Whoopi Goldberg dishes about The View tell-all book and Rosie O’Donnell’s scathing comments

Whoopi Goldberg opened up on a variety of hot topics during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday. 

The View co-host dished about Oscar-hosting rumors, Leslie Jones taking over the parody of her on Saturday Night Live from Kenan Thompson, the new View tell-all and scathing comments attributed Rosie O’Donnell.

‘I didn’t talk to the guy, I didn’t care about the book,’ Goldberg said when host Andy Cohen asked about Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story Of The View by journalist Ramin Setoodeh.

When Cohen asked her about her indifference to the book, Goldberg clarified, ‘Because what happens for me at work is not for everybody – it’s not their business.’

She added, ‘I don’t like talking out of school and I don’t like other people talking out of school. So, for me, you just have to leave it there. That’s for me, I don’t know about anybody else.’ 

Arguably the most scathing story about Goldberg in the book came from former co-hosts Jenny McCarthy and Rosie O’Donnell.

McCarthy said she felt Goldberg had ‘an addiction to controlling people’s thoughts, their words, the room, the table, your feeling, your mood.’

O’Donnell reportedly told Setoodeh that she revered Goldberg before joining The View but that all changed by the time she left the show, calling their work together ‘the worst experience I’ve ever had on television.’

She allegedly added, ‘Whoopi Goldberg was as mean as anyone has ever been on television to me… Worse than Fox.’

Goldberg seemed unfazed when Cohen told her O’Donnell has ‘some strong words’ about her in the book.

‘That’s OK,’ she casually answered back.

Goldberg was equally candid about the rumors that she was going to step in and replace Kevin Hart as Oscars host in February following the backlash over his homophobic tweets that surfaced nearly a decade after he posted them.

‘I was literally in the hospital trying not to die,’ she said with a big smile on her face.

‘So I don’t know what they were saying, but where I was, was in the hospital. But I look good now, right?’ she joked about surviving her health scare with pneumonia. 

The 63-year old comedian was also asked about her reaction to the recent SNL sketch of The View that saw Leslie Jones take over the parody of her from Kenan Thompson. 

‘Well, I love Leslie Jones. So It’s about time that a woman is actually playing me,’ she said.

Pointing to the most recent hires on the legendary show, she added, ‘It’s about time that they had enough women on the show to play the show. So you know, you can’t be mad at that. And, it was just funny.’
