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).
