Rosie O’Donnell Returning to ‘The View’

Rosie O’Donnell is returning to “The View” as a co-host in the fall, ABC confirmed via Twitter a short time ago. ABC says O’Donnell will be a co-host of the show joining moderator Whoopi Goldberg. The show is looking for at least two other co-hosts, who may come from the cable news ranks.

O’Donnell left the show in 2007 after an infamous spat with former co-host and current Fox News host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Last night, O’Donnell responded on Twitter to comments Hasselbeck made about her. On “Fox and Friends” Wednesday, Hasselbeck said Barbara Walters‘ farewell show in May was really O’Donnell’s “hello show.” A Rosie fan chimed in:

The Daily News reports O’Donnell’s return might mean the departure of co-executive producer Bill Geddie. Rosie’s response to that:

The Daily News says if Geddie departs “The View,” he will move on to special projects at the network. An ABC spokesperson tells TVNewser, “Bill Geddie is the EP and is under contract with ABC.”
