Rosie O’Donnell to Make First Return to 'The View'
January 27, 2014
Rosie O'Donnell is set to make her return to ABC's The View for the first time since she left the daytime show as a co-host in 2007.
The network announced on Monday that O'Donnell, 51, will appear as a guest during The View's February 7 episode.
After leaving the show after Season 10, O'Donnell -- who currently guest stars on ABC Family's drama series The Fosters -- made no secret about behind-the-scenes tension she experienced with others while doing the show. She also frequently clashed on-air with former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck over news topics and politics.
In making the announcement, The View co-executive producer Barbara Walters said she's looking forward to welcoming O'Donnell back, if only for one day. "I have great affection for Rosie and we have remained in contact through 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," she said.
