Beth Chapman Explains How Taxpayers Paid Jerry Sandusky's Bond (VIDEO)

Beth Chapman, 'The Rosie Show'Beth Chapman may be a reality television star on 'Dog the Bounty Hunter,' but that's only her second gig. Her primary occupation is as a bail bondsman, so who better to explain how the taxpayers wound up footing the bill for Jerry Sandusky's release on 'The Rosie Show' (Weeknights, 7PM ET on OWN).

Chapman explained that Sandusky got a PR bond, which is usually reserved for first-time offenders of minor "scuffles." It gets suspicious when you consider that this was done on a Saturday and with a judge associated with Sandusky's charity presiding. Thus, the outrage that has occurred this week, or "the pack of wild moms," as Chapman called them, and Rosie O'Donnell is proudly a part of.

Jenny McCarthy, 'The Rosie Show'Just for fun, Rosie O'Donnell set up a version of 'The Dating Game' on 'The Rosie Show' (Weeknights, 7PM ET on OWN) to help Jenny McCarthy find a good man. McCarthy even adopted a goofy voice so none of the bachelors would know who she was.

She threw them for a loop when she asked one of them if he was okay with her being pregnant with Justin Bieber's baby. But they turned around and flattered her, without her even knowing it, in their response to her next question.

"If you could date any of the following celebrities, who would it be: Kate Hudson, Jenny McCarthy or Natalie Portman?" The response was unanimously Jenny McCarthy.

Florence Henderson, 'The Rosie Show'Florence Henderson spent five weeks as a hoofer on 'Dancing With the Stars,' an experience she equated to her time on Broadway on 'The Rosie Show' (Weeknights, 7PM ET on OWN). It's a lot of hard work, and when the curtain goes up you either soar or you fall, but either way it's live.

"When they first asked you, did you say yes right away?" Rosie O'Donnell asked her.

Henderson admitted to being a huge fan of the show already by that point. "I was in the audience often," she said. "When they asked me ... I said, 'Oh yeah, thank you!'"

Rosie O'Donnell Remembers Meeting Mariah Carey When She Was 'Little, Little' (VIDEO)

Mariah Carey, 'The Rosie Show'If you were able to look back through your history, there's a chance you had a brush with someone famous, only it happened before they were famous. Rosie O'Donnell encountered a beautiful little girl named Mariah years ago, as she explained on 'The Rosie Show' (Weeknights, 7PM ET on OWN). Even after Mariah Carey blew up on the music scene, O'Donnell didn't make the connection.

It wasn't until someone pointed out that Carey had grown up on a certain street that O'Donnell realized it was the same little girl she used to sing to at the bus stop. It's just kind of crazy to imagine what some of the people you've encountered along the way may have gone on and done with their lives -- and you don't even know you knew them way back when.

Criss Angel, 'The Rosie Show'Criss Angel didn't go for the scare on 'The Rosie Show' (Weekdays, 7PM ET on OWN), but he still knew how to freak out Rosie O'Donnell. It sounded simple enough, when he said he was going to untangle a string in his mouth. What he didn't add was that he was going to use his eye socket as well.

"Oh, don't do something creepy," O'Donnell said as he put the string in his mouth. And then when he reached for his eye, she almost couldn't watch. "Are you doing the creepy thing?" she asked, before getting the answer she didn't want.

Set 100 years before 'Mad Men,' 'Hell on Wheels' looks at the building of the transcontinental railroad. But even though it's set so far in the past, series star Common talked on 'The Rosie Show' (Weeknights, 7PM ET on OWN) about how so many of the issues it talks about still resonate today.

"Definitely we still deal with some racial issues," he said of the series. "Along with that, just greed and injustice." He talked about how the construction project tore up the natural landscape, and saw America taking more land away from the Native Americans.

They were, of course, talking about Morgan's controversial live show in which he was accused of being homophobic for comments he made. I felt hurt because the people who were at my show were hurt, "I don't pride myself on hurting anyone with the mic. That's so easy to do."

Nancy Grace, 'The Rosie Show'Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus took time out of their busy rehearsal schedule for 'Dancing With the Stars' to stop by 'The Rosie Show' (Weeknights, 7PM ET on OWN). Rosie O'Donnell asked about nerves on the show, and especially on elimination night.

Twice Grace has been left in jeopardy until the last moment, but she said the first time it happened was easily the worst. "I almost vomited on him," she said of MacManus. "But he didn't have a shirt on."

She marveled that wardrobe has been putting him in less and less and her in more and more, but O'Donnell said that's understandable after Grace's malfunction. But Grace is still insisting the "nip-slip" never happened.

An early front-runner, Phillips found her time on the show cut short after a disastrous tango. Rosie O'Donnell asked if it was just a "brain fart," which Phillips felt summed it up pretty well. She was prepared, but "once I lost my steps, I couldn't recover."

But she revealed on 'The Rosie Show' (Weeknights, 7PM ET on OWN) that she had a rather different job as well, and one that did require a bit of acting.

By unique, though, we apparently mean her and four other women who looked remarkably like her ... and Janet Leigh, apparently. The women were part of a daily recreation of the classic 'Psycho' shower scene.
