Rosie O’Donnell is content with being single.

“If something happened naturally, you know, maybe,” she told Page Six in an exclusive interview Tuesday. “But I don’t know. I’ve kind of settled in my routine.

“I got it all kind of like a well-oiled machine and I don’t know how much room, I have to tell you the God’s honest truth.”

That’s not to say that the “View” alum isn’t ruling out the possibility of romance.

“I’m always open to surprises,” she shared. “I’m open to see what falls in front of me, what wonderful pieces of art I get to consume —whether it’s listening to a podcast or whether it’s watching the latest episode of ‘Succession’ or that new show ‘Beef.’

“I really thrive on wonderful art, wonderful conversation, intellectual debate … and what I like to consume and it keeps me creatively inspired.”

The former talk show host, 61, called it quits with TikToker Aimee Hauer in October 2022 after less than a year together.

A month prior to their split, O’Donnell gushed about her then-girlfriend on the “Howard Stern Show.”

“I watched her little videos and every time I saw her I would smile and [be] like, ‘This woman is perfect. Look at her, she’s so happy and enthusiastic and bright and she has a light coming from her,’” the “SMILF” star said at the time.

O’Donnell added that she was very much “in love” and described Hauer as “really kind and wonderful.”

Before that, the comedian was married to Kelli Carpenter, with whom she shares children Parker, 27, Chelsea, 25, Blake, 23, and Vivienne, 20, as well as Michelle Rounds, with whom she adopted daughter Dakota, 10. Sadly, Rounds died by suicide in 2017.

O’Donnell was also previously engaged to Boston police officer Elizabeth Rooney, but the two broke up in late 2019 after two years together.

“The Fosters” alum is currently listening to a lot of podcasts and launched her own show, “Onward with Rosie O’Donnell,” last month.

“I was asked a long time ago [to do a podcast] and I sort of played with it in my head,” she explained. “But you know, I did a series last year, ‘American Gigolo,’ and it took so much time and it was during COVID and it was a lot of chaos and a lot of time away from home.

“And so, you know, my daughter is on the spectrum. She’s 10 years old and she really likes it when I’m home, right? So, I thought this would be a great thing to try to do to see if I could figure out how to use my voice in that way. And so we started.”

Recent guests on O’Donnell’s podcast have included comedian Margaret Cho, actress Brooke Shields and trans activist Dylan Mulvaney.

O’Donnell says the podcast should really be called, “Chatting With My Friends.”

“I didn’t want to have it be like somebody with something to promote,” she told us. “I wanted it to be just discussions with women that are my friends and issues that are facing us today as we get older … It’s about me at 61, just chatting with friends and hopefully giving people an hour to be away from it all.”
