(Newser) – The Material Girl can add another talent to her resume: menopause counselor. At least according to Rosie O'Donnell, who happily overshared in an interview on The Tyra Banks Show. Between investigating the source of all the sweat in her bed and cutting out booze, O'Donnell still has time to check in with pal Madonna, reports Us Weekly.

"She's great, she's a lot like a big sister," O'Donnell says. "When I started having my hormone things, I'm like, 'What the hell is going on?' she's like, 'Get the cream.'" Never one to withhold personal details, she continued, "I am about to be 47 next month and Aunt Flow has not shown up for nine months." (Read more Rosie O'Donnell stories.)
