Rosie O'Donnell is officially returning as a host for The View, and the show posted the news today on Twitter and wrote, "ABC confirms Rosie O'Donnell returns as co-host of #TheView w/ moderator Whoopi Goldberg for Season 18."

Rosie was on the show from 2006 to 2007, and after a squabble with Donald Trump (not to mention majorly butting heads with fellow co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck), she left and started her own show on Oprah Winfrey's network. Hasselbeck was not at all surprised about O'Donnell's return, as she stated on Wednesday's Fox & Friends, "Do you think that the woman who left the way that she did would be producing Walters' goodbye show? Here's the shocker: It was actually her hello show. I do believe this has been in the works for a very, very long time."

Rosie made two appearances on the show this year, once in February and again in May to celebrate the retirement of longtime co-host Barbara Walters. In addition to Walters' departure, Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd both announced last week that they will not be returning, so Rosie joins Whoopi Goldberg as the only other host who is coming back next season.
