(National Enquirer) – Rosie O’Donnell melted down and spat “I hate you!” at Whoopi Goldberg – her co-host on “The View” – and in the process likely sealed her fate on the embattled talk show, behind-the-scenes sources have dished to The National Enquirer.
“Rosie’s been gunning for Whoopi ever since she returned to ‘The View’ in September,” a show insider revealed. “Producers were hoping the fireworks between the two would lead to an explosion in ratings, but just the opposite has happened. ‘The View’ is going down the tubes.”
Ratings for the once-popular daytime talk show are down for the fourth straight season, putting the show in a dead heat with its bitter rival, “The Talk.” “Rosie and Whoopi are blaming each other for the dip, and they got into it backstage,” added the spy.
