    Rosie O’Donnell Shreds Whoopi Goldberg: ‘As Mean As Anyone’

    Published on

    Numerous former co-hosts of the ABC talk show “The View” have departed the program and expressed unfavorable opinions about it.

    Rosie O’Donnell, an actress and comedian who was one of the most controversial hosts in the history of the program, is now among them. She appeared on the podcast “Now What?” by Brooke Shields. Fox News reported that in an interview with Brooke Shields, she criticized some of her former co-stars and vowed never to return to the program.

    “No, I don’t have any regrets in terms of career and show business like that, I feel like each thing I learned something,” the actress said. “I know this — it’s not the best use of my talent to get in a show where I have to argue and defend basic principles of humanity and kindness. I don’t know, It was not something that I would ever do again.”

    “Barbara (Walters) and I got along after, we went out to dinner, we knew each other way before I did that show, before she asked me to do it, and we remained friendly toward the end. I forgave her because she was older and did the best that she could with what she had to work with, but it’s nothing I’d want to do again, I can say that,” she said.

    In one instance, she discussed how co-host Whoopi Goldberg did not want to discuss the rape allegations against actor and comedian Bill Cosby prior to his arrest and conviction, whereas she did.

    “I had produced my own show. I was the solo boss, and here I was not having any power to make decisions. There would be the Rory Kennedy documentary about Abu Ghraib was out about the torture that we did as a country, how we sanctioned it. And [“The View” co-creator and former executive producer] Bill Geddie wanted to do the new fall lipstick colors. And I’m like, ‘We’re not going to talk?’ And then, you know, Bill Cosby was a big topic and I wanted to discuss Bill Cosby and Whoopi did not,” the actress said.

    She also stated that after an argument with her conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, she did not wish to return to the program.

    “One day on the show she kind of threw me under the bus and I was like, ‘Are you f—ing kidding me?’ I finished the show, got my coat, walked out, and said I’m not going back, and I didn’t, until a few years later when they asked me to come back and Whoopi was on it and we clashed in ways that I was shocked by,” the actress said.

    “Whoopi Goldberg was as mean as anyone has ever been on television to me, personally — while I was sitting there,” she said in a book about the show. “The worst experience I’ve ever had on live television was interacting with her.”

    Goldberg has been an electrical rod for controversy, including this month when she appeared enraged at having to read a note after former President Donald Trump’s indictment.

    “Yesterday, you-know-who made the trip downtown to a Manhattan courthouse to face justice,” host Whoopi Goldberg said at the start of the show.

    However, she was visibly dismayed when co-host Sunny Hostin was required to recite a legal note from the Trump team.

    “I have a legal note: Trump has pleaded not guilty and denied any criminal wrongdoing and said he never had an affair with Stormy Daniels or Karen McDougal,” she said.

    A frustrated Goldberg said, “I’m not saying a thing.”

    As for the case against Trump and the prosecutor who presented it, the outlook is not promising.

    The Republican-controlled House Judiciary Committee is “seriously weighing” issuing subpoenas for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and two prosecutors who resigned from his team after former President Donald Trump was indicted and arraigned.
