Rosie Perez Leaving ‘The View?!’
Rosie Perez is saying goodbye to The View.
Four months ago, Perez landed the coveted spot on the hit morning show alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell and Nicolle Wallace, but now, the talkshow is planning her departure. According to Variety, the host, who is taking a brief hiatus from the show to appear on Broadway’s Fish in the Dark, will not be returning.
According to the news outlet, producers are currently trying to figure out a replacement, possibly someone younger. Insiders tell Variety that Rosie never got a “hang of the show’s mixture of hard and soft news, and she had trouble reading from a Teleprompter.”
When the actress, most known for her roles in White Men Can’t Jump and Spike Lee’s, Do The Right Thing first joined the cast, she tweeted.
“Thank you for all the wonderful comments! I am truly touched. Excited to be a part of an amazing show and a great team of women.”
Rosie has not yet responded to reports of her leaving. HipHollywood reached out to her camp for comment, but so far no word back.
