Lunch Break Video: Rosie O’Donnell tells how “It Got Better” for her: “Believe in yourself”
No matter how many times she quits The View or how many times she gets divorces, Rosie O’Donnell just reels me in any time she’s on the screen telling her story.
Rosie made a video for the It Got Better series and I’m so moved by her story of being starved for love and affection after he mother died when Rosie was 10.
Most moving is the 8th grade teacher who took Rosie under her wing and made her a teacher’s aide.
‘She loved me back to life,’ she says of the teacher. ‘She nurtured me and gave me what it was I needed – to be seen, to be cared about. And she taught me that love makes a family, not blood.’
