Rosie O'Donnell Claims Whoopi Goldberg Was 'As Mean As Anyone Has Ever Been' to Her on 'The View'

In the new book “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View,” former co-host Rosie O’Donnell alleges that Whoopi Goldberg was brutally mean to her.

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

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

She did, however, say she still respects Whoopi.

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

Rosie O'Donnell Admits Crush on Former 'View' Co-Host Elisabeth Hasselbeck & Elisabeth Issues a Response

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is responding to Rosie O’Donnell‘s comments.

If you missed it, Rosie said she had a “little bit of a crush” on her former The View co-host.

“I think there were underlying lesbian undertones on both parts,” Rosie said (via Variety). “I think this is something that will hurt her if you write it. She was the MVP of a Division 1 softball team for two years that won the finals. There are not many, in my life, girls with such athletic talent on sports teams that are traditionally male that aren’t at least a little bit gay. There was a little bit of a crush. But not that I wanted to kiss her. I wanted to support, raise, elevate her, like she was the freshman star shortstop and I was the captain of the team. I was going to Scottie Pippen her. If I was Jordan, I was going to give her and the ball and let her shoot. But it was in no way sexualized.”

Elisabeth read Rosie‘s comments and responded on Tuesday morning (March 26) on Fox & Friends, saying, “I’d like to be able to say that I didn’t, but I read that. I’ll be very honest. I read it and I immediately started praying. Because I’m like, how am I going to handle this in my old self would be another split screen moment, but now I really feel like by God’s grace I just started praying — and I pray now the Holy Spirit gives me the words to articulate this — but I think it can be addressed with both truth and grace.”

“There would be an objectification of women in the workplace…So that is disturbing and it’s wrong. And whether you’re a man or whether you’re a woman, and you’re objectifying women in the workplace, it’s wrong,” she continued.

Rosie O'Donnell Was Sexually Abused By Her Father When She Was a Child

Rosie O’Donnell reveals in the upcoming book, “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View’” by Variety’s New York bureau chief Ramin Setoodeh, that she was sexually abused by her father when she was a child.

“It started very young,” Rosie said about her dad Edward Joseph. “And then when my mother died, it sort of ended in a weird way, because then he was with these five children to take care of. On the whole, it’s not something I like to talk about. Of course, it changes everyone. Any child who is put in that position, especially by someone in the family, you feel completely powerless and stuck, because the person you would tell is the person doing it.”

When Rosie was 10 she lost her mom Roseann to breast cancer. Her father died in 2015.

“Ladies Who Punch” will be released on April 2.
