The drama around Rosie O’Donnell and her adopted daughter Chelsea continues. Chelsea left home when she was 18 and moved in with her biological mother, Deanna Micoley. It turns out Chelsea stayed with Deanna for a week before moving in with Steven Sheerer, the guy she was found with when Rosie claimed Chelsea had run away while she was still 17. Deanna is now speaking out.
Deanna has made it clear in past interviews that she never wanted to give Chelsea up for adoption and continues to insist that Rosie adopted Chelsea illegally, which Rosie denies. Deanna said:
I’ve always wanted her. I’m just so happy she’s part of my life now.”
However, something has happened: Deanna and Chelsea are not on speaking terms now, either. Deanna said:
I want to be a part of her life. I want to see her walk down the aisle. I want to be there when she has her first baby. I just want to be her mom.”
I wonder what happened between Deanna and Chelsea? Maybe she isn’t a fan of Steven either? Remember what being 18 is like: you think you know everything.
Hopefully Chelsea will be able to have a good relationship with some adult in her life besides Steven. It sounds like Deanna is there if Chelsea needs her. Here’s a clip of Deanna’s interview with Inside Edition.
