So the women who called our American Soldiers terrorists is returning to The View? Well, that’s just Rosie
ABC executives are in the process of bringing Rosie O’Donnell back to co-host “The View,” a well-placed insider tells FOX411.
It would be the second time around on the show for the controversial comedian, who left in 2007 after just one season.
“The network executives really wanted Rosie back,” the insider said. “They’re confident she has what it takes to add some controversy and drive the ratings up. It is a smart fit.”
After O’Donnell’s first time in the hot seat, ABC said in a statement that it was unable to agree on a contract to bring her back for a second season. O’Donnell, in her own statement, said “my needs for the future just didn’t dovetail with what ABC was able to offer me.”
“They wanted me three years, I wanted one year and it just didn’t work,” she said then. “I’m not sad – I loved it here.”
O’Donnell returned to “The View” as a guest in February.
