Forget those rumors about commercial break shouting matches and backstage drama at ‘The View.’ The show’s moderator Whoopi Goldberg claims the cohosts all get along just fine.
“[They’re] just a bunch of smart women and I like them,” the comedian told David Letterman on Thursday. “People keep saying ‘I’m hearing everything… you’re killing each other over there.’ It’s like OK. You get four chicks and people expect you to fight… Women don’t just do that. But nobody ever asks those questions of the guys. You’ll get guys on ESPN and maybe they’re sniping at each other but nobody says ‘Oh, the dudes are fighting’…We’re grown ups. We’re hip grown ups. And we’re good looking women. The fighting stuff…that’s what kids do. We don’t do that. It’s too tiring.”
Watch the clip above and tell us in the comments if you believe Whoopi, Rosie Perez, Rosie O’Donnell and Nicole Wallace really do get along behind the scenes. ‘The View’ airs weekdays on ABC.
