Janelle Gordon, an agent with Koenig & Strey Real Living, confirms to the Tribune that she listed the home in the Southport corridor and secured O'Donnell as buyer. The price was not disclosed, but the home was offered at $2.5 million. (September 17, 2011)
Six months after buying a house on Chicago’s north side, Rosie O’Donnell is putting the house up for sale.
In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, O’Donnell’s publicist said the $2.5 million purchase was an impulse-buy.
Publicist Cindi Berger says, “She bought a house because she felt that she wanted the kids to have a backyard and to live in a neighborhood. But the kids only come on the weekends -- she doesn't need that big house."
The 6,000-square-foot house has five bedrooms, a theater room and a 2,000-square-foot roof deck.
O’Donnell will reside in a corporate apartment while continuing her work on “The Rosie Show” for Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network.
