This is a train wreck of a book ??? part self-help psychobabble, part searing memoir ??? by a grown woman who lost her mother as a child. It???s baffling and fascinating and brutally honest, although some stories defy logic.
Let this excerpt of Detox – in which Rosie makes a plea to ex-Boss Barbara Walters – embolden your trust in the critique above and fight off any pangs of interest in this book you may be feeling. What the selection lacks in length, it makes up for with angst:
???you did not defend me. And I have been a good, loyal daughter to you. And I want you to be a good mother to me. Don???t let the bad man hurt me.
Baby talk in mass production! Baby talk!
That picture is Hollywood GOLD.
Do Not Want!
Mommy, protect me from Rosie. What’s that, mother? You want me to kill Babwa? I can’t, mother, don’t make me. *sobs*
And so on.
No… wire… hangers. I TOLD YOU NO WIRE HANGERS EVER!!!
“Were you making FUN of me, Christina?”
“No, Mommy, I was ‘acting’.”
run barbara! there’s a horrible blob trying to absorb you!
Raise your hand if you’re shocked Rosie’s book is “baaaaaaaaaaad” or “a train wreck.”
Nobody should be surprised because its by the same person who posts this on their blog:
It is all rules
commas And capitals
U cannot avoid them
Blinking at u
Stop ??? yeild
I SAID NO ONIONS
Why doesn’t Cord ever say things so eloquently?
i don’t think cord has been close enough to rosie to absorb her ignorance.
Not as close as Baba Wawa, thats for sure
the look on baba wawa’s face is priceless, it looks like she thinks being gay is contagious or something.
I don’t think Babwa has a problem with the gays, I just think she has a distinct problem with kissing Rosie. I would make out with Angelina Jolie, but I would never make out with Rosie. It’s a matter of degrees.
yeah, you’re right evil. maybe she thinks self-rightous pig is contagious.
And not to be Perezish, but I’ve always had a suspicion that Babwa was a “sister.” To use horribly antiquated terminology for “lesbian.”
the mental image of “whoreanus” is also pretty disturbing…just sayin
*shudder* i think it might be smut day at mollygood. lol
lol, you’re a smutty old rag juju, that’s why i love you. ;)
ET: dont you mean SCISSOR sister. To be extra superly blunt, of course. For some reason I am all about the caps today. :)
Me too, I am addicted to capitalizationizing.
