It seems Rosie Perez wasn’t fired from The View after all!
The 50-year-old star will be returning to the popular daytime talk show next month, according to ABC, despite rumors she would be leaving the program for good after just four months.
“We look forward to welcoming the multi-talented Rosie Perez back to her seat as co-host on the panel on Feb. 3 after completing rehearsals for her upcoming Broadway play,” the network said in a statement on Thursday, Jan. 22.

“She brings her rich life experience and passion to the table — something we’ve sorely missed while she’s away,” they added.
According to ‘Variety,’ Rosie has taken off the entire month of January to appear in Larry David’s Broadway show, ‘Fish in the Dark,’ which will open on March 5, 2015 at NYC’s Cork Theatre.
Rosie and Nicolle Wallace, 42, joined ‘The View’ in September 2014 to replace Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy for the talk show’s 18th season. Show veterans Rosie O’Donnell, 52, and Whoopi Goldberg, 59, also returned to the panel.
