Actress Rosie Perez is leaving ABC's "The View" after just four months on the all-female daytime talk show that recently went through a major revamping, Variety reported on Wednesday.

Perez is currently spending her evenings on Broadway, performing in "Fishing in the Dark," and had taken a January hiatus from "The View," but sources told Variety that she will not be returning to the show once her Broadway run is done.

Insiders complained that even though the veteran actress was hand-picked for the talk show, she wasn't a comfortable fit in the conversations and debates with moderator Whoopi Goldberg and other co-hosts Rosie O'Donnell and Nicolle Wallace.

An ABC representative, though, told Variety this week that Perez is not leaving the show.

"Her status with the show has not changed," a representative from the show told the celebrity newspaper.

Just Tuesday, Perez responded to a fan on Twitter that she would be returning to "The View" "soon."


The New York Daily News reported there were backstage tensions between Perez and her co-hosts dating back to November when she was brought to tears after an off-stage fight between Goldberg and O'Donnell.

One source told the Daily News then that Perez was already feeling uncomfortable with her role on the show.

"(Perez is) constantly correcting herself because she's constantly screwing something up," the source told the Daily News after the Goldberg/O'Donnell fight. "She's not the sharpest tool in the shed."

The source told the Daily News that the selection of Perez from the start was a surprise to the entire staff of "The View" because of her previous lack of experience in the hot topic conversations the show handles – unlike Wallace who is a political consultant and was a former handler of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

"I understand Nicolle Wallace," the source told the Daily News. "But what has Perez done recently?"
