Rosie O'Donnell Stopped From Coming Out In 1992

Rosie O’Donnell has revealed that she was prevented from coming out in 1992.

She admitted to being gay in an interview; however, it was edited out of the article.

Rosie O’Donnell has revealed that she came out as gay in an interview with Cosmopolitan Magazine in 1992. She told Marlo Thomas on her web series, Mondays With Marlo,

“He said, ‘Are you gay?’ and I said ‘yes,’”

Rosie claims that the editors at Cosmopolitan made the decision to edit out that part of her interview.

“She was protecting me. At that time it would have been a huge issue. I think it’s changed a lot.”

If this had been printed, she would’ve been out five years prior to Ellen Degeneres coming out.

Rosie is currently appearing on ABC Family’s The Fosters and is best known for her roles in A League Of Their Own, Sleepless in Seattle, and The Flintstones.
