dims lie about everything.

Yeah, do you really think she has that much to do with them? Nannys and all that. She is just blowing off the View because they dumped her. She is a woman of “issues”.
