While TV may be a wonderful environment for many people, there have been some major snafus in the industry throughout the years.
Seeing a couple who had a beautiful relationship on our TV screens for many years and then never appear together again is a sad moment for viewers.
Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg, two well-known comedians, are two of those who are no longer best friends.
They became well-known for co-hosting The View, an ABC discussion show that has been running since 1997.
Rosie O’Donnell took over as host for the first time in 2006 but quit a year later after feuding with co-anchor Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
However, the 61-year-old returned in 2014, only to leave again a year later in 2015 as tensions on set continued to increase.
Now, Rosie O’Donnell has spoken about her time on the show with Goldberg and how engaging with her was not the most pleasant experience in her opinion.
Rosie O’Donnell revealed on Tuesday’s episode of Now What With Brooke Shields about her relationship with Goldberg, “We clashed in ways that I was shocked by.”
During her second time as a presenter, Bill Cosby’s sexual-assault claims were a hot topic that O’Donnell felt was vital to address on the show.
However, O’Donnell alleges that Goldberg refused to cover the subject, despite the fact that the latter did discuss the allegations on the show.
“I don’t like snap judgments because I’ve had snap judgments made on me, so I’m very very careful… save your texts, save your nasty comments… I don’t care,” Goldberg said on the show back in 2015.
Essentially, the Ghost actor was noting that people in the US justice system are innocent until proven guilty.
Despite her issues with Goldberg, O’Donnell says she has no regrets about doing The View, despite the fact that she felt she was made to seem like the “villain.”
“I feel like each thing [in show business] I learn something,” she said. “I know this — it’s not the best use of my talent to get in a show where I have to argue and defend basic principles of humanity and kindness.”
However, she then confirmed: “It was not something I’d ever do again.”
