NEW YORK — Proving nothing is impossible in the world of daytime television, Rosie O’Donnell is coming back to “The View,” at least for a day.

The show announced Monday that O’Donnell will be a guest on the daytime gabfest on Feb. 7.

O’Donnell’s tenure as a panelist on the ABC show seven years ago was notably stormy. O’Donnell said after leaving that she had experienced something like post-traumatic stress disorder, and show creator Barbara Walters said she resented the way O’Donnell dumped on the show.

Walters said Monday that she has great affection for O’Donnell. She called O’Donnell a lively and engaging guest who is a part of the show’s history.

This is Walters’ last season on the show.

  10. I meant that comment towards fox news not the view and certainly no disrespect to Rosie.

  17. I was once a huge fan, until she turned into a hardcore bully- maybe she has taken it down a few notches

    Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 at 5:36pm
  18. Who exactly did she bully? That stupid bitch Elizabeth Hasselbeck? The millionaire Congressmen who vote anti-gay?

  19. She just jams things down peoples throats is all. Altho if she did it to Elizabeth I would assist her in that regard :)

  21. Show hasn’t been worth watching since she left, due to being so very rudely treated!

    Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 at 5:48pm
  22. It’s just so funny how people come to comment who do not like her or the show… what the hell ya here for?

    Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 at 5:49pm

  27. Rosie – always is entertaining. I loved her most when she mocked Trump’s fake hair doo. It make me laugh even today. He is such a egotist and phoney.

    Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 at 6:10pm
  28. Well, I don’t like her anyway; so I don’t care.

    Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 at 6:12pm

    Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 at 6:36pm
  34. She is too much of a bitch now for anyone to fucking care. I wouldn’t watch it now because of her.

    Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 at 6:54pm
  35. Good for her now that Crazy Elizabeth is gone!

    Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 at 7:18pm

    Posted on Monday, January 27, 2014 at 7:23pm
