BIOGRAPHY:

Rosie O'Donnell was born into an Irish family in Commack, Long Island. She was in the middle of 5 children. Her mother died when she was ten. She said that she watched TV nearly 24 hours a day. When she was 18, she dropped out of college and went on to do shows like "Gimme a Break!" (1981), and she produced and hosted "Stand-Up Spotlight" (1988). Now, she works on her own down-to-earth syndicated show: "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" (1996).


TRIVIA:
  • Is allergic to cats and horses.
  • Her role-models are 'Barbra Streisand' (qv) and 'Bette Midler' (qv).
  • Stated on The View that she keeps her Emmys in storage, and when queried by 'Elisabeth Hasselbeck' (qv), confirmed that she lets her kids paint them.
  • Auditioned for role of Elaine on _"Seinfeld" (1990)_ (qv).
  • Took the role in _Exit to Eden (1994)_ (qv) after learning that 'Sharon Stone (I)' (qv) had turned it down.
  • Best friends with 'Madonna' (qv).
  • 'Anjelica Huston' (qv) wanted her to play the lead in the film _Agnes Browne (1999)_ (qv) but she turned it down because the offer came shortly after the shootings at Columbine High-School and O'Donnell felt that she was too emotional to do a film at that time.
