I find it interesting that yesterday on her blog someone asked what she thought the most important thing to teach children was and she answered "compassion"...I wonder if that includes compassion for those w/ PA or not???

Well, and she *can* pay someone to move a mountain if she had to. I cannot help but say she is not raising her children in the real world, as much as she might like to think she is. I know she grew up in a regular life, with all the troubles and heartaches one could have, but now her life is very protected and she handpicks people to care for her kids at all times. Just not facing the day to day, having to trust strangers, with her kids.
She will never have a clue about that. No "star" ever will. I know they face stalkers, paparazzi and such as well, which I could never imagine, but you get my point... They are just not in the real world on any level.
I used to be a big fan, but she does seem angry and sarcastic these days, though I honestly have not seen her on the View. I have just seem clips on the entertainment shows. I was very disappointed to read this thread and see her comments about PA. becca

oh, fah. just "feel good" words. Children learn by example. [i]Big golf clap for Rosie[/i]. (sarcasm intended)
What gets me is how people with so much and so little worries can say or do such a [i]selfish[/i] petty thing. And if she has worries and concerns, she probably has more resources and support than the rest of us to deal with them.
They say money doesn't cure character flaws, but hey, I'd love to test the theory. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/cool.gif[/img]

I wrote Rosie. I too used to like her but lately she seems to have her own agenda. I wonder if she even cares that she's hearing about this. Maybe we should be writing to ABC instead of her?

I think Jenna has a really good point about writing to ABC instead of Rosie!

i agree with Jenna. i have read on this thread that several of us have writen to Rosie on her blog and I don't see them posted there. It looks like she posts what she feels like. ABC might be a better choice

i take that to mean that she thinks "amy" is overreacting and/or hysterical and that she should lighten up. i could be wrong...but that's what the comment sounds like to me. very flippant, like "geez, take a deep breath. it's not a big deal."
i would imagine the comment also included the dreaded "eyeroll" we are all so accustomed to at times. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
i had hoped rosie would come through...looks like i may have been wrong. darn.

I had hoped Rosie would come through also...
I'm starting to feel she absolutely won't...
I already feel so let down by Rosie- I'm starting to think the rosie on the view is going to be quite different from the Rosie on her show- very disapointing for me...
Let's write ABC
