Rosie O’Donnell Reveals She’s Married
August 27, 2012 by Maureen McCarty, HRC Associate Director of Digital Media
Rosie O’Donnell took to her blog today to confirm reports that she and fiancé Michelle Rounds quietly married in June.
According to People Magazine, O’Donnell and Rounds intended to wed this August, but instead quietly married on June 14 before Rounds underwent surgery for desmoid tumors, a rare disease that effects 3 out of every 1 million individuals.
O’Donnell broke the news with a poem:
“when it rains …
like love and flowers
so on we go
we married in private
before her surgery
just the 2 of us”
She goes on to explain that they’ll have a ceremony with family and friends once they’re both healthy. O’Donnell reportedly suffered a heart attack last week while helping an elderly woman out of car.
