We guess Chelsea O’Donnell and Rosie O’Donnell won’t be spending Christmas together.
In a Daily Mail exclusive interview, Chelsea opened up about the current state of affairs with Rosie following their dramatic fallout over the summer. The 18-year-old also addressed where she’s living and with whom.
The last time O’Donnell spoke out she was living with a man she met on Tinder, 26-year-old Steven Sheerer. Not only does the blonde have a new 30-year-old boyfriend, but she also coincidentally moved to Rosie’s hometown of Massapequa, Long Island — with what looks to be a familial friend.
C.O.’s new address and man apparently isn’t sitting well with the comedienne, however. When Chelsea refused to attend a year long therapeutic program in Texas at the bequest of The View alum, she lashed out.
Check out the uncomfortable exchange (below):
Yikes! How terrible — we can’t believe it has come to this.
The Long Island resident elaborated on her decision to refuse help:
“Rosie and my other mom Kelli Carpenter want me to go to Texas for an independent living, therapy program. For the first 60 days it’s very restricted, you can’t do anything and it’s just strictly therapy. After that you move into an independent living program where you get your own apartment and you can have your own car. People could come visit me but I don’t know if I’d be able to go home. They sent me away from when I was 13 until I was 17. This is my choice and I don’t feel like I need it at this point. I’ve been in so much therapy in the last couple of years that I know everything they’re going to teach me. I’m just trying to figure out other aspects of my life, like getting a job and finishing school. I can get a therapist on the side.”
Sounds reasonable. Chelsea also mentioned how getting sent away at thirteen-years-old was very traumatic and alienated her from the family.
The funny woman has even harassed the new family O’Donnell has sought refuge with, explaining:
“Rosie and Kelli are not happy that I’m staying with this family. Rosie has been really mean to the lady I’m living with over text messages, like texts she’s sent me in the past. It gets to the point where the lady is crying because my mom is being so mean. They were hurtful messages and she told the lady that she was a stranger and a crazy Rosie fan. Rosie was like, ‘You must just love me and want to get to me.'”
Woah! We really hope these claims aren’t true!
As for life without Ro, the former runaway is doing really well with her new fam despite a few hospital visits:
“They have been really helpful and they’re a big part of my life right now. I’m happy there.”
Well, at least Chelsea is in a better living situation! Hopefully things only get better for the 18-year-old from here.
So, what do YOU think of this feud?
