Why Is Rosie Perez Leaving 'The View'?

7/8/2015 9:16am EDT
Rosie Perez
After months of speculation, Rosie Perez is officially leaving daytime talk show "The View." Executive producer Bill Wolff announced the news in a memo to staffers on Tuesday.

He said in a statement, "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. And beyond being an enormously talented performer, Rosie is a dedicated advocate who has brought passion and insight to the panel every day."

Rosie Perez 'View' Cut Happening? ABC Planning 'The View' Reboot
Is Rosie Perez getting ousted from The View? According to Variety, it's more likely than you think. They're reporting that ABC has plans to reboot the all-women daytime talk show for the next fall season, and that at least one of the show's regular hosts might be getting the axe.

Rosie Perez is allegedly on the chopping block, and so is her co-host Nicolle Wallace. It seems ABC isn't satisfied with how the two hosts are handling the show's Hot Topics segment (as well, The Wrap claims that Wallace isn't being "conservative enough or outspoken enough" to function as the show's token Republic...

Rosie Perez had a relationship with a girl once, and she's not afraid to talk about it. According to People, Perez attended TrevorLIVE, an event for the Trevor Project- a NYC foundation that offers suicide prevention support for community, but she even opened up with a personal story of her own.

"Every human being, whether they want to admit it or not, went through a period of questioning. I know I did," Perez admitted on Monday. She went into detail about, Michelle, a girl she met in junior high and felt an instant connection with- even though she identified as straight. "All I wanted to...

Rosie Perez Isn't Leaving 'The View'

Rosie O'Donnell has shrugged off reports that her co-host Rosie Perez is permanently leaving "The View."

Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Perez was quitting the daytime talk show after just four months because she was focusing on her Broadway play "Fish in the Dark."

On Thursday, O'Donnell told the audience that Perez was just taking a hiatus.

She explained: "No matter what you read anywhere, Rosie Perez is coming back after she is done rehearsing her play. Her play... opens soon and then she will back here soon at her job regardless of what you hear on other shows or read in mag...

Is Rosie Perez Leaving 'The View'?
Rosie Perez has only been a part of "The View" for four short months, but it looks like four months was enough. Perez is leaving "The View," Variety reports.

Apparently, she was having difficulties adjusting to the show (which switches between soft daytime TV stuff and hard news- remember that whole Rosie O'Donnell Iraq War thing?).

Perez reportedly also couldn't handle reading off the teleprompter.

You can't even find Perez on "The View" right now- she's taken January, off, to star alongside Larry David in "Fish in the Dark," a Broadway play also written by David.

Barranquilla, Colombia, must have something special in its water because it produces some gorgeous women. "Modern Family" star Sofia Vergara and singer Shakira were both born in the city, which is located on the coast of the South American country.

The voluptuous actress has been criticized for her over-the-top portrayal of Gloria Pritchett on the celebrated ABC series. She defended her character, telling Fox News in 2013: "Whoever said that all Latin women are the same? It's impossible to caricature millions of women from 20 countries. There are many kinds of Latinas, just like there are ...

Welcome to day two of 2014! Looking back in time 50 years ago, the year was 1964. Major events of that year included President Johnson being re-elected by a landslide over Barry Goldwater. The investigation of John F. Kennedy's assassination by the Warren Commission concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the killing of the President. In the civil rights movement, three workers were murdered in Mississippi during the "Freedom Summer," and Anchorage, Alaska was hit by a massive earthquake.

Celebrity Fashion Fails Of 2010

2010 Celebrity Fashion Fail
The definition of fail: "The state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective and may be viewed as the opposite of success." Where there is success there is always failure, and this year there were lots of star-powered failures on the red carpet and out and about in public.

Take a look back at some serious celebrity fashion fails from 2010:

Bonnie Somerville showed up to the Trevor Live Fundraiser at the Hollywood Palladium looking like a hot mess. While revealing underwear is hot right now, it has to be done right.

Rosie Perez and Denise Rich lit the Empire State Building for Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research in New York City yesterday.

We give Rosie credit for supporting a good cause, but she gets a thumbs down for her blue velour dress and clunky boots. She reminds us of those housewives who go to the grocery store in velour sweatsuits.

Rosie stars in the upcoming film "Pete Smalls Is Dead" about two old pals who attend an old friends funeral and find there is more to his death than him being dead. She will also appear in the animated film "The Hero of Color City" about a colorful a...

Rosie Perez attended the premiere of "Howl" at the IFC Center in New York City on Thursday. She wore a one-piece denim jumpsuit, which normally doesn't scream sex appeal. But she manages to show her curves. Is she hot or not?

The star recently recovered from a bone marrow procedure and neck surgery after suffering an injury on the set of "Law & Order: SVU" last year, when she was shaken vigorously by a co-star.

She explained, "I got my neck cut... and I got my pelvis bone cracked open and they (surgeons) scraped bone marrow out and put it into into my neck."

Race Matters: Is Hollywood Truly Color Blind When It Comes To On-Screen Romance?

9/29/2008 9:49am EDT
Die Another Day
In John Grisham's bestselling novel "The Pelican Brief," investigative journalist Gray Grantham and law student Darby Shaw uncover a political conspiracy and in the process, end up between the sheets. In the 1993 film version, Darby Shaw (played by Julia Roberts) and Grantham merely share a chaste hug in the film's conclusion. What happened between page and screen? One theory: In the novel Grantham is white; in the film, he's portrayed by Academy-Award winning - and black - actor Denzel Washington.

The stigma of interracial relationships in cinema can be traced back to the 1934 Motio...

God's Vajoojoo Tastes Like Semi-Glorious 'Pineapple Express' in Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen Stoner Film

(Hollywoodchicago) – If god had a vajoojoo, Judd Apatow and company think it’d taste something like smoking “Pineapple Express”. There’s no question “Pineapple Express” is ultimately a stoner film, but is it the ultimate stoner film of our decade?

Always the most difficult proposition in a comedy is maintaining its comedic pacing with consistency.

Dale Denton (Seth Rogen, standing) and Saul Silver (James Franco, being carried) are two lazy stoners running for their lives in “Pineapple Express”.
