Things will be less "Rosie" over at The View. Actress Rosie Perez is leaving the ABC talk show after spending a year at the coffee table.
Executive producer Bill Wolff informed staffers about Perez's departure. Wolff stated:
Our friend Rosie Perez has decided to leave the show at the conclusion of this season to pursue full time her love for acting.
Stepping into the role of talk show host at the same time she has been starring on Broadway has been incredibly impressive. And beyond being an enormously talented performer, Rosie is a dedicated advocate who has brought passion and insight to the panel every day.
Rosie will always be a part of The View family, and we will welcome her back as a guest anytime to catch up. We’ll plan a proper send off for her in a few weeks, but in the meantime, please join me in thanking her for her great work on the show.
Rumors began swirling about Perez being out at The View when she took time off to star in A Fish In The Dark on Broadway. Nicolle Wallace's status with the talk show is also reportedly in question.
