Even Variety reported that she had been sacked, claiming that after "only four months, Rosie Perez is leaving."
However, reps for Perez and ABC insisted to PageSix that she'd return. "We look forward to welcoming the multitalented Rosie Perez back to her seat as co-host on the panel on Feb. 3 after completing rehearsals," ABC's rep shared. "She brings her rich life experience and passion to the table, something we’ve sorely missed while she’s been away."
