After losing all their hosts except Whoopi Goldberg, there have been recent talks that ABC would like to bring Rosie O’Donnell back to The View according to sources. Rosie O’Donnell’s departure from the show in 2007 after its first season was due to a disagreement over the contract. Apparently, O’Donnell only wanted to a one year agreement while ABC asked for a three year commitment. This announcement comes after the show’s founder Barbara Walters retired from television just last month. Sherri Shepard, who was also a host for 7 years would not be returning and Jenny McCarthy’s contract was not renewed.
According TMZ, one major stipulation for O’Donnell’s return to the show: None of her future co-hosts can be reality stars.
