Things are looking good for Rosie O'Donnell these days: She's got a new show coming out on OWN, just purchased a huge home in Chicago and landed a stunning new girlfriend.

O'Donnell hit the red carpet for the first time last night with Michelle Rounds (left) -- and, according to People, the two met at Starbucks!

Rosie and Michelle, a headhunter for a New York IT company, have reportedly been dating for a few months.

The two made their first public appearance at a gala for Rosie's Theater Kids, an arts education organization dedicated to enriching the lives of children through arts.

FYI: Rosie just launched a charity auction for the organization, with great prizes including a visit to The Howard Stern Show, lunch with Lisa Lampanelli and an internship at Gucci for a summer in NYC.

For more information on the auction, which runs until October 4, check out the official website.
