Rosie Perez Loses Her Seat at ‘The View’ Table: Report

rosie perez the view

*Well, we can’t say it comes as a total shock, but after only 4 months, Rosie Perez is leaving the ABC morning talk show “The View,” according to Variety.

The scenario is being played out as Perez is away from the show to appear on Broadway in “Fish in the Dark.” But it appears she won’t have a seat at the table when her stage stint is done. In the meantime, the people in charge behind the scenes are gonna give younger co-host candidates a shot at Rosie’s seat.

“The View” has experienced a dramatic tumble in ratings in its 18th season with new co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Nicolle Wallace joining moderator Whoopi Goldberg. Perez was handpicked by the show’s new executive producer Bill Wolff as a last-minute choice after the show underwent a reinvention this past summer after the retirement of Barbara Walters.

The choice of Perez was a surprise, given the other contenders that were in the mix last year. But Perez never got a hang of the show’s mixture of hard and soft news, and she had trouble reading from a TelePrompTer, insiders say.

In addition to changes in front of the camera, there will also be some staff changes as well.

  1. I knew she wasn’t going to last long and her accent made it hard to understand her sometimes. Boring Nicolle Wallace is next…her obnoxious loud laughter is so annoying.
    Whoopi Goldberg leaves a lot to be desired as well…and Rosie O.’Donnell…not feeling her either.
    Whole show needs to be canned.

  2. @ You know Who – you are absolutely correct about Nicole and Whoopi. Nicole is annoying and Whoopi is just too much with no class. Surprisingly, I don’t mind O’Donnell.

  3. As a rare “viewer” Rosie Perez was a token, and that accent isn’t/wasn’t cute ( at any age). Whoopie is showing her age and not any wisdom. Sherree was comic relief and Rosie’O? I liked her show in the beginning and then she like Whoopie, started letting their ego trump substance. Thumbs down√
