ROSIE O'DONNELL'S estranged daughter has thrown her mom under the bus. You may recall how Rosie's daughter Chelsea went missing for nearly two weeks in August. Chelsea said Rosie knew she was going to leave, so she kicked her out. Chelsea also said of Rosie, "I find her not genuine a lot of the time. When we'd go out, she was a completely different person in public than at home." Chelsea also said family meals were mostly ordering in pizza or Chinese food and that Rosie was always coming into her kids' rooms and asking if they had candy. She also said that Rosie wears tight Spandex shorts and a T-shirt around the house and never wears makeup unless someone comes to do it for her. A rep for Rosie didn't deny the allegations, but only said the situation with Chelsea is "heartbreaking on every level."

Imagine their surprise when they broke down the door and found someone inside the apartment. That someone was Joselene's ex-roommate, who informed officers she no longer lived there.
