Celebrity detox is a look at Rosie O'Donnell's climb to fame and the experiences along the way that slowly led her to realize that fame was a dangerous addiction, a potent powder that, once inhaled, brings about both loss of self and a need for more, more, more. This is Rosie's story of the years after she walked away from her top-rated TV show in 2002, and her reasons for going back on the air in 2006. She illuminates not only what it's like to be a celebrity, but also what it's like to be a human being.

Rosie O'Donnell is really a whiner. She wants it all and is disappointed by it all. She blames the world for all her problems. She even blames her own mother for dying. On the other hand she thinks Barbra Streisand is the greatest person who ever lived. Streisand gets mentioned on page 1 and repeatedly through this book. It's not that Rosie's book is bad, it's just really boring. She needs to grow up and take responsibility for her life. She also needs to learn that the world was not created for her own private use and personal happiness. She keeps saying how lucky she is. It sure would be nice if she showed some real appreciation for all that she has. Bottom line: I found this book a waste of time. This is the first autobiography I've read where I thought LESS of the person after reading their book.
