Rosie O'Donnell Admits Split Happened Two Years Ago
Former daytime talk show host Rosie O'Donnell has shared few details of her split with longtime partner Kelli Carpenter, but she let an unexpected tidbit slip Friday on her own Sirius radio show: Carpenter actually moved out of their family home two years ago. PEOPLE reports that Rosie's conversation with a pet psychic led to the big reveal. Discussing her own chihuahua, Rosie said, "What happened [was] when Kelli moved out two years ago, I got the dog. Because I wanted another child or something to love. And I got the dog."
Last month, Rosie told USA Today , "We're a family. We will remain a family forever. And we are working on our issues,"
The couple married in San Francisco in 2004 have three adopted children (Parker, 14, Chelsea, 12, and Blake, 9) as well 6-year-old Vivienne, whom Carpenter carried.
"They're adorable and wonderful and they are by far a priority," O'Donnell said with tears welling. "Kelli and I love each other very much and we are working on our issues. Those are the only words I am ever going to say. Ever. And that is something that has been agreed upon by all parties."
The National Enquirer reported in August that Carpenter had moved out their home and into Manhattan.
Timing issues have caused the couple to part ways amicably.
