On ‘The Martha Stewart Show’ , host Martha Stewart welcomed back the hilarious Rosie O’Donnell. The long-time friends chatted about Rosie’s new book, ‘Crafty-U,’ and demoed two fun and inventive projects that adults and children can do together – painted sneakers and a magical bean mosaic.
Rosie on her time at ‘The View’:
RO: I haven’t worked since 2002. Aside from ‘The View’…let’s not mention it. Anyway…
MS: You did really well on ‘The View’.
RO: I tried my best but it’s hard for me when I’m not the boss. There was people there telling me what to do. There was a little republican who scared me.
Martha on Celebrity Jeopardy:
RO: You should go on Jeopardy.
MS: I did.
RO: How did you do on Jeopardy?
MS: I won.
RO: I bet you did.
MS: I went on Celebrity Jeopardy.
RO: Who were you against?
MS: Well, it wasn’t that difficult…
RO: Tell me, who?
MS: I was on it with a baseball player…the host of Survivor, and he thought he was going to win.
Rosie on her new book, ‘Crafty-U’:
RO: But here’s the thing about this book – it’s to teach people how to play with their kids. It’s not really about the perfection. You know, like you. You’re always well put together. You’re always perfect.
Martha on a craft from Rosie’s new book, ‘Crafty-U’:
MS: ‘Heidi’s Yummy Easter Eggs’…
RO: That’s my sister’s idea.
MS: Oh, those are cute.
RO: Yeah, she worked for you.
MS: Oh, she did?
RO: Yeah, but she had babies. It wasn’t her fault. You didn’t fire her.
Rosie on her invention the “hadIT”:
RO: Do you ever wear something to keep the glue out of your hair when you’re crafting?
MS: Oh, no.
RO: This is an invention. I invented it. I call it the “hadIT”. When you’ve ‘had it’, you put this on. I shaved the back of my head so it would fit nice.
MS: Oh, are you going to sell those?
RO: Yeah. We’re selling them but nobody enjoys them besides me. I made like 10,000 of them.
MS: I think they’re cute! There’s no reason why you can’t sell this.
RO: Really? Do you think it’s too bright, the color?
MS: Yes. For me, yes.
RO: I knew it. There was an error.
Rosie on her college experience:
RO: I dropped out of school. I had a 1.62 grade point average. You know what that is? That’s a D-.
MS: Yeah, that’s no so good. They don’t want you to stay if you’re not really trying.
RO: Nope. They didn’t want me to stay.
MS: But she [Rosie] tried in other things…and I don’t think she [Rosie] did so badly.
RO: What happened was, I started working at the comedy clubs when I was in Boston at Boston University, so then I couldn’t get up in the morning for all my classes.
MS: Of course not. How could you?
RO: Right. I had priorities.
