Everything is Rosie

Rosie O'Donnell, the former talk show host, actress, lesbian mom and a candid blogger, can certainly duck, weave and bob her way through a conversation. But she was caught off-guard by a reporter at a press event for "All Aboard! Rosie's Family Cruise," a new documentary about the first-ever cruise for gay families. Did she intend to raise her children to be gay?, the reporter asked.
"I was shocked," Ms. O'Donnell said recently, curled on the sofa of her cluttered Times Square office. "I said, 'I can't raise them to be gay any more than I can raise them to be tall.' "
"Maybe people will get a chance to see what they're afraid of," Ms. Donnell, 44, said of the 90-minute "All Aboard!," to be broadcast on HBO Thursday. "The illusion about gay people is that it's all about sex. What unites us on this cruise is not that we're gay, but that we're parents."
