Whoopi Goldberg’s F-bombs weren’t the only expletives thrown around backstage at “The View” following a heated on-air exchange with Jeanine Pirro.
Sources tell us an upset Pirro called the whole “View” panel “c–ksuckers.”
We exclusively reported Goldberg yelled at Pirro,“F–k you, get the f–k out of this building!” backstage after an on-air argument over politics that ended with Goldberg telling Pirro, “Say goodbye. I’m done!”
We hear that Pirro “just sat there stunned” and “View” co-host Meghan McCain leaned over and apologized.”
But sources add that in front of the audience, Pirro “ripped off her microphone and threw it at one of the guys on the crew and said, ‘Those c–ksuckers!’” about the panel.
“It was a jaw-dropping moment,” said an insider.
Goldberg alluded to the incident on Friday’s show, saying on-air, “she called everybody at the table a name I cannot repeat on TV and said it in front of the audience.”
Pirro told us: “Watch [her Fox News show] Saturday night, ‘Justice with Judge Jeanine,’ and I’ll address what was said by Whoopi.”
Pirro on Thursday confirmed the story on Sean Hannity’s show, further claiming that, “I was leaving and [Golberg] said ‘F you’ in my face, literally spitting at me… she was screaming at me and I’m walking out of the building like a dog who was just kicked off.” Pirro added of the incident, “I’ve tried murder cases, I’ve gone against drug cartels… I have never been treated like that in my life.”
But Goldberg said on Friday, “I did not spit on her. I did not intimidate her. No one chased her out of here… but she did leave here cursing at the people who book the show. She cursed at the guys who do the security for the show.”
A source told Page Six that the tension began when Pirro arrived at the show to learn that anti-Trump CNN contributor Ana Navarro was there to fill in for Joy Behar and felt that “the segment was being hijacked.” Pirro was promoting her book “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy,” which has hit No. 1 on Amazon.
