Rosie to marry again

Talk show host met future wife this summer; wedding reportedly set for the holidays

Rosie O’Donnell is taking a second chance at marriage, according to ABCNews.com.

O’Donnell — who has a new show on the Oprah Winfrey Network — met her future wife Michelle Rounds this summer at a Starbucks, and went public in September. According to US Magazine, the host of ‘The Rosie Show’ and the younger head hunter for a New York I.T. company will marry over the holidays.

“I thought she was a 28-year-old heterosexual girl, because that’s what she looked like to me. And she’s a 40-year-old gay woman,” O’Donnell, 49, told Nightline’s Cynthia McFadden in October. ”My gaydar was way off!”

O’Donnell married her long-time girlfriend, former Nickelodeon marketing executive Kelli Carpenter, in 2004 in San Francisco after being introduced to one another in 1997 by Rosie’s brother Daniel O’Donnell, a member of the New York state assembly. Before they separated in 2007, the couple co-founded R Family Vacations, which provides family friendly luxury cruises geared toward same-sex couples with children. They have four children, Parker Jaren, Chelsea Belle, Blake Christopher, and Vivienne Rose.

Carpenter is reportedly dating New York cabaret singer, Anne Steele.
