O'Donnell Says She'll Quit Show In 2002

Rosie O'Donnell is planning to quit her syndicated talk show when her contract expires in 2002 so that she can devote more time to helping couples and individuals adopt children.

In an interview with the current issue of Ladies' Home Journal, O'Donnell said that she was "sick of all the crap that goes with" producing a daily TV show and that she gets more satisfaction from her Rosie Adoptions organization. "I get such a rush when I have a baby who's hard to place and I find a family that's overjoyed with the child," she said. O'Donnell has adopted four children.
