Rosie O’Donnell will appear briefly on Friday’s edition of “The Rosie O’Donnell Show,” and is scheduled to resume her fulltime duties as host starting Monday, says a spokeswoman. Since April 4, the TV personality and new magazine publisher has been recuperating from surgery on an infected hand. On Friday, Rosie will be there to help buck up a relative newcomer to the TV game, Barbara Walters, who’s sitting in Rosie’s chair.
