Rosie O'Donnell responds to daughter's not 'normal' upbringing

Rosie O’Donnell has jokingly threatened to ‘tell a few secrets’ about her daughter Vivienne after the 19-year-old said she didn’t have a ‘normal’ upbringing.

“Vivi, what do you mean I didn’t do anything normal?” the comedian, 60, asked in a TikTok Video Thursday. “I did normal things. I’m normal. I’m completely normal.

She then joked, “Jeez, Viv. I’ll tell some secrets about you!

The teenager told his TikTok followers earlier today that life with O’Donnell “never” followed standard protocol.

“No offense, Mom,” Vivienne said. “She just didn’t really inform us [about] really anything.

“Once I find [things] outside, she’d be like, ‘Vivi, come on, you know that. Like, you know that,” she continued. “She did so much for me, and I’m incredibly, incredibly grateful to her, but one thing she didn’t do is normal.”

Vivienne shared an example of one of those moments in “story time” pictures posted earlier that same day.

“At my birthday parties, this beautiful woman always came, and I was like, ‘Yeah, there’s Mo,'” the teenager explained. “I never had a clue who she was. … Then I found out it was Madonna all these years.

She noted that “it was the same with Oprah [Winfrey].”

Vivienne is the youngest of O’Donnell’s four children with ex-wife Kelli Carpenter. The former couple are also parents to sons Parker, 27, and Blake, 22, and daughter Chelsea, 24.

O’Donnell is also mum to daughter Dakota, 9, whom she shared with second wife Michelle Rounds, who passed away in September 2017 at 46 years old.
