Rosie O’Donnell says “The rage has gone away”
HollywoodNews.com: I don’t know about you, but I found the sometimes angry Rosie O’Donnell of The View a lot more interesting – and far more authentic – than the Queen of Nice persona from The Rosie O’Donnell Show.
But now Rosie, set to return with a nightly show on OWN, tells her new boss Oprah Winfrey that she’s not so angry anymore.
“You know, I think I had a lot more rage than I was aware of,” O’Donnell says. “But I’ve gotten back access to my other feelings. I’m not cut off from my emotions anymore … The rage has gone away … There’s been a healing.”
Here is an excerpt from Rosie’s O Magazine interview:
O: The last time we saw you on TV, you were sparring with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View. How does it feel to be commanding your own stage again?
Rosie O’Donnell: Exciting, scary—and right. I feel like everything’s sort of aligned now. I’ve been offered other shows over the years, but it never felt like the right time. There was something about getting to do it for OWN, with Oprah’s sensibility, her touch, her world presence—what she stands for and who she is—that felt like a gift. To be on the field wearing an OWN jersey is the way to go.
