Did You Know?


Rosie O'Donnell was outed by Roseanne Barr in 1998 when she was still hosting this show. At a press junket about Roseanne Barr's new talk show, the Roseanne Show, (1998) ,reporters asked her how people were supposed to know the difference between her show and the Rosie O'donnell Show. Roseanne said simply, "I'm the straight one." Rosie O'donnell did not respond. Rosie O'donnell had subtly outed herself before in 1996; when Ellen DeGeneres came on her show and was promoting a huge upcoming plot twist on her sitcom "Ellen". She was going announce that she was gay. But Ellen was coy with the audience; and so was Rosie. "Ellen: You might have heard rumors, and stories in the grapevine about a big announcement I am making. Well I'm here to tell they're all true: I'm Lebanese. Rosie: Wow. I'm amazed to hear you say that Ellen! Yow know what, I'm Lebanese too!" Hints like these would be dropped throughout the run of the show. Another reporter asked the question at a later press conference and Rosie responded with more coded hints: "If children want to use me as a role model that is fine, but I am not going to be a role model for a community of adults that are perfectly capable of living their own lives without me." Another non-denial denial. And then after the show wrapped, in 2002, when the pressure to bring in ratings and revenue was off, Rosie then made the big announcement; She was infact gay. The way Rosie phrased it; she made it seem like she was always out of the closet. She had an interview with Planet Berkley Magazine; among other media outlets, like Diane Sawyer, the New York Times and other Magazines and TV shows as well:"Rosie O'Donnell, in her first extensive public discussion about being gay, says in a television interview to air Thursday that she didn't come out sooner partly because she didn't consider it a big deal. O'Donnell said she didn't want the adjective "gay" permanently attached to her name. "It was never a big deal for me," she said. "It remains not a big deal for me. It is not the way that I describe myself. But nor is it a way that I distance myself from." See more »

touching fun
8 June 1999 | by Sidhe-2See all my reviews

Ok-Rosie is certainly not an excellent actress-thats why BU kicked her out-but she makes this show so wonderful it hurts. She is a beautiful woman with a truly beautiful soul. She has the only creative and interesting talk show on TV today. I just love the way she plays with things in her hands while she talks to everyone, and the way everyone just loves her. She also has regular people on, and not to make fun of them like Letterman would. She also has Broadway shows all the time on, getting these poor people a little recognition. She really cares about people, all people, because she is a real person, unlike most people on TV. If you ever read this Rosie, thank you for what you have done for us :)
