We’ve heard rumblings about trouble between Rosie O’Donnell and her partner Kelli Carpenter O’Donnell for months, but both have kept quiet about the rumors until Tuesday.
In an interview with USA Today, Rosie addressed the status of her relationship with Kelli, saying:
The two have been together for more than 12 years and were married in San Francisco in 2004. They have four children: Parker, 14, Chelsea, 12, Blake, 9 and Vivi, 6.
On her blog, Rosie has hinted at relationship difficulty from time to time, but hey, relationships are hard under the best of circumstances. Under the light of public scrutiny, I can’t imagine how difficult it would be.
Now, however, the problems seem to be more serious. But as always, the welfare of the kids is a priority to the couple.
Rosie and Kelli have been at the forefront of the quest for the right to marry and we want to be among their strongest supporters as they work through their issues. Join me in wishing them well.
