NEW YORK (AP) — 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.

Walters said Monday that she has great affection for O'Donnell. She called O'Donnell a lively and engaging guest who is a part of the show's history.

This is Walters' last season on "The View."
