(Newser) – Rosie O'Donnell finally discussed her relationship problems on yesterday's The Howard Stern Show, but let's just skip right to the best part of the interview: Rosie's almost-date with Angelina Jolie. "She gave me her phone number," O'Donnell says. "There was a tentative plan to have dinner that never came through. I was a little afraid of her. She’s scary in a sexual kind of way. I have dreams about her a lot still."

Rosie also gave her two cents on rumors that Oprah Winfrey is gay, saying that her friendship with Gayle King is the emotional equivalent of a gay coupling: "When they did that road trip, that’s as gay as it gets." Of her own partner Kelli Carpenter, O'Donnell says, "I don’t know that we’re going to be together. I think we’re working through what’s best for all of us." (Read more Rosie O'Donnell stories.)
