Rosie O’Donnell got in a heated argument with CNN’s S.E. Cupp during a recent test taping of “The View” which led Whoopi Goldberg to throw some shade Barbara Walters’ way.
TMZ reports that The View brought in S.E. Cupp to tryout for the conservative role on the show. During the test taping, she got into it with Rosie O’Donnell over a recent case in which and Australian couple has asked their surrogate to have an abortion after finding out that their unborn child has down syndrome. The debate intensified and Whoopi jumped in asking Cupp, who was against the abortion, if she had ever had to make a decision about aborting a baby.
After the taping, TMZ states that Whoopi who was stressed from the argument said that she had been, “working with a cranky 85-year-old woman who’s mad about everything for 2 years, and [she] need[ed] a break.”
Happy Whoopi or not, this may be the drama that “The Views” producers are looking for.
