Rosie O’Donnell shares a funny story about her lesbian fiancee Elizabeth Rooney
Rosie, 57 is now engaged to Elizabeth Rooney, 34 who happens to be a police officer. She was doing a stand-up act at the Lea DeLaria’s The Club in Provincetown in Massachusetts. She shared with the audience a funny story.
She recalled the first night when Elizabeth slept at her house. On that night, the alarm went off at her house. It was strange since it was the first time that the alarm had rung in the 20 plus years that Rosie had resided there.
Nonetheless, she remembered how Elizabeth immediately jumped up and grabbed the gun reflexly. She then told everyone to stay put in their rooms. Rosie joked that she felt that she is dating one of Charlie’s Angels.

Rosie O’Donnell and Elizabeth Rooney-their relationship timeline
Rosie and Elizabeth were dating since 2017. In October 2018, Rosie proposed to Elizabeth at a Theater benefit. Elizabeth had displayed her engagement ring on her Instagram the same month. Rosie had earlier told US Weekly about the couple’s daily routine. She said:
“I have a 5-year-old with autism [Dakota] and we have a routine going, the two of us. Elizabeth comes every five days and stays for a few days. It’s kind of a great, slow process where [Dakota] does say, ‘I have two brothers and two sisters and two mommies.’ So she’s kind of in the vibe of it, but you know when you have a kid with special needs like that, you try to go in a little bit of a different place. So we both agree that [holding off on wedding plans] would be best for everyone.”
