Appearing at the TV Critics' press tour to explain why she wanted this gig and what to expect, the Commack native said that when she met Shaw at the request of her agent, "I was just absolutely shocked by her talent and the message and the kind of feminist perspective that she had in a very universal way". "I'm upset about it".
"My agent sent me the short films that Frankie did, and I was blown away by both of them", O'Donnell told reporters during the Showtime portion of the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour on Monday on the Paramount lot. I don't know what happened there, [Chris] is still living in the house.
"Let's pray it turns around, ' she said".
"I want them to get back together", she continued. In fact, the actress said she feels like just because two people have chosen to break-up, it does not mean that everyone needs to share in that particular heartbreak.
The 56-year-old businesswoman believes there's "still hope" for the pair rekindling their romance whilst the "Jurassic World" star is living with his estranged beau, as it indicates there's "still love" between them.
The Million Dollar Matchmaker told Entertainment Tonight that she's a good pal of the estranged pair, claiming they are still residing in the same house after announcing they would be legally separating.
'If the person doesn't leave the house, there's a lot of hope there. Because they're not poor... they could go get a condo, Airbnb it.
But despite their disagreements, she guaranteed that she would never contempt her husband just because they disagree on several issues.
"I feel like it's communication", Patti said, before dismissing reports that the split was down to Chris' Hollywood profile rising so fast compared to Anna's.
"I was actually on my Instagram reading, I was watching someone, and [Anna's post] just popped up", Stanger explained.
'I don't wanna bombard [Anna], but I do want them to know ... anything they need from me, I'm there for them. So, I'm not fixing them up - I would just be the counsellor between them and go, "What really is the issue here?"
Close friend and millionaire matchmaker Patti Stanger has offered a little ray of hope, saying the couple are still living under one roof meaning they could rekindle their love.
Our sources say there are other personal reasons for the split, but the way they see family in the long-term was a big factor in their decision. And maybe she feels she's taking care of [their 4-year-old son, Jack] too much.
