Just hours after The View producers announced Rosie Perez is leaving the show, has learned comedian Michelle Collins is the frontrunner to replace her.

"They love her!" an insider, who revealed plans for Perez's departure back in January, told Radar. "She's the favorite all the way, even more than Raven Symone."

Despite new reports, "There's not anything official planned yet," the source insisted, and the season will wrap up on August 6.

But if plans to bring back Joy Behar fall through, "She's the frontrunner for next season," said the source.
