Elisabeth Hasselbeck 'F*** That, I'm Not Taking That!!!' Raged at Barbara Walters

4/5/2019 10:10 AM PDT

Elisabeth Hasselbeck has a much shorter fuse than you probably thought ... but it's been revealed in this audio of a backstage tirade at Barbara Walters during a taping of "The View."

The explosive audio was recorded in 2006 after the hosts talked about the so-called morning-after pill -- Elisabeth was incensed and argued against it very passionately on the air. Barbara cut her off and told Elisabeth she needed to discuss things calmly "and not go so crazy that you don't listen to anybody's opinion." 

As they went to commercial, Elisabeth was clearly pissed. She stormed off, but was still wearing a mic and then blew up!!! She raged to Joy Behar, "F**k that! I'm not going to sit there and get reprimanded on the air!"

She went on, "What the f**k? I don't even swear. She has me swearing. This woman is driving me nuts!!"

Variety obtained the audio of the incident ... which is described in a newly released book called, "Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of 'The View.'"

Elisabeth is already apologizing, saying, "I am quite humanly reactive. I used bad words when frustrated. I was pregnant with Taylor and a big conversation about the value and the lives of the unborn took place at the View. It was a battle -but not of the flesh. I used fighting words because I believe that God decides the value of the lives of babies."

She added, "I used big battle words (one in particular that I am not proud of and am sorry for using in the heat of trying to defend the lives of the unborn)."

Sherri Shepherd Lori Loughlin Was Stupid ... All Olivia Wanted to Do Was Party

3/16/2019 7:14 AM PDT

Sherri Shepherd's hot take on the college cheating scandal is that the days of "white privilege" are over, and the parents who paid to get unqualified kids into college were just plain dumb.

We got Sherri Friday night in WeHo outside The Laugh Factory, and she went off on the difference between black and white parents. She even thinks white parents who got entangled in Operation Varsity Blues may have taken their cue from white sitcoms. She says such a storyline in black sitcoms is nonexistent.

Bottom line ... Sherri says Lori wasted her cash because Olivia wanted nothing to do with USC.

Whoopi Goldberg Talks Pneumonia Scare 'I Came Very, Very Close' to Dying

3/8/2019 8:22 AM PST
Breaking News

Whoopi Goldberg just revealed her bout with pneumonia was so severe she nearly died.

Whoopi appeared on "The View" Friday via a video update and said she'd been battling a bad case of pneumonia. She said, "Yes, I came very, very close to leaving the Earth. Good news, I didn't."

The comedian/co-host has not appeared on the panel since February 6 and, on Thursday, Whoopi reportedly skipped a benefit concert in NYC she was scheduled to co-host with Martin Short.

She said the illness was bad ... with pneumonia in both lungs. Whoopi says she's okay and moving around, and she thanked her fans for wishing her well.

Whoopi -- who has been a panelist on the daytime show since 2007 -- said she's also gotten well wishes from her critics. Get well soon, Whoopi!! 

Kid Rock On FOX News 'Screw That Joy Behar Bitch'

11/30/2018 8:32 AM PST

8:28 AM PT -- Joy and the rest of "The View" crew addressed Rock's statement on air. Behar took it with a smile and invited Rock to join "this bitch and these bitches" on the show and to have a beer together. Check it out.

Kid Rock went on FOX News on Friday to share a message with America -- love everybody ... except "that Joy Behar bitch."

The rock star was on "FOX & Friends" griping about how people are too politically correct these days ... and called for people to stop being so sensitive. 

That's when Rock -- who bragged about being all "hopped up on coffee and Baileys" -- took the shot at the liberal host of "The View."

"I would say love everybody ... except I’d say screw that Joy Behar bitch. Everybody but that!"

The crowd behind Rock roared and cheered -- while Doocy immediately tried to cut Rock off and apologize. 

"You cannot say that!" Doocy said ... to which Rock replied, "I mean 'Lady.'"

Afterward, Rock insisted he was "joking" -- and said he'd be open to sitting down with her and hashing out their differences sometime in the future. 

Rock says the main point of his rant was to bring the country together -- and remind everyone that "we're all Americans."

So far, no response from Joy Behar -- but we're guessing she ain't gonna stay quiet long on this.

Valerie Jarrett Rejects Roseanne's Talk Show Invite!!!

7/25/2018 11:04 AM PDT

That was fast. Not long after Roseanne said she wanted to have Valerie Jarrett on her new talk show, so they can hash things out, the former Obama aide happily rejected the disgraced comedian with 1 simple word -- NO!!!

We got Valerie at JFK Airport on Wednesday and straight-up asked if she'd be willing sit down with Roseanne. As you know ... Roseanne compared Valerie to an ape, prompting ABC to cancel her show. Roseanne tried apologizing and later said, "I thought the bitch was white!" Valerie's African-American.

Roseanne wants to clear things up with Valerie (in the nude, no less), but it's crystal clear Valerie wants nothing to do with her. Valerie even took a subtle swipe at the comedian ... pulling a Mariah with a "Roseanne who?" when she joined the gals on "The View."

Well played, Val.

Judge Jeanine Pirro I Got Treated 'Less Than Human' By Whoopi and 'The View' Crew

7/19/2018 6:50 PM PDT

Judge Jeanine Pirro doesn't say she regrets going on "The View" -- even though it ended in a shouting match -- but it doesn't seem like she's in a hurry to go back either.

We got the Fox News star in NYC Thursday and asked about her highly contentious appearance on the talk show earlier in the day, which got especially heated with Whoopi Goldberg.

Jeanine tells us she can handle debating people with opposing views -- even if she's outnumbered ... but says she's got a big problem with getting an invite to talk and then being treated like garbage. 

As for Whoopi, the judge doesn't have much more to say other than what was said during their showdown and, as she points out ... it probably wouldn't resolve much anyway.

Now get out of the way ... Jeanine's got places to be.

Stormy Daniels This is the Guy Who Threatened Me To Back Off Trump

4/17/2018 8:46 AM PDT
Breaking News

Stormy Daniels is now revealing a sketch artist's rendering of the mystery man who allegedly threatened her to back off Donald Trump.

The ex-porn star was on "The View" when she revealed the composite she and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, recently had done based on her memory of the 2011 incident. You'll recall she says the man approached her in 2011 and told her to "Leave Trump alone" and to "forget the story" ... or else.

Stormy told Anderson Cooper on "60 Minutes" that the threat came immediately after she'd spoken to In Touch magazine about her sex romp with Trump. She claims the man also threatened her then-infant daughter, saying ... "It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom." 

As for the sketch itself, Stormy's memory is he was between 5'9" and 6' ... and "lean but 'fit.'" He also bares a striking resemblance to Tom Brady ... at least the sketch does.

Jemele Hill I Still Think Trump's a White Supremacist

2/21/2018 11:59 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Jemele Hill says her opinion of Donald Trump has NOT changed -- she still believes he's a white supremacist ... but she probably wouldn't ever tweet that again.

The ESPN star appeared on "The View" on Wednesday and was asked about the tweet that led to her suspension back in October.

"I still stand by what I said," Hill told Meghan McCain ... adding, "I don't think his supporters are white supremacists."

However, Hill says Trump is surrounded by people with similar beliefs -- including Steve Bannon and others who have "played footsie" with white supremacists.

Hill also said if she had to do it over again, she wouldn't have tweeted -- instead she would have gone to ESPN and asked to write a column so she could have explained her position in greater detail.

We spoke with Hill after the show and she told us ESPN has given her the green light to talk about "issues that intersect with race sports culture and politics" in her new role with ESPN's website, the Undefeated.

And since she's a pop culture fanatic, we also asked Hill about comic books and the new "House Party" remake!

Barbara Walters Forgetful, Fear of Falling, Isolated

9/8/2017 7:49 AM PDT

Barbara Walters, not just a legendary broadcaster but beloved in New York social circles, has been living her life within the confines of her New York apartment, showing significant signs of age and receiving almost no visitors ... TMZ has learned.

The 87-year-old icon has become increasingly forgetful and confused ... sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ.

She almost never leaves her apartment, we're told, because she has an intense fear of falling down and breaking a hip ... something that often results in a downward spiral for older people.

Barbara does not want to receive guests. We're told she has shut herself off to almost everyone at ABC, and she only sees a few people who have been close to her.

Barbara does have a trainer who sees her weekly.

As one source says, the effects of aging are clearly present.

Whoopi Goldberg The Poop Scooper?!

12/15/2016 8:32 AM PST

Whoopi Goldberg's soaring high in the entertainment world now, but the view -- much less the smell -- wasn't always rosy.

We got Whoopi in NYC where our fearless photog asked her about the worst job she's ever had. 

Leave it to Whoopi to paint such a vividly crappy picture ... while also dropping a hint about her 'View' future.

Whoopi Goldberg Sounds Like She's Keeping Her 'View'

5/5/2016 6:32 AM PDT

Whoopi Goldberg sure sounds like she's not going to bail on "The View" when her contract is up in a few months.

We got Whoopi in SoHo Wednesday and she's definitely not definitive, but it sounds like she's satisfied with the gig.

The show needs her ... bad.

Raven-Symone Getting Ripped for... Refusing to Hire 'Black' Names

10/9/2015 10:08 AM PDT

Raven-Symone threw a giant rock from inside her glass house, and it's bouncing back in her face -- because her refusal to hire people with "black" names has some people calling for her to be fired.

"The View" co-host admitted on Thursday she discriminates when it comes to people with names like "Watermelondrea" ... and would not hire someone with such a unique name.

Of course, that comment came from a black woman named Raven-Symone ... while she was rocking a hot pink mohawk.

The irony is not lost on 'View' fans, many of whom are blasting Raven on social media and even calling for her to be replaced ... by Rachel Dolezal.

Whoopi Goldberg There Was NO 'View' Meltdown!! But Someone IS Trying to 'Do My Job'

9/29/2015 2:06 PM PDT

Whoopi Goldberg isn't denying she's pissed at someone at "The View" -- in fact, she sounds angry in this video -- but she's refusing to call it a "meltdown."

Whoopi allegedly went off recently on 'View' execs -- according to the The Daily Mail she dropped the 'n' word and called herself a slave doing the bidding of her ABC masters. The report claims it was because she'd been cut out of an editorial meeting.

Outside the ABC studio today, our photog referred to the incident as a "meltdown," and then Whoopi took him to school. But watch ... she also strongly hints someone's stepping on her toes behind the scenes.

Unclear if the 'n' word or slave comments are true (unfortunately, our guy didn't ask) -- but Whoopi's definitely heated.
