So shady! Whoopi Goldberg said that ‘The View’ is ‘calmer’ now that Meghan McCain is gone in a new interview.
Whoopi Goldberg, 66, did not hold back when talking about her former costar, Meghan McCain, 37, during a new interview with Page Six on Oct. 1. “It’s [The View] calmer because nobody wants to be that tired every day,” Whoopi told the outlet at the premiere of her new film, Till. Her sassy comment comes just over a year after Meghan announced her exit from the hit talk show after working alongside Whoopi for four years.
The daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), also went into details about her rough relationship with Joy in her book. When recalling her return to the show in Jan. 2021, following her maternity leave, Meghan wrote about the salty comment Joy made to her. “You missed me so much when I was on maternity leave. You missed fighting with me,” Meghan said to “ease the tension,” as she wrote in the excerpt. Joy clapped back: “I did not. I did not miss you. Zero.” After Joy’s comment, Meghan said that she felt she had been “slapped.”
Meghan first joined the cast of The View in Oct. 2017, and decided to quit the show after four years. On July 1, 2021, Meghan announced her departure from the show during a live episode for the show. “I am just going to rip the band aid off,” she said. “I am here to tell all of you, my wonderful co hosts and viewers at home, that this is going to be my last season here at The View.” In her book, she also called the environment at work “toxic” after she returned from her maternity leave. “As I was dealing with my own emotions, I couldn’t also navigate the idea that I was hated and felt hated at a toxic work environment,” Meghan penned. The former Fox News host revealed that during that time she was also dealing with postpartum anxiety.
