Michelle Rounds: Rosie O’Donnell needs to be drug tested. The estranged wife wants the 53-year-old comedian to submit to random drug testing until their custody war is resolved, according to The Inquisitr. The former couple are in a custody battle over daughter Dakota.

The 43-year-old former IT consultant was makeup free and in a very serious mood when she gave a recent interview about her divorce. She started off talking about the divorce documents, which claim Rosie drinks a bottle of red wine every night and smokes “weed.”

“I didn’t say that, but the truth will prevail in court,” Rounds said. “I used to be afraid of Rosie but I am not afraid of Rosie anymore,” the beauty said while leaving a drugstore. “Because I want what’s best for Dakota. And what’s best for Dakota is to be with me. I am the better mother.”

She then went on to say, “Divorce is really hard, but imagine going through a divorce with a celebrity who is really, really powerful, someone who has all the media and publicists behind them.”

Michelle Rounds wants Rosie to be drug tested, but she seemed almost on the verge of tears as she added, “I am just a normal person. It is David versus Goliath. I just don’t understand it.”

When asked about a social media post made by O’Donnell on Tuesday where there is a photo of their child Dakota and the caption reads, “Excuse me - don’t I get a vote?” suggesting the young girl has never been asked who she wants to live with, Michelle said, “I thought that was an odd choice.” And she firmly stated that she would never do such a thing, according to New York Daily News.

“No way, I would never put… it’s like using her as a pawn. No I wouldn’t have done it,” Michelle added.

As Michelle Rounds wants Rosie to be drug tested, she was again seen with sexy model Carmen Ortega, this time at trendy Japanese restaurant Katsuya in Hollywood. Carmen, who used to date Kim Kardashian’s ex Reggie Bush, was wearing a very revealing black tank top and skintight jeans with heels. Rounds was more covered up in an oversized white blouse, though she showed off her toned legs in skinny jeans.

Michelle Rounds Leaves With Carmen

On Wednesday Rounds was pictured leaving LA restaurant Madera hand-in-hand with Carmen. They left in the same car.

Earlier in the day, Ortega was seen at Starbucks in Studio City. She oddly was wearing a dark beige sheer dress, the same type Kim, 34, wore in June 2014.

On Wednesday Michelle Rounds said she doesn’t like O’Donnell’s parenting style and that is why she is seeking sole custody of their daughter. It was also alleged that in those papers, Michelle has stated Rosie let their 19-year-old son “throw parties where the kids all drink, which she believes is irresponsible.”

Rosie O’Donnell’s Rep Responds

“This is a distorted perception of Michelle’s reality. It’s sad in every way,” Rosie’s rep said.

But then Rounds responded, “It makes me feel sad that it has come to this - that Rosie and her publicist feel like they need to do this character assassination.”

Rounds, who was married to Rosie for three years before their official February split, also said that if she raised their child Dakota, the living situation would be in a heathier and “more protective” environment. This is another reason why Michelle Rounds wants Rosie to be drug tested.

“I just want my child to have the best possible environment to grow up in, a normal life. Right now she’s got 24/7 nannies over there at Rosie’s house. I don’t want my child to have a 24/7 nanny,” Rounds said. “She leaves the baby overnight with nannies, she has the monitor in the nanny’s room.”

As Michelle Rounds wants Rosie drug tested, she did say they clashed when it came to their parenting styles, which contributed to their split. They officially split just two weeks after the TV star quit The View to focus on her family and health.

Rosie O’Donnell has yet to publicly comment, though she posted a photo on Tuesday of Dakota with her hand in the air, captioned, “excuse me - do i get a vote?”

In response to the photo, Rounds said: “At two-and-a-half-years old, I’m not quite sure a child should be asked those questions.”

O’Donnell and Rounds met in the summer of 2011 at a Starbucks. They struck up conversation as Rounds had a dog in her arms and O’Donnell was interested in getting another one.

Drug Tested

While Michelle Rounds wants Rosie to be drug tested, it will still be up to a judge, notes FOX News. The former couple, who have a prenuptial agreement, married in June 2012 and adopted Dakota the following year. They quietly split in November 2014 and were separated for a few months before filing for divorce in February, citing “an irretrievably broken relationship.”
