Rosie Perez to Leave The View

rosie perezRosie Perez is leaving The View after a little less than a year as co-host on the daytime show.

Just days after a report that the show was considering dropping Perez and Nicolle Wallace, Deadline reports tonight that Perez is leaving at the end of the current season, on August 6th. Perez joined the show, along with Wallace, last September.

Executive producer Bill Wolff said in an email to staff, “Our friend Rosie Perez has decided to leave the show to pursue full time her love for acting.”

A few months ago, Perez took a brief hiatus from the show to appear on Broadway, and there was a report then she was leaving, but Rosie O’Donnell (weeks before she left the show) said she was coming back. And come back she did.

A few weeks ago, The View announced that occasional guest host Raven-Symoné would become a permanent co-host. There’s no official word yet on Nicolle Wallace’s fate at the show.
