It’s all starting to make sense now.
Rosie OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Donnell used to break her own limbs with either a baseball bat or a wooden hanger when she was a child. This revelation, as well as many about her experiences on “The View” last year, is contained in a new book sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s written due shortly called Ã¢â‚¬Å“Celebrity Detox.Ã¢â‚¬Â
She broke her own bones, she recalls, Ã¢â‚¬Å“my hands and fingers usually. No one knew. It was a secret.Ã¢â‚¬Â She used a Mets baseball bat she got on bat day or the hanger. Why? It was Ã¢â‚¬Å“proof I had some value, enough to be fixed.Ã¢â‚¬Â She recalls that she was no longer sad about her motherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s death, but Ã¢â‚¬Å“distracted.Ã¢â‚¬Â
This is shocking. Shocking! Until Rosie’s revelation I was under the impression that a Mets bat never made solid contact with anything for most of the 1960’s. I was mistaken.
By the way, Rosie finished that decade with a .187 average, meaning she hit almost two out of every ten fingers she swung at.
Rosie also dangles another clue about her childhood in two sentences. Ã¢â‚¬Å“There were many benefits to having a cast. In the middle of the night, it was a weapon.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Now those imaginary flies and cartoon bluebirds think twice before messing with Rosie, dammit!
