Rosie O'Donnell returns to 'The View' for first time since 2007: Here's what you missed

Rosie O’Donnell left The View before her contract was up in 2007 and hasn’t been back since. Today, the former host returned to the show as a guest. Sadly, Elisabeth Hasselbeck made her exit this past summer, so we missed out on a reunion between the two — and by “reunion,” we mean a fierce argument of the kind that led to O’Donnell leaving the show in the first place. Still, O’Donnell brought her sometimes-controversial opinions and tried to be more, er, agreeable than usual. “It’s my first time back, I’m afraid I’ll be exiled!” she joked.

Barbara Walters introduced O’Donnell by saying how this time of the year — near Valentine’s Day — is a perfect time for O’Donnell to return. It didn’t make much sense, but okay! The ladies all wore red in honor of National Wear Red Day, which promotes heart disease awareness, and O’Donnell was no exception: Once she made her way to the couches, she pulled her black shirt down to reveal a lacy red bra. Way to make an entrance, Rosie.

Rosie O'Donnell wants to buy Honey Boo Boo a house

The one-time Queen of Nice has a rather nice gesture for the stars of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo — she wants to buy them a house.

In a video interview with People, Rosie O’Donnell said that she loves the show, and that she’s especially obsessed with its 7-year-old star, Alanna Thompson. O’Donnell redneckognizes in her a child star from another era, Shirley Temple. “She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years … I’d love to meet them,” O’Donnell said.

She then says that she wants to buy the whole gang a house, which may not be such a bad idea — the brood is expanding. On a recent episode, “Chickadee” gave birth to a baby girl.

O’Donnell might not have to worry about buying a house for Honey Boo Boo : The controversial (to say the least) show has attracted an average of 2.3 million viewers so far and was just picked up for more episodes.

Only six more seasons to go until they keep up with overtake the Kardashians.

Rosie O'Donnell won't leave Lindsay Lohan alone, compares her to Whitney Houston -- VIDEO

Did a mad scientist send pop culture back to 2006? It feels that way, with Lindsay Lohan and Rosie O’Donnell garnering so many headlines lately. This morning, the former Queen of Nice paid another visit to the Today show, and though O’Donnell was there to serve on a “Professionals” panel, she also defended comments she made about Lohan on Tuesday.

To recap: Two days ago, O’Donnell told Matt Lauer she thinks Lohan needs “a lot of help.” More specifically, she continued, “She’s had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including SNL. I think she’s not in a place to work.”

O’Donnell says she was surprised by the way the blogosphere reacted to her comments. Even so, she’s standing by her harsh words — “We’ve all seen what’s happened [to Lohan] in the last decade,” O’Donnell told Lauer today. “Because it’s tragic.”

What’s more, O’Donnell believes the industry has an obligation to help Lohan. She explained her position by invoking another fallen star: Whitney Houston. READ FULL STORY
