Whoopi Goldberg was on Bravo’s “Watch what Happens Live” Wednesday night when she was asked to comment on recent shade thrown at “The View” by NeNe Leakes.
If you recall, NeNe said she was treated coldly by Joy Behar and Raven-Symone during her recent appearance on the ABC daytime show.
A “Watch What Happens Live” viewer called in and asked Whoopi, “Why do you think NeNe had such a bad time on ‘The View?’ Do you think the other girls were acting like mean girls?”
“Did you hear about that?” host Andy Cohen asked.
“No,” Goldberg replied.
“Did you know when she left that day that she was feeling that?” Cohen asked.
Goldberg said she had no idea about any of this. “Come on! Really, NeNe?” she asked. “You know, I don’t know what…Did somebody say something that she didn’t like?”
After Cohen mentioned that Joy and Raven rubbed NeNe the wrong way, Whoopi rolled her eyes. “Well, then, you know, come back another day and try again,” she said matter-of-factly. “I don’t know what to say.”
As previously reported, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star discussed her Nov 17 appearance on “The View” during a visit to “WWHL” on Dec. 6.
“I didn’t see any of those ladies that’s on the panel until I actually walked on the panel. And I felt like they were not kind to me,” the reality star told the host. “I just…honestly, they weren’t kind. It’s not even ‘felt like.’”
“Was it a Joy thing?” Cohen asked. “Was it more than Joy?”
“It was more than Joy,” Leakes said. “Now, Joy was definitely throwing a lot of shade, but there was someone else on the panel that threw shade as well, as far as looking me up and down.”
Leakes later claimed that it was Raven-Symoné who looked at her “real nasty-like.”
Leakes said the co-hosts “just weren’t kind. They did not have nice manners. I know all of them are tired: their hairstyles are tired, their makeup is tired. Whatever.”
