‘Rosie O’Donnell Show’ Returns for One-Night Special

The Rosie O’Donnell Show returned for its one-night-only special on Sunday, and the event was an enormously star-studded affair, all through the digital magic of video conferencing.

The grand event was a live-streaming fundraiser dedicated to raising money for The Actors Fund amid the on-going coronavirus pandemic. To help the cause, O’Donnell enlisted the help of dozens of her friends and big Broadway stars who joined the show via video chat to talk about how they’ve been holding up in self-isolation, and a few even performed live.

The relatably informal affair gave fans a look at how some ‘big name’ stars are living life while stuck at home during the widespread COVID-19 outbreak — sweatpants, pajama shirts, at-home cooking and all.

One of the most inspiring moments came early during the 3-and-a-half-hour special when O’Donnell was joined by singer-songwriter Gloria Estefan, who performed a track she wrote years ago called “Always Tomorrow.”

Estefan explained how the song, “Celebrates the hero in each of us and the fact that there’s always hope, there’s always another day.”

The singer also shared her wish for the future, explaining, “There’s a lot of things we can do to make this world a better place and hopefully we do that when this is over and not just keep going like nothing is happening… We’re going to come out of the dark soon.”

Neil Patrick Harris also shared a sweet moment when he joined the special accompanied by his two children — 9-year-old twins Harper and Gideon.

When asked how it’s going at home, the twins said, “Lot of screens, lots of ’em.”

“They don’t watch screens, no,” Harris said, unconvincingly. “We’re doing lots of schoolwork and we’re doing lots of… projects?”

“Don’t listen to him,” Gideon quipped, shaking his head.

Like everyone else in America, celebs are doing whatever they can to stay sane while self-isolating. For Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick — who appeared together on the special — that means a lot of normal household work to keep things normal.

“We’re doing a lot of cooking and laundry,” the pair explained.

The big special also included appearances from Oscar-nominated actress Cynthia Erivo, Pose star Billy Porter, Audra McDonald, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Idina Menzel, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Kristin Chenoweth among dozens of others.

With the coronavirus outbreak sweeping across the country, state and local governments have been implementing social distancing regulations designed to slow down the spread of the illness.

These new protocols have led to the closure of most public events and locations including all of Broadway. Every Broadway performance has been cancelled until at least April 13, at the earliest, leaving thousands of actors, stage hands and back-office employees out of work on leave for at least the next few weeks.

According to O’Donnell, everyone’s efforts did not go to waste. The host took to Twitter after the special ended to reveal how successful the special had been.

“1/2 a million dollars for the actors fund,” O’Donnell tweeted. “Thank u everyone #TROS.”

  1. So, what do these millionaires plan to do with the $$ raised? Are they supporting Joe or Bernie with it??

  2. She’s a putz … what’s that. A putz is that little turd that refuses to flush until some t/p is placed omn top of it.

    • Putz, describes Rosy O’Donnell perfectly!!! That turd keeps getting flushed, but keeps showing up unwanted by everyone!!! I’m sure that Hollywood keeps trying to flush her too!!!

  3. I just wish these people would stick to acting and their profession.
    Rosie is not a role model of any sort
    She should just go away .
    On

  4. I’m sure it will be so relevant and riveting! I simply can’t wait to see Arnold in his hot tub with a stogie hangin from his lips🤔

  5. Rosie is such a lesbian she goes to bed with other woman and she kisses her parter that’s sickest shitty thing she is a fucking retard I hope she doesn’t post her wedding picture with her partner I would want to throw up I don’t how someone like her could fall in love with woman what a sick bitch

  6. Rosie will only have a good show if she features president Trump as an honored guest !

  7. Like Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie is just another ill informed, ignorant, bigoted big mouth. Typical Hollywood representative of their peers. Like Nancy Pelosi. Maxine Watters, and others with power tripping, feckless behavior.
    I wouldn’t piss on their graves to water the flowers.

  8. The ONLY Good Thing That THIS Could EVER Do Is Put Some People To Work… At Least Until They Cancel The Show AGAIN!!!! Although… The ONLY People Watching Are Damaged DNA Idiots Like Her(?)!!!!!! Not Even The HOLLYWOOD Marxist Democrats Will Watch This Show!!!!!!

  9. The media, all of them, should stop giving that “putz” airtime!!! That’s the only way to get rid of it!!!

  10. Our celebrity did well on her show, made a lot of money. This transcended her to think she was the voice for the masses just like mouthpiece Whoopie Goldberg. That is not the case. Almost everyone in Hollywood take liberty and open their big mouth.Look at Robert Dinero and Alex Baldwin

  11. Rosie the BULL DYKE show. No thanks.

  12. I feel sorry for all the hollyweirdos who aren’t getting rich and famous ,NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!! ONE NIGHT SHOW?…EVEN THAT IS TOO MUCH FOR HER AND THOSE STUPID HOLLIBTARDOS!!!

  13. Why The Fuck is this fat cow DYKE coming back for she got uglier go back in your hole in the ground

  14. Why The Fuck is this fat cow coming back for she got uglier go back in your hole in the ground DYKE

  15. Shut the hell up!!!!

  16. Rosie who?
    Didn’t she move to Canada or somewhere?

  17. What wasted replies filled with hate and profanity-She has her own views and you have yours-that is why I love this Country

  18. SO glad I missed this little display of attention seeking rich idiots who think they need a fundraising event! True to form, NONE of them think of anybody but themselves! When hell freezes over and I magically become a champion skater, I STILL won’t financially support these shallow, lying losers. Grow up, get a real life and get over yourselves!
