It’s been seven years since Rosie O’Donnell shared a view with Barbara Walters, and on Feb. 7th, she will share it again. Rosie will return to The View for the first time since her controversial exit in 2007.
Rosie left her co-hosting chair amidst a contract dispute and rumors that her and Elizabeth Hasselbeck did not get along. Since then, Walters said that she has stayed in contact with Rosie and has “great affection” for her and is happy to welcome her back to the show.
Rosie has wanted to go back to the show for many reasons; one being that this will be Walters’ last year and she wanted to say goodbye. Another reason is because she wanted to promote her new TV show on ABC The Fosters, and her one woman show.
