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.

Goldberg argued that the profiling was ignorance, explaining: "You need to know what real racism is. Racism is when someone comes up to you and says, 'I hope you f---king die. That's racism."

Seven years after leaving "The View," Rosie O'Donnell returned as a co-host on Monday, surprising fans with a much slimmer body (and with bare feet!)

The TV personality once tipped the scales at 237 pounds, but after having a heart attack in 2012 she knew she had to lose some weight and become healthier. However, the weight loss process has been mentally challenging.

"I'm not used to it yet. I still buy the wrong-sized clothes," she told the audience. "A lot of people who have never had weight issues their whole life would assume that losing weight and going from morbidly obese to being a...
