She may have been enlisted to bring a breath of fresh air to the show, but it would seem all isn’t as it should be with Rosie Perez and ‘The View’, now reportedly set to part ways.
A surprising report below…
After only four months on “The View,” Rosie Perez is leaving the ABC morning show, Variety has learned.
Perez had taken off the month of January to appear in the Broadway play “Fish in the Dark,” but it’s understood that she won’t be coming back to the Hot Topics table once she’s done. It’s unclear when ABC will announce her departure, but for now “View” producers have been trying other younger co-hosts in her seat.
A rep for “View” denied that Perez would be leaving the show. “Her status with the show has not changed,” ABC said.
The choice of Perez was a surprise given the other contenders that were in the mix last year. But Perez never got a hang of the show’s mixture of hard and soft news, and she had trouble reading from a TelePrompTer, insiders say.
