Rosie O’Donnell: ‘My Gaydar Was Way Off’ with Michelle Rounds

Rosie O’Donnell was attracted to Michelle Rounds the moment she saw her in a Starbucks this summer. But she never thought it would be reciprocated. 
“I thought she was a 28-year-old heterosexual girl, because that’s what she looked like to me. And she’s a 40-year-old gay woman,” O’Donnell, 49, tellsABC’s Nightline in an interview airing Monday night.

She adds with a laugh: “My gaydar was way off!”

But O’Donnell, who recently said she in love, thinks maybe it’s a good thing she thought Rounds was straight. “I think if I had known that she was gay, I wouldn’t have been brave enough to talk to her,” she says.

O’Donnell’s new talk nightly talk show, The Rosie Show, debuts Monday on the OWN network.
