This is not good.
Whoopi Goldberg allegedly went off, attacking ABC executives and producers on The View this week in a behind-the-scenes controversy for the ages.
According to reports, Whoopi was up in arms over the fact that a meeting for the Hot Topics segment of the show was moved outside of her contracted hours (which begin promptly at 9 am).
Apparently, Candi Carter, The View‘s new consulting producer, bore the brunt of Whoopi’s frustration over the segment!
According to DailyMail.com, Whoopi said to her:
“I don’t take orders from your a**. Stay in your lane like you did when you worked on The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
Whoopi is mad that Carter apparently moved the Hot Topics segment meeting to 8:30 am, when it had previously been at 9am, and it was now outside Whoopi’s scheduled work hours.
She allegedly went off on Carter, too! Sources say she went down the halls, yelling:
“I’s a work for ABC who is my master. I’s a slave to ABC. It’s 12 Years a Whoopi at ABC. I’s just a n****r following orders around here, master!”
Whoa. That would probably be a little too much…
At the end of the day, though, Whoopi may not care much who likes it. She reportedly has reminded people on numerous occasions that if they don’t like it, they can “pay her the rest of her money and send her home.”
She’s apparently due $5 million this year, so… that’s not such a bad severance package. But the dramz!!!
Whoopi has denied that she would have what’s being called a “meltdown” in public, but she did say:
“I guess people just can’t let me be me and do my job.”
What do U think — would you expect something like this out of Whoopi??
