After only six months back in the hot seat, Rosie O'Donnell has decided to leave The View.
PEOPLE has confirmed that the 52-year-old host/comedian – who returned for the show's 18th season to help fill a big hole left by the retiring Barbara Walters – said through her publicist Friday that she's putting her "family and health first" after a split from her wife Michelle Rounds in November.
"This has been a very stressful situation," according to a statement from O'Donnell's publicist. "She is putting her personal health and family first. ABC has been wonderfully understanding and supportive of her personal decision to leave The View. Next week will be her last."
