Love her or hate her, Rosie O’Donnell and you have something in common. Besides the whole talk show thing, this celebrity has a love for home theater.
O’Donnell is kicking off a brand new talk show, which is titled, The Rosie Show. It debuts October 10, 2011, on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network. The show will be based out of Oprah’s Harpo Studios in Chicago, so O’Donnell needed a place to put her feet up during downtime.
The self-proclaimed Queen of Nice recently used some of her vast talk-show fortune on a place in the Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. The 6,000-square-foot home has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a heated three-car garage, and one sweet home theater room.
Check out a quick pic of the home theater room below. There aren’t too many details on what’s inside, but we know she won’t be squinting at a small screen. Besides the projector and screen, there also appears to be in-wall speakers and enough comfy seating for her large brood.
Other perks include 11-foot ceilings, a rooftop deck and a state-of-the-art security system to keep out the fans (and foes). There’s also a sports bar, which showcases some memorabilia, as well as three wall-mounted flat screens.
O’Donnell supposedly paid $2.5 million for the property. Check out more photos at Zillow.com.
