Whoopi Goldberg accuses Jeanine Pirro of cursing out The View staffers
"A lot of pertinent stuff" was left out of Pirro's recounting of her backstage View argument, says Goldberg. On this morning's show, Goldberg said Pirro “called everybody at the table a name I cannot repeat on TV and said it in front of the audience.” After Pirro was done, she “put a finger in my face, and yelled, ‘I’ve done more for victims than you ever will,'" said Goldberg, adding that she had “some few choice words I cannot repeat” on TV. “But," Goldberg adds, "I did not spit on her, I did not intimidate her; no one chased her out of here saying ‘get out of here,'” as Pirro alleged. Goldberg said Pirro “did leave here cursing at the people who book the show, cursed at the guys who do the security for the show.”

50 Cent to The View: “I would never make fun of any sexual assault victim"
The rapper/Power producer was asked about his post mocking Terry Crews after the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star testified before a Senate committee last month describing his experience with sexual assault. "I would never make fun of any sexual assault victim," 50 Cent told The View panel this morning. "I wasn’t looking at Terry Crews that way at that point.

Meghan McCain's addition has made The View compelling thanks to her constant fighting with Joy Behar
"When McCain and Behar fight, there’s no one you agree with and no one you adamantly disagree with, because both sides are normally a little wrong," says Kayla Cobb.
