Rosie Remembers Heche

While Anne Heche was on life support, Rosie O’Donnell took to social media to say she was “feeling bad that I made fun of her when she was talking to Barbara Walters about having a relationship with space aliens.”  After her death, Rosie decided to sit down and read Heche’s memoir, Call Me Crazy.  It didn’t take long before she found a troublesome passage – which I will quote here: “I was promoting, I think, Donnie Brasco, and I went on the Rosie O’Donnell Show.  So when I was in my dressing room, I got a knock on the door and Rosie comes in and sets herself down uncomfortably in front of me and basically states, ‘Let me cut to the point.  If you bring up the fact that you and Ellen are a couple, I will not promote you.  We will erase this episode…If you bring her up, if you bring up gay love, if you bring up love, if you bring up anything to do with the movement that you feel that you’re a part of, you will not have your film promoted.”  Heche hastens to add that O’Donnell was not out at that time.

Rosie responds to this portion of Anne’s book.  “I would say not true and not likely.  I can’t imagine ever saying anything like that to anyone, never mind a guest about to appear on my show.  So no, that was not accurate, and kind of shocking to hear it, truthfully…No way in God’s green hell.  So I’m sorry that we never got to talk about that.  But I never said that to anyone in my life.”  Rosie kinda affirmed her stance by posting a second appearance by Heche on her talk show where they both spoke openly about Ellen.  So there!
