The former talk show queen was met with a questions from a pint-sized paparazzi about her rumored marital troubles while at an airport recently, and she posted a Rosie-style blog about the experience.
"marriage is hard i told him," Rosie recounted on her Web site in her Haiku-style blog. "when u r married 12 years / lemme know how it goes / it aint easy."
Rosie added that her comment reflects real marriage.
"thats all i got for u / its not a movie / or a sound bite for tv," she continued. "its real life / just like urs / a family figuring it out / and on we go."
Last week, a rep for Rosie, 47, told Access that she and Kelli, 42, are still a couple.
The couple has four children together – Parker, 14; Chelsea, who is 12 next month; Blake, 9, and Vivienne, 6.
