Rosie O’Donnell Says She Wants To Buy Honey Boo Boo A Home


Don’t count on a health scare to cut Rosie O’Donnell’s fun short.

In an interview with People, the New York-born comedian, who suffered a heart attack in August, revealed her love for TLC reality stars Honey Boo Boo and her family. “I love Mama June. I love Sugar Bear. I love Chubbs,” she says calling some of the members by nicknames. “I love ‘em all.”

Her love for the successful family show, who reeled in 2.2. million viewers since its Aug. 8 premiere, runs so deep, she wants to cop Honey Boo Boo and family a home. “I’d love to meet them,” she says, “and buy them a house.”

O’Donnell even praises Boo Boo as being in in the same league as Shirley Temple. “She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years.”
