Rosie O’Donnell took the stage Tuesday night to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Rosie's Theater Kids, honoring radio star Elvis Duran. Looking happy and healthy in her first public appearance following her heart attack, the entertainer proved her close encounter with the "widow maker" hasn’t mellowed her.
“McDonalds, not so healthy,” said Rosie. “I almost died, and I think I should tell everyone … I saw Barbra Streisand last night. It was like every rich New Yorker was there. She was good. Her son sang. He’s 45 years old. I was pissed. I texted my son and said, 'If you are funny, you better tell me before you are 45 years old! At the Streisand concert there were 6,000 people, and who sat in front of me? Woody Allen and his daughter-wife. Even Streisand couldn’t get me to think, 'You child molester.'"
However, O’Donnell saved her most passionate observations for Mitt Romney. “Mitt Romney -- don’t vote for him. I had a heart attack.”
Rosie’s Theater Kids gives Broadway-level singing, dancing and acting lessons to underserved public school students. No one has been a bigger supporter than Duran, who calls the organization “inspiring.”
