Rosie O’Donnell Engaged To Her Police Officer Girlfriend Elizabeth Rooney

Funny lady Rosie O’Donnell is engaged to her girlfriend of a year, police officer Elizabeth Rooney. This will be the third marriage for the sometimes controversial comedienne. Rosie’s future wife, is much younger than her, with a 23 year age difference. They became engaged over the summer, but decided to keep the news on the ‘down low’ for a while due to Rooney’s job with the police force. The Emmy winner revealed to Howard Stern in November 2017, that ‘she was in love.’ She said, “It’s the first time I’ve ever dated someone younger than me, and it’s a very trippy thing.”

O’Donnell said, “We get along so well, it’s kind of fascinating, the one thing she didn’t know about was Barbara Streisand. I made her watch ‘Funny Girl’, she was like ok.” O’Donnell has long declared that she is ‘Streisand’s ‘super fan of the century’, and had the legendary singer on her talk show in the 90’s. Some fans are surprised that O’Donnell is getting married again. She told Stern that she would never ever walk down the aisle again. The New York native said, “I would rather stay in it for love and not deal with lawyers, god forbid it doesn’t work out.”
