*Drama between Rosie O’Donnell and her eldest daughter Chelsea has led the 18-year-old to drag all of their dirty laundry into these streets – and it has reportedly left Rosie heartbroken.
Chelsea told MailOnline that her famous mom is a pot-smoking recluse and claimed a feud with Whoopi Goldberg drove her to leave “The View” for a second time.
“She and Whoopi really didn’t get along and she’d come home every day and talk about how she was stoned on set and she was being really mean to her,” Chelsea O’Donnell told the outlet.
According to Chelsea, her mother said she didn’t need to get a second heart attack from Whoopi-induced stress: “I don’t need this much stress,” Chelsea recounted Rosie saying.
Chelsea, who was recently missing for two weeks before being found with an older man, said her mom acted one way for the public, and a completely different way around her kids.
“When we’d go out, she was a completely different person in public than at home, and I had a hard time with that. It’s like two different people,” Chelsea said, depicting the former “The View” co-host as a phony — energetic and personable in public but a reclusive weed smoker at home.
“She has this public persona; she will put this big smile on her face and try to be funny . . . whereas when we were home . . . she would either just be in her room, not engaging with us, or watching documentaries.”
