An interesting look at Rosie O'Donnell's background, from her childhood, talk show, and magazine, to the birth of her daughter, Vivi, with partner Kelli. Although the title of the book is sensationalistic, you may find yourself sympathizing with Rosie. Strong-willed, talented, and driven, she found herself in the difficult position of reconciling her public persona with her actual personality. The result is that she alienated many of her fans. In reading this book, you begin to understand the inner workings of this troubled but ambitious woman.

Cover blurb: Rosie O'Donnell became a true rags to riches American success story. After losing her mother to cancer and being raised by a father she calls abusive and alcoholic, she beat the odds to become one of the most versatile stars in the history of showbiz with hits in television, movies, theatre, and stand-up comedy. Marketing herself as the "Queen of Nice," her adoring fans could relate to this down-to-earth single mom who lusted for Tom Cruise, idolized Barbra Streisand and fought a never-ending battle with her weight. Then at the peak of her popularity as one of her friends said, 'something inside Rosie suddenly snapped."

My view of the book - a good look inside a nut case. This broad has as much common sense as a toothpaste tube.

Oh, I loved this book. So well written and with such insight. Rose-O was not one of my favorite people, I only watched her show a few times but this book was really good in showing the marketing of the "Queen of Nice"...from the files of The National section...
