Madonna has added menopause mentor to her list of talents after helping best pal Rosie O'Donnell through the 'mid-life crisis'.

Rosie admits she has been e-mailing her A League of Their Own co-star for advice after struggling with the early signs of menopause.

The actress/TV presenter reveals, "She's great, she's a lot like a big sister. When I started having my hormone things, I'm like, 'What the hell is going on?' (and) she's like, 'Get the cream.'"

Candid O'Donnell tells U.S. talk show host Tyra Banks, "I am about to be 47... and Aunt Flow (period) has not shown up for nine months."

And she reveals her mid-life crisis started six years ago: "I would be in the bed, and I would wake up and the sheets would be soaking wet - not damp - soaking wet."
