When asked if The View addressed her creative impulses, she said simply “No.”

When asked about creative fulfillment, she said “It’s my job.”

She was then asked if being on The View is a form of acting.

“What you’re asking is ‘Is The View enough?’ It’s not. Ten years is a long time, and now I’m starting to do other stuff. I’m doing books. I’m adventuring into THC products,” she said.

“Because, in a way, I am playing a role. These are not conversations that I’m having with my friends. If they were, we’d be doing it differently. My friends and I can talk about things in depth in a different way than you can on television,” she went on to say.

Bella Thorne Responds To Whoopi Goldberg After Her Shaming Comments About Her on 'The View'

Bella Thorne just called out Whoopi Goldberg for shaming her on The View this week.

The 22-year-old actress took to her Instagram Story about the situation, following the show’s debate about Bella releasing her own nude photos on social media.

Bella actually released her own photos on her Twitter over the weekend after a hacker threatened to extort her with them.

During yesterday’s episode, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Meghan McCain got into a heated debate about the issue, and moderator Whoopi calling out Bella for taking them in the first place.

“If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are. You don’t take nude pictures of yourself,” she shared on the program. “Once you take that picture it goes into the cloud and it’s available to any hacker who wants it, and if you don’t know that in 2019 that this is an issue, I’m sorry. You don’t get to do that.”

Bella just replied to Whoopi‘s comments on her Instagram story, writing, “I have loved u for so long, but honestly, I’m so displeased and saddened by your response to my leak.”

She continued, “So, what a girl can’t send her boyfriend that she misses photos of her that are sexy? Things that he’s already seen? I, as a woman, should be so scared walking around my home, being on my phone, doing anything? Is that what u want our women to be like? Scared of the masses for their sexuality?…I don’t.”
