Rosie O’Donnell opens up about her sexual abuse by her father

Rosie O’Donnell is letting the public in on her childhood in a different light. Rosie who is a talk-show host and a comedian has become a trendy and familiar face who is now part of an upcoming book titled “Ladies Who Punch”: The Explosive Inside Story of The View.

Even though the ABC daytime talk-show is a “Hot Topic” in the book, the comedian also chose to disclose to author Ramin Setoodeh about her youthful personal experiences. Per claims by Rosie, her father Edward Joseph O’Donnell, allegedly sexually abused her.

Rosie O’Donnell shared with “Variety’s New York bureau chief”, “It started very young”. “And then when my mother died, it sort of ended in a weird way, because then he was with these five children to take care of. On the whole, it’s not something I like to talk about.”

She went on, “Of course, it changes everyone. Any child who is put in that position, especially by someone in the family, you feel completely powerless and stuck, because the person you would tell is the person doing it.”

Edward ultimately passed away in 2015, and according to Variety, Rosie’s specific details linked with her dad appeared in a chapter about “The Rosie O’Donnell Show”. If you are a lover of the daytime TV show, then you should know that Rosie would be co-hosting as well as moderating for “The View”.

O’Donnell has also for a long time, been an advocate for a sexual abuse victim.
Way to go Rosie!
