Well that was fast. Variety is reporting that just four months on ABC’s The View, co-host and Broadway star Rosie Perez is departing the show’s panel.

Perez previously announced a hiatus to appear on Broadway in Larry David’s Fish In the Dark this month, but now the actress will officially not be returning to the daytime show.

“Insiders” tell Variety that Perez had trouble reading from the teleprompter and “never got a hang of the show’s mixture of hard and soft news.”

Perez joined The View after Barbara Walters’ departure last summer, along with new co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Nicolle Wallace.
