Michelle Rounds reportedly tried to take her life earlier this week by overdosing on prescription pills. Estranged wife Rosie O'Donnell may have saved her life.

People magazine reports that O'Donnell somehow learned that Michelle Rounds was in distress. She reached her on the phone, and learned she had taken an overdose. Rosie got someone else to call 911 and then kept Rounds on the phone under paramedics arrived.

Michelle Rounds was taken to a hospital in Nyack, New York. Rosie O'Donnell provided comfort to her following the overdose.

It was back in February that Rosie O'Donnell filed for divorce from Michelle Rounds. Rounds has been seeking custody of the two-year-old daughter she and O'Donnell adopted together.

Entertainment Tonight reports that Michelle Rounds was treated for "a reaction to medication she was taking both for stress and for her condition [of desmoid tumors]." A source tells them there was no suicide attempt.

Rosie O'Donnell retweeted a post earlier this week. It's unknown if it was directed toward or in reference to the situation with Michelle Rounds.

Rosie O'Donnell and Michelle Rounds married in June of 2012. They split up in November of 2014.
