Rosie Perez makes tearful exit

Actress Rosie Perez announced her decision to quit ABC's The View today. The 50-year-old former dancer and activist broke down as she bid farewell to 2 of her co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Nicolle Wallace.

"I've decided that it's time to move on. And I will say that today is very bitter-sweet for me," Rosie said as she wiped away her tears.

"I am excited for what is to come but I am so sad to leave The View, the staff, the producers, and especially these 2 ladies," she said, pointing to Whoopi and Nicolle.

“I want to thank you for your friendship, Nicolle, and your intelligence and your wit and your sunshine. Whoopi, I want to thank you for everything: your guidance, your professionalism, most of all, your friendship.”

"You are the captain of the ship," she told Goldberg, who smiled and looked down at the floor.

Rosie and Wallace joined the lineup last fall. Former co-host Rosie O'Donnell departed soon after their arrival. O'Donnell's personal problems at home were a major distraction on the set. Not to mention O'Donnell is reportedly very difficult to work with.

  • Disturbing The Peace

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    I agree with this statement.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I like her but IDC. All the emotions after 1 year? Hell in our world it takes longer for the birthday club on the job to treat you right. She must have personal relationships with these people that span across a few years. I'm out, peace.

  • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

    The same person who does the weaves for the Kardashians, was doing his.

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

  • Femme404

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    this is my 1st day back and I didnt watch none of that chit while I was off. Okay I may have wtached Paternity Court but only because the judge hair be laid.

  • Chitsngiggles

    The problem with the View is that it needs some REAL bishes up there. You got a group of people sprinkling sugar on shyt. The Real or rather I say Tamar is smart enough not to talk about topics with substance cause she has none. They keep the topics light and conversational. The view ponders to middle aged white woman. Wendy already has that demographic on lock though.

  • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

    LMMFAO #RappersWorseThanTyga Petey Pablo .....where has he been at anyway? Hummm

  • SummerBaby

    I thought that was his hair all this time ???

  • Chitsngiggles

    Freaking Dead

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

  • Chitsngiggles

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

  • OpinionHated

    I don't watch the view but it was on the other day and I was shocked as heck when Rosie started talking and didn't have that strong Spanish accent she always has - shoot last movie I saw her in - the counselor - she still had that accent - what she lose it for the show? I love Rosie though.... she so New York.... I wish Whoopie would cut that yarn out her head - I LOATHE fake dreads....

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    Agreed she has a good team... Maybe these other heifas need to get a team and not glam squads cause they fuqn them up.

  • Femme404

    Free Mac...he's in for mur-DA.

  • Ms. YaYa

    Ummm....hmmmm.....ummmm...did Whoopi do her edges like that on purpose????

  • Chitsngiggles

    Ion know WHY they thought that was a good idea. Oh yeah to ponder to young white lesbians. Whoopie brings in the black middle age lesbians... Rosie was suppose to bring the Latinos and the other white lady for racist white housewives. None of this shyt worked though.

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    SAAAAANNNNNDDDRRRRRRAAAAA is Monyetta moving out on Neyo house on her own free will (about time) or is it some behind the scenes fuckery going on????

  • OpinionHated

    he glued Bruce's (Caitlin) left over armpit and pube hair to his head and mouth..... his lips in that pic scream I just sucked a big dack now my lips dry...

  • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

  • Chitsngiggles

    Somebody down below just called whoopie one too. Its just a word...sheesh.

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

  • KDub

  • Femme404

    Wait...so NO ONE deserves to be called a coon?

  • Sassy

  • Sassy

    Why is anyone surprised by Whoopi

  • Chitsngiggles

    I aint tightening shyt. Sherri was always riding Elizabeth's clyt. She put that bish in her wedding and everything. Trying to fit in. Look where it got her. You can't tell coons nothing though....they gotta see it for themselves

  • Femme404

    Good I'm glad you said yes. I'm a conservative and I am, in no way, shape, or form a racist or a coon for having a conservative ideology.

  • Femme404

    So what if she just genuinely liked this woman? Still a coon?

  • Chitsngiggles

    I didnt say anything. You said that. But birds of feather flock together. That's all I will say

  • MisTaken

    *walks in with my Peoples Champ Belt* ?

  • KDub

    Nah. From down below....Whoopi coons from time to time... like ole boy on Sparkle said.

    I've never forgiven her for letting her then bf Ted Danson go somewhere with her in blackface. 1990's. Proof somewhere out in these Internet streets

  • Sassy

    Member Whoopi thinks she is an exception cause she was married to yt men, had a kid with a yt man etc etc

  • Sassy

    Yup 1993

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I remember that shyt vividly...smh...

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

  • Femme404

    *sighs* You could have at least asked me why,. That's contempt prior to investigation. I'm disappointed.

  • 1/8

    I love Ms. Jones! I F-ing despise Barbara Walters! When she croaks, I'm baking cupcakes!

  • Femme404

    Damn, I had forgotten about that.

  • KDub

    My only issue with the word is don't be using it on folks we ain't got receipts fah. That is a strong word. It is a pattern of behavior. Not just cause you like some old yt races bish stolen recipes. I mean old girl yesterday was like I like Paula Deen. Heffa was deemed a coon 2 minutes later. Smdh.

  • Femme404

    Point taken.

  • Chitsngiggles

    I don't care to know why you choose to be on the side of a group of people who have oppressed black people since forever. You a black Republican. Kuddos to you. I hope that works out sis...

  • Femme404

    My exact sentiments.

  • 88

    I knew she was fired when she said Angela Basset's ''Whitney'' Movie is the reason why Bobbi Kristina was in her current state----which is true.

  • Chitsngiggles

    Touche

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    And she all the pics just a skinning and grinning as my G-Ma used to say.

  • Femme404

    You don't seem to know much about history so I'll let that slide. Ideology is personal. Whether or not I ever pull the lever for a Republican my personal ideology will remain the same till the day I die. It just happens to be a conservative one.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    They need to just put this show out of it's misery like they finally did Idol.

  • BlackGlamour

    that's not cool, she shouldn't defend those devils.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    You are aware that the Democratic party was the pro slavery party back in the day, right? The Republican Party's original platform was the abolition of slavery.

  • TheWildChild

    ?????? LMAO

  • TheWildChild

    Or bring back Ms. Jones ? ??

  • Di Ana

    Where's the funeral and who passed away?

  • http://instagram.com/prettymess612 prettymess612

    Too old for dreads? wow

  • Chitsngiggles

    Im very aware of this. Its the same group of people with the same type of thinking that enslaves us today. They just flipped the name. That's even more the reason I said what I said

  • TheWildChild

    Yes, get some Kleenex for ol' crying Kandi. ???

  • http://instagram.com/prettymess612 prettymess612

    Looks like there's tension between Rosie and rayven..

  • Di Ana

    Lol at Whoopi who said "please don't, we goin break and get our a**es together" .... That was over and beyond crying.

  • Karla Smith

    I still don't get why Rosie is leaving?

  • Femme404

    Hell yes.

  • Hair Lova ???

    ?????????? smooth

  • Hair Lova ???

    So are they gonna cancel this mess or what? Even the oldies but goodies ain't checking for the phew. The show have ru. It's course, and hosts. Once host are in and out like a revolving door, it's over.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Just cancel the show....really

  • Shira Harding-James

    Yes she did!! Ever since she got some of the white ? from Ted Danson she's been a coon ever since!!

  • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

    What kid she had with Ted. I thought all she had was the one daughter and she black. Where have I been.

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    I just cancel it. Ya'll lost creditability when you hired Waven Simon.

  • BlackGlamour

    Right!!

  • TheRealLee

    The problem with that show was Rosie and Whoopie. Everyone else has been coming and going and getting part blame for the failings of this show. They will cancel the show and develop a new morning show that does not include Whoopee. This is the only way they will fire her, just cancel the show.

  • andrice

    Whoopie does NOT have a kid with Ted Danson..fact check, please

  • Tammie Reed

    That show is a train wreck now, just cancel it already! Geesh!

  • http://www.swedishsoul.com Christina Duphorn Zehnder

  • Traci404

  • Aloysia Jones

    Why is Rosie crying like she been on The View for years tho? It was a bit extra.????

  • Angela

    HUH, What does that mean? Too old for dreads??? Whose too old for a hairstyle? WOW

  • barbeez

    I like Rosie but girl come on. You were on like ten shows. Half the time, you were away on Broadway. Why are you crying like you've been on the show for ten years? Girl puhlease.

  • http://www.mediakraze.me/ Kristi Luv

    I actually like Raven there. I wish Star would come back. or Sherri. or Joy.

  • Karen Brady

    THIS!!

  • fRAktal Reality

    What had happened? Why is she crying?

  • XoXo

    It's not like she was on the show for years. Just say bye and go.

  • CosmoBeauty

    They need to get Woopie's black lip ass off that boring show. That show went from suga to sh!t after Star Jones was fired. Rosie O was the best but Rosie P can kick rocks. Why is she crying so hard? Seems like she was fired because she brought nothing to the show. Bye Felicia! Oops, I mean Rosie!

  • JMarie504

    Her daughter Alexandria's father is white.

  • Satin Panther

    Rosie cut it out! You were only on the view for 2.5 seconds.

  • Bernadette Jackson

    Locs are just like braids; if you wear them for too long they will cause alopeca. That's why it's a good idea to switch up hairstyles. Chances are she shaved her head so that it wasn't as noticable like on Naomi Campbell.

  • Bernadette Jackson

    Thank you! It's not like she's wearing two pony tails like a child. smh But I bet the same person is rocking a hair hat.

  • Bernadette Jackson

    Rosie tried her hardest but "The View" producers can't figure out who their target audience is so they are throwing everything against a wall to see what sticks. That's why their casting is for crap. I don't agree with Whoopi all the time, but when I do I appreciate how she can express herself. I don't hate Raven but she gets on my nerves, with her sniffing her own sh*t and thinking it smells like roses.

    Rosie brought intelligence, passion, and energy to the show. Yes, sometimes it looked like she was straining in her vocal cords to speak, but by in large she was well researched when she had an opinion. I just hated that Raven would interrupt her.

    They do need to keep that comedian Michelle Collins though because you can tell that's she's down with the swirl and keeps it crispy. Chick called somebody a "basic b*tch" early this week and had me dead!

  • Bernadette Jackson

    She's gonna miss that paycheck and the exposure. Also, no one likes to be fired (don't believe the lie about her leaving of her own accord). I heard Nicole Wallace is on her way out too.

  • Bernadette Jackson

    Now you know it wasn't her decision! On the streets the rumor was that they were going to cut her before but they had no definite replacement. It was a soft firing. Other than seeing her strain in her vocal cords to speak sometimes I don't get why they'd fired her.

  • Oilers fan

    Rumor on the street is that Rosie Perez has a serious drinking problem and has been showing up late or not showing at all at The View and so that bitch got CANCELLED. She didn't quit, she was fired.

  • Disturbing The Peace

    Ohh for real
