Liberal talk show The View continued their descent into chaos this week as it was revealed that host Whoopi Goldberg has been throwing temper tantrums backstage about her cohosts.
According to Daily Mail, Whoopi has been targeting conservative cohost Paula Faris, who she thinks talks about her Christian beliefs too much.
“She is no fan of Paula. Whoopi thinks Paula only really talks on the panel when she is shilling her conservative Christian beliefs,” an insider revealed. “She hates how ABC is allowing Paula to use The View to leverage network interviews with people like Kim Davis.”
“It all reminds Whoopi too much of Barbara Walters, who she despised by the time ABC made Barbara retire,” the source added.
The insider went on to reveal that Whoopi has nicknamed Paula “Sister Silence,” a clear dig at Christian nuns. Tension between Whoopi and Paula came out on air earlier this week when they discussed whether or not singer Billy Joel should be required to perform his legendary song “Piano Man” at every concert.
“So I’m saying the fan does have a voice and I should be able to express my opinion,” Paula said.
Cocky Whoopi fired back, “You have every right to voice your opinion, Paula.”

Clearly, Whoopi’s diva behavior is going way too far. It’s sickening that she’s attacking a coworker simply for being a conservative Christian…
