Rosie Perez Leaving ‘The View’
Perez has been a cohost on The View for only four months, and is already planning to make her exit, according to Variety. The actress and comedian, who is currently taking some time off to appear in the Broadway play Fish in the Dark, may not return to the talk show come February.
ABC apparently isn’t ready to announce Perez’ impending departure, but is actively searching for a young cohost to replace her in hopes of boosting their ratings in the key demographic.
In light of the rumors about Perez leaving The View, ABC has maintained that she is still very much a part of the show. “Her status with the show has not changed,” ABC said.
Perez joined The View as a new co-host along with George W. Bush‘s former communications chief Nicolle Wallace and Rosie O’Donnell, who’d previously served as the show’s moderator. The only co-host to stay through the most recent shakeup was comedian and actress Whoopi Goldberg.
