Rosie O'Donnell didn't have to wait in line at Valley Forge Military Academy during son Parker's move-in Thursday. About 300 other parents did, says a VFMA parent who felt that the comedian got preferential treatment at registration day.
Asked about O'Donnell's VIP treatment, a VFMA rep said there was no preferential treatment.
"All students and their families are encouraged to complete and submit their paperwork in advance, available on the school website," said Jennifer Myers, a school spokeswoman. "By doing so, families will reduce their wait time significantly and can expedite the registration process at each of the required stations. This is true for all arriving cadets."
O'Donnell has said on her SiriusXM satellite-radio show that she hopes to persuade Parker, who is starting 11th grade, to change his mind about joining the military after graduation.
