Rosie O’Donnell and her wife of five years Kelli Carpenter are on the rocks. “We’re a family,” says Rosie, “we remain a family and we’re working on the issues.”

The former co-host of The View wouldn’t discuss whether Kelli, 42, had moved out of their Nyack, NY home.

The couple married in San Francisco in 2004 and have three adopted children – Parker, 14, Chelsea, 12 and Blake, 9, as well as Vivienne (“Vivi”), 6, whom Kelli carried.

Rosie is trying to put the children’s welfare first.”They’re adorable and wonderful and they are by far a priority,” she says.

“Kelli and I love each other very much and we are working on our issues. Those are the only words I am ever going to say. Ever. And that is something that has been agreed upon by all parties,” she says, her eyes filling with tears.

“But everything’s fine and everybody’s good and we’re still both raising them together. We will both continue to parent them and we’re friendly and everything’s all right.”
