Less than a month after ABCNews shot down a trade scoopthat Rosie Perez would be the panelist leaving The View, it has confirmed Rosie O’Donnell is exiting. She will continue to co-host the show through next week.
“Rosie is an immensely talented star who comes in each and every morning brimming with ideas, excitement and passion for the show,” ABC News said in a statement. “When she told us that she wanted to exit The View, we respected and understood her desire to put her well-being and her family first. We’re delighted she’s still part of the ABC family with upcoming guest appearances on The Fosters. And we know she’ll return to The View often with her unique point of view and updates on her work and her family.”
