Rosie O'Donnell Buys Her OWN Home in Chicago

Rosie O'Donnell is banking on her upcoming Oprah Winfrey Network talk show being a hit -- because she plunked down a hefty sum for a crash pad in Chicago.

The 5 bedroom, 6,000 square foot home was listed at $2.5 million -- and the buzz is ... she paid close to the asking price.

The home comes with a heated, three-car garage and a sports bar.

According to the Chicago Tribune -- Rosie gets to keep all the furniture -- hopefully, there's a jukebox in the sports bar.
