Although it’s been more than ten years since Rosie O’Donnell left The Rosie O’Donnell Show, O’Donnell returns to television with The Rosie Show on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).
According to ABC News, Rosie O’Donnell is filming The Rosie Show at Harpo Studios in Chicago, where Oprah filmed the Oprah Winfrey Show for 25 years. Interestingly, many of the Oprah Winfrey Show staff have stayed on to work with The Rosie Show.
The last time audiences saw O’Donnell on daytime television was during a highly publicized confrontation with “View” co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck in 2007.
It’s a new time, however, and a different decade, and Rosie has a fan in Russell Brand who be the first guest on The Rosie Show.
The Rosie Show makes its debut on October 10 at 7 p.m. ET on OWN.
