After the heated exchange between Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain it went viral, the hosts of the show couldn’t ignore the drama. On the next day’s show, Goldberg focused on the verbal feud.
“Things get heated up in this show,” Whoopi Goldberg explained. “If you watch this show, you know it’s happened over the years. We’re really passionate. This is our job. We come in, we talk to each other, sometimes we’re not as polite as we could be. That’s just the way it is.”
The Sister Act star made sure to note that just because things got out of hand didn’t mean there was animosity between them.
“This is not an indication that women can’t sit and talk,” the moderator of the show continued. “This is not an indication that we don’t know how to deal with each other in front of the camera. Things are happening in this show in real time, and wherever you’re sitting in all this, don’t assume we’re sitting here with little butcher knives under the table. This is our show and sometimes it goes off the rails and it does. Everybody just calm down. It’s a TV show.
