Rosie O'Donnell Wants to Buy Honey Boo Boo's Family a New House
ROSIE O'DONNELL is a HUGE "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" fan. For real. In an interview with "People" magazine, she compares Honey Boo Boo to SHIRLEY TEMPLE. And she's NOT being sarcastic.
--She says, quote, "She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years."
--She adds, quote, "I'd love to meet them and buy them a house."
--In that same interview, Rosie talks about how serious her recent heart attack was . . . quote, "I almost died . . . and that's not an over-exaggeration. That's a fact."
--She adds, quote, "My arms starting aching and my chest hurt. My son, Blake, said, 'Mommy you look very white.' I told him, 'I don't feel so good, honey.'"
--If there's a silver lining here, it's that Rosie is taking much better care of herself now. She's lost 12 pounds since the heart attack . . . which wasn't even two months ago.
--She says, quote, "For the first time, it wasn't hard for me. It took a heart attack for me to learn to take care of myself. I've been given a second chance.
It's Official: "The Bachelor" Is Now 0-for-16
If you watch "The Bachelor", there's endless talk about "amazing journeys" and "connections" . . . but none of that seems to translate to REAL life.
--Over the weekend, the latest "Bachelor" BEN FLAJNIK and his "Chosen One" COURTNEY ROBERTSON announced they've officially ended their relationship. This means "The Bachelor" is now 0-for-16 in creating lasting relationships.
--Ben confirmed the split, but didn't elaborate on the situation. This isn't a surprise though . . . in addition to it being a "Bachelor" relationship, there was talk that things weren't working out WHILE his season was airing.
--He'd apparently been caught hooking up with other women, and on the finale he admitted that things with Courtney had been "a rough ride" . . . but they gave it a go as a long-distance relationship over the summer.
(--Overall, only THREE of the 24 couples from "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" are still together. That's a 12.5% success rate.)
