O'Donnell, who said last month she was done commenting on the reports about her breakup from Carpenter, went back on that promise while speaking with pet psychic Sonya Fitzpatrick on O'Donnell's Sirius Satellite radio show. When Fitzpatrick asked O'Donnell who looks after their Chihuahua, Misty, O'Donnell said her four children fight over who gets to care for the pooch.
"What happened [was] when Kelli moved out two years ago, I got the dog. Because I wanted another child or something to love. And I got the dog."
Last month, O'Donnell told USA Today, "We're a family, we remain a family.... Kelli and I love each other very much, and we are working on our issues. Those are the only words I am ever going to say. Ever. And that is something that has been agreed upon by all parties."
