Rosie O'Donnell suffered a heart attack last week and is now recovering at home.

The comedian/actress/talk show host blogged about her health adventure yesterday, giving credit to the Internet and the Bayer aspirin she had seen recommended on commercials for saving her life.

"Thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally," O'Donnell wrote on her website.

The star's coronary artery was 99 percent blocked, leading doctors to insert a stent and leading Rosie to say she is "lucky to be here."

The incident took place on August 14, as O'Donnell explains she helped an "enormous woman" get out of her car in a Nyack, New York parking lot. Later that day, her arms grew sore and her skin clammy.

"maybe this is a heart attack," she wrote. "i googled womens heart attack symptoms/i had many of them/but really? – i thought – naaaa."

Rosie O'Donnell has been forced to delay her wedding to Michelle Rounds, for a terribly sad reason:

Rounds has been diagnosed with aggressive fibromatoses, a rare onset of desmoid tumors that first cropped up on Mother's Day when she awoke with "pain that [wouldn't] let up," according to Rosie's new blog entry.

It took awhile for doctors to determine her loved one's ailment, O'Donnell added, writing of how the couple felt at the time:

"We wander thru the maze of medical mystery confused – scared . . .undiagnosed – again and again, her pain grew worse. It seemed impossible no one knew what was wrong."

Finally, the proper diagnosis was made - there are only 900 new cases of the disease each year in the U.S. - and Rounds underwent surgery in June. Rosie says she's "getting stronger every day."

The couple, who got engaged in December, will now get married next summer. In lieu of gifts, they ask for donations to be made to the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation.

Rosie O'Donnell is not holding back in her strange crusade against Lindsay Lohan, saying if she doesn't change her life, she could die like Whitney Houston.

Rosie went back on Today show this morning to expand on why she believes LiLo should not have been cast as Liz Taylor in an upcoming Lifetime movie.

Or any acting role, for that matter.

O'Donnell suggested Lindsay is heading down a similar path as the late, great Whitney Houston, and can only be saved if she takes time off from showbiz.

Rosie O'Donnell on Today

The ruthless Hollywood machine is slowly killing Lohan, Rosie feels, and she says feels obligated to speak out about the 25-year-old actress because:

"Watching Whitney Houston's funeral I recall thinking, 'Why didn't more people say what they knew?' We all knew. We watched Being Bobby Brown - it was like watching Sid and Nancy ... they were people in the throes of addiction."

"All anyone cared about was that the show was getting ratings. To look at Lindsay Lohan, you can't help but feel for her ... and I do not think she's untalented, I think she's quite talented. But this is a dangerous situation."

What do you think? Is Rosie totally off base or should she zip it? Lindsay has brushed off her attacks, but might she be better off heeding the warnings?

VOTE: Whose side are you on?

Lindsay Lohan is said to be in shock that Rosie O'Donnell bashed her on live TV yesterday, believing she always had a great relationship with the talk show host.

She's not exactly Donald Trump, in other words.

Sources in LiLo's camp say was never any bad blood between the two, and that Lohan and O'Donnell were always on great terms ... or so she thought anyway.

Lindsay always had a special fondness for Rosie, even. One of Lindsay's first ever talk show appearances, at age 12, was on Rosie's old show back in 1998.

But, though she's surprised, Lindsay isn't upset that Rosie slammed her and her upcoming Liz Taylor role ... it just adds more fuel to the comeback fire!

Why waste time worrying about the haters, right? As far as Lohan's concerned, Rosie's just another doubter she's gotta prove wrong. Her rep concurs.

Reacting to the tirade, Lohan's publicist told E! News Tuesday: "I think Rosie should focus on her own career and stop worrying about everyone else's."

Bam.

Rosie O'Donnell is not a fan of Lifetime casting Lindsay Lohan in the new Liz Taylor biopic, saying LiLo simply isn't "capable" to perform at that level.

The reason? Because her personal life is still "a disaster."

Rosie was on the Today show with Matt Lauer and Donny Deutsch, when it was announced that Lohan will play Taylor in the upcoming Liz and Dick.

O'Donnell instantly made her feelings known: "I feel very sorry for her ... I think she needs a lot of time away," she said, before really getting into it.

"She's had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including Saturday Night Live. She was out and not in rehearsal. I think she's not in a place to work."

Hey, at least Lifetime got insurance.

When Deutsch suggested Lohan is "our generation's Elizabeth Taylor," O'Donnell lost it. "You're out of your mind! You're a crackhead!" she told him.

"The last thing she did good she was sixteen. I don't think she's right for the role and I don't think she's capable at this point to portray that character."

So far, Donald Trump has yet to weigh in and bash Rosie. Give it time.

Donald Trump and Rosie O’Donnell are not mutual fans.

Still. This is the April 2012 version of the ongoing feud.

The Celebrity Apprentice star, real estate mogul and occasional political figure bashed the former talk show host in a new interview, calling her a “bully” and saying he predicted her latest television venture would fail.

Par for the course for the Donald.

“Rosie is a bully,” The Donald told the Roz Weston & Mocha show on Toronto's KiSS 92.5 Monday. “Bullies are people that you have to meet head on and I met her head on."

"A lot of people didn’t, but I didn't let her get away with the act.”

Trump said he knew from the start Rosie's OWN show would fail:

I predicted correctly that Rosie would never make it. I did say that and she never made it so that was sort of good and I was very proud of that frankly."

How kind. Awaiting Rosie response in 5 ... 4 ... 3 ...

Donald Trump is not surprised, or sad, to say the least, about Rosie O'Donnell's recent misfortunes. He says he's known what a failure she is since the get-go.

If you missed it, Oprah cancelled Rosie's show last week - amid reports of chaos on what staffers called "hellish" set - to her former adversary's delight.

Trump went on Twitter this morning and wrote, "Rosie O'Donnell has failed again. Her ratings were abysmal and Oprah cancelled her on Friday night."

"When will media executives learn that Rosie just hasn't got it."

  • Trumped Up
  • Rosie Image

Trump has been bashing Rosie for years, claiming the former co-host on The View was a "pig" and a "loser" after she called him a "snake-oil salesman."

In the case of OWN canning her, Rosie felt the writers, producers, stage managers and directors were all inept ... and that didn't sit well with the brass.

The brass being Oprah, who hired all those people.

Her attitude was the final straw. One word several high level staffers used to describe R.O. is "bully," something the network ultimately had enough of.

Burning question: What's more offensive: Donald Trump Jr.'s hunting photos, or that gargoyle Rosie O'Donnell's mere presence in any situation?

Now that it's been cancelled, staffers from Rosie O'Donnell's ill-fated OWN talk show are coming forward with some great quotes about why it was canned.

“It was such a f**king hellhole,” one former staffer told The Daily Beast.

The reason for that? O'Donnell's frequent, temperamental clashes with The Rosie Show staff. During a taping last fall, "O’Donnell uncontrollably yelled at a publicist backstage because she didn’t like the parameters agreed upon for an interview."

Several staffers were also very upset "when O’Donnell clashed with Oprah Winfrey’s longtime director Joe Terry. People thought she humiliated him when she scolded him in front of a live audience for using the wrong camera shots."

Rosie "suggested he didn’t know what he was doing. She fired Winfrey’s stage manager because she felt he was ignoring her and not doing his job properly."

She was also unhappy with her band leader, Katreese Barnes, a two-time Emmy winner from SNL, as he couldn’t play obscure Broadway songs off the cuff.

And, in what is seen as a final insult to the staff, on Friday, when Rosie's cancellation was publicly announced with a glowing statement by Oprah Winfrey herself, Rosie was not in Chicago to personally break the news to her crew.

Instead, she was Tweeting about what a great time she was having in NYC.

For Chelsea Handler, no topic is ever off limits. To wit:

She appeared yesterday on The Rosie Show and opened up about two personal topics:

  1. The abortion Handler had when she was 16, saying she  has "no regrets" about her decision now because "I wouldn't be a good mother" and adding overall: "You should do whatever you want with your body and you shouldn't let anyone tell you what to do."
  2. The size of 50 Cent's penis, following this comedian's fling with the rapper. Is it really that big?

Find out the answer below!

The feud between Rosie O'Donnell and David Letterman has turned ugly quickly. This is where it stands and how it developed:

A week ago, following the announcement that Rosie was engaged to Michelle Rounds, Letterman mocked the speed of this decision during his show's monologue, saying: "The woman she is marrying, her fiancee, was driving... and her car broke down. And guess what happened? Rosie pulls up right behind her in her tow truck."

O'Donnell replied a few days later, addressing Letterman during her OWN talk show with:

"I don't remember making fun of you when you had sex with all your interns, Dave. I didn't do that. I didn't make fun of your rampant, throbbing heterosexuality, did I Dave?"

Rosie then came up with the Top Five Reasons She Refuses to Appear on the Late Show (above), which included: "Not only do you appear to be anti-gay, you're anti-tow trucker."

Low blow? Accurate blow? Weigh in now: Whose side are you on in this feud?
