The departure of Barbara Walters has left ABC’s ‘The View’ without any adult supervision. And the addition of a shrill, deranged, conspiracy-spouting lesbian to the mix has… unsurprisingly… led to some serious dysfunction.
A shrill, backstage brawl at “The View” Wednesday left co-host Rosie Perez in tears while panelists Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell battled over how to cover the latest allegations against Bill Cosby and the racially charged upheaval in Ferguson, Mo., sources said.
O’Donnell believed the show — now overseen by ABC News — needed to delve deeper into both controversial subjects, while Goldberg wanted to steer clear of the topics altogether.
Ultimately, both news stories were discussed at length on the air by the panel.
“There’s terrible frustration and there are problems,” a source close to the show told the Daily News. “Whoopi didn’t want to talk about Cosby and Ferguson, Rosie (O’Donnell) did — how could you not? These are topics that are uncomfortable for everyone, but it’s ‘The View’ and it’s their job to talk about topics that might make some people tense.”
Fortunately, there were very few witnesses to the train wreck.
With Walters now retired, there’s no center of gravity to the show, no one to reign in the lunatics inside the asylum. No wonder the ratings have plummeted with the formula broken and the cast is feuding with each other.
Anti-Vaccination whackjob Jenny McCarthy now looks like the smart one for walking away from this not-so-hot mess.
Bet this wouldn’t have happened if they had picked Tammy Bruce instead of Rosie.
I also bet this kind of stuff doesn’t happen on ‘The Five.’ And this clip may explain why:
