Tracy Kachtick-Anders: Rosie O'Donnell's New Girlfriend

by at . Comments

Since leaving The View in mid-2007, Rosie O'Donnell has remained out of the spotlight.

About a month after the comedian admitted long-time partner Kelli Carpenter moved out of their house two years ago, her rep has confirmed a new woman in Donnell's life: Tracy Kachtick-Anders, a Texas-based artist.

A photo of the couple walking together has been plastered across the Internet over the last 24 hours.

Who is Kachtick-Anders?

She is the founder of Open Arms Campaign, a non-profit organization aimed at recruiting and fostering adoptive families within the LGBT community.

"I have become an activist and work to educate everyone, not only about the plight of foster children, but also the inequality that faces LGBT people in their quest to create families," she has written.

Kachtick-Anders walks the walk, too: she has five adopted children.

O'Donnell, meanwhile, will host A Family Is A Family Is A Family: A Rosie O'Donnell Celebration, a HBO documentary in January that challenges the traditional ideas of family. We doubt Carrie Prejean will turn in for it.
