Rosie O’Donnell – a conversation with Mark Henick / So-Called Normal – Episode 1

Hey friends –

With my TEDx talk passing the 5,000,000 view milestone, I’m going to celebrate in a very special way.

I’m happy to share this recent conversation that I had with Rosie O’Donnell, on location at her home in New York City (also embedded below).

We cover a lot of ground: her new treatment for OCD, the impact of her former partner’s suicide, her journey toward repairing her relationship with her daughter, and, of course, her decade-old feud with Donald Trump.

In our conversation together, I was struck by Rosie’s determination, her passion, and her good humor. I hope that you enjoy it, and let me know on Facebook or Twitter what you thought and who you’d like to hear from in the future.

  1. Fabulous interview with Rosie. I’ve always loved her, I love people who speak their minds – you can be real in their midst. These last several days have been hard on so many people and I’m wondering how Rosie could speak to them. I’m also looking forward to her book of Trump caricatures – please, Rosie, you have to do it! I’ve worked with children with autism and Rosie’s right about there being some magic in their presence: I think it’s that magic that we identify so quickly when we see it. Rosie also needs to be reminded that a mother can only be her best when she looks after herself first. I get where she’s coming from, but I know that to be true. So, do something just for you today, Rosie – and thanks so much for sharing yourself with us here in la-la-land!

  2. I appreciate your preface about sharing more stories post recovery. It’s a tender and tentative time that continues to require care and attention. Others’ maintenance methods may be helpful to solidify positive results. 🙂

  3. Rosie is the real deal, always speaking up against unjust matters in the world even when all she will again in return is the backlash. Intelligent, passionate and wise, keep speaking up Rosie XO

  4. Have loved Rosie since I was in my early twenties (am 52 now). To sum her up, She is all things wonderful. Thanks for this interview.
