Rosie O'Donnell Says Whoopi Goldberg Was Incredibly Mean to Her

There have been longstanding rumors of tension between "The View" co-hosts Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg but in a new tell-all book O'Donnell has revealed that her TV compatriot was "meaner than anyone has ever been" to her on the show, People reported.

The revelation was made in Ramin Setoodeh’s new book, “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View.’”

Tensions boiled over in 2009 amid a renewed debate of the rape controversy concerning Roman Polanski. At the time, Goldberg commented that the movie director had not committed "rape rape," while O'Donnell fiercely disagreed.

This led to Golberg writing a scathing letter to her co-host. O'Donnell allegedly replied "diplomatically," but residual tension remained. According to People, Goldberg would shut down all of O'Donnell's ideas for the show.

 "Whoopi Goldberg was as mean as anyone has ever been on television to me, personally — while I was sitting there," O’Donnell told Setoodeh. "Worse than Fox News. The worst experience I’ve ever had on live television was interacting with her."

This is not the first report to highlight the ongoing feud between the two. Former co-host Barbara Walters previously said it could only hurt the show to have O'Donnell and Goldberg together on screen.

"I think Rosie and Whoopi together was not peaches and cream," admitted, according to E! News.

O’Donnell's adopted daughter shared similar revelations in a 2015 interview with the Daily Mail.

"She and Whoopi really didn’t get along and she’d come home every day and talk about how she was stoned on set and she was being really mean to her," she said.
