Rosie O'Donnell blogged some major gratitude Monday: The former daytime host revealed she suffered a heart attack last week. What began as an act of kindness ended in the insertion of a stent, after doctors discovered a 99% blocked artery in O'Donnell's heart. An "enormous" woman Rosie spotted in a Nyack, N.Y., parking lot had asked for help getting out of her car last Tuesday. O'Donnell obliged, writing in her free-form blog style, "it was not easy but together we did it she was up and on her way with gratitude.

Rosie O'Donnell has lost almost 50 pounds, she announced Thursday on Twitter, posting a before-and-after photo comparison showing how much progress she's made since last year's gastric-sleeve surgery.  "Almost 50 lbs off - I can see it," she wrote, captioning the side-by-side shots. In the "after" shot, her face and neck are noticeably thinner. Her significant weight loss was inspired by a brush with death. The former co-host of "The View" had suffered a life-threatening heart attack in August 2012 after helping an "enormous" woman get out of a car.  "A few hours later my body hurt, I had an ache in my chest both my arms were sore, everything felt bruised," she wrote on her blog at the time.

Rosie O'Donnell and Michelle Rounds are married, though they have yet to celebrate with a dream wedding, the former talk-show host announced in a blog post Monday. "[W]e married in private / before her surgery / just the 2 of us," O'Donnell wrote in her usual free-form style.  The two, who announced their engagement in December, had planned to wed in August. They moved up the date to June 9, right before Rounds' first of several surgeries to remove gastrointestinal desmoid tumors, O'Donnell's rep told People . On her blog, O'Donnell noted that the scheduling change was fortunate, "as i was in ICU" on the date they'd originally earmarked, 10 days ago. On Aug. 14 she suffered a heart attack, though she didn't immediately see a doctor.
