Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – After leaving the show over half a decade ago, Rosie O’Donnell is coming back to “The View” on February 7, as a guest, the show’s executive producers announced Monday.
Show creator Barbara Walters said in a statement, “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.”
O’Donnell was part of the show’s panel starting 2006, commenting on current events and politics and such, some of which were rather controversial, one of which resulted in a public dispute with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. The actress-host altogether left the show in 2007.
Meanwhile, O’Donnell has neither confirmed nor denied her upcoming appearance, though she has re-tweeted news and other Twitter users’ comments about her said appearance.
The actress-comedian currently stars on the ABC Family drama “The Fosters.”
