In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Chelsea O’Donnell says the May 2015 attack was the beginning of two years of ups and downs with her mother which has culminated in an estrangement she now feels is irreparable.
Chelsea also revealed that she and boyfriend Nick Alliegro, 31, secretly got married last July after she found out she was pregnant.
But the newlyweds suffered a devastating blow weeks later when Chelsea had a miscarriage.
‘I told Rosie about the miscarriage but she never seemed to care or even asked any questions, like it didn’t matter to her,’ Nick told DailyMail.com.
Chelsea, who was adopted by O’Donnell when she was a baby, says problems with her mother began shortly before her 18th birthday in August 2015. Three months earlier, she had the word ‘Breathe’ tattooed on her side. O’Donnell was incensed.
‘It was pretty late at night,’ Chelsea said. ‘A couple of weeks prior, I had gotten a tattoo. She [O’Donnell] had spyware on my phone so she could see pretty much everything I did.
‘She called me into her room and asked me about the tattoo. I denied it. ‘She asked me to take off my clothes – she didn’t know where it was – to show her and I refused.
‘She picked up a wine bottle and started chasing me, trying to take off my clothes.
‘She told me if I didn’t show her, if I tried to leave, that she would hit me with the wine bottle, call the police and tell them that I had attacked her.
‘She was holding it above her head and coming after me in her room. She kept trying to run after me and saying that if she really wanted to she could kill me, she’s that strong.
‘She ended up pulling my shirt up and seeing it. Then I left. I didn’t see her for the rest of the night.’
Chelsea said that the wine bottle was in O’Donnell’s room ‘because she was drinking as she did frequently’.
The TV star, 55, didn’t hit her but ‘she came really close,’ Chelsea said. The teen didn’t go to the hospital with injuries nor did she contact the police.
‘I felt it was her word against mine and why wouldn’t they believe her over me?’ Chelsea said.
‘I didn’t go to the police because of who she is. She would have tried to say I was crazy and they just wouldn’t believe me.’
