Rosie to Start New Magazine

Rosie O'Donnell is starting a new magazine.

Tentatively titled R Family, the new magazine will be subscriber based
and distributed by LPI Liberation Publications Inc., the same company
that publishes gay publications such as The Advocate, Out and Out Traveler.

O'Donnell is already author of a monthly column in The Advocate
called R Family.

Getting into a new magazine might seem like a bad idea for O'Donnell,
considering her catastrophic experience publishing Rosie with
Gruner + Jahr. But O'Donnell will own R Family outright, with LPI
doing the back office work and distribution.

She will not only have editorial control, but has already hired
Doug Turshen, the creative director who worked on Rosie until he
was fired by Gruner + Jahr, to work on the R Family prototype.
In fact, in the end R Family should look and read a lot like ... Rosie.
