Have Rosie O'Donnell and Kellie Carpenter-O'Donnell separated?

Yes, Rosie O'Donnell and Kellie Carpenter-O'Donnell are separated. At least, that's what The National Enquirer is telling us.

According to our friends over at Celebitchy, the couple, who married in 2004 in San Francisco, is now living in separate spaces—Rosie in the family's Nyack, N.Y., home and wife Kellie in a Manhattan apartment. According to the magazine, Kellie has youngest daughter Vivienne with her, while children Parker, 14, Chelsea, 12, and Blake, 7, are with Rosie.

After The Enquirer ran their piece, the ever hard-working folks at People decided to call up Rosie's rep to see if there was any truth to the rumor. Rosie's rep said there was not, also saying:

This is ridiculous. ... I get this rumor every time Rosie travels for work. Right now she is on tour with Cyndi Lauper.

However, even with People calling The Enquirer's bluff, the tabloid isn't backing down. They spoke to a "source" close to the family that not only confirmed the situation, but also explained:

Rosie is having her people deny the split because she's desperately trying to convince Kelli to come back to her. In the meantime, Rosie is being a trouper and is carrying on with her tour.

Now, we're torn on who to believe here. Typically, we'd side with People and the reps, but The National Enquirer has been on top of such stories in the past. Let's just hope the couple is either still together, or can work it out.
