Rosie O'Donnell's marriage to partner Kelli Carpenter is in trouble. In an interview at her Nyack home, the TV personality refused to answer a USA Today reporter's question about whether the pair had split, which has been rumored since summer.

"We're a family. We will remain a family forever. And we are working on our issues," O'Donnell said.

The Commack native, 47, also would not say if Carpenter, 42, had moved out of their Nyack home and into Manhattan, as the National Enquirer reported in August.

The couple married in San Francisco in 2004 and have three adopted children - Parker, 14, Chelsea, 12, and Blake, 9 - as well as Vivienne, 6, a daughter Carpenter gave birth to through artificial insemination.

"They're adorable and wonderful and they are, by far, a priority," O'Donnell told the newspaper.

"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," she said.

O'Donnell continued: "Everything's fine and everybody's good and we're still both raising them together. We will both continue to parent them and we're friendly and everything's all right."
