The View is facing even more changes as co-host Rosie Perez has announced she is departing the show after just one season.
“Our friend Rosie Perez has decided to leave the show at the conclusion of this season to pursue full time her love for acting,” the hit daytime talk show’s executive producer Bill Wolff said in a statement on Tuesday, July 7.

“Stepping into the role of talk show host at the same time she has been starring on Broadway has been incredibly impressive. And beyond being an enormously talented performer, Rosie is a dedicated advocate who has brought passion and insight to the panel every day. Rosie will always be a part of The View family, and we will welcome her back as a guest anytime to catch up. We’ll plan a proper send off for her in a few weeks, but in the meantime, please join me in thanking her for her great work on the show,” the statement continued.
Rosie, 50, first joined the program for its 18th season in September 2014. She was brought on as a new co-host with political analyst Nicolle Wallace, 43, to join former panelists Whoopi Goldberg, 59, and Rosie O’Donnell, 53. The Rosie Show star left the series in February 2015 and was recently replaced by Raven-Symoné.

The actress first sparked rumors that she was fired from The View in January when she left the show to attend rehearsals for a new Broadway show. She returned to the program after a month-long hiatus.
We’ll miss you, Rosie!
