Oh no. Michelle Rounds, the soon to be ex-wife of Rosie O’Donnell, 53, reportedly tried to take her own life! After two years together, Rosie and Michelle are going through a nasty divorce. It might have been too much for Michelle. She allegedly tried to kill herself, just weeks after Rosie was reportedly seeing Tatum O’Neal, 51!
Michelle was reportedly found in a DoubleTree Hotel in Nauet, New York on Sept. 22, according to RadarOnline. An unidentified source was reportedly concerned about Michelle’s condition, and they allegedly contacted the authorities. She had “apparently taken some pills and drank wine,” a source told Radar. As it turns out, Rosie reportedly found out about Michelle’s plan to overdose, according to TMZ. She then allegedly called her wife to talk her down, while getting a friend to call 911. Rosie then allegedly stayed on the phone with the Michelle until the EMTs arrived.
Members of the Clarkstown Police Department had to break down the door to Michelle’s room, according to earlier reports. Either way, Michelle was rushed to the nearby Nyack Hospital and was reportedly okay, according to both Radar and Daily Mail. Michelle’s alleged suicide attempt came months after Rosie filed for divorce from her. Rosie has supposedly moved on, reportedly starting up a brand new romance with Tatum O’Neal. She and Tatum were even allegedly spotted enjoying a getaway together in West Palm Beach.
“Michelle was very depressed lately over the divorce and custody battle with Rosie,” a source told RadarOnline, adding that before the alleged suicide attempt, Michelle and Rosie “had a bitter argument.” Both Rosie and Michelle have reportedly fought for custody over their adopted 2-year-old daughter, Dakota, and Rosie reportedly just got full custody of her, an insider told Daily Mail.
Despite the bitter feelings between them, Rosie was reportedly at Michelle’s side in the hospital. Rosie then reportedly drove her estranged wife to their Hudson River home. Rosie is supposedly helping Michelle as she can, even allegedly letting her wife see their daughter as much as possible.
We hope Michelle is okay after her alleged suicide attempt, HollywoodLifers. Let’s hope she and Rosie can work everything out during their divorce.
