Executive Producer Bill Wolff sent out a note confirming her departure:
Our friend Rosie Perez has decided to leave the show at the conclusion of this season to pursue full time her love for acting. Stepping into the role of talk show host at the same time she has been starring on Broadway has been incredibly impressive.”
He said she would get a “proper send-off” and that she’s welcome to return as a guest in the future, so it sounds like the departure is amicable.
Rosie’s rep said in a statement:
Rosie wants to thank ABC for their graciousness and their flexibility with her schedule during the Broadway run.”
Well, I can understand that. It sounds like the time commitment just got to be too much. Will you miss Rosie on ‘The View’?
