Tempers flared in front of a live audience on the set of “The View” Thursday, an anonymous source told MailOnline.
Liberal divas Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg aired their dirty laundry in a public spat that started when O’Donnell was “cut off” by Goldberg to go to a commercial.
Goldberg, the show’s moderator, said she was instructed to do so by the producer.
O’Donnell picked up a microphone, normally used to engage the audience, and told Goldberg that she didn’t appreciate being slighted.
According to MailOnline:
Standing to the side without a microphone, Whoopi responded by saying: ‘This isn’t the time for this, Rosie.’
Instead of moving on, O’Donnell continued to gripe openly in front of the audience in the microphone about what she perceived as an on-air snub.
‘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,’ O’Donnell continued.
Goldberg, looking annoyed, shot back: ‘I said this was not the time Rosie.’
Not phased by the Oscar winner’s petition to leave matters alone until after the show, the 52-year-old comedienne continued to vent about Whoopi’s actions.
The View moderator then fired back to Rosie: ‘F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don’t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie, I will dammit. I’m really sick of your s***!’
A hush fell over the studio.
Behind the scenes things have been extra tense since the beginning of the season, sources tell MailOnline. Control freak Rosie wants her old job as moderator back.
Goldberg hates the show now, the source said, and she has begged ABC to let her out of her contract.
