Everything's Coming Up Rosie

The star has suddenly made appearances all over, from Broadway to milk cartons

Have you seen Rosie O'Donnell lately? How could you not? Recently, it's been all Rosie, all the time. Witness:

The movies: Rosie costars in the much-overhyped The Flintstones.
Broadway: Rosie stars in the way-overhyped-for-a-revival Grease.
Network TV: Rosie yuks it up with David Letterman on his Late Show.
The commercials: Bedrock resident Betty Rubble (a.k.a. Rosie) snacks at RocDonald's.
HBO: Continual reruns of Rosie's film debut, A League of Their Own.
MTV: Cindy Crawford special — there she is.
Tabloid TV: A Hard Copy exclusive on guess who?
Toy stores: For sale, action-size Betty Rubble/Rosie O'Donnell figurines.
Tuscan Dairy Farms skim milk containers: Bumping missing kids off the back of milk cartons, Rosie hawks tickets to Grease.

When we asked to speak to O'Donnell about her sudden omnipresence, her spokeswoman responded: "I'm not sure she wants to talk about it. Are you saying she's overexposed?"
