NEW YORK, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Rosie O'Donnell has officially left The View -- again.
O'Donnell last week confirmed she was quitting the show due to the breakup of her marriage, and the fear that family and work stress could lead her to have a second heart attack.
The 52-year-old actress and comedian, who returned to the program in September after a brief stint as co-host for the chat show's 2006-07 season, did not address her second departure on the air until Thursday.
As she and her fellow panelists Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace took the stage for the start of the show, the audience chanted: "Rosie! Rosie!," to which O'Donnell quipped, "Now, you see, if that was every day, I probably would have stayed."
She later teased guest and Saturday Night Live veteran Kenan Thompson about taking her place on The View. He then asked her why she was leaving the show.
"I've got a lot of stress," O'Donnell explained. "I've got some home stuff going on. I've got some kid stuff going on. I've got to turn down the stress in some area."
Thompson then pressed her about whether she could take care of what she needs to and perhaps return and she replied, "Maybe."
"Well, everybody, I just want to say thank you to all of the cast here and the crew and mostly to [show creator] Barbara Walters, who has always looked out for me and my life and career and is an amazing woman. We had lunch yesterday and she sends her love and I want to thank her for making this show and letting me be on it twice. There you go," O'Donnell said at the end of the show. "We've had fun and I hope we're going to have more. I'll come back and do an occasional crafting segment because I have a hot-glue gun and I will travel. Thank you. It's been really fun."
Although O'Donnell's co-hosts clapped and smiled -- and Perez patted her on the back -- no one said anything about O'Donnell's departure as the credits rolled.
No replacement for O'Donnell has been announced yet.
