Rosie O’Donnell on Who Do You Think You Are?

Who Do You Think You Are?

More than just a rumor, for Rosie O’Donnell has confirmed this herself on her radio show. It appears that Rosie will be on an upcoming episode of NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? and she’ll be researching her mother’s Canadian and Irish roots.

Two recent items back this up: Rosie was seen filming part of the episode at the Jersey City Public Library in Jersey City, NJ. Also, here is what Rosie has posted on her blog and discussed on her radio show yesterday, November 18, 2010:

Rosie said the crew of Who Do You Think You Are was in the studio today because they’re beginning their journey of looking into her mother’s family ancestry.  Rosie thinks it’s a really good show and is excited Lisa Kudrow asked her to do it.  She really didn’t know if there would even be a good story to tell about her mother’s side of the family and is excited to learn more.  All she knows is that they will be traveling around the east coast of the United States and then leaving the country twice.  She ASSUMES she’s going to Ireland and possibly Canada but isn’t sure.  Rosie’s mother was Irish and an only child and Rosie and her brother Ed (who is going on this journey with her) are really hoping they’ll go to Ireland as part of it.  She literally won’t find out where they’re flying to until she arrives at the airport!

As they say, stay tuned! And as we come up on the January 21, 2011 premiere date of the second season of Who Do You Think You Are?, isn’t it about time we know who the celebrities are and what areas of their family history they’ll be researching?
