It's official -- Rosie O'Donnell is returning to The View.
ABC tweeted out the news earlier today (Thursday), saying, "ABC confirms Rosie O'Donnell returns as co-host of #TheView w/ moderator Whoopi Goldberg for Season 18."
She left the show in 2007 after one tumultuous season.
Donald Trump wasted little time expressing his disapproval.
After the official announcement, The Donald reached out to the New York Daily News to blast his old nemesis. "I think she’s got a great agent," he said. "Anyone with so many failures that can go back again and again is amazing to me. It’s very sad after the catastrophe that took place when she quit after she was mentally beaten up by Elisabeth [Hasselbeck]. Her show on OWN was a catastrophe, Barbara [Walters] hates her."
Trump thinks the move will have a positive effect, but only temporarily. "The show has really missed not having Barbara on it. With that said, it’ll have a short term positive impact, but then you have the long term. Rosie always self-destructs."
Nonetheless, Trump says he's willing to do the show. "It would be the hottest show of the week. I’m the first one they’ll think of."
