Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell have it out!
does Rosie O’Donnell have a problem playing well with others?
It seems so.
Less than two weeks into their stint as co-hosts on The View, Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie had a heated fight during a commercial break.
The war of words occurred during the taping of the show last Thursday when moderator Goldberg reportedly cut O’Donnell off during the show’s Hot topics segment to go to a commercial, according to Daily Mail.
When the show went to a commercial break, Rosie, speaking into a microphone in front of the audience, told Whoopi that she had hurt her feelings, that she didn’t appreciate it and that she was ‘very upset by it.’
Whoopi, not speaking into a microphone, replied: ‘This isn’t the time for this, Rosie.’
Rosie did not let it go saying in front of a stunned audience: ‘Well I just don’t appreciate you saying that you were going to do something and not doing it. It makes me upset and I just don’t want to have to go through this.’
Rosie was clearly annoyed at this point and snapped: ‘I said this is not the time Rosie.’
Rosie continued to complain until Whoopi had had enough and lost her temper.
‘Fuck it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don’t want to listen,’ she told Rosie. ‘If you want to go there Rosie, I will dammit. I’m really sick of your shit!’
Co-host Rosie Perez broke the tension and caused the audience to roar by saying: ‘Oh shit, Twitter is going to be off the hook now.’
The show resumed taping without incident after the commercial break.
A spokesperson for The View explains: ‘They had a misunderstanding and an exchange. They talked it out and they were back to business as usual.’
Whoopi has been moderator of the show since 2007. Rosie had been moderator during a stormy one-season run in 2006-07 which included a famous on-air battle with former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
