Though not confirmed by ABC yet, everyone’s talking about Rosie O’Donnell’s return to The View. Naturally, her former co-host and often combatant Elisabeth Hasselbeck has a few words to say about the situation.

Not even a stay-cation could prevent Hasselbeck from chiming in. She called into Fox & Friends‘ Wednesday’s show from home. Not surprisingly, she didn’t have too many positive words about Rosie’s comeback. She even suspects that this has been in the works for some time now, stating Barbara Walters’ farewell episode was more like O’Donnell’s “hello show.” Listen to her thoughts below, along with what Rosie told her during Walters farewell show.

Is Rosie O’Donnell Heading Back To The View?

Ever since it was revealed Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd weren’t returning for Season 18 of The View, speculation has ran rampant on possible replacements for the departing co-hosts.

One rumored candidate is none other than Rosie O’Donnell. Given that she left after a highly-publicized bout with Elisabeth Hasselbeck, it’s surprising she’d even entertain coming back. I guess after a failed talk show on OWN, Mama needs a way to pay the bills.

According to TMZ, O’Donnell has signed on the dotted line. Their sources also reveal an official announcement by the network is coming soon. Can you imagine Rosie and Whoopi Goldberg on the same panel? This should be good.

During the show’s holiday hiatus word leaked that both Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd weren’t returning to Season 18 of The View. On Monday, both co-hosts addressed their upcoming departures.

In true McCarthy fashion, she made light of the situation and played a joke with the audience. She led by saying their exits were “not true,” which lead to an impromptu applause from the audience. After coming clean, Jenny said, “after much consideration, I’ve taken a new job, that will allow me to do what I do best, which is talk without having to interrupt anyone.” She didn’t reveal the new gig, but there are rumors it might compete with the long-running chatfest.

Shepherd, on the other hand, was far more emotional. She revealed she’s known she wasn’t returning since Spring but remained silent to not take away from Barbara Walters’ retirement celebration. Before breaking down in tears, Sherri quoted The Bible and even snuck in a Bill Clinton hooker joke about her exit. Watch the video below.

Prepare yourself for a completely different ‘view’ this September. With Barbara Walters now retired, the long-running daytime chat fest is receiving a whole new look for Season 18.

Since rival The Talk is improving in ratings, producers are looking to shake things up for The View. After seven years, Sherri Shepherd is also stepping down. Joining her is Jenny McCarthy who served on the panel for just one year. That leaves Whoopi Goldberg as the sole person standing. Whether that remains or not, we’ll find out soon enough. Rumors have it that producers are looking to add a male co-host or two. Check out both Sherri and Jenny’s statement below.

When did Oprah Winfrey become the official designate to officiate grand farewells? Earlier this year, she headlined a random star-studded line-up to bid adieu to Jay Leno. Today she popped up on The View to say goodbye to her idol Barbara Walters for the legendary journalist’s last day on the ABC daytime chatfest. If you thought yesterday’s show featuring every View co-host was epic, wait til you see this.

Winfrey wasn’t the only one inspired by Walters’ trailblazing career. Practically every notable female reporter on television today echoes that sentiment. Among the women who showed up to pay tribute to Barbara were Diane Sawyer, Connie Chung, Katie Couric, Robin Roberts, Jane Pauley and countless others. Listing them all off would take too much time. As Walters stated herself, these women are her legacy. Well said. Check out the touching moment below.

Rosie O’Donnell Returns To The View

Hell must’ve frozen over. I never thought I’d see the day, but Rosie O’Donnell returns to her former stomping grounds on February 7. Albeit as a guest, but still. I thought she’d never step foot on the daytime show again. I suppose with Elisabeth Hasselbeck no longer on The View panel, it was easier for producers to reach a détente with the former co-host. It’ll mark her first appearance since she moderated The View during its 2006-2007 season.

“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,” – Barbara Walters

After leaving the show, O’Donnell expressed she experienced something like post-traumatic stress disorder. A source tells People magazine that “She wanted to go back and visit The View to celebrate Barbara’s last season and talk about her ABC show The Fosters and her one woman show.” To relive the infamous fight between Hasselbeck and O’Donnell, watch the video below.

sherri-shepherd-apology-gay-comments

The View co-host is the most recent celebrity to issue a mea culpa for word-in-mouth disease. Sherri Shepherd addressed homophobic comments she made during a recent interview on the Tuesday episode of the ABC daytime talk show.

Last week, Shepherd sat down with Fusion host Alicia Menendez. When asked about what the biggest misconception The View viewers have had of her, Sherri replied, “I think people don’t know my heart. I think people feel I’m very judgmental. I think people feel I’m very homophobic.” She continued with, “If they knew me, and knew my heart. … You grow up being a Christian and you grow up believing homosexuality is a sin; you’re going to hell if you’re a homosexual. This is something that they teach in churches. So it’s something that I grew up believing.”

Like her initial interview, the 46-year-old television personality attempted to deny being anti-gay during today’s View episode, but still didn’t fully outright say she didn’t believe homosexuality is a sin. Check out her apology and Fusion interview below.
