Rosie Passes on Oprah

Rosie Passes on Oprah

Rosie O’Donnell turned down an opportunity to promote her book “Celebrity Detox” with Oprah, opting instead to be interviewed by Diane Sawyer. (The book slams Barbara Walters, Donald Trump and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.)

Says Rosie‘s rep to Page Six, “I’m sure Rosie will do Oprah‘s show another time.”

Rosie quickly turned to her blog to express her reasons why she turned down the big invitation from Oprah. Here’s her reasons why, explained on her official blog:

the book
was hard 2 write

things i could barely say aloud
alone in a room
made their way to the comp
thru the key board
or tape recorder

writing is
4 me
by far
the most revealing medium
2 work in

i do not feel ready
to discuss or defend
the things i shared
on those 209 pages

read it urself
take away what u need
leave the rest
it is what it is

the goal always is peace
self revelation
sharing – learning – teaching
wax on wax off

for now
i decided no interviews
about celebrity detox
it is too raw

my no
has nothing 2 do with anything
but me
my need 2 find my place

oprah is a force of nature
her invitation made me cry
her kind words about the book
reinforces what we all know
2 b true about her

although fueds seems 2 b all the rage
there isnt one
regardless of what u read
or see on fast food tv

with pure intent
comes pure result
we pray

off 2 b dawn budge
in the other holy land
peace out peeps

    Rosie needs deep therapy. It’s time for her to get away from the spotlight.

  • Kibbell

    It´s so hard to read those pieces that Rosie write´s. I´m like, is it a poem, some sort of lyric´s, what the hell?

  • Patmycrotch

    Glad she did not do Oprah

  • a realist

    Good for you Rosie. I am in your corner. I will most certainly ready your book. You are a good person, girl.

  • Samantha

    Rosie is a loser I’m glad she’s not going on Oprah either. Rosie is obviously a very depressed woman that needs therapy.

  • haiku? NO!

    Rosie is one of the rudest people ever. You can tell she didn’t have a mother. She under the delusion that everyone thinks like her. Only someone with no education has delusions like this. When Kelly leaves her, that will be it for her.

  • a realist

    Baba Wawa, and Elisab*tch are disgusting nasty b*tches.
    Donald Trump is a crazed narcissistic fool.

  • a realist

    Oh yeah, Elisab*tch Hasselb*tch is a psycho who needs to get some serious help.

  • KarenA

    Seriously, Rosie O’Donnell is so ridiculous. “The View” is better off without her and I’m surprised Oprah would want to give Rosie a forum to voice her hate as well. I mean, how fake is Rosie O’Donnell? Can you guys believe there was a time when she was regarded as “The Queen of Nice”? That was before all the pretense dropped away and all that was left was a rude, classless, loud person that hardly anyone misses or cares to see again. This book? Desperate.

  • madison

    If she isn’t ready to discuss her book, she shouldn’t have published it.

  • Clementines

    She’s so deeply disturbed..She should not be around children either.

  • Kristin

    Kelly is a beautiful woman, and I hope and pray that she will soon realize that Rosie is seriously disturbed and a danger to all of those around her, including those precious children.

  • Kiss my fat ass

    Haiku NO!:

    I’m so glad you think your opinion matters to anyone. And you must truly be a wonderful person for wishing that a devoted couple breaks up as some sort of cosmic punishment for lacking a formal college education [which is not unusual for Rosie's generation] and for having lost a mother to cancer at the age of 10. You truly should win a humanitarian award for asshattery.


    Publishers decide when to publish WRITTEN works. Just because she doesn’t want to go on a bunch of talk shows to TALK about the book, which should stand on its own as a work or writing, isn’t necessarily a bad thing.


    Rosie and all her friends openly admit she is not “The Queen of Nice.” It’s interesting you find the book “desperate” when all you really know about it comes from the same inaccurate sources who started calling Rosie by the name. Gee, maybe it’s the “news” media who are the real pretenders, and not the talent they like to lie about. Ever consider that?


    Rosie does indeed suffer from the malady clinical depression and she is in therapy. So? You probably need a little help too considering your lack of empathy and general bitchiness.


    You’re an ugly bitch. I pray to GOD ALMIGHTY that you are alone for the rest of your life…because you’re ugly.

    Why would you write the foolishness you wrote? How did this make you feel? You’re a self-involved idiot.

  • Suzzy

    Rosie is not anger, she is love. She has a past, like we all do, and she chose to share it with her fans even though much of it is so painful. Much of ours is painful too. She is sharing it so that others might not feel so alone.

  • magnus

    Sanctimonious lardass.

    Quit trying to come off as anything more than an uppity queer.

    Hi Rosie,
    On the real side Rosie, you are too sensitive to other opinion’s
    that butch gene works in overdrive, are you on meds,? please don’t
    miss a dose, and for God sake don’t shave your head.hahaha lol

    Glad she did not do Oprah

    HI Wash my crotch..ummm..need some soap, bleach maybe???

  • Iris

    There’s nothing interesting about what she has to say, anyone can be bitchy.

  • Fat-girl

    Rosie doesn’t like Oprah but she’s too chicken shit to openly take her on. But she doesn’t lose coll points for that. You’d be an idiot to not fear the OPRAH.

  • bebe

    Rosie needs to get off her self-righteous high horse. She’s a sad, sad case.

  • ick.

    Rosie plays the ‘victim’ role to the hilt. Woe is me. Poor me. I’m so misunderstood. It’s all about me me me. The world revolves around me! WWWWWWWWAAAAA. She wears the liberal lesbo badge, very well.

  • Cris

    Rosie is just WAY too outspoken. No one cares what she has to say, so she should just keep her mouth shut. You either support her or strongly hate her, and I know which side I’m on – I see nothing in her to support in any way.

  • hehe

    bi+ch needs to learn how to write properly. She’s too old to write that way. Ugghhh, just another reason to dislike her, great!

With this tool, you can instantly see which keyword phrases are less competitive but still highly searched. Used to its full potential, this plugin will revolutionize your online business and help you to reap huge financial rewards. Once you type a headline in your blog post, you can click “get suggestions” making it easy to get instant stats so that you can choose the best headline based on its overall searches per month, competitive nature and search trend! It is all done semi-automatically so you can just write your posts as usual and select the search terms that you want to rank for. The more competetive search words will be highlighted in red so that you can avoid those, if you want. You can drill down on any suggested keyword until you get a low competition keyword.
