Rosie O'Donell had a near death scare recently but that hasn't slowed down her comedic talent and her affection for other people.
O'Donnell showed how much she's such a huge fan of TLC's hit reality show "Here Comes Honey Boo" in an interview with People magazine.
In the video interview, O'Donnell displayed a spot-on impression of Mama June and then expressed that she would like to help the family the best way she could - by buying them a new house.

"I'd love to meet them," Rosie O'Donnell told People, "and buy them a house."
"I love Mama June. I love Sugar Bear. I love Chubbs," O'Donnell said of the family members by nickname. "I love 'em all."
O'Donnell gave her best impression of "Honey Boo Boo" star Mama June.
In a mockup scene, O'Donnell pretends she's Mama June cheering her daughter Alana at a pageant.
"I love 'Smoochie! Look at Mama, Smoochie! Look at the judges,' " she says while blowing kisses.
O'Donnell also complimented the show's lead star, 7-year-old Alana Thompson, by comparing her to former child actress Shirley Temple.
"She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years," O'Donnell said of Thompson.
O'Donnell's offer to buy the family a house is not a bad idea considering the Thompson house, located in McIntyre, Ga. does have railroad tracks near their backyard.
Last week, the creators of "South Park" aired a spoof of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" for a special episode.
In the episode, titled "Raising the Bar," Mama June tries to pick out a "hog with pizzazz" at a pig farm.
"We wanna pick a pig that has pizzazz and knows how to work it, girl," Mama June says in the clip.
"I want that one!" Honey Boo Boo replied. She then points out another. "That pig over there gave me the evil eye. I want that one! I want that one!"
"Honey Boo Boo" has been such a hit that the TLC network has three HOLLAday specials (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas) and additional episodes of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" coming up.
