Rosie O’Donnell says she’s “the fattest I’ve ever been,” but she isn’t going on a medically prescribed diet any time soon. Rosie tells Ladies’ Home Journal she was shocked when she stepped on a scale and weighed in at “like 208 pounds.” She isn’t sure how she feels about that. She says “there’s a big loathing” some days, and a “total disconnectedness” other days. She says she’d like to lose weight the way Oprah Winfrey did, but she concedes “I’m not there yet.”

  • In other news of Rosie, she’s been tapped to host this year’s Grammy Awards, which will be broadcast live on Feb. 24. Her pal Madonna is also set to perform the show’s opening number. Rosie will move her talk show to L.A. the week of the Grammys. “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer hosted the music industry’s big night last year.
