Question of the day

Friday, Jul 15, 2011

* From NBC Chicago

Rosie O’Donnell is in Chicago for her new gig at Oprah Winfrey’s former studios.

O’Donnell arrived to the Windy City this week to begin taping her new talk show, set to air in the fall.

In a video posted on Oprah.com, O’Donnell admits to being nervous about her return to daytime television as a talk show host.

* The Question: What advice do you have for one of our state’s newest residents?

Snark is heavily encouraged, of course.

    If I were her, I would not use my initials (RO’D) as part of my marketing strategy.


  2. - reform - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 11:53 am:

    Even though Rosie is a big advocate of banning guns, should keep her armed bodyguards when she’s in Chi-town.


  3. - Six Degrees of Separation - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 11:55 am:

    Don’t sign any long-term leases.


  4. - Nuance - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:02 pm:

    Invite Donald Trump to be a guest on your first show.


  5. - Anonymous - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:04 pm:

    Lose the obnoxious accent (adopt a more palatable Chicago accent).


  6. - Chicago - Mike - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:07 pm:

    Go back from where you came from


  7. - Niles Township - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:15 pm:

    She is not a new resident. She is still living in NY and flying in to tape shows.


  8. - Chi-town - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:17 pm:

    Rent, don’t buy. You won’t be here for long.


  9. - CircularFiringSquad - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:20 pm:

    don’t subscribe to the Tribune, but get the special 200 year Capitol Fax Package


  10. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:23 pm:

    CircularFiringSquad, there is no such thing.


  11. - mokenavince - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:25 pm:

    Please stay put in New York, I would hate to have
    you disrupt your family for us. Keep you accent
    it will insure a shorter stay here.


  12. - Wensicia - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:30 pm:

    She’s probably the only celeb I know who’s too obnoxious for Chicago. I doubt she’ll be here long.


  13. - GMatts - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:32 pm:

    Good News for donut sales, bad news for everybody else.


  14. - Cook County - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:42 pm:

    Wow. Folks are harsh on Rosie today. It’s Friday, everybody.


  15. - Todd - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:45 pm:

    Put the spoon down


  16. - JN - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:47 pm:

    Turn down singing gigs.


  17. - Cincinnatus - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:48 pm:

    Don’t let the door hit you in the backside on the way out.


  18. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:49 pm:

    These aren’t exactly the sort of Illinois-centric comments I had expected.


  19. - Robeman1957 - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:52 pm:

    Apply for your FOID asap since it’s taking up 3 months to get it.


  20. - Nice Kid - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 12:52 pm:

    Be less phony than Oprah.


  21. - Wumpus - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 1:04 pm:

    Ride the El and use your smart-phone a lot.


  22. - LincolnLounger - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 1:06 pm:

    Actually, “Niles Township”, Rosie has a residence in — of all places — Trump Tower. I read an interview in which she acknowledged the irony.

    I suspect her stay will be brief, but she already has discovered Gino’s East.


  23. - Niles Township - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 1:15 pm:

    LincolnLounger…she is still keeping her kids in NY in school there. She will be commuting. An occasional overnighter or here for a few days, but she will not be a Chicagoan.


  24. - Ghost of John Brown - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 1:20 pm:

    Can Illinois just get Cindy Crawford (DeKalb native) back instead as a trade?


  25. - Kerfuffle - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 1:25 pm:

    If you want to interview Blago on your show you had better be quick about making the necessary arrangements! Perhaps Don and Roma can put you on the inside track.


  26. - Jake From Elwood - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 1:25 pm:

    Buckingham Fountain was not named after a member of Fleetwood Mac. And I implore you not to greenlight the script for “Exit to Eden II”.


  27. - Lil Enchilada - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 1:33 pm:

    I wondered where all this hot air was coming from…


  28. - zatoichi - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 1:44 pm:

    Sign Blago as a man on the street reporter. Rod on RO’D. Marketing! He could bring all his Illinois friends to the show.


  29. - Aldyth - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 1:49 pm:

    See if you can get one of the ghosts reputed to haunt Harpo studios as a live guest on your show. Or not-alive guest, as it were.


  30. - OneMan - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 1:51 pm:

    Remember pizza is better here, also when a local pol gives you a hug and seems to be moving his hands all over your back he isn’t getting fresh he is checking you for wires.


  31. - dupage dan - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 1:54 pm:

    Ms O’Donnell,

    While you are here in Chicago I might suggest you visit the James Franck Institute which is located at the University of Chicago, a world leader in higher education. While you are there you can ask staff, at this world class institution for the study of metals, just how steel can melt in a fire. Or, maybe, just a visit to the local steel mills might be helpful.

    BTW, given the history of your last gigs, I would rent, not buy.


  32. - BEARS - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 2:11 pm:

    Chicago is not big enough for both Oprah and Rosie


  33. - jt - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 2:13 pm:

    Change her name to Rosie Oprah Donnell


  34. - MrJM - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 2:14 pm:

    • Pick a team. I suggest you pick the Cubs because then no one will expect you to know anything about baseball.

    • Use the CTA.

    • Complain about the CTA.

    • No ketchup on hot dogs.

    • No not eating hot dogs.

    • Downstate Illinois doesn’t start at Ogden Avenue.

    • Please don’t say “da Mayor,” “da Bulls” or “da Bears.” With your accent, it’s gonna make folks wanna smack ya.

    • Never forget that the city is bigger and more important than you are. If you keep that in mind, you’ll get along just fine.

    – MrJM


  35. - Easily Entertained - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 2:52 pm:

    Find Slats Grobnick.


  36. - Phineas J. Whoopee - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 3:21 pm:

    Run Exit to Eden in a constant loop for her employees so they can get used to her disciplining them.


  37. - wordslinger - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 3:29 pm:

    In winter, if someone places lawn chairs or milk crates marking a ahoveled out spot, it means they want you to park there. It’s that kind of friendly town.


  38. - The Third Ex Cub - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 3:41 pm:

    Join the LaSalle Street Rod & Gun Club.


  39. - railrat - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 3:43 pm:

    PULEEZE employee “O”s makeup people !!!


  40. - Judgment Day - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 5:08 pm:

    “PULEEZE employee “O”s makeup people !!!”

    Second That!

    Also, both rail access (those pesky rail tank cars) and Interstate semi truck access is very accessible to Harpo Studios, so your daily makeup deliveries shouldn’t be that difficult.


  41. - The Captain - Friday, Jul 15, 11 @ 5:14 pm:

    “The way it works is the train moves, the station doesn’t.”


  42. - Sensitive Ears - Saturday, Jul 16, 11 @ 9:07 am:

    Please don’t attempt to sing while in Illinois. Maybe just whistle or hum instead? Thanks.
