BANNED FROM: The Rosie O’Donnell Show

Rosie O’Donnell revealed there was a list of about five celebrities who were banned from her talk show, which aired from 1996-2002.

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Rosie was asked why stars got banned and she responded, “Sometimes it was just excessive drug use that was evident. Like cocaine on the side [of the nose] and they weren’t able to focus.”

“One guy, Leif Garrett, came with a fresh wound from a pipe that he used for crack,” she continued. “He sort of gnawed it out. So when I met him in the green room, he had a normal face and he came out a few minutes later and he had a huge red welt of burn from being in the green room those 20 minutes I didn’t see him. People who are that messed up shouldn’t be on TV.”

Leif Garrett is a singer and actor, and made an appearance on Rosie‘s show in 1999.
