Yesterday we reported on ABC’s The View rushing to a commercial break after Meghan McCain and Joy Behar got into a shouting match.
In short, Behar turned their segment for Bush Sr.’s death into an anti-Trump segment and McCain didn’t like it and called her out on it.
Well apparently Behar was so upset that when they went to commercial she threatened to quit the show if they didn’t get “this b***h under control”:
DAILY MAIL – Behar was then seen slamming her cue cards on the table and turning to sound off on McCain just as producers cut to break. Producers muted Behar’s microphone so that her expletives would not be heard on air.
But the source told DailyMail.com that Behar threw her hands in the air, yelled ‘My God!’ and ‘Get this b***h under control.’
‘If this s**t doesn’t stop I’m quitting this damn show. I can’t take this much more,’ Behar allegedly fumed.
Producers ran to the stage in an attempt to deescalate the situation, but Behar continued to rant, the source said.
‘I’ve tolerated a lot of s**t on this show but I’m at my wits’ end with this entitled b***h. Enough already! Enough already! I’m not playing nice any longer,’ Behar shouted, despite the studio audience being able to hear it all.
‘I don’t know why she’s so upset,’ McCain reportedly said. ‘I just wanted her to focus on President Bush and not bring Trump into this for once.’
While hair and makeup people attempted to groom both of the hosts, producers tried to calm Behar down before returning from the commercial break.
‘Everyone was frantic. The last thing they wanted was for Joy to walk off the show. She’s done that before. Remember the Bill O’Reilly situation? She appeared just as disgusted as she did that day and they only had two minutes to contain this explosion on set and get everyone positioned to return for the next live segment. It was utter chaos on set,’ the source said.
Following the live Monday show, neither woman spoke to each other and producers and network executives met with them individually in their dressing rooms.
‘This isn’t the last you’ve seen of these two coming to blows. You can trust and believe that,’ the source said.
While the liberal ABC isn’t crazy about Meghan McCain’s behavior, they realize it’s good for ratings so they are ignoring it:
This is not McCain’s first spat with Behar and as previously reported by DailyMail.com on multiple occasions, McCain has feuded with her other co-hosts Sunny Hostin, new Friday co-host Ana Navarro and former co-host Sara Haines.
She previously had a tense on-camera blow-up with Whoopi Goldberg as well. She’s also had major drama with several high-ranking producers and ABC executives, according to insiders.
‘As toxic as she may be and all the hell she raises behind the scenes, the truth is The View’s ratings are up and ABC is turning a blind eye to Meghan’s awful behavior because of it. And unless the ratings drop or Meghan actually quits, she’s not going anywhere anytime soon,’ the source concluded.
I love that McCain is giving them hell on the show. These liberal cluckers need to be challenged and it looks like Meghan McCain isn’t afraid to do it.
