As revealed by Rosie O’Donnell on her official blog on Monday, August 27, 2012, she and Michelle were married in private last June 9; and although the wedding was set to happen this month, the couple decided to make it earlier, after Ms. Rounds was diagnosed with a rare disease earlier this summer.

“My wife Michelle was diagnosed with desmoid tumors in June, a mysterious rare – too often fatal disease that affects 3 in a million people. We were to wed 10 days ago but her illness forced us to postpone the wedding luckily – as I was in ICU that day.” Rosie O’Donnell wrote at

“When it rains …things grow like love and flowers, humans too. So on we go; we married in private before her surgery, just the 2 of us.” The 50-year old TV personality added, noting that they will have “the wedding of our dreams surrounded by those we cherish” when both of them are already well enough.

O’Donnell, who married Kelli Carpenter on February 26, 2004 but divorced in 2007, began dating Michelle Rounds in summer 2011, a then 40-year-old executive-search consultant from New York City. She suffered a heart attack earlier this month, which she revealed also on her blog, noting that her survival was a “miracle.”

Her last TV show titled “The Rosie Show” via Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) aired last October 10, 2011, but OWN announced its cancellation on March 16, 2012 due to low ratings, and the last show episode was aired on March 29, 2012.
