"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.
