Rosie O'Donnell, the former co-host of The View—a daytime talk television show that sometimes painted police in less than a positive light—is reportedly engaged to marry a police officer with the Worcester (MA) Police Department.

The 56-year-old O'Donnell confirmed to People Magazine on Monday her engagement to 33-year-old Elizabeth Rooney, a member of the WPD Mounted Patrol Unit.

"She lives in Boston now and I live here in New York. It's been a long-distance thing. It's been great. I think she's a wonderful woman," O'Donnell said.
