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.
