Rosie O'Donnell Comes Out Swinging
Knew this one would steamroll quickly. On the heels of a Globe report and the cover headline "Abusive Rosie Bullies Son, 12," Rosie O'Donnell's rep has lashed out, saying, "The story is absolutely ludicrous and ridiculous. There is no truth to it whatsoever."
The piece goes on to say she's likely subjecting her other kids, Chelsea, 10, Blake, 8, and Vivi, to psychological damage by launching into their brother in front of them.
Rosie has devoted her post-TV life to child-centered charity orgs, starting Rosie's For All Kids for little ones born into poverty and Rosie's Broadway Kids to increase arts education in the schools.
As a contributor to wife Kelli O'Donnell's R Family Vacations cruise line, for gay families and the folks who love them, she takes the time to stop and chat with every single young'un in sight.
No one would argue that Rosie has a temper, but manhandling her adopted firstborn, Parker Jaren, the one who, she never hesitates to reveal, changed her world from black and white to color? No way.
As of this writing, still no statement from the erstwhile Queen of Nice on her haiku-laden blog, but this is not a lady who holds back.
Watch for her to let fly then expect either a retraction or a lawsuit.
