Rosie O'Donnell finds her former "View" co-host and sparring partner Elisabeth Hasselbeck "very attractive," she told Howard Stern Wednesday on his Sirius Satellite radio program.
"Were you not attracted to Elisabeth Hasselbeck?" Stern asked. "When you look at her physically, you don't want her?"
"See, the 'want' is the big thing," O'Donnell responded, suggesting she doesn't desire Hasselbeck. "I find her very attractive. She's very attractive, I think."
"Her body is perfect," Stern said.
"Have you seen her biceps?" O'Donnell replied.
Left-leaning O'Donnell chose to depart the ABC daytime talk show "The View" earlier than planned last year following an on-air confrontation with the more conservative Hasselbeck.
But O'Donnell said her fantasy woman is actually Angelina Jolie.
“That one I can go, ‘Oh my God!’ ” O’Donnell said. "She's got a little darkness — a little kind of weird sexuality going on."
O’Donnell described Stern’s fiancee, Beth Ostrosky, as “a too-perfect Barbie doll," but said of all the people she sat next to on "The View," she was the most "doable."
In other news, O’Donnell told AP Radio that she and her girlfriend, Kelli Carpenter, are going to wait to remarry, even now that California's highest court has ruled that denying same-sex marriages was discriminatory.
The comedian and Carpenter were married four years ago when the mayor of San Francisco allowed same-sex marriages. The California Supreme Court later declared such marriages invalid.
O'Donnell said she and Carpenter are going to wait to remarry "until it's legal everywhere, because otherwise, I said to Kelli, we'll be going around touring the country on the marriage tour every state by state.
"Once it gets to be at the federal level, once every state recognizes the marriages of every other state, I think that'll be the time we would do it," she said.
Asked if she thought that time was near, O'Donnell replied, "Yes."
"The same way it was illegal for black and white people to marry at one point and people couldn't conceive of that ever being different, I do think that two consenting, law-abiding adults who want to share their life together should be allowed to do that," she said.
