Someone's not gonna be happy about these views…
If you've somehow made it this far into your day without hearing about the massive feud currently erupting between Taylor Swift, Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian, we hope you enjoy living under that rock.
But for the rest of you who are aware how huge this Famous feud has already become, another handful of celebs just officially picked sides!
The View has had more cast changes and behind-the-scenes backstabbing than most primetime dramas, which means the ABC hosts are the perfect people to weigh in on Hollywood's latest scandal.
While vets Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar more-or-less chose to sit this one out, Paula Faris, Sunny Hostin, and Jedediah Bila made it pretty clear they were heavily supporting one side over the other…
Let the controversy
Rumors of a mass exodus from The View may have been premature — at least as far as Whoopi Goldberg is concerned!
The TV personality announced on Monday that it's officially official — she will be back on The View for the 2016-2017 season that's set to return this fall!!
In a tweet perfectly written to capture her role on the show, she wrote:
Turns out, The Hamptons isn't all about sea breezes and cookouts!
On Thursday's The View after show, Joy Behar brought up Bethenny Frankel's advice to not gush about your relationship to others. The Real Housewives star did so, and her marriage to baby daddy Jason Hoppy ended in a horrible divorce.
However, guest host Sunny Hostin couldn't help but bring up a personal story about her nasty run-in with the Skinnygirl creator!
A couple of summers ago, the lawyer rented a house next to the reality TV star. Things got ugly when Frankel yelled at Hostin's son for being too loud when her daughter was napping!
Sunny then told off the 45-year-old in an expletive-filled rant! While she couldn't repeat it on air, it was something to the effect of:
"I told her that adults speak to adults — and adults that want to try to intimidate kids are just bullies."
Nobody messes with Sunny's son! NO ONE!!!

We'll miss you!
The news broke after the ABC show's executive producer Candi Carter sent an email to the staffers on Friday, saying:
"I have some bittersweet news to share—Michelle Collins is leaving the show. A gracious presence on stage and off, she asked smart questions, made us laugh and will always be part of The View family. We wish her great success with some exciting new projects ahead.
Please join me in thanking Michelle for her hard work, great humor and many contributions this season to The View. She'll be in the office next week to say good-bye to you personally."
This is a somewhat surprising announcement seeing as how Michelle was only announced as a cohost about two years ago.
However, Variety had previously reported that Collins' eventual exit was actually not voluntary and
2016 is officially the year of daytime casting changes!
Well, now it looks like The View wants to get in on the fun… because we're now hearing Raven-Symoné, Candace Cameron Bure, and Michelle Collins are all leaving the show between now and the Summer hiatus!
According to a Daily Mail report out Wednesday, a source close to production claims that ABC has already selected the replacements expected to join Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and Paula Faris for Season 21, saying:
We still can't believe Ben Carson sacrificed his career for this guy…
As you may have seen, Carson stopped by the ABC talk show on Thursday to explain his insane decision to endorse the GOP front-runner, but Whoopi Goldberg, Raven-Symoné, Joy Behar, Paula Faris, and Sunny Hostin weren't about to let him off easy!
Whoopi flat out called Trump a racist — which he very clearly is — and Ben still couldn't justify his support; although Paula clearly thought he must have been promised a spot on his cabinet.
Well, never one to let things die on their own, Donald took to Twitter shortly after the episode aired to trash the "brain-dead" ladies, saying:
Tell 'em, Whoopi!
Well Carson is making the rounds as one of Donald's brainwashed cheerleaders and on Thursday he stopped by The View to try to convince the ladies that the former Celebrity Apprentice star is a great candidate.
Thankfully Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar weren't taking any of Ben's crap as the former GOP candidate did his best to avoid all questions and CONSTANTLY change the topic by saying "you're missing the point." Seriously, he basically doesn't directly answer a SINGLE question.
Ch-ch-check out the incredible interview as Whoopi and Joy ask Ben why he endorsed Donald (above) and then call out his support of the businessman despite his racist and misogynistic statements, as well as Trump attacking Carson directly (below)!
