Looks like Rosie O'Donnell won't be staying in her arch-nemesis' building after all. On a recent Howard Stern appearance Rosie announced that Oprah's people "got me the penthouse at the new Trump Chicago." But now, after the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation called for a boycott of all of Trump's businesses, a spokesperson tells The Advocate that she has changed her mind:
"She is NOT going to be living or renting a Donald Trump apartment and is still looking at real estate options," the rep said in an e-mail.We were a little unclear on exactly how the Trump penthouse deal would have worked in the first place. Was Rosie talking about the penthouse (the 14,260-square-foot unit on the 89th floor)? And if so, was Trump going to finish it out and lease it to her? We'll probably never know, and it really doesn't matter. The more pressing question: Where should Rosie stay when she's filming in Chicago?
