NEW YORK (WLS) -- ABC's ''The View'' has confirmed that former host Rosie O'Donnell is rejoining the daytime talk show.

Rumors had swirled for days that O'Donnell would return. Her hiring follows the departures of hosts Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd.

O'Donnell appeared on "The View" from September 2006 to May 2007. She left after a feud with fellow co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck.

"The View's" new season starts in September.
