Rosie O'Donnell Covers 'Michigan Avenue'

Rosie O’Donnell takes the cover of Michigan Avenue‘s December/January issue.

Here’s what the 49-year-old talk show host had to share with the mag:

On how her OWN show is different from others: “We’re not really doing pre-interviews with guests because I don’t want to have a show and then you see the guest on the Late Show With David Letterman and they tell the same story. It’s not their fault – they’re actors, not stand-up comics. They have two funny stories, so they tell both of them. But when you already know where it’s going you can’t really fake interest. So before the show, I just give them topics.”

On her relationship with Oprah Winfrey: “We don’t, like, hang out. We’ve talked a couple of times on the phone, but it’s not like we’re buddies and have beer and buffalo wings, you know? Although I’d love to, she’d be fun. But she’s got her own network. It’s a huge life, and I’m more grateful to her than I ever have been to anyone in my life. But I’m nervous around her, still. I’m just trying to get over it. The worst thing that ever happened during my first talk show was the illusion that I was in competition with her. No one is.”
