Insiders from popular talk show told E! News: “There has always been a sense of family behind the scenes at The View, but it has been harder to maintain that camaraderie amongst the show’s hosts while producing the show remotely.”

The source went on of the show’s pre-pandemic dynamics: “The women typically start their mornings together in hair and make-up before passionately sharing their opinions.

“Then once the show goes off the air, the panelists all walk off set together, and there is almost always a post-show meeting—allowing the hosts to smooth over any tension that may have bubbled over during the day’s episode.”

But according to insiders since the shutdown, this all has changed divulging: “With the show now shooting remotely, the hosts are no longer having the opportunity to clear the air after the episode. They just turn their cameras off and continue their day.”

The source added Meghan and Joy “have never been friends.”

The insider noted: “They have had a cordial working relationship, but that has become much more difficult to maintain while not being in the same area.”

However, the source added viewers should not expect a cast shakeup sharing: “The show’s ratings are doing very well so showrunners aren’t exactly looking to change up the dynamic… even if emotions are running high.”

Earlier this week, Whoopi Goldberg went after Meghan on the show during an interview with the Georgia senator-elect Reverend Raphael Warnock.

When Reverend Raphael made a closing statement ending with: “so that their voice can be heard in their democracy,” Meghan replied: “Senator I understand that, I’m just asking you a direct question…”

That’s when Whoopi snapped: “HEY, LISTEN!” before thanking the Reverend for his time on the show.

She said: “We’re going to say thanks to the Senator-elect Reverend Raphael Warnock and we will be right back. Thank you for coming back sir.”

Also, this week, Meghan interrupted Joy who fired back: “Excuse me! I was speaking!”

Meghan replied: “Well, I know you were-“

But Joy pushed back: “I was talking! I’m talking about- I’m talking! Talking about traitors, traitors.”

Meghan then joked: “You missed me so much, Joy. You missed me so much when I was on maternity leave.


“You missed me so much. You missed fighting with me. Don’t act like you didn’t miss fighting with me.”

But Joy replied: “I did not. I did not miss you. Zero.”

Meghan was visibly upset and replied: “You know what, that’s so nasty. That’s like so nasty. 

“I was teasing, but that’s something rude. Like, really?”
