Whoopi Goldberg's no nonsense attitude has served her well.
When The View co-host appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live Wednesday night, a viewer called in to ask about NeNe Leakes' recent comments regarding the morning talk show. "Why do you think Nene had such a bad time on The View?" the woman asked Goldberg, who sat next to fellow guest Billy Eichner. "Do you think the other girls were acting like mean girls?"
"Did you hear about that?" Andy Cohen asked.
"No," Goldberg replied.
"Did you know when she left that day that she was feeling that?" Cohen asked. Goldberg said she was unaware that there was any drama, on- or off-screen. "Come on! Really, NeNe?" she asked. "You know, I don't know what...Did somebody say something that she didn't like?" Cohen explained that she disliked Joy Behar and felt Raven-Symoné gave her "the stink eye." Goldberg rolled her eyes as he described her issues with the co-hosts. "Well, then, you know, come back another day and try again," she said matter-of-factly. "I don't know what to say." Leakes, who was performing on Broadway in Chicago Wednesday night, has yet to respond.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star appeared on The View Nov. 17, and she discussed her appearance with Cohen on Watch What Happens Live Dec. 6. "I didn't see any of those ladies that's on the panel until I actually walked on the panel. And I felt like they were not kind to me," the reality star told the host. "I just...honestly, they weren't kind. It's not even 'felt like.'"
"Was it a Joy thing?" Cohen asked. "Was it more than Joy?"
"It was more than Joy," Leakes said. "Now, Joy was definitely throwing a lot of shade, but there was someone else on the panel that threw shade as well, as far as looking me up and down." Leakes later claimed that it was Raven-Symoné who looked at her "real nasty-like." The bottom line, Leakes said, is that The View co-hosts "just weren't kind. They did not have nice manners. I know all of them are tired: their hairstyles are tired, their makeup is tired. Whatever."
