Rosie O'Donnell's Dr. Oz Interview: Focus on Women and Heart Disease

Rosie O’Donnell is hoping her recently filmed interview on “The Dr. Oz Show” will hope raise some much needed awareness on heart disease and women.

“heart disease kills more women than men,” she wrote on her blog Sunday. “233,00 a year. every 20 seconds a woman has a heart attack in america. 50% of deaths happen in the first hour.”

The 50-year-old had a jarring wake up call on the disease after she survived a potentially fatal heart attack in August. With the help of such experts as the esteemed Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, she immediately switched to a plant-based diet to help turnaround her health.

“this crazy summer has taken me into uncharted territory,” she wrote earlier on her blog. “into mornings that begin at 7. long walks and vegetables.”

Her interview with Dr. Oz will apparently cover her new health transition, heart disease and women, and her wife’s battle with desmoid tumors. Set to air on October 8th, it’s already receiving wise praise for those that attended the taping.

“so now tending to my body, a new mountain to climb, a place to return to, pre shame,” O’Donnell wrote on her blog.

We wish Rosie all the luck in her new adventure – and look forward to hearing her speak about the experience next week!
