"I can confirm that Rosie and her wife Michelle split in November, O'Donnell's rep said Friday. "Rosie has teens and an infant at home that need her attention. This has been a very stressful situation. She is putting her personal health and family first. ABC has been wonderfully understanding and supportive of her personal decision to leave The View. Next week will be her last."
O'Donnell and Rounds married in June 2012 and they adopted a baby girl in 2013. O'Donnell, 52, has four other children and was previously married to Kelli Carpenter.
"Rosie is an immensely talented star who comes in each and every morning brimming with ideas, excitement and passion for the show. When she told us she wanted to exit The View, we respected and understood her desire to put her well-being and her family first," a statement from ABC read.

"We're delighted she's still part of the ABC family with upcoming guest appearances on The Fosters, and we know she'll return to The View often with her unique point of view and updates on her work and her family."
As RadarOnline.com has reported, friction at The View was spilling into the comedian's home life. "Rosie gets so worked up with the show that she doesn't have the time or the patience for her family," a source said.
