| Rosie: Memoir Won't Be "Vindictive"
has had "an interesting year," she confided Sunday, and a lot of it will be in her new book, "Celebrity Detox," coming this fall.
Speaking at a breakfast gathering at BookExpo America, the publishing industry's annual national convention, O'Donnell
said her long-delayed memoir on fame will not be "vindictive" or "mean-spirited," but will offer a candid look at her very public life, including her brief, battling stint on "The View."
"It is, in fact, a drug," she said of fame, and spoke of seeing peers so radically, and scarily, transformed by celebrity that they looked like victims of "crystal meth."
