Rosie O’Donnell Lists Florida Mansion for Sale the Day Her Oprah TV Show Ends

- — The changes keep coming for Rosie O'Donnell. Newly engaged to her girlfriend Michelle Rounds. Out of a job now that her Oprah Winfrey OWN TV Network show has been canceled. And now comes news that the Rosie's Miami Beach estate is for sale for $19.5 million.

When Rosie shakes things up, she does it in a big way.

According to South Beach Condo Blog's Kevin Tomlinson, activity has been pretty decent for sales on the exclusive Star Island Dr., where two lots have just sold for $8 million and shoe king Donald Pliner's Moroccan-inspired villa is also on the market for just a hair under $20 million.

Rosie's 11,000-square-foot main house includes 12 bedrooms and 11.5 bathrooms, including a master suite with private office and terrace overlooking the water. There are also two separate guest cottages. Rosie bought the place in 1999 for $6.79 million and has done extensive upgrades over the years, including a gourmet kitchen and custom millwork.

In a strange bit of timing, the listing of Rosie's Florida mansion comes two months after Rosie had to defend a shark-fishing trip she took with her kids. The captain of the boat from where Rosie's daughter caught a hammerhead shark several years ago posted the picture on Twitter in January. The photo caused a backlash, since hammerhead shark fishing has since been banned. Rosie took to Twitter to explain that the trip was taken prior to the ban.

Otherwise, Rosie has had plenty of good times in South Florida over the years.
