Oprah Winfrey gives Rosie O'Donnell her own show

Oprah Winfrey gives Rosie O'Donnell her own show (despite lesbian feud) Oprah has obviously forgiven Rosie O'Donnell for those lesbian remarks last year: Rosie will return to daytime TV in 2011 with a show on the Oprah Winfrey Network. "Rosie is an undeniable talent who has captivated TV audiences for nearly 20 years," Oprah said in a statement.


"She's a true original, who brings her authentic voice, dynamic energy and pure passion to everything she does."



In late 2009 Rosie's authentic voice appeared on Howard Stern's radio show, where she said: "I don't know that she and Gayle [King, Oprah's bestie and supposed lover] are necessarily doing each other but I think they are the emotional equivalent of [a gay couple]... when they did that road trip [on Oprah's talk show], that's as gay as it gets." A furious Oprah reportedly "warned" Rosie to quit the lesbian talk.



But the alleged feud must've been brushed under the rug: Rosie, who is openly gay, said it will be "an honour and a privilege to work with Oprah Winfrey on her network".
