Comedienne/TV personality Rosie Oâ€™Donnell and her girlfriend, Texas artist Tracy Kachtick-Anders, who has six children of her own, reportedly broke up after dating for more than a year. The two were first seen holding hands while on a date with all their kids (total of 10!) in Miami back in December of 2009.
Rosie and Tracy arenâ€™t currently living together and apparently they never did, according to Rosieâ€™s rep. They live in separated houses with their own children, but they still remain good friends mostly for their kidsâ€™ sake.
A rep for O’Donnell told us, “Rosie and Tracy never officially lived under one roof. They have lived near one another for quite some time, and their families still socialize and they see each other frequently.”
But a source said, “They have definitely split up, but it is very complicated because their kids are very close. They still spend a lot of time together.”
Rosie, who has four kids with her ex-wife Kelli Carpenter, confessed that Tracyâ€™s devotion to children was one of the things she loved the most about her. Tracy launched a nonprofit organization called Open Arms Campaign to recruit adoptive families.
A year ago, Rosie said, “Tracy has six kids, she lives next door . . . It’s a lot! We’re the Gay-dy Bunch! It’s a challenge, but when you fall in love with someone, they come with a whole bunch of things, including children.”
Rosie and Tracy might have not worked out as a couple, but we hope they know they have to stick together as friends for their kids, who all seem to have been fairly happy as members of the â€œGay-dy Bunchâ€ (as Rosie called them!).
