It’s May 7, 1998, and I am sitting in a friend’s house in New York City a day after taping the Rosie O’Donnell show. At the moment, the show is going to air on July 20, but that may change. When the date is firm, it will appear in my schedule.
Ever since Rosie sent me a letter about her experiences years ago, I have counted her among the celebrities that I couldn’t talk about but wished I could. But what she says on her show has changed all that. When the show airs, this country is going to be amazed by one woman’s courage, strength of character and sterling honesty. It will be a moment never to be forgotten.
