Rosie O'Donnell won't get remarried just yet

Tbdrosieodonnell060608 While so many of you are debating the same sex marriages of celebs like Ellen DeGeneres to Portia de Rossi (they could be named deGenerossi!) and George Takei to Brad Altman, you'll read with great interest that Rosie O'Donnell has decided not to remarry her partner, Kelli Carpenter. At least, not until gay marriage is the law of the entire land.

O'Donnell told AP Radio that she and Carpenter are "going to wait until it's legal everywhere, because otherwise, I said to Kelli, we'll be going around touring the country on the marriage tour every state by state."

The 46-year-old married Carpenter four years ago when the mayor of San Francisco allowed same-sex marriages. The California Supreme Court later ruled those marriages weren't legal, because the court was apparently too busy ignoring a broken infrastructure, sub-par schools, a rising crime rate, immigration problems, a real estate market that would make starter homes $600,000 and a budget that would bankrupt the state government.

"Once it gets to be at the federal level, once every state recognizes the marriages of every other state, I think that'll be the time we would do it," O'Donnell said, adding that she doesn't plan on waiting long, since she thinks it will be legalized soon.

"The same way it was illegal for black and white people to marry at one point and people couldn't conceive of that ever being different, I do think that two consenting, law-abiding adults who want to share their life together should be allowed to do that," she said.
