Rosie O'Donnell: Returning to The View!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Rosie O'Donnell is all set to enjoy The View for one last time. 

The controversial 51-year-old comedian and former View co-host will return to her old studio stomping grounds on February 7th. 

O'Donnell abruptly left the long-running talk show seven years ago following an epic on-screen fight with Elisabeth Hasselbeck, but it seems she's putting any hard feelings aside to come back and celebrate Barbara Walter's final season. 

"I have great affection for Rosie and we have remained in contact throughout the years. I am happy to welcome her back to the program. She is always a lively and engaging guest and a part of the show's successful history," Walters said in a statement, Variety reports. 

Rosie, who is currently guest-starring on ABC Family's The Fosters, previously stated that she felt like "a foster kid" during her stint at The View. 

Her former sparring partner, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, said goodbye to the panel this summer so don't expect to see round 2. (Unless she gets into it with someone else...)

Rosie O'Donnell: Officially Returning to The View!

Rosie O'Donnell is coming back to The View. Does this make you happy?




I have a close friend that did her hair and makeup and she said Rosie is nutty as a squirrel sh-t. Rosie believes Bush set up 911 so we would go to war with iraq. She acts like she's possessed by demons. She was constantly blowing up issues with the blond girl on the view. We all know blonde doesn't think a republican can do any wrong, but rose felt every opinion she had was personal and aimed at her. Elisabeth just wanted the conversation to end and that will be that. Not O'Donnell! She would stay angry. Let's be honest, the show sucks because there seems to be only one view now. Boring!


I haven't watched since she left cause it was a snooze fest. I'll watch it again when she comes back.
