Rosie O'Donnell: Shocking Revelations in New Book
Fox News ^ | September 12, 2007 | Roger Friedman

Posted on 09/12/2007 8:31:39 PM PDT by yorkie

Rosie O’Donnell used to break her own limbs with either a baseball bat or a wooden hanger when she was a child.

This revelation, as well as many about her experiences on "The View" last year, is contained in a new book she’s written due shortly called “Celebrity Detox.”

This personal memory, so shocking, is almost thrown toward the end of what is better described as a long essay than a short memoir. [snip] She broke her own bones, she recalls, “my hands and fingers usually. No one knew. It was a secret.” She used a Mets baseball bat she got on bat day or the hanger. Why? It was “proof I had some value, enough to be fixed.” She recalls that she was no longer sad about her mother’s death, but “distracted.”

Rosie also dangles another clue about her childhood in two sentences. “There were many benefits to having a cast. In the middle of the night, it was a weapon.”

Why she would need a weapon in the middle of the night is not addressed.

Most of “Celebrity Detox,” which a source supplied to me Tuesday, is about Rosie’s life — her mother, her kids, her life before and after "The View."

More evidence that she is either insane or a liar. I suspect both. I might feel sorry for her someday if she will take her money and crawl away in a hole for the rest of her pathetic life.

The only “shocking” revelation that could possibly come out of the book is if she had ever voted for a Republican.

If true, it's the first time in history that wood shattered bone /o'donnel mode

I think everybody knew Rosie had some "toys in her attic", but I never could have guessed she was that far gone.

She's been riding a horse with only one rocker.

Of course I have nothing but contempt for her insane ramblings and childish behavior regarding Donald Trump, I have to express my sympathy for her as a child. Imagine breaking your own bones. That would probably qualify for Munchausen’s Syndrome, where you injure yourself for attention. The comment about the advantages of wearing a cast also makes one think.

This could go a long way into explaining the person she has become. Maybe an excellent psychotherapist could help her get right with the world. After all, she co-parents two children.

I remember her way back when she did stand up comedy. She made an odd comment about her being the only girl in a houseful of brothers. I don’t recall her mentioning her father, or the rest of the routine. At the time, she didn’t sound particularly looney.

From the article:

“As I slipped back into celebrity land,” Rosie writes of her return to daytime TV, “the tasks multiplied a thousandfold, and the letters addressed to me but having nothing to do with the real me — the mother me, the married me, the friend me — the letters addressed to the celebrity me began to pour in again. … I had gone four years living alone and now my mailbox was overflowing and people were telling me I was fantastic, the funniest, the happiest, the brightest. ...”

Why she would need a weapon in the middle of the night is not addressed.

My guess is that she was molested. Many gays were.

I hope nobody buys her “book”. If she was/is breaking her bones where is Kelly for all of this? Seems to me that the two of them are unfit to have children. Rosie is just a loud big mouthed anti American scummer. I refuse to watch anything she is on. Best thing about her being on TV is that I can turn her off. She is totally disgusting.

Thank God Fox News is covering this! Please keep me updated. That real news about the world’s future with General Petraeus reporting on Iraq, Iran, al-Qaeda, the Sunni insurgency, The Shiite militas...

That doesn’t come close to the excitement of the WALL-TO-WALL coverage that Fox News (cough, cough... Bill O’Reilly) gives to frikin’ Rosie O’Donnell.

Can we get some more BRITNEY SPEARS while we’re at it!!!

Rosie is pathetic, but conservatives must put her in perspective. In politics and culture, she is a nobody with little following. As a conservative, I have little antipathy for her. Rosie is a hater, but it is obvious she hates herself as well as the whole world and she is self-destructive. I save my antipathy for the likes of Bill Maher, Keith Olberdorque, and Chwissy Mathews who unlike Rosy are taken seriously by way too many people.
