Rosie O'Donnell Miami Mansion

Rosie O'Donnell Miami Mansion, Rosie O’Donnell’s Miami Beach house has been put on the market just 11 days after it was announced her chat show was to be axed.

The comedienne television host has listed her mansion on Star Island for a $19,500,000 after originally buying her pad for $6,750,000 in 1999.

The 50-year-old’s property is more than 11,000 square feet in size and is situated on a 48,266 plot of land with 203 linear foot of a southeast-facing waterfront view.

While it is unknown whether her decision to leave the luxurious estate – which also features two private guest houses - is related to her TV program being chopped from the Oprah Winfrey Network after just six months of being aired, this is the second home the brunette has put up for sale in March.

Just one day after being put on the market earlier this month, her 12-room, 6,000-square-foot house in Chicago – where the show was first filmed before being moved to New York - found a buyer.

Hours after O'Donnell listed the five-bedroom house for $2.5 million, the home went under contract according to the Chicago Tribune.

The star bought the house last autumn for $2.25 million from Erik Logan, the president of OWN.

Though O'Donnell occupied a corporate apartment while working in the Windy City, she had lived in the home for a time.

However, the Chicago Tribune reported that with her children visiting her in Chicago from their Big Apple home only on weekends, the talk-show host felt she did not need as much space.

But less than two weeks later it emerged her show was to be cancelled, reportedly sparking a feud between Winfrey and Rosie.

A source told RadarOnline: 'Oprah wanted to handle the announcement of the cancellation in a professional and dignified manner. Rosie thanked Oprah for the opportunity and ended the conversation very abruptly.'

But Rosie was apparently unhappy at the language used in the press release making Oprah's decision public.

When Oprah's public relations team at OWN asked Rosie to call Oprah directly, she failed to do so and got her own camp to act as a go-between, the website claims.
