Rosie O’Donnell met her new girlfriend, Michelle Rounds, out of complete luck at a Starbucks—even her “gaydar” wasn’t working!
Rosie sat down with Nightline for a new interview about the premiere of her new talk show, The Rosie Show, on Oprah Winfrey‘s network OWN.
While Rosie is very excited to be returning to TV, she’s also very happy to be back in the dating world.
“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,” Rosie explained. “My gaydar was way off.”
Rosie started talking to her now girlfriend because she was holding a cute dog and was looking into buying another puppy herself.
“But I think if I had known that she was gay, I wouldn’t have been brave enough to talk to her,” she revealed.
