Kelly Osbourne's controversial Latino comment on 'The View' did not send co-host Rosie Perez away! Her exit from the show was already planned.
Despite reports that Kelly Osbourne's offensive remark led to co-host, Rosie Perez quitting 'The View', latest reports say no host is leaving the show. According to Gossip Cop, the report is “laughably false.''
We previously reported that Osbourne , 31, set off a firestorm a week ago when, commenting on Donald Trump’s recent remarks about illegal Mexican immigrants, she said, ''If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet Donald Trump?”
According to popular blogger Perez Hilton, Rosie was ''forced to be nice to Kelly by the show’s execs” and made to tweet an apology to Osbourne after the show that read, ''I took your point wrong-#Trump #Latinos. My bad. You’re heart is so pure & righteous. I adore you.'' The blogger claims ''the dispute eventually sparked a screaming match with the producers, and Rosie ended up quitting the remainder of Season 18!''
While Rosie was fully right to be upset by the comment, she was not “forced” to apologize to Osbourne and most certainly did NOT quit over it. A sources claims right after the taping, Rosie went to Osbourne’s dressing room and comforted the young reality star for her dreadfully wrong remark.
Perez however announced her exit from “The View” on July 7, and tearfully spoke about her exit on the July 8. episode which was way before the controversy with Osbourne on August 8. Her exit was planned long before Osbourne came along.
