Rosie continues to dance around Kelli

In an interview with’s Jeannie Williams, talk-show host Rosie O’Donnell cites lack of privacy as one of the reasons she’ll move to Miami once her talk show ends next year. She finds raising her children difficult in New York, where strangers will approach her them and address them by name, forcing her to explain, “Mommy’s on TV, she talks about you.” As to the tabloid shots of her and friend Kelli Carpenter, about whom she announced, “I love you!” at this year’s Emmy awards, she will only say, “I live my life, they take pictures when they do. I’ve never denied or confirmed anything. I’ve never felt the need to.” O’Donnell continued, “They’ve been taking photos of me and her for many years. I don’t think there will ever be some big press conference to announce anything about my private life.”
