Where's Alice the housekeeper when you need her?
Comedian Rosie O'Donnell says she and partner Tracy Kachtick Anders have so may children between them that they rival "The Brady Bunch." Or, as O'Donnell joked to Us Weekly: "We're the Gay-dy Bunch!"
O'Donnell, is mom to Parker, 15, Chelsea, 13, Blake, 10, and Vivienne, 7, her children with ex Kelli Carpenter, while Anders – who lives next door to O'Donnell – has one adopted child and five biological kids. "Part of the reason I fell in love with her was her love of kids," O'Donnell, 48, said of artist/writer Anders. "She was a foster mom and took in 12, 13 kids, and adopted a whole bunch as well."
While O'Donnell admits having such a big, blended family can be a challenge, she acknowledges, "when you fall in love with someone, they come with a whole bunch of things, including children."
Speaking of challenges, O'Donnell is gearing up for her upcoming talk show for the Oprah Winfrey Network. The one-hour show, airing in January, will focus on one topic and will be about "real people, real topics, what America is talking about," she revealed to Us. "It won't be too much celebrities, or guests promoting something."
