Soon, there will only be one Rosie on The View. Variety is reporting that Rosie Perez, who joined the daytime talk show as a permanent co-host will not be returning to the show, as scheduled, after what was supposed to be a one-month hiatus to appear in Larry David’s Broadway debut Fish in the Dark.
Perez joined The View alongside existing moderator Whoopi Goldberg, returning co-host Rosie O’Donnell and newcomer Nicolle Wallace last fall, spending just four months on the show before this reported departure.
In December, Perez pushed back against reports of infighting amongst The View’s new hosts, calling the suggestions “insulting” and said that while male pundits have “debates,” when women get heated “it’s called a cat fight.”
“But at the end of the day we all love each other and respect each other, so, you know, it’s just insulting,” she said.
We have reached out to ABC for more information and will update this post accordingly.
Just yesterday, one of Perez’s fans asked when she would be returning to the show and she responded by saying “soon”:
