Rosie Perez departed from "The View" last month, but a recent interview revealed that she would not say no when it comes to returning to the TV show.

"I think I will be back to visit the ladies," Perez told People at the USTA Foundation Opening Night Gala for the U.S. Open. "I love them, and I love the show, it was just time."

The 50-year-old TV host describes her tenure on "The View" as bittersweet, adding that the experience was "crazy, it was fun, it was hard, it was everything. It was like life," People added.

"I really want to thank 'The View.' Thank you very, very much and the entire ABC family for such a great opportunity to be part of such an iconic show that has opened me up to a broader audience and I will be forever grateful for that, but the ones that I want to thank the most are the fans," Perez said in the program when she announced her exit on Wednesday, July 8, as quoted by Entertainment Weekly.

She continued, "It warms my heart, it really does, every time one of you guys come up to me and say, 'I love you on The View,' it just makes my day. And I really want to give a special thank-you to the Latin community. It's a huge honor to be the first Latina on 'The View.'"

Following her departure from the TV show, Perez revealed that she plans on finishing her run on Larry David's Broadway show "Fish in the Dark," NY Daily News reported. Perez will also work with ESPN as a boxing commentator for upcoming fights.

In addition, she insisted that she will continue to fight for the rights of the Hispanics -- a community she is a part of -- and promote and empower "all women of all colors," Entertainment Weekly added.

Rosie Perez Campaign for Arts Education

Perez teamed up with Urban Arts Partnership to provide arts education to underserved students in 100 schools across New York City and Los Angeles, as stated in a separate report from People.

The campaign aims to develop arts by teaching history, current events, and those who speak English as a second language, People noted. According to Perez, plenty of students need a support system to express themselves and help them face their daily struggles.

"We tell them we care," she explained, as quoted by the news outlet. "We tell them, 'We see that you're capable, we see that you're able, we see that you're intelligent. Let's help each other and make this world a better place.'"
