Rosie O’Donnell, her new girlfriend -- and all those kids!

Rosie O’Donnell and Kelli Carpenter are over -- turns out they have been for a while now. Now Rosie has a new girlfriend, Texas artist Tracy Kachtick-Anders, with whom she’s been enjoying Miami Beach this week.

Looks as if they’re having a nice time, yes? Apparently they met online.

But then we did some light reading -- wow, Tracy has six kids. Rosie, as we know, has four in her family.

It’s quiet here today, and the temptation is irresistible: That sucking sound you hear is our reality TV ‘creative brainstorming’ helmet being donned.


Now, the Ministry gets a bit fuzzy on mathematics when rivers of bubbly await, but yes, six plus four equals 10. And 10 is more than eight, albeit less than 14.

~~ The smell of ‘reality’ is getting really thick around here. This stupid helmet is coming off now -- it’s freaking me out. Should’ve had the Champagne *first.* ~~

So is it time for Nadya Suleman and Kate Gosselin to fear for their television futures?

Meh, we’re thinking they have absolutely nothing to worry about ...

Kachtick-Anders, an artist and LGBT-parenting advocate who has a special interest in foster and adoptive families, doesn’t seem like the type of person who’d ever leverage her little ones -- some of whom have special needs -- into any make-a-buck reality-TV train wreck.

We make this guess based on how she represents herself over at the Rainbow Babies parenting website. And with Rosie involved, the couple would have to aim for at least a few Emmy nominations.

Kick us out the door now, OK?

And a Happy New Year to all the moms mentioned above.
