Dina Eastwood is headed back to the news business.

Three weeks after she filed for divorce from Clint Eastwood citing irreconcilable differences, the 83-year-old screen legend's estranged wife returned on Monday to the anchor desk at her old TV station, KSBW in Monterey, Calif.

"Dina Ruiz Eastwood is co-anchoring the 5 p.m. news this week on KSBW Action News 8 with Dan Green ! Click 'like' to welcome her back," read a post Monday on the affiliate's Facebook page. 

Tweeted Dina: "Sooooo happy to be back with my KSBW family. Your support is UNBELIEVABLE! Thanks (Dan is even smiling!) #cheeksquad."

When asked whether the gig is permanent, KSBW's news director, Lawton Dodd, told E! News that Dina will be co-anchoring the 5 p.m. show for the next two weeks and that this is not the first time Clint's 48-year-old missus has been back in the 15 years since leaving.

"She comes back as her schedule allows," he said.  "She's been a part of the KSBW family all along. She's never really left and she will continue to come back as her schedule allows."

It's worth noting the next two weeks are duiring network sweeps, so no doubt given the drama engulfing the Eastwoods' 17-year marriage, Dina's latest stint will draw a fair amount of eyeballs.

And she could perhaps use the paycheck considering she and 83-year-old Clint have a prenup.

Before she became Mrs. Eastwood, the E! star was a TV news anchor at the station from 1991 to 1996.

Upon interviewing the actor-director in 1992, the two hit it off and began dating. They tied the knot in 1996 and had a daughter, Morgan, now 16, over whom Dina's now seeking  physical custody along with spousal support.

Eastwood, meanwhile, is hard at work filming the feature film version of the Broadway hit, Jersey Boys.
