Rosie O'Donnell showed compassion to troubled star Britney Spears on her new blog entry Tuesday.
The former View cohost compared the pop princess to Princess Diana in a tale-like entry.
"There are only inches of separation between vulnerability and disaster," O'Donnell says. Although the 45-year-old opinionated TV personality did not mention Spears' name, it was obvious that it was the singer who she's referring to.
"'I'm scared,' she told them yesterday, when they later mobbed her at court. 'Move back,' she said. 'I'm scared. Stop it. Stop it. I want to get back in the car. Just stop it. Let me get in the car, please.'"
"She will be trying to get away, but they will chase her, just as they chased her into that church yester. Even her last-minute, folded-hand prayers can't be kept sacred."
O'Donnell also mentioned Spears' lack of childhood. "Where were the sidewalk-skinned knees, the chalk-stained hands, the monkey bars, the passed notes? A Disney set is not a childhood, no matter how many bright colors they use, or how cheerful the script."
