Report: Rosie Perez to Exit The View

The View Season 18

Another year, another View host looking for a new gig.

Rosie Perez (White Men Can’t Jump), who had taken off the month of January to rehearse a Broadway play, won’t return to the daytime chatfest, our sister site Variety reports.

Perez joined The View in September as part of a reboot that added political commentator Nicolle Wallace to the show’s central table and reinstated Rosie O’Donnell as a host.

The actress’ exit reportedly is attributed to, among other things, her inability to read convincingly from a TelePrompTer.

With The View‘s ratings down since the new host panel debuted, Variety hints, more changes can be expected at the ABC talk show.

Perez will next appear in Larry David’s play Fish in the Dark.

In a statement, a View rep tells TVLine, “Rosie Perez is currently in rehearsal for her Broadway play for the month of January. Her status with the show has not changed.”
