Rosie's back and she's more honest than ever.

In the October issue of O magazine, not only did Ro open up about working on her new show for OWN, admitting that it's the first time she's been "excited" for something in a long time, but she also spoke honestly about getting over her anger issues and the downfall of her marriage with Kelli Carpenter. She revealed:

"You know, I think I had a lot more rage than I was aware of. But I’ve gotten back access to my other feelings. I’m not cut off from my emotions anymore … The rage has gone away … There’s been a healing.

I had, like, zero estrogen. And since I got some, I’ve been able to function more normally. I’ve stopped being so angry."

Her new outlook on life is also why she calls this stage in her life "a new beginning." Back in 2007, her marriage fell apart when she and Kelli realized they were two different people. Rosie explains that it was "humbling and humiliating … In the O'Donnell family, no one had ever divorced." As for why the two ended things, Rosie goes on to explain some of their differences:

"She wanted to play tennis at the country club, and I don’t do country clubs. I tried. "They made an exception for a gay family, and we joined. It was a big thing: 'They let in a gay family – whoo!' So I show up to play with her, and somebody comes out and says, 'You can’t play unless you have tennis whites.'"

Wait. Did they really argue over tennis? We hope there's a lot more to it than that! And we're sure there are…. Sorry you and Kelli couldn't work things out, but seems like you two now have a mature relationship for the sake of your kids. And things are on the up and up for you! Good luck to you and your show!

    The gays can have both of em. No man wants to stick it in O or Rosie.

    Didn't Rosie accuse Oprah of living a lie…say that Oprah was gay…that Gayle was her lover, not Stedman? Now Oprah gives her a talk show on her network? Did Oprah confess to Rosie's accusations or is this a sort of payoff for Rosie? You clever devil you Rosie!

    For the love of estrogen. It keeps us sane and balanced.

    They didn't argue over tennis. They argued over class identity and passtimes.

    I love Rosie and hope her show does well, but she does not look comfortable in this picture.

    Rosie is nothing but a big mouth crazy liberal. She is the one who said the US Government bombed the world trad center and it was not the muslims who crashed planes into the towers. She is obviously a whack job nut.

    These shows are the type of shows you are stuck watching when on jury duty or something, except the CA courts do not have cable or satellite.

    Interesting and candid comments on the emotions thing. It all takes time which equals perspective. She has the gift of patter, and now she can take it back out of the box. She was absolutely terrific in League of Their Own, and just shone.

    Loves her kids by throwing them into the 'Gay-dy' bunch right after the 'divorce'. Oh, sorry- those other kids who got dragged across the country from Texas don't count. Anyone remember the new now gone g-friend? O is sure polishing up this crazy woman.
