Much to the surprise of her family, 40-year-old Michelle Rounds hooked up with, then got engaged to 48-year-old Rosie O’Donnell. The talk show host said that she was happy and also that no wedding date has been set.
Rosie said to ABC “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. My gaydar was way off!”
Apparently Michelle Rounds kept her lesbian life out of the view of her parents. Her father Roger Rounds told the National Enquirer “This has been a painful experience for me and my wife. We’d always held out hope that Michelle would eventually find a nice guy to marry, settle down and have kids.”
Well, she did: Rosie O’Donnell has four kids from her marriage to Kelli Carpenter that will become Rounds’ step kids.
What is interesting is that the story broke in the National Enquirer. Score another one for a news organization historically trashed for not breaking real news.
