Rosie O’Donnell is in a pretty shitty situation. She and wife Michelle Rounds are in the midst of a messy divorce and Rounds is trying to get custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Dakota. Her reasoning for this is claiming that Rosie isn’t a fit parent (despite the fact that she has several other children and has done a fine job). In order to get what she wants, she’s also accused Rosie of being a druggie, and a drug test has indeed proven that she smokes weed. Big whoop, right?
From Radar Online:
Rounds accused O’Donnell of “excessive use of booze and weed” in previously filed court documents, so the former TV star submitted to the test to settle the issue once and for all, The Enquirer says.
But unfortunately for O’Donnell, “It came back positive for drugs,” an insider told the magazine. “When Rosie found out, she was furious!”
“She’s been trying to hide her drug use for a long time, and she didn’t realize that marijuana stays in your system for a number of months.”
The shocking results is expected to be revealed during the warring couple’s next court appearance on Wednesday, the source added, and O’Donnell could face further medical and psychological testing as a result.
Said the source, “It could blow up her chances of getting custody!”
I mean, come on, that’s absolutely ridiculous. Like, my stoner days are over, mostly because I’m too much of a workaholic now and weed makes me lazy as hell, but I also don’t think smoking up is the devil’s work. It’s not like she’s doing it around the kids (one would assume – if she is, that’s obviously an issue) and it seriously does not make a person an unfit parent because they like to zone out and get stoned every once in a while. Like, what? Unless further details come out that paint Rosie in a bad light (that could be proven), I’m Team Rosie on this one all the way. Also, her wife is kind of an asshole for putting their daughter in the middle of all this.
