Rosie Bites Back

It seems Rosie O’Donnell is as sassy with her doctors as she is with her talk-show guests, especially when the medical topic turns to her figure. “A doctor once told me, ‘Rosie, you’re overweight,'” O’Donnell recounts in the June issue of Marie Claire magazine. “She goes: ‘Here’s what you have to do. Instead of eating Oreos, eat carrots. Cut them up and put them in a baggie and during the day when you’re hungry, eat those carrots . . . I said to that doctor, ‘It’s so insulting of you to think that you just cured obesity in America. Thank you. You’re a genius. Fat people had no idea that carrots are better for you than Ring Dings. Who knew?'”
