She's baaack!

Three years after leaving The View, Rosie O'Donnell is coming back to daytime television by teaming up with OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network for her own daily talk show.

"Rosie is an undeniable talent who has captivated TV audiences for nearly 20 years," Winfrey, 56, said Thursday in a statement. "She's a true original, who brings her authentic voice, dynamic energy and pure passion to everything she does."

The show, according to OWN, will be "fun" and "uplifting" with O'Donnell's "playful and energetic style."

"It's an honor and privilege to work with Oprah Winfrey on her network," says O'Donnell, 48, who will produce the show, which will premiere in 2011 and be based in New York.

O'Donnell, who had her own Emmy-winning show from 1996 to 2002, hasn't exactly been low-key since her departure from The View. Along with her blog, she's also hosted her own daily Sirius XM radio show since last fall.

In January, she debuted her HBO documentary A Family Is a Family Is a Family: A Rosie O'Donnell Celebration, which highlights different family dynamics. --Eunice Oh
