Whoopi Goldberg Shares Her Very Real Take on The View Book and Rosie O'Donnell’s Revelations

The View co-host had some blunt words about the juicy new tell-all. 

By Jenny Berg

We've heard quite a bit about the juicy new book Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of "The View," which details the behind-the-scenes action from years of The View. Among the more shocking revelations from co-hosts past and present was an admission from Rosie O'Donnell that she used to have a crush on her former colleague Elisabeth Hasselbeck — and an allegation that Hasselbeck is "a little bit gay."

O'Donnell also told the book's author that 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."

So, when Goldberg appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, a caller was naturally curious to hear how the Ghost actress felt about the tell-all, and her reaction to what O'Donnell had said about her.  

In the clip above, Goldberg said that she had not read the book. "I didn't talk to the guy; I didn't care about the book," she said. "What happens for me at work is not for everybody — it's not their business! I don't like talking out of school and I don't like other people talking out of school. So for me, you just have to leave it there." 

As for O'Donnell's comments about her, Goldberg, well, left it there. "That's OK," was her short and sweet response. Watch the clip above to hear her share her feelings on the book.

By the way, Jenny McCarthy also kept it real in her quotes for the book, telling the author that her experience on the show was "miserable." (Ask Jenny about that time Barbara Walters allegedly accused her of leaving a tampon in the backstage toilet. Yikes.)
