Insiders say the comedian's ex had overdosed on pills after she lost custody of their two-year-old daughter Dakota. Sources went on to reveal that Rosie called Michelle in an attempt to talk her out of ending her life.
The former talk show host stayed on the line with her, and also had someone call emergency services.
When authorities arrived, the 44-year-old was supposedly unconscious, and was rushed a local New York hospital where Rosie stayed by her side. She was treated and released the next day.
A source says the 53-year-old's actions saved Michelle's life.
We are so happy that she's okay, and our hearts are with everyone affected during this trying time.
