Whoopi Goldberg isn’t concerned about her fellow “View” co-hosts Meghan McCain and Joy Behar’s sometimes tense relationship.
Goldberg appeared on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” on Thursday, where a fan called in to ask what the biggest misconception viewers have about 35-year-old McCain and 77-year-old Behar’s relationship. McCain and Behar sometimes clash on-camera due to their differing opinions on political topics, leading some to speculate that they may not get along off-camera as well.
“I don’t know, I don’t think about it,” Goldberg said when asked, before stressing that the two do in fact get along in real life.
“No, listen, if they didn’t like each other, they would not be on TV together, I’m just sort of saying,” she noted. “I don’t really think about their relationship. I’m actually thinking strictly about myself.”
ET spoke with both McCain and Behar last month on the set of “The View” in New York City, where the two addressed all the feud rumours.
“Of all the people backstage, we actually get along the best,” McCain shared. “Because we always want to watch news after and still talk about it.”
Behar added, “Yeah, it’s true.”
McCain also explained why it’s important for her to be a conservative voice on “The View”.
“Sometimes I’m calm, sometimes I’m not,” she said bluntly. “I mean, people that watch the show know that. I try to just remind myself that I’m representing 50 per cent of the country. I’m representing a bunch of women even though I only have one chair and it’s really important.”
Earlier this month, McCain wished Behar a happy birthday on Instagram, joking that she was her favourite “sparring partner.”
“Happy Birthday to my favourite sparring partner and true TV icon, @JoyVBehar,” McCain wrote. “You make me laugh every single day and never back down from your principles. I am lucky to know you and call you a friend! ♥️🇺🇸”
