Personal Quote:

[To participants at the launch of the 2011-12 TV season] I have gotten better. We had dinner last week, and I was pretty good the whole dinner. I made sure not to have one drink. I was, like, 'Give me a Diet Coke and talk slowly. Mommy needs to not scare the new employers, OK?' I can be overly enthusiastic, as some of you may know, but it's going well. See more »

Trivia:

Was a close friend of writer-director Nora Ephron. When Ephron was diagnosed with leukemia, she hid the illness from even her dearest friends, including O'Donnell, until she died in 2012 at age 71. See more »
