Proving nothing is impossible in the world of daytime television, Rosie O’Donnell is coming back to The View, at least for a day.

The show announced Monday that O’Donnell will be a guest on the daytime gabfest on Feb. 7. O’Donnell’s tenure as a panelist on the ABC show seven years ago was notably stormy. O’Donnell said after leaving that she had experienced something like post-traumatic stress disorder, and show creator Barbara Walters said she resented the way O’Donnell dumped on the show.

'Happily Divorced' books Rosie O'Donnell and Dan Aykroyd as guest stars -- EXCLUSIVE

If there’s one thing that TV Land sitcoms are known for besides their old-school laughs, it’s their genius stunt casting of television faves. EW has exclusively learned that Fran Drescher’s show Happily Divorced has just booked two TV greats — Rosie O’Donnell and Dan Akyroyd — to appear on separate episodes slated for the end of May.

O’Donnell will play Katie O’Grady, an old high school friend of Fran (Drescher) and Judi (Tichina Arnold) who arrives to help Fran learn a lesson about her relationship with her overbearing mother Dori (Rita Moreno). Meanwhile, Akyroyd plays a potential love interest — described as “charming and successful” — that Fran’s ex Peter (John Michael Higgins) sets up for her.

Happily Divorced is currently airing its second season on Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. and will wrap its current batch of episodes on June 6.

The cast of Broadway's 'Priscilla, Queen of the Desert' to perform on 'The Rosie Show' -- EXCLUSIVE

Rosie O’Donnell may have moved her new OWN show out to Chicago, but the big Broadway supporter in her hasn’t forgotten her NYC stage roots. She’s flying the entire cast of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert out to the windy city to perform a medley of “It’s Raining Men” and “I Will Survive” on The Rosie Show on Thursday, Oct. 13, during the show’s premiere week.

According to the show’s reps, Priscilla will be the first musical to appear on Rosie, a hint that there will likely be more in the future. If you remember, O’Donnell would routinely highlight stage productions on The Rosie O’Donnell Show, which ran from 1996 to 2002. I alone recall seeing bits from Cats, Aida, Chicago, Mamma Mia!, Kiss Me Kate, The Full Monty, Saturday Night Fever, Putting it Together and Thoroughly Modern Millie on Rosie’s old talk show back in the day. And what other popular talk show host would have had Billy Crudup on her couch to promote The Elephant Man? GO. ROSIE. The new series premieres on Oct. 10 on OWN and airs weekdays at 7 p.m.
