Rosie Complains About Publisher Typos

Okay, when there are mistakes on the hardcover jacket, misspellings and such, it does kind of suck and make everybody look bad. But Rosie O’Donnell‘s tongue-lashing of Grand Central Publishing, as reported by Access Hollywood, seems just a bit over the top. “So i just got my first hard copy of my new book CELEBRITY DETOX there on the front flap in print ‘when rosie odonnells (sic) mother was diagnosed with cancer in 1968, ten year old rosie thought fame could cure her,’ i was born in 1962 my mother was diagnosed in 1973 WTF!” the actress and former THE VIEW moderator wrote on her website. “I want to scream NO ONIONS at every one (sic),” Rosie typed. “this book has been more of a pain in the a** than it was worth.”

Maybe, but sleeve replacements are doable since the book won’t be in stores till early October. Then again, Rosie – once considered to be the “Queen of Nice” back in her morning talk-show days – certainly has a penchant for flipping out at people and getting upset at publications bearing her name.
