Rosie O’Donnell and Kelli Carpenter may have had a great sex life, but it wasn’t enough to keep them together. But even though Rosie confirmed the pair have split (though they still love each other and are family), it wasn’t until now that she revealed they’ve been living apart for at least two years.
Minus a couple shouting matches in between.
And because this is how the world works, it took a dog psychic to score the reveal.
On her Sirius Satellite radio show, O’Donnell suddenly admitted Carpenter had moved out of their home two years ago. The reason for the big reveal? A pressing psychic and a long-haired chihuahua.
“Where did you get her from Rosie? Because she says she came from somewhere. And she said she’s happier with you,” pet psychic Sonya Fitzpatrick said of O’Donnell’s dog Misty. “She’s so spoiled and she loves to burrow.”
O’Donnell confirmed: “She does! She burrows in the bed right next to me.”
And, when asked who “sometimes looks after her,” O’Donnell explained her four children all fight over caring for the pup, which she got three days after Carpenter left. “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.”
Score another one for the National Enquirer, which in August was the first to report their split, and zero for Rosie’s publicist, who lied about their break-up to People — the same magazine that just shared the two-year-old moving out news.
