Eight years after leaving her first daytime talk show, Rosie is once again going to be hosting her own show. It was announced yesterday that she has developed a talk show for Oprah's OWN network and it will begin sometime next year. Oprah said in a statement: "Rosie is an undeniable talent who has captivated TV audiences for nearly 20 years," "She's a true original, who brings her authentic voice, dynamic energy and pure passion to everything she does."
Rosie has been hosting a radio program on Sirius, guest-starred on several TV shows, and is currently filming a documentary called "The Business of Charity", but she hasn't starred on a chat-style show since her short stint on "The View". She says she's looking forward to her return: "It's an honor and a privilege to work with Oprah Winfrey on her network," says O'Donnell. "I'm excited to be back on daytime television."
Were you a fan of Rosie's original talk show? I remember watching in high school (and beyond). I can't get over long it's been - her son Parker (pictured below) was merely a toddler back then!
