Rosie Perez Quits The View After Kelly Osbourne Controversy

(ABC/Yolanda Perez)

This is one of the most bizarre situations to happen on The View in recent years and considering the Star Jones situations and the Rosie O’Donnell hirings, that truly is saying something.

Rosie Perez is said to have quit the morning show after being FORCED to apologize to Kelly Osbourne after racist comments Osbourne made live on The View.

Perez DID tweet out an apology to Osbourne after reacting visually furious live on the air, but now it’s surfacing that producers masterminded the tweet and Perez did not forgive Osbourne for her racist comments. ABC producers are alleged to have gathered in the star’s dressing room after she refused any interaction with Osbourne when the cameras had turned off and to placate the situation (and protect Osbourne, I’m told) the producers requested Perez, 50, sent out an apologetic tweet to the rockstar’s daughter. Perez is said to have reluctantly complied with their request, but afterwards stormed off the set and slammed the producers with a verbal tirade that included the classic ‘Kiss my ass!” and campily vowing never to return. Perez has not shown up for tapings that she was scheduled to show up for, according to the Daily Mail, effectively meaning the Latina has prematurely quit the show.

Perez was already set to leave the show under the guise she’d quit to pursue her acting career (which acting career?), but Perez was fired, I’m told. She had been the first casualty of the new season several months ago, but due to Variety releasing the story before Perez (and the rest of the cast) was actually told – they sent out denials and held back on announcing the decision. Perez is considered by many behind the scenes to be the worst hiring The View has ever made, with many higher-ups furious that the linguistically challenged Perez was even hired in the first place. The View has also fired Republican Director of Communications Nicolle Wallace, who rejected a recurring role (a demotion) for next season and re-signed with MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

The View’s next season will feature Raven Symone, Michelle Collins, and Whoopi Goldberg talking around the table. Full House actress Candace Cameron-Bure and ABC’s Paula Faris are waiting to be announced.



Kelly Osbourne Drops Unbelievable Racist Remark on The View


Kelly Osbourne is the daughter of two controversial figures in show business – Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne – but she appears to be aiming for that mantle.

Osbourne, guest hosting on The View, attempted to unleash a brutal diatribe against Donald Trump’s alleged racist comments about illegal immigration, but it backfired straight into her pancake-covered face. Bizarrely attacking Trump for wanting to ‘kick every Latino out of the country’ (What?), Osbourne said on The View: “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet Donald Trump?”

The remark is greeted by stunned silence and the co-hosts of The View promptly turn on Osbourne for her comments. Watch it here.

Osbourne has since apologized for her remarks on Facebook.
