Rosie Perez Expected To Be Dropped From THE VIEW!

The View continues to be quite the daytime drama!  Now comes word that it looks like new co-host Rosie Perez is on her way out!

According to The Wrap:  An insider said that the ABC network has reached the conclusion that it has steered the current panel too old.   ABC now wants to look at replacements for Perez who appeal to young viewers.  Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox and Glee alum Naya Rivera are on the preliminary short list.”

Meanwhile, Rosie has been on hiatus from the morning talker while doing a new play, and it looks like she won’t be returning.   In recent weeks, a number of guest hosts have appeared to fill in for Perez … and for Whoopi Goldberg who has been off the show with a herniated disc.

Has The View become unwatchable?  Would you give Rosie Perez the boot? Do you think the talk show needs to skew younger to appeal to younger viewers with a new co-host they can relate to? Comment below!

I think the show has reached it’s end. I don’t think it is about younger hosts, democrat/republican or being combative on screen. I think it is about chemistry, having a true point of view and knowledge of what you speak. The View hasn’t had any of the above in years. I don’t find backstage fights, egos and the flavor of the week/month/year interesting. The Talk has been successful, without the drama and The Today Show with Hoda and Kathie Lee, as well, even though I feel like I am coming down from a sugar high, after watching the latter.

Rosie has to go but mostly that Nicole- she just needs to have a show of her own coz she is so fake and rude– no one can get a word in –she refuses to take a breath once she gets the floor. and not only that…SHE IS SO DAMN BORING! Hate her skinny lips and kiss ass to whoopi. Act like she is the expert on any subject-Get rid of her FIRST AND FOREMOST. I CAN NOT WATCH THIS SHOW ANYMORE!

I like Rosie P but she is so out of her element on The View. She hasn’t really improved since the first episode, stutters and stammers when trying to make a point and just really brings little to the table IMHO. Also, with Whoopi out, Rosie O has really finally hit her stride filling in as the moderator. I know they won’t take the moderator role away from Whoopi once she’s back but Rosie O does a much better job. I’d really like to see Rosie O as the moderator along with Nicolle, Laverne Cox and a rotating 4th co-host… Read more »

Hi Mo,
If you do not watch, how do you judge not liking the panel? I like to give everyone a chance….then again, it’s your right to do as you please. Later.

No interest in watching this show anymore… Whoever was in charge of the adding the Rosie, Rosie and the other new person(can’t even remember her name) did a very bad job in casting the new show.. Lets hope those people are also losing their jobs or at least on probation without a raise!! I watched the first two episodes this year.. and have not watched since.. Really….. they go rid of the table…. and all sat in chairs in the open segment??????? Producing of the show could be better also.. Lots of issues all around with this show..

ms.Perez is a GREAT actress. Look at any of her work. The View is not for her. It was at times painful to watch, uncomfortable. Really.

Ms Cox would be groundbreaking and is a natural as host. Hire her! ms. Rivera is also fabulous! She is impossibly attractive but ABC should also put a ring on that!

I really like Rosie Perez….very intelligent and honest. I have a little trouble understanding her speech, at times, but one overlooks that because of her personality. What I don’t understand is why target her?
That is not to say I would not appreciate a younger panelist ….still, why Perez?
So, if ye gods have spoken, I would love to see Naya Rivera as a permanent fixture. I am a loyal watcher of the view, which is coming on in twenty minutes, LOL….Ms Rivera is very well-spoken and seems well-centered….good luck, Rosie.

I’ve watched the new View twice since the new cast began and, I, too, had a hard time understanding Perez’ speech. Plus, she was clearly out of her element and that table is only big enough for one Rosie. The View has become unwatchable, even worse than before the new hosts joined. I watched an episode recently only due to a specific guest, and I was shocked at how little those yentas let the guest talk. The hosts went on and on with their boring opinions and barely let the guest speak.

Love that idea, but why not dump shows such as Rachel Ray or The Chew? I stopped watching The View when Sherri Shepard of the earth-is-flat-club and Jenny McCarthy of I-don’t inoculate-my-children-club dominated the format with their silliness and their relentless avoidance of real topics. It had turned into The Dumber and Dumber celebrity gossip show. Now they’re back to discussing relevant topics. I love Rosie O and Whoopi together–love that they are able to disagree on important topics and still remain civil. I also Love Nicole Wallace as she lends a cool, conservative voice of political experience and knowledge… Read more »

“…She seems so nervous ” I have always liked, Rosie Perez, personality…. and that’s neither here nor their…. perhaps… for this show I am just delighted to have her back in the airwaves… for however long this ride I do agree.. that her speech patterns are obvious… and … when they were announcing the new panel… i couldn’t believe that one of my choices for new co-host made it Whoopie, Rosie O., Rosie P., and I wanted Jennifer Tilly it’s so nice to see one of your favorite personalities… back… so it’s been sweet oye! for those of us middle… Read more »

Great response Harry! My feelings on Perez Exactly. There were times when she was getting ready to talk I would grab the mute button because I was scared of what she would say and how she would say it. She is a teletext actress, however!

I wish, Bruce. I don’t mind THE VIEW, I, too, would want both AMC and OLTL back, but I believe THE VIEW should stay put. It never interfered with the soaps. I agree with Harry. Rachel Rey (there is nothing spectacular about her cooking…well, I like her pots and pans and thingymajigs….that’s it…lol) became so famous due to Oprah, as did Dr. Phil. THE CHEW is another waste of time. Every channel has some kind of food segment or show. Why? Don’t Giada deLaurentis, Lydia what’s- her-name and so many others have enough exposure on the cooking channel and PBS?… Read more »

I knew once Rosie O’donnell came back it would be the end. She has this superiority complex like most of her peers. Her way or the highway. This show is not needed anymore, they repeat crap that’s already been said by the morning news and TMZ.

It is a talk show, Effie. That is the point. To discuss what is newsworthy. I appreciate the differences of opinion, always with an open mind. I can assure you that Rosie O does not have a superiority complex. She is a hard-working woman who has made a life for herself and her children against so many odds. And, Patrick? I am so with you on the age thing. I would rather hear wise words from someone who has earned her/his stripes, as you so appropriately wrote. Plus, how young is one supposed to be on this panel? A teen?… Read more »

I don’t know what you’re talking about. I haven’t read any comments about anyone comparing these women to characters on a soap. You see Rose one way and I see her another. I don’t need to know her personally to form an opinion on how she conducts herself on TV.

Whoopie and Rose Perez are like bestie BFF. they are both having a blast together! Nicole, makes it seem like , YES, a republican, CAN have FUN. I am enjoying her bang her up all you can….

Quite honestly none of those women represent the viewpoints of anyone. Rosie O’Donnell thinks she speaks for many but she only speaks for herself. Whoopi Goldberg is so biased it’s beyond ridiculous. Rosie Perez can not speak without a script and is unsuitable for a talk show. And that other person is so dull and out of touch that I can’t even bother to remember her name. I realize she is the “conservative” voice but she doesn’t speak for any one. The show is a waste of time and is uncomfortable to watch. Cancel it. Put all those women out… Read more »

I don’t really care one way or the other. I think ABC has messed up this show by tampering with it. The vision for the show came from Barbara Walters and not from ABC. They should have let Barbara Walters do whatever she wanted, assuming they did not.

Rosie Perez should be replaced with Perez Hilton or Chaz Bono.

Gmbenet
Guest
Gmbenet

I seriously doubt that will happen because the show is about women co-hosts expressing their views. Men were suggested in the last cast change and the answer was no! Chaz Bono could be invited, but she might not appreciate the invitation because she now considers herself a man. So that’s out too. The suggestion of having a man as co-host, a transexual as co-host is a good example of “messing up” The View. Men and transexuals should be guests not co-hosts because the premise of the show is to have women co-hosts expressing their views. If ABC wants a talk… Read more »

I really do love Nicole Wallace on The View she is funny and enjoyable and very educated. She’s exceptional. While I do love Rosie Perez, I don’t feel The View is for her, she never seemed to look and feel comfortable. I would love Laverne Cox to join the show, she is an important voice and has great strength and courage as a woman. Her story is important and she’s co-hosted many times and fits in so well. I also think, Mario Cantone finally deserves a seat at The View table. Before the new season started, I supported an all… Read more »

I like that idea, Todd. But, the show would lose its original concept….that is, all women panelists. I am not very happy with the hodge podgy, motley crue arrangement either; but, these women do deserve a chance. We may be pleasantly surprised.
To compare THE VIEW with THE TALK , as some posters have, is not fair. This concept , women’s views, women’s feeligs, women in politics etc. was borne of one ground-breaking woman—–Barbara Walters. No one will ever be able to fill her shoes; neither the women of THE VIEW, nor the apers of THE TALK.

When will ABC learn? If they want to save daytime they need to bring back Olne Life and All My Kids. It’s that simple. I wonder if thereven think about the potentially ratings and publicity bonanza they could garner by reviving these fan favorites. Talk is Boring- bring back the resal daytime drama!

I’ve never cared for The View but now you couldn’t pay me to watch. the moderator is repulsive and Rosie turned me off years ago. I also think the show has run its course, formats get old. I would love GMA in this time slow, which will probably happen next year.

Jonathan

Now that the news division controls The View’s budget, it seems more likely GMA would go to a 3d hour vs. ABCD being involved. Therefore I wouldn’t get my hopes up that daytime dramas are coming back as AMC, OLTL, or other. Half of the years this show has been on there has been internal strife. The show is done in my opinion.

There is one reason the View will never be successful and the reason why The Talk is. It is called respect for each other’s opinions and differences.

I love the View. I think they should bring Joy Behar back a few times a week and Mario Capone weekly. Lately, even though I like her, it seems as if Nicole Wallace has taken over the show. The show needs to be more balanced again, and she needs to give the others a chance to give their opinions as well.

CeeCee

I agree with you, Abruzzfan. This is why I suggest we give the newbies a chance. Nicole is finding her see legs and testing the waters. She is used to dealing mostly with men, therefore , I believe she comes out as being forceful. I am sure, she will find her niche, and calm down…LOL.

I think the show is working fine, why fix something that’s NOT BROKEN. if Rosie Perez wants to leave then let her. But to start having only young kids you will be throwing the View in the toilet… come on you went younger when Barbara Walters left so stay with your panel

Perhaps some of you have missed how informed and intelligent Rosie Perez is!!!! She is also caring and sweet.
Nicole talks too fast and needs to stop going on about being a Republican.. however she IS funny and has much to contribute.
If you don’t like the show, pls tune out. I think it is much better and more fun since the STIFF Barbara Walters left!! To Each His Own!

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

Photo: ABC

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
