The former talk show host replied to a fan on Twitter on Wednesday
“BUT @ Rosie IS A Perfect Mom,” Lisa Maracso Tweeted. “How can this be?”
“No mom is perfect – we all do our best,” O’Donnell replied.
O’Donnell’s 17-year-old daughter went missing from her family’s Nyack, New York, home on Aug. 11. She was found in New Jersey on Tuesday, after the former View host contacted police and Tweeted a public appeal for help.
Chelsea, who O’Donnell revealed suffers from mental illness and had gone off her medication, was missing for an entire week, a source tells PEOPLE, and was found in the home of an alleged heroin addict whom she met online.
“Rosie is very concerned about the guy she was found with,” the source added. “Rosie is extremely concerned about everything and is trying to figure out what to do next.”
