LOS ANGELES (AP) - There’s more host upheaval ahead for ABC’s “The View,” with Rosie Perez leaving the daytime talk show.

In a memo to “View” staffers Tuesday, executive producer Bill Wolff said that Perez has decided to focus on acting.

Wolff lauded Perez for handling her “View” host duties while performing in Larry David’s Broadway play, “Fish in the Dark.”

The talk show plans a “proper send off” for Perez in a few weeks, the producer said, which is when its current season wraps.

An after-hours call to Perez’s representative in New York was not immediately returned.



Perez’s departure leaves Whoopi Goldberg and relative newcomers Raven Symone and Nicolle Wallace. The show’s tally of ex-hosts includes Rosie O’Donnell, Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd.

Series creator Barbara Walters retired as host last year.
