Rosie O Donnell to Guest Star on The Fosters!

By Erica Brown Sep 20, 2013

We are so excited to announce that Rosie O’Donnell has signed on for a recurring role on The Fosters! She will play Rita Hendricks, a tough yet compassionate woman who works in the foster care system and becomes a mentor to a member of the Foster family. Rosie will appear in three episodes when the series returns in January 2014.

“When Rosie O’Donnell tweeted that she loved The Fosters, we knew we had to reach out and try to snap her up!” said the show’s creators and Executive Producers Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg. “Having witnessed her support of foster children and blended families, we knew she would be a perfect fit for the show.”

“I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful, heartwarming show,” O’Donnell added. “My kids and I never miss it.”
