Rosie ODonnell, the famous US chat show host, has announced that she's engaged to partner Michelle Rounds whom she started dating in the late-summer of this year. Congratulations to the pair, even if the news seems quick. O'Donnell has a history of relationships since coming out back in 2002 and has been married before - to former Nickelodeon marketing executive Kelli Carpenter back in 2004. Carpenter moved out in 2007 though, despite the pair being parents of three adopted children; O'Donnell then went on to date Tracy Kachtick-Anders for two years, splitting up in February this year.
Given that it's perhaps not surprising O'Donnell has announced an engagement so soon after meeting Rounds; a source told Us Weekly that the television personality's other half "is very attractive and friendly. Rosie was really proud and showing her off... They seem really happy." Speaking on 'The Rosie Show' the 49 year-old had told her audience that she expected to marry over the festive season. The pair made their debut as a couple only in September at the Rosie Theatre Kids Gala in New York.
Elsewhere it's been announced that O'Donnell will appear as a special guest in the second season of Lisa Kudrow's 'Web Therapy' next year. Reuters reports that other cameos will come from Conan O Brien and MINNIE DRIVER.
