Rosie Takes Over Oprah's Old Stomping Grounds

Such an honor…we guess.

Sources report that Rosie O'Donnell's talk show for the OWN network is finally getting underway and apparently, Ro is making a big move for it.

In a video Rosie made for the Harpo staffers, she announced that her talk show will be taped in Chicago, on the former soundstage that housed Oprah Winfrey's show for 25 years. In the video, Ro explains:

“I just wanted to say: Hi, I'm coming to Chicago. Yes, I am, and I'm thrilled about it. And I get to work with all of you, who have created magnificent television for two decades-plus. Thank you, Oprah. And thank all you people there. Some of you are going to be sticking around and helping us make a kick-ass show for the Oprah Winfrey Network."

We've been waiting oh-so patiently for this "kick-ass" show since The Big O announced you two were teaming up MONTHS ago! Perhaps with a final end in sight for The Oprah Winfrey Show, you guys can start really gearing up for the Ro Show!

But we don't know if you are going to like Chicago, Rosie. It's pretty cold in them parts! Not like El Lay or Florida! Just something to keep in mind!

    Did you forget she filmed the Rosie show in NYC? NYC is not like California or Florida. Hello, she has a job. She'll get used to it.

    Chicago > NYC/LA

    She tapes her radio show every day in Nyack, New York, I do believe she is used to the cold, however, her studio is attached to her house, so now she will actually have to go out every day (or at least every two weeks as she told her listeners today). Her show will tape one week and she will go back home in Nyack (where her kids go to school) the other week when the kids are with her and not Kelly

    she lives on the Hudson River, genius. New Yorkers can handle Chicago weather…

    I like Rosie, but I don't like her chronic arch to implosion. A little more live and let live might do the trick.

    Will she be moving the family to Chicago too??

    Chicago Is a great city! At least it isn't full of bulimic pseudo celebs who think they are better than everyone else because their boobs, teeth, hair, nails, etc are all fake
