    Rosie O’Donnell Buys $5 Million Dollar House on Casey Key

    The strange story of how Rosie O'Donnell came to buy a $5 million dollar house on Casey Key.

    Florida real estate sure has its twists and turns. Take, for example the strange story behind Rosie O’Donnell’s new home on Casey Key. It all started when the comedian/TV personality decided to, in effect, downsize and sell her 11,000 square foot home (with 12 bedrooms and 11-and-a-half baths) on exclusive Star Island in Miami.

    Rosie bought the place in 1999 for $6.79 million and put a lot of money into it. She even built two separate guest cottages on the property. But with a new girlfriend—and now wife, Michelle Rounds—well, you know how it is. The new wife doesn’t want to live in the old wife’s house.

    So they found a place a little farther up the coast, in Jupiter, which just happened to belong to Olivia Newton John. The girls put in an offer ($5.5 million) and the contracts were being put together. Then, as some minor repairs were being done to the house, the way they are when you’re buying and selling a house, one of the contractors shot himself in out by the pool and unfortunately died.

    Olivia immediately performed an exorcism to clear the house of bad energy and hopefully save the deal but Rosie just didn’t feel right about it. So she started looking around again and then, through a chance Twitterencounter with Sarasota Realtor Jill Friedman, she discovered the house on Casey Key.

    Rosie and Michelle’s new home, at the more exclusive north end of the key, was built in 1998 and remodeled in 2009. It’s not enormous, just 4,669 square feet, and has only four bedrooms, which may be a problem with five kids, one of whom is an infant. (Luckily, there are seven bathrooms.) The style is “Carribbean beach house†and it’s really very unpretentious.
    The only catch? They’re neighbors with Stephen King. His horror classicDuma Key, about haunted beachfront mansions, takes place, well, pretty much right where Rosie’s new home is.
    Hope she kept that exorcist’s phone number…

    Man, everytime I see these larger houses of celebs I go straight to, "what's the fuckin' upkeep?"

    She's gotta hire so much of that shit out. It's not so much a money thing. She now has to deal with people working on her place on at least a weekly basis.

    Seems like a PIA.

    Seeing that Rosie only spent $5 million on a vacation home, Howard is so concerned that Rosie is in financial dire straits that he is only going to ask her to donate $500k to the Bianca Romain Stamos Stern Ostrosky Animal Shelter for the Incredibly Stupid and Vapid.

    Rosie obviously isn't trying to buy her way into the stuffy crowd.

    Less than 5,000sqft doesn't even qualify as a guest house for the Wigged Wonder

    That pool and beach look great for sunbathing. Rosie should love that.

    it's 4600 sq ft...really not that much for someone with a bunch of kids. it looks like a pretty, unpretentious and comfortable house.

    $5 million sounds like cutting corners. That place probably doesn't even have a Schwoogie Buzzer in every room.
