I figured that if any of the pecking hens left The View it would either be Whoopi Goldberg or Rosie O’Donnell and they’d leave on a stretcher after getting her throat ripped out by the other one. But Variety says that Rosie Perez has gotten her fill of that mess after only four months on the job and is completely done with The View. Hopefully, she’s leaving that shit to focus on a sequel to It Could Happen To You that solely focuses on her character.
Rosie Perez hasn’t been on The View all month because she’s been busy rehearsing the Broadway play Fish in the Dark starring Larry David. Rosie O’Donnell has been saying on The View that Rosie Perez will be out for the rest of the month and will be back next month. Sources say that isn’t going to happen. A source says that Rosie P “never got a hang of the show’s mixture of hard and soft news” and she has trouble reading the TelePrompTer. A spokeswhore from ABC News burped up a response to Deadline and they didn’t confirm or deny that Rosie Perez is out of there:
“Rosie Perez is currently in rehearsal for her Broadway play for the month of January. Her status with the show has not changed.”
There’s also a rumor from Radar that ABC is going to kill The View completely so that they can add an extra hour of Good Morning America.
I watch The View every morning, while sober (I can’t believe I just admitted that), and I don’t really remember Rosie Perez reading from a TelePrompTer. Whoopi is the one who usually reads from it and she’s absolutely shit at it. A drunk and high Siamese Cat could read that thing better. So could Stevie Wonder. If that’s a reason to get pink-slipped then Whoopi would’ve been pink-slipped a long time ago. Besides, if Rosie Perez has trouble reading the TelePrompTer it’s probably because she’s busy rolling her eyes at all the dumb shit that is said on that show.
