As we previously mentioned, Rosie O'Donnell had a heart attack!
Since then, she's lost 12 pounds! Which is great!
The near-death experience not only helped her to change her eating habits, but made her realize she needs to be healthy so she can be there for her children.
"My two youngest are nine and 12 and I was 10 when my mother died and I hardly remember her. I remember thinking: 'This is too soon to be done.'"
The worst part is her son was there with her when she had her heart attack!
He could've had to watch his mom die!
"My son, Blake, said: ‘Mommy, you look very white.' I told him: 'I don’t feel so good honey.'"
We hate that it happened but we're so glad that she took the heart attack as a call to get healthy.
With each step she takes towards health, that's another step closer to being there for her children as they grow up!
