Rosie’s married, selling art on eBay
Rosie O’Donnell has announced that she married her fiancée, Michelle Rounds, in a private ceremony in June, just days before Rounds had surgery to treat desmoid tumors.
The 50-year-old TV personality also said Monday on her blog that she is selling original paintings on eBay to raise money for the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation.
A spokeswoman for O’Donnell confirmed the nuptials and fundraising efforts.
Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors in June. She and O’Donnell wed in New York on June 9, and Rounds underwent surgery June 14. Desmoid tumors occur rarely and can affect almost any area of the body. The tumors can be fatal.
O’Donnell has had health issues of her own. She said Aug. 20 that she recently suffered a heart attack.
Roberts’ last show will be Friday
Friday will be Robin Roberts’ last day on “Good Morning America” before she goes on medical leave to receive a bone-marrow transplant, the show confirmed via Twitter early Monday. Roberts also discussed her impending departure with co-anchors George Stephanopoulos and Lara Spencer.
“I can’t imagine not getting up and being here,” she said on the air. Roberts also told viewers she’d check into the hospital next Tuesday but that it would be 10 more days before the transplant – via a donation from her sister, Sally – would actually take place.
It’s a boy for Faris and Pratt
Anna Faris has given birth to a baby boy, her first child with actor husband Chris Pratt.
A spokeswoman for the couple said their son, Jack, “arrived earlier than expected and will be spending some time” in the neonatal intensive care unit. Her publicist said Monday that “the happy parents thank you for your warm wishes and ask that you honor their privacy during this time.”
The 35-year-old Faris and 33-year-old Pratt were married in 2009. She recently shared the screen with Sacha Baron Cohen in “The Dictator.” He is a star of TV’s “Parks and Recreation.”
