Rosie O’Donnell is in confession-mode on Monday’s episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show, opening up about her life after her split from wife Kelli Carpenter.
Rosie tells Oprah that the toughest transition is raising their four children together. “We co-parent, but we share equal time [and] we’re never really without them,” she explains. “It’s free flowing, and we do nights together, too.”
The pair, who were married for five years, found negotiating their new life difficult a challenge.
“[Kelli] lives nearby — and not close enough,” says Rosie. “I wanted her to live in the same town and she was like, ‘I don’t know how good that’s gonna be for me.'”
Rosie has since found love with artist Tracy Kachtick-Anders who she has described as a “lovely, lovely, lovely person.”
