As with many celebrities and their divorces, Rosie O'Donnell has decide to make a clean break from all major areas in her life. She recently decided to file for divorce from her wife of two years while also saying goodbye to her role on the popular talk show, "The View." With so many big changes in her life, O'Donnell will undoubtedly face one or two legal hurdles along the way.
The couple had adopted a baby girl together in 2013, which will likely complicate the divorce proceedings to some extent. There has been no comment on whether a custody agreement or support arrangement has been made yet.
Cutting All Ties at Once
After returning to "The View" less than a year ago, O'Donnell announced that she would be leaving the show to spend more quality time with her family but still planned to make some occasional guest appearances on the show in the future. She has decided to return to her early comedic roots, staring in the new stand up show, "Rosie O'Donnell: A Heartfelt Stand Up," which will air in February.
Amid the news of her divorce, O'Donnell has maintained a positive attitude, recently joking about her separation in her first media appearance since the news. The celebrity mentioned that the separation had been ongoing since last Thanksgiving and that she did not want to lie or act like nothing was going on between the couple. O'Donnell seems to have used the relational and career break to start fresh, cutting off all old ties and moving forward with new projects.
