Rosie O'Donnell returned to The View today, seven years after leaving her spot as a host on the daytime talk show.

And the panel wasted no time getting straight to some controversial topics, bringing up Dylan Farrow's accusations against Woody Allen and asking for Rosie's take on them.

“I totally believe her," O'Donnell said simply, citing the 1992 investigation that did NOT result in charges against the director and telling folks to read the documents because:

"There was cause to prosecute, but they thought would be too traumatic for the 7-year-old child.”

Earlier this week, Barbara Walters defended Allen in a very awkward exchange between View colleagues, one that made the long-time reporter sound like she's in complete denial.

Take note of Walters' face here as Rosie states her stance:

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.

Rosie O’Donnell has revealed that she married girlfriend Michelle Rounds this summer in a secret NYC wedding before the latter's tumor-related surgery.

O'Donnell and Rounds tied the knot in a private ceremony June 9.

Both women recently suffered medical setbacks and had originally pushed their wedding back to next summer. Two weeks ago, Rosie suffered a heart attack.

Rounds' Desmoid tumors, removed in June, were described by Rosie as “a mysterious, rare – too often fatal disease that affects 3 in a million people.”

In a new blog post, Rosie wrote, “We were to wed 10 days ago but her illness forced us to postpone the wedding, luckily, as i was in ICU that day, when it rains … things grow like love and flowers, humans too.”

“We married in private before her surgery just the 2 of us. When we r both well enough [we] will have the wedding of r dreams, surrounded by those we cherish.”

In the meantime, Rosie is hoping to raise awareness and funds for the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation, including by selling original paintings on eBay.

All proceeds benefit DTRF (dot) org. Congrats, and here's wishing good health, to the newlyweds ... even Donald Trump can join us in that sentiment!

Rosie O'Donnell is resting comfortably at home today, following a major health scare last week: the former talk show host suffered a heart attack and considers herself lucky to be alive.

But might have that frightening incident have led to a thawing in one of Hollywood's most icy feuds?

After learning of the news, Donald Trump - the same Donald Trump who has referred to Rosie as a "pig, a "degenerate" (below) and "a loser" - actually Tweeted the following message to his occasional rival:

"Rosie, get better fast. I'm starting to miss you!"

O'Donnell apparently read the Tweet and was as taken aback by it as anyone, writing back: "well thank u donald - i must admit ur post was a bit of a shock ... r u trying to kill me ? xx"

No, Rosie, Trump is just doing what Trump does: jumping on whatever to hot topic is making headlines in order to stay relevant himself.

Your heart attack is simply this week's contrived birth certificate debate.

Rosie O'Donnell suffered a heart attack last week and is now recovering at home.

The comedian/actress/talk show host blogged about her health adventure yesterday, giving credit to the Internet and the Bayer aspirin she had seen recommended on commercials for saving her life.

"Thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally," O'Donnell wrote on her website.

The star's coronary artery was 99 percent blocked, leading doctors to insert a stent and leading Rosie to say she is "lucky to be here."

The incident took place on August 14, as O'Donnell explains she helped an "enormous woman" get out of her car in a Nyack, New York parking lot. Later that day, her arms grew sore and her skin clammy.

"maybe this is a heart attack," she wrote. "i googled womens heart attack symptoms/i had many of them/but really? – i thought – naaaa."

Rosie O'Donnell has been forced to delay her wedding to Michelle Rounds, for a terribly sad reason:

Rounds has been diagnosed with aggressive fibromatoses, a rare onset of desmoid tumors that first cropped up on Mother's Day when she awoke with "pain that [wouldn't] let up," according to Rosie's new blog entry.

It took awhile for doctors to determine her loved one's ailment, O'Donnell added, writing of how the couple felt at the time:

"We wander thru the maze of medical mystery confused – scared . . .undiagnosed – again and again, her pain grew worse. It seemed impossible no one knew what was wrong."

Finally, the proper diagnosis was made - there are only 900 new cases of the disease each year in the U.S. - and Rounds underwent surgery in June. Rosie says she's "getting stronger every day."

The couple, who got engaged in December, will now get married next summer. In lieu of gifts, they ask for donations to be made to the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation.

Rosie O'Donnell is not holding back in her strange crusade against Lindsay Lohan, saying if she doesn't change her life, she could die like Whitney Houston.

Rosie went back on Today show this morning to expand on why she believes LiLo should not have been cast as Liz Taylor in an upcoming Lifetime movie.

Or any acting role, for that matter.

O'Donnell suggested Lindsay is heading down a similar path as the late, great Whitney Houston, and can only be saved if she takes time off from showbiz.

Rosie O'Donnell on Today

The ruthless Hollywood machine is slowly killing Lohan, Rosie feels, and she says feels obligated to speak out about the 25-year-old actress because:

"Watching Whitney Houston's funeral I recall thinking, 'Why didn't more people say what they knew?' We all knew. We watched Being Bobby Brown - it was like watching Sid and Nancy ... they were people in the throes of addiction."

"All anyone cared about was that the show was getting ratings. To look at Lindsay Lohan, you can't help but feel for her ... and I do not think she's untalented, I think she's quite talented. But this is a dangerous situation."

What do you think? Is Rosie totally off base or should she zip it? Lindsay has brushed off her attacks, but might she be better off heeding the warnings?

VOTE: Whose side are you on?

Lindsay Lohan is said to be in shock that Rosie O'Donnell bashed her on live TV yesterday, believing she always had a great relationship with the talk show host.

She's not exactly Donald Trump, in other words.

Sources in LiLo's camp say was never any bad blood between the two, and that Lohan and O'Donnell were always on great terms ... or so she thought anyway.

  • Lindsay Lohan Listens

Lindsay always had a special fondness for Rosie, even. One of Lindsay's first ever talk show appearances, at age 12, was on Rosie's old show back in 1998.

But, though she's surprised, Lindsay isn't upset that Rosie slammed her and her upcoming Liz Taylor role ... it just adds more fuel to the comeback fire!

Why waste time worrying about the haters, right? As far as Lohan's concerned, Rosie's just another doubter she's gotta prove wrong. Her rep concurs.

Reacting to the tirade, Lohan's publicist told E! News Tuesday: "I think Rosie should focus on her own career and stop worrying about everyone else's."

Bam.
