According to various reports, comedienne Rosie O'Donnell is returning to The View as co-host, following her controversial exit from the talk show seven years ago.
Two weeks ago it was announced Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy would not be returning to the program come September, and with showrunner Barbara Walters having retired in May, the producers have been searching for three replacements to join remaining co-host Whoopi Goldberg at the table.
A TMZ source claims the ABC show is looking to add more diversity with the addition of a Latina host, but are also looking to fill the "conservative" role. Possible names being thrown around for the spot are MSNBC co-host Abby Huntsman and political commentator Margaret Hoover.
Rosie will reportedly be very involved in selecting the two remaining seat-fillers after famously clashing with former moderator Elisabeth Hasselbeck during the 2006-2007 season.
The actress backed out of her contract early after the duo's differing views led to an ugly on-air spat. She left the show immediately after.
Explaining her decision to Oprah Winfrey, the 52-year-old said at the time, "I didn't want to argue for a living. It was not my show, and I didn't have the control that I was used to."
As for the boss' relationship with the Long Island-native? Barbara recently stated she has "great affection for Rosie" and revealed they've remained in contact throughout the years.
