Details of the feud have been revealed in Ramin Setoodeh’s new book, ‘Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View.’
Their first clash was in 2009 when O’Donnell disagreed with Goldberg’s defense of director Roman Polanski. Goldberg supposedly sent O’Donnell an “angry letter” as a result, to which O’Donnell responded diplomatically. O’Donnell’s return to ‘The View’ in 2014 was reportedly the second instance of their conflict. She claims that any contributions she offered were met with hostility by Goldberg and that the tension was apparent onscreen.
According to ‘People’, staffers on the show also added that O’Donnell would openly complain about Goldberg to guests on the show. She called Goldberg’s treatment of her “the worst experience [she’s] ever had on live television.” O’Donnell left ‘The View’ in February of 2015, citing her family and health as reasons for her departure.
