WOW! Who would say such a thing to their child? Rosie O’Donnell’s daughter is haunted by an episode with her ‘drunken’ mother who locked her in her bedroom, tried to pull off her clothes to see the tattoo’s she had gotten, afraid of Rosie who threatened to hit her with an empty wine bottle and told she could ‘kill her’.
What was going through her mind, what led up to this very moment was it an act of discipline or plain rage and madness, you ask?
In May 2015 Chelsea O’Donnell says, is the beginning of two years of ups and downs with her mother which is now irreparable.
Chelsea revealed that her and her boyfriend Nick Alliegro, 31, secretly got married July of last year when she found out she was pregnant.
But the newlyweds were devastated with terrible news a few weeks later when she had a miscarriage.
‘I told Rosie about the miscarriage but she never seemed to care or even asked any questions, like it didn’t matter to her,’ Nick told DailyMail.com.
Problems began between the two shortly before Chlesea’s 18th Birthday in August 2015.
Three months before Chelsea’s 18th birthday, she got the word ‘Breathe’ tattooed on her side. O’Donnell was livid.
Prior to the tattoos, Rosie had placed spyware on her daughter’s phone to watch over everything she did.
‘She called me into her room and asked me about the tattoo. I denied it.
‘She asked me to take off my clothes – she didn’t know where it was – to show her and I refused.
‘She picked up a wine bottle and started chasing me, trying to take off my clothes.
‘She told me if I didn’t show her, if I tried to leave, that she would hit me with the wine bottle, call the police and tell them that I had attacked her.
‘She was holding it above her head and coming after me in her room. She kept trying to run after me and saying that if she really wanted to she could kill me, she’s that strong.
‘She ended up pulling my shirt up and seeing it. Then I left. I didn’t see her for the rest of the night.’
After so much bickering and accusations back and forth with Chelsea and O’Donnell, Chelsea has agreed to drop the charges against O’Donnell.
Many assumptions have been told to plenty of people, but who is to say what really happened and if it was necessary that things went to the extent of charges being filed, relationships being lost and lives being destroyed by bad decisions.

“I haven’t been a fan of Rosie since her Elizabeth Hasselbeck days, but I hate to see any daughter taking joy in publicly humiliating and backstabbing her mother. What an awful thing to come forward with. I had a wonderful mother, and getting tattooed up and pregnant by a guy I met at Dunkin Donuts… would have resulted in a lot more than being chased around the house screaming or ignored the rest of the evening. A ‘difficult’ upbringing? Try reading about real difficulties, real abuse, or the little boy run over who didn’t have a place to sleep. Ungrateful little girl. Like her or not, I’d say Rosie O’Donnell has only wanted the best for this girl. Hope she realizes that someday.” – TJGirl
To be honest, I’ve seen this happen too many times, sometimes its the parents and sometimes its the kids. Despite what the situation is when someone has taken you into their home and raised you as their own you give respect no matter what. The way they raise you, structures you into the person that you become as an adult. When you do things your not suppose to, your taught a lesson whether it be through discipline or just letting you fail and get back up on your own, but there’s always a lesson being taught in all that you do growing up in life. One thing parents lack today is discipline and respect. What values are we teaching our children if all they do is continue to be secretive, dishonest and have no respect for those they call parents.
