Rosie O'Donnell Returns to The View Feb. 7

Barbara Walters is attempting to ramp things up, as she head's to the finish line on The View. Variety is reporting controversial ex-moderator Rosie O'Donnell will appear on Feb. 7.

O'Donnell's appearance will mark her first time returing to the couch since her departure in 2007. Walters said in a released statement:

I have great affection for Rosie and we have remained in contact throughout 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.

I hope they have the split screen ready.

WOW! This is a shocker, maybe Barbara retiring thinks maybe Rosie could be now be asset for ratings for the show. It would be interesting to see how Rosie & Whoopi could interact.

Another opportunity for Babs to treat her like a circus animal and clean up her own image.

Lol @ Babs' desperation. She is smelling the lowering ratings and is willing to pull all the stops to get some buzz back to the View.

Cool, I hope Rosie comes back for good now. With Barbara leaving this would work. And lord knows they need the ratings and Rosie would bring it!
