The liberal hosts of the ABC talk show “The View” love nothing more than bashing President Donald Trump every day on their show. However, it now seems that the hosts have gotten bored with this and are now turning on each other.
Too Fab reported that things got awkward when current “The View” host Joy Behar appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” with former host Rosie O’Donnell. The interview was uncomfortable for Joy as Rosie talked about the “unhealthy” environment behind the scenes when she was on the ABC morning show.
“There were a lot of secrets about a lot of the staff members you were not allowed to say, it was a severely dysfunctional family, involving relationships that you were not allowed to talk about and children that were there where you couldn’t discuss where they came from,” Rosie said, as Behar awkwardly laughed next to her. “It was a crazy ass dysfunctional family. I was like, are you kidding me?! we are not allowed to acknowledge what is right in front of our face!”
“I’m not saying anything. I still work there!” Joy added. “It was hard. It was a hard year. It was hard to be there, after Star [Jones] and Meredith [Vieira] left. Everything was in turmoil. First of all, Meredith left. Barbra [Walters] was acting crazy that year too.”
They went on to talk about Meghan McCain, who has often sparred with Joy since she recently joined the show. Joy, however, claimed that they are “very friendly.”
“I like her,” she added. “I think she sticks to her guns. I correct her facts once and a while, we get into that a little bit. Her father is a hero at the moment. He is speaking truth to power and I respect that. I respect that she comes from that family.”
Things got awkward again when a caller asked Joy about Hillary Clinton’s infamous visit to the show earlier this year and if anything was “off limits” for her appearance.
“No. I know that there’s this thing going on that Jedediah lost her job because she asked Hillary a tough question,” Joy emphatically replied. “That is so the opposite … they want her to ask a tough question. They would never get rid of her for something like that and yet this thing is going around like it’s true.”
She was referring to rumors that Jedediah Bila was fired for being too tough on Clinton.
