Remember when Rosie O'Donnell did her first interview about her new girlfriend? She had said the only reason Rosie even talked to her was because she assumed she was straight. Well, it turns out the girlfriend's parents also thought she was straight and had no idea their daughter liked other women until Rosie started talking about it on Howard Stern. Is that something Rosie should have done? Wouldn't you want to be the one to tell your own parents? Apparently Rosie also said she had met both parents of her girlfriend but really only met the mom and I guess when they met the mom they did not share the lesbian part? Maybe Rosie did not know that her girlfriend had not shared with the parents. Awkward.

I think a big part of this is that Rosie's girlfriend's family are very conservative and finding out their daughter prefers women over men was a huge shock and then finding out that the outspoken Rosie is the woman their daughter prefers was probably another huge shock. I say they will get over it. I also think perhaps the entire family should sit down this holiday season and hug it out over some eggnog.
