'Extra' Raw: Rosie O'Donnell Opens Up about 'The Rosie Show'
Rosie O'Donnell is teaming with Oprah Winfrey's OWN to star in "The Rosie Show."
"It will be one celebrity per show, not three or four making the rounds doing promotion," O'Donnell explained, adding, "We're going to have a lot of entertainment and comedy, of course, because I'm funny, right?"
Rosie, who is excited for her return to television, said, "I am the mother of four, and frankly, they're teenagers, and that's the reason why I'm going back to work."
For her very first show, O'Donnell hinted she might invite a certain celebrity she "fell in love with." "Russell Brand... who is absolutely genius."
"The Rosie Show" debuts in October on OWN.
