  • -You mentioned your son Blake.

  • I believe -- you know, obviously we have great respect

  • and appreciation for our essential workers

  • during this really scary time.

  • Your son Blake was one of those, yes?

  • -Yes, he was working at a grocery store for the first,

  • like, month and a half.

  • And I was panicky and saying to him,

  • "Please, my son, come home."

  • Now my other son, my oldest son, who's 24, is in the Marines.

  • And as much as I say that to him,

  • he can't come home, you know? -Right.

  • -I say the same thing to him every day.

  • "Parker, can't you come home?" "Mom, I'm in the Marines!"

  • "I'm aware, sweetheart.

  • But isn't there, like, a mommy neurosis leave

  • that you could get for the next few days?"

  • So he did. He worked at the grocery store.

  • And then he started to get a little nervous

  • when I kept saying, "You have to wear a mask.

  • Tell them you have to wear a mask."

  • And there was some kind of discussion at work

  • whether masks would be appropriate at the time.

  • You know, now everyone there wears masks.

  • But he's not doing it anymore.

  • I got him to take a leave of absence

  • until the pandemic's done.

  • -You -- you've been active

  • on a lot of social media during this.

  • And you and your daughter have been doing stuff on TikTok.

  • Have you enjoyed your foray into TikTok?

  • -Well, it's hard to find a TikTok that's, like,

  • not going to make people horrified at the language.

  • -Sure. -It's, like, the worst rappers,

  • noise that you can -- you know?

  • And then we found one that wasn't exactly, like, crude.

  • But it had a -- bing bing bing bing bing!

  • Which I didn't think sounded like gunshots.

  • Not that I know the sound of gunshots.

  • But I was doing, "Bing bing bing bing bing," whatever,

  • and people are writing in, "How dare you do that?"

  • I'm like, I'm in the middle of a pandemic with a 17-year-old

  • trying to make her happy, please, you know?

  • That should be the least of our worries.

  • But they're fun. Some of them are so creative.

  • It's really shocking when you get down that TikTok wormhole.

  • -Yeah, no, it's incredible some of the things

  • people are doing there.

  • Do you have all of your -- so you mentioned you've got

  • obviously one in the Marines.

  • Do you have all your other children with you right now?

  • -Three of them. I have three of the five.

  • The 7-year-old, 17, and 20.

  • And then my 22-year-old is in Wisconsin, has a baby.

  • And then Parker's in the Marines in North Carolina right now.

  • -How are -- how do a 20-year-old,

  • a 17-year-old, and a 7-year-old get along together right now?

  • -They're really separate countries.

  • -Yeah. -Everyone's in their own room.

  • And there's not a lot of talk until,

  • "What do you want to order for dinner?"

  • Then they all come down, and we have a good 15 minutes.

  • They take their food and go back to their hovels, you know?

  • I mean, everyone's kind of really isolating within it,

  • unless I make a big stink and say,

  • "You know, we're still a family, even though this is a pandemic!"

  • They're like, "Mom's off the rails again.

  • Let's get to the kitchen."

  • -It was funny in the early days of this,

  • I was saying to my friends who had older kids, like,

  • "I think I'm really lucky because mine are two and four,

  • so they're not that scared.

  • And they're enjoying spending time with their parents."

  • But now, man, what I wouldn't give for some teenagers

  • who didn't want to spend any time with me.

  • Because... -Yeah, I understand.

  • My 7-year-old, the same thing.

  • She's like Velcro on me.

  • I can't get her off me, you know?

  • And she's not so into her Zoom listening from the teachers.

  • So, you know, it's pretty much all day

  • that she is demanding of your attention.

  • She kind of loves it. She's like,

  • "This is great not having to go to school

  • and getting to play with you all the time, Mommy."

  • -Yeah. -I'm like, "Yeah, really great."

  • -It will be a very strange thing for my children

  • to look back on, that weird, you know --

  • however many months it turns out to be that we all

  • just spent all this time together.

  • You know, I can't imagine, you know --

  • I think in time they'll understand how awful it was.

  • But you know, in the moment, they're really digging it.

  • -Yeah. They'll probably never remember it.

  • -Yeah, that's true. -Yeah.

  • -Hey, I want to talk about your great new miniseries.

  • We'll be right back with more Rosie O'Donnell.

-You mentioned your son Blake.
