Here Come Future Brides Rosie O’Donnell and Michelle Rounds
Rosie O’Donnell shocked her audience during a taping of ‘The Rosie Show’ on Monday with a little special announcement — she’s engaged. E! News did the leg work in confirming the news with one of O’Donnell’s reps.
The boisterous and sometimes outspoken host plans to wed her girlfriend Michelle Rounds, but no date has been set yet.
Even though O’Donnell tapes her show in Chicago, same-sex marriage is not legal in Illinois. It’s possible the couple will end up in New York, where they could legally tie the knot and O’Donnell could tape “on the road” episodes of her show. They could also make a short trip to neighboring state Iowa to get hitched.
This will be the second marriage for O’Donnell who wed her longtime partner Kelli Carpenter in 2004, and with whom she has four children with.
