Rosie O'Donnell Engaged To Girlfriend Michelle Rounds
Self-deprecating and punny comedian Rosie O’Donnell has some new news that will likely boost her self-esteem. The 49 year-old mother and The Rosie Show host has kept busy with memoirs and radio programs in recent years, finally making a talk show comeback on The Oprah Winfrey Channel this past fall. Luckily, she hasn’t been too busy to woo girlfriend Michelle Rounds – the couple went public in September and O’Donnell has since been open about the relationship. Over the weekend, the happy pair took the relationship one step further and got engaged.
The first indication of O’Donnell and Rounds’ engagement came Friday when O’Donnell tweeted a photo of Rounds fingering a ring on her left hand. Today, THR is reporting a representative for O’Donnell has officially confirmed the engagement. You can check out a better view of Round’s shapely ring over at Twitter. No date for the wedding has yet been set.
O’Donnell’s fiancé is an IT Headhunter. The two met initially in a Starbucks, with O’Donnell confirming in an interview with Nightline that “her gaydar was way off.” It seems to have worked out for the talk show host. Although her former partnership with Kelli Carpenter, whom O’Donnell has four children with did not work out so perfectly, O’Donnell seems like she has taken the challenges thrown at her in her life pretty steadfastly and would be a pretty solid partner. Pop Blend wishes the happy couple well and the author is keeping her finger's crossed the wedding plans do not become too strenuous (she knows all about that). Everyone deserves a little marital bliss.
