Rosie O'Donnell begins her new venture The Rosie Show with a monologue, guest games and special celeb interview, which all premieres Monday night on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).

The Chicago-based ''Rosie Show'' debuts Monday night on the OWN, which is slated to have a format, including celebrity interviews, games and lifestyle segments.

O'Donnell, 49, was dubbed the Queen of Nice for her '90s hit The Rosie O'Donnell Show. But she's also been a queen of controversy for her opinions as a cohost of The View, Tulsa World reports.

Although, her new, revamped show will be produced at Harpo studios in the city's West Loop, the same studio where Oprah produced her show.

Oprah said to be yourself and, 'Don't resist anything.' That's all she told me, O'Donnell told the paper during a recent teleconference. The fact that she asked me to do it was the biggest validation of my life. That was all I needed. She made me believe that I could.

According to reports, O'Donnell has just moved into her North Side home, where one of her four children and her new girlfriend will live.

O'Donnell's first guest Monday will be Russell Brand, a man she says is giving Tom cruise big competition as her favorite actor!

The Rosie Show her new talk show airs at 6 P.M.CT.
