It’s been a whopping seven years since larger-than-life personality Rosie O’Donnell has been a part of “The View,” but executive producers Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie announced today that the actress/comedian is returning to the popular talk show!
Friday, February 7 marks O’Donnell’s appearance alongside current co-hosts Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy. As fans may recall, the current “The Fosters” actress previously held the position as moderator for “The View” from 2005-2007 but left under less-than-friendly circumstances (both a contract dispute with ABC and her inability to get along with former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck played out onscreen).

“The View” wants to hear from you. Tweet #theview during the live broadcast and selected viewer tweets will appear on screen during the show.
Scheduled guests for the week of DECEMBER 9-13 are as follows (subject to change):
- MONDAY, DEC. 9 – Guest co-host Clinton Kelly (ABC’s “The Chew”); Garth Brooks (“Blame It All On My Roots”); Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWOWW” Farley (“Snooki & JWOWW”) joined by their fiancés; a holiday performance from Johnny Mathis.
When five smart, high-powered, self-made women get together, claws generally come out and the fur flies. But that’s the exact opposite of what happened when CBS’s Watch! magazine recently gathered the women of “The Talk” — Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler — together for a very candid roundtable interview.
ABC’s “The View” is hosting a very special “Guy Friday” episode, and guess who’s popping in to co-host? The beloved Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing, “Dallas;” ex-Stephen Logan, “The Bold and the Beautiful”)!
On the show, which regularly features co-hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd, Duffy will help the team tackle subjects like the latest in sneaker fashions and how to talk to your kids about sex. But the highlight will no doubt be when Harrison Ford and Chadwich Boseman join the group to promote their latest film, “42.”
