Rosie O'Donnell may get talk show in 2011


Senior Member
This morning Rosie O'Donnell was on GMA raising awareness about Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), a difficulty one of her son's has. She and an APD specialist were interviewed. Rosie mentioned that she is considering a talk show, which will not be celebrity-centered as her previous talk show was. The new talk show would would be focused on informational issues, like APD, and topics which could be helpful to families. The show is being considered for 2011 to fill a void which will be left when Oprah ends her talk show.

I believe I have heard Rosie make comments which show she understands CFS as a serious illness. At any rate, I will be keeping an eye on Rosie and the possible development of the talk show. If the show develops, I think she would do a good segment on CFS.
