Rosie O’Donnell will release her second memoir “Celebrity Detox” on October the 9th. The book will focus on the struggles with leaving fame behind. She admits that “Fame it is, in fact, a drug”. She confided that she has had â€œan interesting year,â€ and a lot of it will be in her new book. O’Donnell said her long-delayed memoir on fame will not be ”vindictive” or ”mean-spirited,” but will offer a candid look at her very public life.
“The Insider” has acquired a copy of the controversial book and it seems that every page reveals stunning things. Some of the hot topics treated is her painful childhood. On page 186, she writes that she used to break her limbs when she was a child:
“My hands and fingers usually. No one knew. My secret.” Why? “Proof,” she confeses, “that I had some value, enough to be fixed.” And later, Rosie cryptically adds, “There were many benefits to having a cast. In the middle of the night, it was a weapon.”
She also covers the Donald Trump episode and describes a dispute with Barbara Walters when she repeatedly called her a “liar” for not defending her in that situation. She names the mogul a ” scarecrow” and “a garden slug.”
On Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Rosie writes: “Elisabeth, antiabortion, pro Bush, pro war, believes in everything I don’t, and I believe in everything she doesn’t. She’s as slender as I am fat, as restrained as I am vociferous, as polite as I am frank,” adding, “Right from the start I could see in this slip of a girl so different from me, I could see something fierce, a fist in the frill, and I liked that. But we had no language in common.”
