Rosie Perez & Nicolle Wallace Leaving 'The View' Next Season?

It looks like The View may have more changes ahead.

According to Variety, ABC is planning to reboot the show again for the fall, which may include changing up the panel once more.

Whoopi Goldberg and Raven Symone will reportedly stay, but the futures of their co-hosts Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez remain to be seen.

Apparently, the network has been unimpressed by their contributions to the show, and executives have been under pressure to rescue it from a ratings decline that began with Barbara Walters‘ retirement back in May 2014.

The View has averaged about 2.48 million viewers this past season, which is 16% lower than last year. There are some names on a short list of a possible rotating panel, including stylist Stacy London and model Molly Sims.

Rosie O'Donnell Explains 'View' Departure in New Video Blog

Rosie O’Donnell has released a “heartfelt” video blog to explain her decision for leaving The View in the middle of her first year back on the program.

The 52-year-old talk show host announced last week that she would be leaving the show, but on the Monday (February 9) episode, she didn’t mention it at all.

“Everyone wanted me to talk about it. I didn’t want to talk about it,” Rosie says in the new video, citing she already gave an explanation over the weekend.

“The truth is I had a heart attack two years ago and stress is very bad for heart attack survivors. You should minimize your stress, maximize your exercise, and control your diet,” Rosie said. “So that’s what I’m doing. I’m minimizing my stress by leaving The View and the stress that I’m having at home was not as easily remediable. It’s hard. Marriage is complicated and I’ve got five kids, four of them are teenagers and there’s lots of stuff going on at home, and lots of stuff going on at work. The only thing I can really control is the work, by leaving. I can turn that volume down all the way to zero.”
