Rosie O'Donnell Wants to Buy Honey Boo Boo's Family a New House


is a HUGE "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" fan.  For real.  In an interview with "People" magazine, she compares Honey Boo Boo to SHIRLEY TEMPLE.  And she's NOT being sarcastic.  She says, "She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years."  She adds, "I'd love to meet them and buy them a house."  (Here's video.)

In that same interview, Rosie talks about how serious her recent heart attack was, "I almost died, and that's not an over-exaggeration.  That's a fact."  She adds, "My arms starting aching and my chest hurt.  My son, Blake, said, 'Mommy you look very white.'  I told him, 'I don't feel so good, honey.'"

If there's a silver lining here, it's that Rosie is taking much better care of herself now.  She's lost 12 pounds since the heart attack, which wasn't even two months ago.  She says, "For the first time, it wasn't hard for me.  It took a heart attack for me to learn to take care of myself.  I've been given a second chance.  (Here's video of Rosie talking about the attack.)
