Rosie O'Donnell returning to 'The View'

O'Donnell to join Whoopi Goldberg for upcoming Season 18


NEW YORK – Rosie O'Donnell is returning to "The View."

The ABC show confirmed the news Thursday with a Tweet right after it's live broadcast confirming that the comedian will be returning to the panel with Whoopi Goldberg for Season 18.

O'Donnell left the show after just one year in 2007 following a number of public disagreements with former co-host Elisabeth Hasselback and Donald Trump.

The news follows this week's announcement that the show's two fellow co-hosts, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy would not be returning.

No word yet on who will be joining Goldberg and now O'Donnell.
