Rosie O’Donnell buying new $8 million digs
17 July 2012

When Rosie O’Donnell signed on to do a nightly talk show of the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) last year, she relocated to Chicago where the show was taped and bought a Lakeview home for $2.5 million.

But unlike her previous television successes, The Rosie Show was canceled earlier this year after just six months on the air and Rosie headed back home to her native New York.

O’Donnell, engaged to marry Michelle Rounds, is re-establishing roots in Manhattan with the purchase of a four bedroom apartment on W. 12th Street for nearly $8 million, according to the New York Post.

The exclusive condo complex is the former St. Vincent’s Hospital building.

Since the end of her most recent talk show, O’Donnell has done a guest appearances on the TV Land sitcom Happily Divorced, the HBO comedy Web Therapy and participated in panel discussions on NBC’s The Today Show.
