During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show, O'Donnell gushed about her new girlfriend, saying they're already in love.

"I am in love. It’s the first time I’ve dated someone younger than me and it’s a very trippy thing," she said. "I get along with her so well. It’s kind of fascinating. The one thing that she doesn’t know? [Barbra] Streisand. I made her watch Funny Girl. She’s like, 'It was good.' I’m like, 'Come on!'"
