Rosie O’Donnell’s Daughter: My Mother Is A ‘Phony’ Who Is A ‘Completely Different Person In Public Than At Home’

Rosie O’Donnell’s Daughter: My Mother Is A ‘Phony’ Who Is A ‘Completely Different Person In Public Than At Home’

Rosie O’Donnell is a trainwreck. Her personal and public life both appear to be constantly filled with choppy water and even her own daughter says that O’Donnell is simply a “phony.”


Rosie O’Donnell appears to have acknowledged her daughter’s bombshell interview with The Daily Mail Online by cryptically sharing a quote online from a children’s book about a child that runs away and how their worried mother reacts.

Chelsea O’Donnell, 18, was reported missing in August by her mother, who posted to Twitter that her daughter ‘stopped taking her medicine and is in need of medical attention’.

However Chelsea claims it was Rosie who kicked her out of the house, and called her mother a ‘phony’ who is a ‘completely different person in public than at home’.

On Wednesday, the comedian tweeted a photo of three of her five children playing, along with the lines: ‘I will grow, I will grow, I will grow. I will grow without you. I will feel the sun on my face and I will thrive.’

The quote is from a children’s picture book called The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown.

The book is about a young rabbit who tells his mother he wants to run away.

However the mother says she will follow her son and says she will become anything he wants her to be.

As part of the story reads:

”If you become a little boy and run into a house,’ said the mother bunny, ‘I will become your mother and catch you in my arms.’

‘You are not a true mother to me,’ said the bunny.

‘I am your only mother,’ said his mother.

‘Ahhh,’ said the bunny, ‘I might just as well stay where I am.’

And so he did.

‘Have a carrot,’ said the mother bunny.

He did not want it, but there was no one else who would feed him, so he took what she had to offer and he ate it.

The Tweet came after The Daily Mail Online published a wide-ranging exclusive interview with Chelsea, who hit back at the claims made by her mother that she suffers from mental illness.

‘Putting out there (on Twitter) that I am mentally ill was really hurtful.

‘People think I’m this crazy person and as I’ve said, I have depression and bad anxiety – but it’s been something that’s gotten a lot better.

‘But these were personal things and I didn’t want anyone to know them about me.

‘I wouldn’t say I’m mentally ill – I would say lots of people struggle with what I have.’

Chelsea said that after being kicked out of home, she went to New Jersey, to the home that her boyfriend, Steven Sheerer, shares with his parents.

Chelsea met Sheerer, 25, on Tinder while still 17 years old. Sheerer was convicted of possessing controlled dangerous substances and child endangerment after a 2013 incident in which he was arrested with heroin and marijuana while in a car with a woman and her two children, aged one and three.

He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two years’ probation.

When she arrived in New Jersey, Chelsea said that Steve bought her a disposable phone so she would be able to get in contact with her friends and family.

Police said in a statement that Chelsea had used an unknown cell phone to contact her family from August 11 because the teen did not have her own phone or computer with her.

Chelsea was found by police on August 18 at Sheerer’s home and she went with them willingly.

‘Rosie said that I was missing and I had run away and had me brought home,’ Chelsea said.

‘I knew the police were looking for me from the news and I was hoping to get home first, so it wouldn’t be this big deal. The police were nice though and they brought me back to Nyack.

Chelsea is currently living with Steve and his family in Barnegat Township, New Jersey. Mr Sheerer declined to comment to Daily Mail Online.

Chelsea acknowledged her boyfriend’s past but said: ‘I guess everyone is putting out there he’s a bad guy from things that happened in the past but he’s not.

‘He supports me and I love him. He’s not into anything bad now, he works hard.

‘Rosie text me the other day and called me a “cash cow”. She said Steve’s family are talking to people about me for money, it’s not nice.

‘She’s texting me as if Steve is keeping me here and not letting me leave which is not the case. I’m really happy to be here, and happier than I’ve been in years.’

The 18 year old said that she had no financial support from Rosie since leaving her home in Nyack.

The teen and her boyfriend plan to move to Wisconsin soon. Chelsea wants to finish her last year of high school online and get her diploma. She then plans to go to community college and study law enforcement.

Chelsea said: ‘I’m pretty normal. I guess now I can just prove to Rosie that I am.’

I’m not privy to the inner circle of Rosie’s life; however, even I can see that there is simply something deranged about the woman.
