Rosie O'Donnell Returns to The View

Would Rosie O'Donnell ever return to The View?

And if she did, what would happen?

These are examples of two questions that no one had been asking themselves. And yet the instincts of nostalgia are not to be denied: The announcement that O'Donnell would visit the ABC morning talk show Feb. 7 prompted the fingers to instantly program that appearance into the DVR calendar.

I had such an itch to see her again, you see.

Cyndi Lauper's Big Surprise as 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' Turns 30

Cyndi Lauper has plenty to celebrate – and she's not doing it alone.

Not only is the singer-songwriter Tony-nominated for her critically acclaimed score to the best-musical contender Kinky Boots, but she's also marking the 30th anniversary of the monster hit that first put her on the map, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," which she released in 1983.

To celebrate? She was totally surprised by the Kinky Boots ensemble. After quietly securing permission from Lauper's manager and her record company, Sony Music, they assembled this performance music video (see below) of Lauper's signature number.

"It's so sweet, I'm crying," Lauper, 59, during a quick break from rehearsal Monday, told PEOPLE of her reaction to what was done – and about those who participated. She first saw the video Sunday night, before it was posted to YouTube.

Not so fast.

Following last week's news that original co-host Joy Behar will be leaving The View, along with rumors that Brooke Shields will be coming aboard to replace Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Barbara Walters attempted to set the record straight on Monday's program.

Walters, who made her entrance at the top of the show on Hasselbeck's arm, looked at the camera and said she wished to address "a particularly false story." She said that reports that Hasselbeck's opposing political views, as expressed on the show, were not forcing her removal.

"We love Elisabeth," said Walters, who also said that the others appreciate her political differences, too.
