The View is one show that somehow always manages to find itself in some or the other kind of controversy, especially involving one of its most influential and popular co-hosts, Whoopi Goldberg. The latest drama that unfolded was the Sister Act star being told off by her fellow panelist, Joy Behar.
What somehow escalated the matter is the absence of both panelists in the latest episode of the ABC talk show. Fans can’t help but wonder what’s happening.
A subtle battle of words in The View panel
During a recent episode of the talk show, several panelists were having a discussion about their finances and spending habits and one particular co-host seemed utterly disinterested. It was Whoopi Goldberg. In one of the segments of the show, Sunny Hostin jokingly shared how tiring it was to pay for certain stuff like streaming services and ballet lessons for her kids. Sara Haines added to the jest by sharing how she and her husband have a joint account but they also have their own private accounts.
During this conversation about finances, The Color Purple star could be seen resting her head in her hands, with apparent boredom, thus making the audience laugh. Hostin went on to ask Goldberg, “Right, Whoopi?” It is then that Behar almost snapped. She said with apparent anger, “Whoopi checked out an hour ago.”
What further hints at bigger trouble is the fact that both Goldberg and Behar were absent from Monday’s episode of The View.
Although Joy Behar is often absent on the Monday episodes, Goldberg rarely is. That raised quite a few eyebrows. As both of them were missing from the latest broadcast, the hosting panel consisted of Alyssa Farah Griffin, Sara Haines, Ana Navarro, and Sunny Hostin. Haines was chosen as the moderator of the day which was again a shock for the viewers who expected Hostin to host.
