It’s official: Rosie Perez will exit “The View” at the end of the show’s regular season next month.
As Variety reported last week, “View” producers have been eyeing yet another shakeup of the show for next season, and those plans did not include Perez remaining as a regular panelist. There’s also speculation about the future of panelist Nicolle Wallace.
“The View” exec producer Bill Wolff confirmed Perez’s exit in a memo to the ABC daytime show’s staff on Tuesday.
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.
