"I'm not [enjoying the single life]," O'Donnell, 47, told at Rosie's Broadway Extravaganza in NYC on Monday. "But on we grow, so to speak."

The comedienne and Kelli Carpenter, 42, wed in 2004, but earlier this month she revealed that Carpenter moved out two years ago. She had said they kept it a secret for the sake of their children — son Parker, 14, Chelsea, 12, Blake, 9, and Vivienne, 6.

Still, she's gotten some help in dealing with the separation.

"My little dog, Missy, is great," she told Us of the pet she "got" in the split. "I love animals. I think they are really important to people to connect to somebody."
