In a coupling that’s almost too Irish to handle, Rosie O’Donnell and Tatum O’Neal are apparently dating. The pair have been friends for a long time, but rumours that they’re actually a couple have been swirling for a couple of weeks now. Tatum upped things a gear the other day by posting an Instagram photo of a blue sky and palm trees and captioned it “#vacations my wife and I woo woo!!! #ilovemylife.” When people started commenting asking whether or not she was referring to Rosie as her “wife”, she then deleted the pic. Shaaaaade!
A source tells Us Weekly that the two have been living together at the former View co-host’s home in Nyack, N.Y.
O’Donnell, 53, also owns property down in West Palm Beach, Fla., and the Instagram photo is believed to have been taken from that house.
A rep for O’Donnell tells Us that they are not dating, but have been friends since they met in Chicago while the women were filming separate shows for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network. A rep for O’Neal did not respond to Us Weekly’s request for comment.
Cute. Pretty sure they are dating, even if it’s not serious, but whatever. Rosie split from her wife earlier this year and things seem to be pretty ugly, so hopefully this thing with Tatum is a bit of a reprieve from the bullshit.
Also, Rosie hasn’t had much luck in relationships. I swear to god, if Ellen and Portia ever split, I’ll be devastated.
