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.
I’ve only watched a few episodes of “The View” since Rosie Perez joined the show and in my humble opinion Rosie always appeared uncomfortable with all of the debating and arguing between Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell.
Back in November, a show insider claimed Rosie simply couldn’t handle being on the show. “She’s constantly correcting herself because she’s constantly screwing something up. She’s not the sharpest tool in the shed,” they said.
Well, I’ve loved Rosie Perez ever since she stole my heart dancing in the opening credits of Do the Right Thing.
“The View” just doesn’t seem to be a good fit for her.
It takes nothing away from her or her talent.
