Rosie O’Donnell Says ‘Things Have Been Rough’ for Her Family: I Feel ‘Joan Crawford Was Framed’

The 28th GLAAD Media Awards in N.Y.C. had a very special surprise guest this year: Rosie O’Donnell.

The actress and television personality took the stage Saturday at the New York Hilton Midtown to bestow the Vito Russo Award upon Broadway star and longtime friend Billy Porter, opening her speech with a very honest personal admission.

“Things have been rough in my family in the last week. Let’s just say I feel strongly Joan Crawford was framed,” said O’Donnell, 55, likely referring to the late actress’s strained relationship with her older children, as chronicled in Mommie Dearest.

O’Donnell didn’t speak further on the details of the recent troubles in her family, which in the past included an estrangement from daughter Chelsea, 19. As of March, the twosome were not on speaking terms, although they reconciled last summer after Chelsea ran away from home at 17 and subsequently married plumber Nicholas Alliegro, who is 12 years her senior.

On Wednesday, O’Donnell shared a cryptic post on Instagram: a poem including such lines as “i struck back when u kicked my chest” and “a trick by nick, mommy is too smart.”

“2:06 – r u up? all this time – just minutes away … miscarriage? no idea – him still – sad really – HE put u out – more than once – should i brace for impact – u got more to say – make a home chelsea – this one u never liked,” O’Donnell captioned the post.

In early March, Chelsea told Inside Edition that, “the last time we got into an argument, we ended up screaming at each other and I left the room,” saying she was “done” after O’Donnell kicked her out of the house.

“I would just want her to know that we’re doing really great and we’re happy,” Chelsea added, saying she’d “someday” like to have a better relationship with O’Donnell: “I hope.”

Melissa Joan Hart And Ryan Reynolds Were *This* Close To Dating In The ’90s

Long before he was Deadpool or the proud Mr. Blake LivelyRyan Reynolds was a young actor cast as the bad boy love interest of Melissa Joan Hart in the 1996 TV movie “Sabrina The Teenage Witch.” 

Here he is tossing a volleyball to Sabrina while rocking some very ‘90s, very bouncy surfer hair:

Though their characters don’t end up together in the movie, there was apparently some real-life magic happening between Hart and Reynolds on set. 

“We were smitten and cute,” the 40-year-old actress said on Australia’s “Studio 10 talk show last week. “He was adorable. He was a really nice guy.”

The teenage romance wasn’t meant to be, though. 

“I had a boyfriend at the time,” she explained. “[He] probably would have been a great boyfriend. And I didn’t end up with the other guy, so maybe I should have taken a chance!”

“He wasn’t like, the Ryan Reynolds everybody knows these days,” she said. “You can see in the clip the crazy hair. He was sweet — he was very sweet.” 

Hart’s recent admission about Reynolds sounds a lot more tame than what she described to E! host Guiliana Rancic in 2014.

As the ‘90s TV queen told it then, the two shared a little makeout sesh after Reynolds bought her a Bulova watch on their last day of shooting.

“I chased him down, got in front of his car and just kissed him and then made out with him all night,” she said. “Then I had to call my boyfriend the next day and explain it.”

Then what happened? Clarissa, explain it all

“[Ryan] came to New York to visit me,” she said.“But I think he wanted something more but I decided I was going to stick with my boyfriend.”

Oh. Well, that was anticlimactic.  

Though Reynolds hasn’t commented on the on-set romance, his wife Blake Lively is apparently aware of the kiss. 

“She did know, actually,” Hart told People magazine when asked about it last year. “She reached out to me via email to help her with a birthday present for Ryan!”

Hm, maybe a Bulova watch?

Joan Lunden Opens Up About Her ‘Emotional Breakdown’ After Cancer Treatment

It’s been one year since veteran TV host Joan Lunden heard the words that completely changed her life: “You have cancer.” Since then, she’s appeared in all her beautiful, bald glory on the cover of People magazine, tested negative for any remaining cancer and launched ALIVE, an online TV network where women openly discuss their own battles with the disease.

But the picture isn’t completely rosy. On Wednesday, Lunden spoke with HuffPost Live’s Nancy Redd and fellow breast cancer survivor Anne Marie Giannino-Otis about the often-underestimated challenges of recovery after cancer treatment.

“There are all these things that nobody tells you about. Everybody is focused on losing your hair. Okay, that happens, but your hair actually grows back. … [But] there are a lot of other things that live on after, and certainly one of the biggest ones is the fear of recurrence,” Lunden said.

When Giannino-Otis noted that many women see their treatment as a “security blanket” and often confront new fear when it’s over, Lunden admitted that the most challenging part of her cancer battle has been the time since she ended treatment.

“I can tell you that I had a total emotional breakdown, and to me, the time since the treatment has been far harder,” Lunden said. “There’s a separation anxiety element to [ending treatment], but mainly it’s just … kind of like, ‘Okay, go now, and have a nice life and hope it’s all okay.’ And it’s really hard after that. I mean, I will tell you the most emotionally difficult time for me has been since my last day of treatment.”

Joan Rivers Death Investigation Says Clinic Made Multiple Errors During Medical Procedure

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York City clinic where Joan Rivers suffered a fatal complication during a medical procedure made several errors, including failing to keep proper medication records and snapping cellphone photos of her while she was unconscious, state health investigators said Monday.

Rivers, who was 81, died Sept. 4. New York City’s medical examiner found she died of brain damage due to lack of oxygen after she stopped breathing during an endoscopy days earlier.

A report released by the state Department of Health on Monday cited Yorkville Endoscopy for numerous deficiencies related to the Rivers case, although negligence is not alleged. The comedian’s death was classified as a therapeutic complication.

As a result of the state investigation, the federal Department of Health and Human Services has given Yorkville Endoscopy until Jan. 7 to correct deficiencies to avoid losing Medicare accreditation.

In a statement to NBC News on Monday, Yorkville said it has submitted a plan to state and federal accreditation agencies addressing all issues raised. It said the physicians referenced in the report no longer provide services there.

The state report said the Manhattan clinic “failed to identify deteriorating vital signs and provide timely intervention” in Rivers’ case.

Investigators found conflicting information in Rivers’ medical records regarding the amount of the sedation drug Propofol she was administered and about the time resuscitation was initiated. They also faulted the clinic for allowing a surgeon who was not a member of the medical staff to perform two nose and throat scoping procedures.

Investigators also noted that a staff member took cellphone photos of Rivers and a surgeon while she was under anesthesia without her consent and in violation of the facility’s cellphone policy.

Joan Jett, Tavi Gevinson, Natasha Lyonne And More Get Down To Get Out The Vote

Joan Jett wants women to vote in the upcoming midterm election — and who says no to Joan Jett? Exactly.

Created by the social rights platform the Department of Peace, the women’s rights PSA reminds all voters what’s at stake in the upcoming midterm election on Nov. 4. The star-studded cast includes Joan Jett, Tavi Gevinson, Natasha Lyonne, Max Greenfield and so many more celebrities urging women to get out and vote.

As the video states, women are not a voting block, women are the majority of voters, accounting for 53 percent of voters who turned out in 2012. There were more laws passed to limit women’s reproductive rights in 2013 than there has been in the past 10 years. If that’s not enough of a reason here are a few other facts from the Department of Peace that might get you to the voting booths:

  • 87 percent of all U.S. counties have no abortion provider.
  • 35 percent of American women will have an abortion by the age of 45.
  • In 13 states a pharmacist can legally refuse to dispense birth control, even if you have a prescription.
  • 26 states have waiting periods for abortion, while only 11 have waiting periods for guns.
  • In 32 states terminally ill women are forced to carry a pregnancy to term, regardless of her wishes or her living will.
  • More than 50 abortion clinics were shut down by unnecessary laws from 2010­-2013. Not including the dozens that were shut in Texas in the last month.

From a Fox News host recently suggesting that women excuse themselves from this midterm election and instead “go back on Tinder or” to single women voters being nicknamed “Beyoncé voters” — there has never been a better time to go out and vote.

“You don’t use birth control?” Rivers asked a young Cattrall, before making the actress promise that she would use condoms.

“That was one of my first television experiences,” Cattrall said on HuffPost Live. “She was so sweet to me.” The “Sex and the City” star then revealed that Rivers sent her an apology note and commended her for being such a good sport that night.

Thoughts on “Dim for Joan,” Playing House and Alli Mauzey

A big thing employers want to see on resumes is additional languages spoken. The only language I speak other than English is broken Yiddish. That’s obviously not on my resume, because who would care about that?! Except one person did, one night.

I met Joan Rivers once in my career. It was the mid-aughts. There was a rumor that she had written a new play that she wanted to bring to Broadway. I needed the scoop! I went to see her stand-up act and had press agent Ron Lasko introduce us. She was fine to me, nice even, but not focused. There were other people there and she was trying to talk to everyone at once, making my news investigation difficult. Then I said some Yiddish phrase — I don’t think to her directly, but she heard it. Upon that, she immediately perked up and zeroed in. She became the person we’ve all read about in the last week. I will forever remember it.

I never spoke to her after that and the play never came in. But I saw her frequently outside theaters. Countless actors told me how nice she was to them. While she was best known for stand-up and her comedic television gigs, she wanted to be an actress. She co-wrote a Broadway play in 1972 that she made her Broadway debut in. She later returned to the Great White Way in Broadway Bound, replacing Linda Lavin. Then, in 1994, she wrote and starred in Sally Marr… and her escorts. She received a Tony nomination for her performance. She was part of the community I live and work in.

So I understand the anger people have at the Broadway League for deciding not to dim the lights in her honor. I also understand the Broadway League not wanting to dim for every person who has ever received a Tony nomination. (I’m not sure when saving on electric bills became an honor worthy of a fight, but, got it, they want to make it special when it does happen.) However they just dimmed the lights for Robin Williams, who only appeared on Broadway twice, once with a stand-up act. Just like Rivers, he was not best known for his work in the theater. Unlike Rivers, he never received a Tony nomination and he was not known as a huge supporter of the community. So what makes him more worthy? That his last Broadway stage appearance was more recent? It doesn’t make sense. If the League wants to set standards that a person must meet before receiving the honor of the dimming of the lights, okay. Those standards can be set, but they haven’t been. Right now it’s just a group of people saying Rivers isn’t Broadway enough. Well, I’m part of the theater community, and I think she is. League member Jordan Roth is part of the community, and he thinks she is. The theaters he owns, Jujamcyn’s five Broadway houses, will dim their lights. And countless other members of the community, members of the Broadway League, think this decision is ridiculous. So why? Why make this stance against the public outcry? Why shun someone who so supported the theater? As Michael Riedel wrote in his touching tribute, she was even a theater critic. We all love our critics. Rivers should be recognized as the Broadway champion, and Tony-nominated fixture, she was.

As long as I’m talking about funny ladies and things I don’t understand, I’m going to again write about Playing House. Still no word from USA Network on renewal. I’m sure the network heads have seen all the Twitter comments and articles urging renewal, but they are apparently still debating. I can see some network executive is studying the numbers, commenting mentally about how they are worse than Sirens‘ numbers. I want to say again — Playing House is a show that USA did not promote well. You want a show that USA promoted really well? Satisfaction. Every time I have on USA, I see something about Satisfaction being sexy and addictive. It’s a very good campaign, especially for housewives. I wish USA had spent that much time promoting Playing House, even if they tried to promote that too as Fifty Shades of Grey. At least then people would have turned it on. This isn’t a show that had a huge debut and fell off because it was, um, Black Box. This is a show that needs time to grow by word-of-mouth. It hasn’t had all the time it needed. It needs a second season.

One other funny woman I want to talk about is Alli Mauzey. Years ago I left the Cry-Baby workshop saying the following: “The leads aren’t great. Hanke is good. Alli Mauzey is amazing. She is going to get a Tony nomination.” Well, I wasn’t wrong about Mauzey being wonderful onstage at the Marquis Theater, but, alas, the show was slammed and she was forgotten. She has gone on to be Glinda in Wicked (a pretty good gig) and I was also thrilled to see her in the Encores! staging of It’s a Bird… It’s a Plane… It’s Superman, singing “You’ve Got Possibilities.” Now she is in the off-Broadway musical Red Eye of Love. I’m not going to comment on the show itself, but I will say, in it, Mauzey again proves herself to be a genius musical theater comedy actress. I wish her all the success in the world. Hopefully she’ll be originating another role on Broadway at some point. If she does, please go catch her.

Broadway League, as a final note, I ask you to listen to the majority of people who support the theater. They are telling you to dim for Joan. Don’t make this a ganze megillah. Admit you were wrong and have the other theater owners join Jujamcyn in dimming their lights tomorrow night.

Follow me on Twitter @CaraJoyDavid and read my other work. Some of it is good.

This Is What Joan Rivers Hoped Her Funeral Would Look Like

Joan Rivers accomplished an incredible amount in her life, and it was apparent that she was always thinking of what was next to come.

As a woman of very particular tastes, Rivers knew exactly how she hoped her funeral would be when the day came, and she wrote about it in her 2012 book, “I Hate Everyone … Starting with Me.”

She was also a woman who loved the death reel at the Oscars:

A good death reel can almost compensate for five hours of French actors trying to make adorable acceptance speeches. One of my favorite things to do is guess which of the dead actors will get the most applause and who’s going to be surprisingly underappreciated. It’s tricky you can’t always tell. Some years the most applause go to whoever died young and tragically; other years it goes to the old and beloved. I really love it when the Academy leaves a deadie out of the reel and the error of omission becomes a huge cause célèbre. Remember a few years ago when they left Bea Arthur out of the death reel [at the Oscars]? Bea Arthur! How did they leave Bea Arthur out? She was in “Mame;” she was in “All in the Family;” she was in “Maude;” she was a “Golden Girl,” for God’s sake! Bea was not only one of Hollywood’s leading ladies, she was one of Hollywood’s leading men! There are still people talking about that horrible gaffe and to this day, in Beverly Hills, when the subject comes up, people say Bea Arthur’s name in a muffled whisper like they used to do when they said “cancer.”

Rivers died on Sept. 4 at the age of 81 following complications from a procedure on her vocal cords. Her actual funeral is planned for Sept. 7 at Temple Emanu-El in Manhattan, the temple’s spokeswoman Elizabeth Fezrine told CNN. Details, including the time and if the public will be invited to attend, are not known at this time.

Joan Rivers: A Piece Of Work (blu-ray Disc)

Joan Rivers: A Piece Of Work (blu-ray Disc)

Joan Rivers launched her career as a standup comic in the early ’60s, a time when female comedians were few and far between, and after several years of working nightclubs to unresponsive audiences, she was booked on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1965 and soon became one of the most successful comedy acts in the nation. Since then, Rivers has hosted several TV talk shows, written best-selling books, directed a feature film, launched a line of jewelry, and kept up a busy schedule of personal appearances, determined to hold on to her stardom regardless of the fickle winds of show business. Filmmakers Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg followed Rivers through a typically eventful year in her life, and in Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, they offer a look at the woman behind the laughter as she struggles to stay in the spotlight, works on new material, launches a one-woman show in the United Kingdom that doesn’t fare as well as she hopes, takes a chance as a participant on a reality TV show, and ponders her career in show business at the age of 75. Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work received its world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
