Rosie ODonnell Says Working With Whoopi Goldberg On ‘The View’ Was ‘The Worst Experience’ Shes Ever Had On Live TV! – Perez Hilton

Rosie O’Donnell is getting candid about another one of her former cohosts on The View: this one,

Goldberg was apparently miffed by O’Donnell’s disagreement and supposedly sent her an “angry letter” — to which the SMILF actress claims she responded diplomatically. She said she wrote back at the time:

“I’m sorry if that hurt your feelings. I have different feelings about it than you. And I stand up for what I believe, but I’ll never bet against you, Whoopi Goldberg.”

That set the stage for when they were both brought together five years later on the morning show, where their relationship only grew more tense.

The 57-year-old alleged that, upon returning to The View, she offered up contributions to the production — like starting the morning meeting a half-hour earlier and covering the Bill Cosby rape allegations — but Goldberg apparently shut down her ideas.

The tension became so palpable, people started to notice. Rosie recalled:

“Some people would say, ‘What’s going on with you and Whoopi?’ I was like, ‘Are you watching the show? It’s pretty much right there.’ I have no desire for a public feud.”

Staffers noticed that Rosie had been more “on edge” during her second go-around, the book alleges, noting that she would even complain about the Ghost actress to celebrity guests.

And for good reason, the TV personality asserts. Rosie told Setoodeh that Whoopi was one of the meanest people she’s ever worked with — even “worse than Fox News“! She explained:

“Whoopi Goldberg was as mean as anyone has ever been on television to me, personally—while I was sitting there. Worse than Fox News. The worst experience I’ve ever had on live television was interacting with her.”

Despite their strained working relationship, Rosie insists she still respects the hell out of the EGOT winner. She added:

“She’s a minority, feminist, smart, funny, groundbreaking legend who is black in America. I’m never going to not have respect for Whoopi Goldberg. But that was a painful experience, personally and professionally.”
