The View has now officially purged everyone except Whoopi Goldberg, so the daytime table needs to fill some seats. And if a new TMZ report has any teeth to it, one face returning to the show pretty soon will be none other than Rosie O’Donnell, who was famously one of the show’s co-hosts from 2006 to 2007.
TMZ reported yesterday that O’Donnell is in “active negotiations” to join the show, but today they followed it up with another report saying the deal is official, O’Donnell will return to The View, and ABC is expected to make the announcement soon.
The report also says The View is actively seeking out conservative women to join the show. Sarah Palin put herself out there this week as a possibility, but it might just be a teensy bit more difficult for someone now actively calling for the president’s impeachment to secure a role on the daytime talk show. Then again, O’Donnell has her own fringe ideas.
