Rosie O'Donnell and Kelli Carpenter are having problems. Big ones. In a chat with USA Today on Tuesday, the former daytime TV host broke down in tears while discussing her longtime partner, whom she shares four kids with. "We're a family. We will remain a family forever. And we are working on our issues," she coyly answered to questions on whether she and Carpenter had split.

O'Donnell herself has been fueling the breakup reports with answers to fan questions on her blog. She has recently called marriage "very very very hard" and seemed genuinely unaware that Carpenter had a Facebook account.
