Rosie Perez announced her departure from The View through tears during Wednesday’s show. This will mark her second time leaving the program.
The passionate co-host who joined the panel this past fall will conclude her run later this summer when this current season ends. With her departure, she intends to focus on a full-time acting career. Perez was the daytime talk shows first Latina co-host.
Rumors had circulated regarding the actress leaving the show this past January as she took a leave-of-absence to perform on Broadway. However, she did return soon after—only temporarily, apparently. Executive producer Bill Wolff claims that The View will give Perez a proper farewell before she departs. Her last day will be August 6—this season’s finale.
Are you sad to see Perez leave The View for good? It will definitely be interesting to see who steps in as the popular daytime talk shows newest co-host!
