Rosie O’Donnell’s Big Gay Return to Daytime Talk


If you’re a Sirius XM subscriber (or someone who keeps signing up for free 3-day online stream guest passes), you’ve already got your fill of gay radio options: OutQ boasts Larry Flick in the morning, Frank DeCaro’s fag fest at midday, Michelangelo Signorile’s news and interviews for the drive home, and Derek & Romaine for evening bullshitting. But there’s a new girl in town, and her name is Rosie O’Donnell. The former View co-host arrives on Sirius this fall, but Rosie Radio won’t be on OutQ — she’s too mainstream for us plebes! She’ll be heard daytime on the Stars channel, where she can battle against Barbara Walters (who also hosts a Sirius show) on the dial and not the tube. Meanwhile, we hear this isn’t Rosie’s only planned return to media; might a certain former talk show host be looking for yet another television gig?
