I grew up watching Rosie O’ Donnell‘s career unfold and blossom. I remember seeing her with long curly hair wearing Hip-Hop clothing as she hosted late night stand-up comedy shows on VH1. I remember seeing her in the movie “Harriet the Spy” when I was a tween, laughed when she got her own show and years later I still call people a “cutie-patootie“. I remember when she came out of the closet as a lesbian and the reaction the public had. I remember her as “The Queen of Nice“. She was/is an idol of mine. She showed me that an over-weight, plain-looking, funny-girl (like myself) could succeed without selling out.
Thanks to BlueWater Productions, Rosie O finally got to tell her side of the story in her own comic, “Female Force: Rosie O’Donnell”. With funny artwork and a gripping story, told by an illustrated Rosie, this is a story everyone should read. For me, reading through her comic book was like a walk through my youth. I remember where I was when certain things happened in Rosie’s life, like her famous fight with Donald Trump (*rolls eyes*).
You should definitely give this one a read. I was a fan before I read this comic, but now I’m just in awe of how amazing a person Rosie O really is, especially with all she has been through and survived.
Kudos to Darren Davis & BlueWater on this one. Bravo! This is def. a must-read!
