MIAMI, Fla. -- Rosie O’Donnell has found a new ladylove.
Over the holiday, Rosie was spotted holding hands with new girlfriend Tracy Kachtick-Anders, an artist and mother of six.
“i am happy,” Rosie wrote on her official Web site in response to well wishes from one of her fans about her new relationship.
And it appears 2010 will be a new start for the radio talk show host, who revealed in November on her SIRIUS Satellite radio show that longtime partner Kelli Carpenter moved out “two years ago.”
“She’s really pretty Rosie. Wishing you “more reps and less stress,” and a loving relationship in 2010,” one Rosie.com reader wrote about Tracy.
“begin again in 2010,” Rosie replied. “life is good.”
And Rosie told her readers she was smitten with Tracy.
“She is very pretty. And happy looking! Best wishes,” a reader wrote, to which Rosie replied, “i agree.”
Rosie and Tracy were captured by the paparazzi as they held hands while walking in Miami on Tuesday, but this isn’t the first time the couple has been spotted together. Earlier this year, the two were photographed, but Rosie told her readers Tracy was simply a friend.
“So Ro, your new lady friend is the gal that had her picture taken with you on a jet ski in Miami a couple of months ago, right? The one that was “just a friend?” a reader asked.
“yes,” Rosie noted. “she was on the jet ski.”
While love may be in bloom for the star, Rosie doesn’t have any big plans for New Year’s Eve.
“home as usual,” she wrote.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Rosie finally opened up about her split with Kelli, her partner of 12 years, back in October.
“We have come to a point where we are seeing [if] what will make everyone happiest is maybe to not live together, but continue to parent,” Rosie previously told Howard Stern for “The Howard Stern Show.” “We have different styles of living. I’m very messy. She’s very not.”
“I thought you two we’re going to make it,” Howard’s sidekick, Robin Quivers, said.
“I did too, honey,” Rosie replied.
Rosie and Kelli have four children together.
