Two titans of comedy came together when Wanda Sykes appeared with Rosie O’Donnell on The Rosie Show on the Oprah Winfrey Network Tuesday to chat about raising twins, Wanda’s starter boobs after breast cancer and their similar childhood dreams of single motherhood -- which Rosie points out might be a lesbian thing.

The pair discussed Wanda’s experience raising twins with her wife Alex, a bit the comic often touches on for laughs. But when Rosie asked Wanda if she had always wanted to be a mom Wanda said she imagined herself with kids but divorced.

“I guess now I know why,” Wanda joked.

Rosie chimed in that she had always pictured herself as a single mom.
“I guess that’s what little lesbians do,” Rosie added, laughing.

Wanda also spoke candidly about discovering she had breast cancer and why she opted for a bilateral mastectomy. But with Wanda it’s never too serious for too long because then she went on a riff about her new “starter boobs,” which are much smaller than her boobs were.

“I feel much better. You should see my golf swing,” Wanda joked. But added that it takes longer to get a drink in a bar with smaller boobs as she’s not just able to “slap my big boobs on the bar,” which always got the bartender to come running over.

Here are Rosie and Wanda talking about kids:
