Is Rosie O'Donnell a bad parent? Her estranged wife sure thinks so

In the latest installment of the terrible claims coming out of the Rosie O'Donnell divorce proceedings, O'Donnell's wife is now making some bold and shocking allegations.

Michelle Rounds, O'Donnell's estranged wife, is seeking full custody of the couple's 2-year-old daughter, and the allegations have been flying about failed parenting and prenups. But now TMZ is reporting that sources close to Rounds say her custody battle has nothing to do with money and everything to do with O'Donnell being an unfit parent.

The Rounds camp is now alleging O'Donnell "drinks a bottle of wine nearly every night, regularly smokes weed and eat edibles." And they say these recreational activities get in the way of her parenting.

In addition to her own bad behaviors, Rounds claims O'Donnell allows her 19-year-old son to throw parties where other underage children also drink.

Sources close to O'Donnell claim Rounds is making these shocking statements in an attempt to extort more money out of the former talk show host. Rounds categorically claims this allegation is false, saying she is a millionaire herself because of lucrative investments in the stock market.

It doesn't seem like this messy divorce or the crazy allegations will be slowing down anytime soon.

Just like all the other recent ugly high-profile celebrity divorces, such as that of Kate and Jon Gosselin, let's hope the adults in these situations think about the young people and children involved and do what is actually best for each of them.
