Rosie O’Donnell has trashed her former co-hosts of “The View,” blasting Whoopi Goldberg as “mean.”
O’Donnell slammed her old colleagues during an appearance on the podcast, “Now What? With Brook Shields.”
“No I don’t have any regrets in terms of career and show business like that, I feel like each thing I learned something,” O’Donnell told host Shields.
“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.
“I don’t know, It was not something that I would ever do again.
“Barbara and I got along after, we went out to dinner, we knew each other way before I did that show, before she asked me to do it, and we remained friendly toward the end.
“I forgave her because she was older and did the best that she could with what she had to work with, but it’s nothing I’d want to do again, I can say that,” O’Donnell said about Barbara Walters.
O’Donnell claimed “The View” co-host Goldberg didn’t want to talk about Bill Cosby’s rape accusations.
“I had produced my own show,” she said.
“I was the solo boss, and here I was not having any power to make decisions.
“There would be the Rory Kennedy documentary about Abu Ghraib was out about the torture that we did as a country, how we sanctioned it.
“And Bill Geddie wanted to do the new fall lipstick colors.
“And I’m like, ‘We’re not going to talk?’
“And then, you know, Bill Cosby was a big topic and I wanted to discuss Bill Cosby and Whoopi did not.”
O’Donnell said about former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck:
“One day on the show she kind of threw me under the bus and I was like, ‘Are you f—— kidding me?’
“I finished the show, got my coat, walked out, and said I’m not going back, and I didn’t, until a few years later when they asked me to come back and Whoopi was on it and we clashed in ways that I was shocked by.
“Whoopi Goldberg was as mean as anyone has ever been on television to me, personally — while I was sitting there,” she said earlier about her controversial co-host.
“The worst experience I’ve ever had on live television was interacting with her.”
