Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg kept their “Hot Topic” discussion going even after they went to commercial break and it turned into an argument right there in from of the live audience. “As soon as they went to commercial break, Rosie took the handheld microphone that they use to engage the audience,” the show insider told the MailOnline. “Instead of talking to the crowd, Rosie spoke directly to Whoopi in the mic that she ‘hurt my feelings,’ and that she was ‘very upset by it’ and ‘didn’t appreciate’ what Whoopi had done.”
Allegedly Rosie doesn’t wear an ear piece during the segments as Whoopi does and the producers can’t speak to her during the show. It’s Whoopi’s job to wrap up the segments when she is told to in the earpiece. So that’s when Rosie decided to go after Whoopi via the earpiece. Whoopi told Rosie, “This isn’t the time for this, Rosie.” But Rosie pressed the issue, “Well I just don’t appreciate you saying that you were going to do something and not doing it. It makes me upset and I just don’t want to have to go through this.” Whoopi ended the argument by telling Rosie, “F*ck it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don’t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie, I will dammit. I’m really sick of your sh*t!”
Neither one has commented on the incident.
