Rosie Staying at Trump While in Chicago

Rosie O'Donnell says OWN set her up in the Trump Tower penthouse while she tapes her new show in the Windy City

Rosie O'Donnell may need to bury the hatchet with Donald Trump.

At least while she's in Chicago.

O'Donnell told Howard Stern this week that Trump International Hotel and Tower will be her Chicago address while she tapes her new daytime talk show for the Oprah Winfrey Network.

And it's no small-potatoes place. OWN set her up in the Penthouse Suite, O'Donnell said on her SiriusXM radio show, Rosie Radio.

She and Trump are known for feuding after O'Donnell criticized him in 2006 for reinstating Miss USA Tara Conner.

Last month, Winfrey announced O'Donnell would take over the West Loop Harpo Studios after Oprah ends her long-running show there on May 25. O'Donnell's talk show is scheduled to air on OWN in the fall.

Following the announcement, O'Donnell addressed the Harpo staff in a taped message. 

“Thank you, Oprah," she said. "And thank all you people there. Some of you are going to be sticking around and helping us make a kick-ass show for the Oprah Winfrey Network.”
Besides her regular Sirius XM radio show, O'Donnell formerly hosted “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” from 1996-2002 and served as co-host on “The View" for a year.
