Whoopi Goldberg Slams Kate Gosselin Over Custody Dispute, Blowup

by at . Comments

Ever since Jon and Kate Gosselin split up, a slew of scandalous accusations have surfaced, no small amount of which portray Jonny Boy as a bit of a womanizer.

Most recently, a celebrity gossip tabloid reported he had an affair with ex-nanny Stephanie Santoro, tapping that nine times in his home while his kids dozed.

Co-hosting The View last week, Kate Gosselin said she was "not surprised" by the reports. But it was another issue that sparked criticism from her View cohorts.

Whoopi Goldberg slammed Kate, bringing up the recent custody spat in which cops came to the Gosselins' home after Kate burst in on Jon's court-allotted time.

Kate is said to have by during Jon's time with the kids after she learned about Stephanie Santoro. She did not approve of him hiring her. He called the cops.

Whoopi chastised Kate pretty hard over this.

"When you go in to a custody thing, you have your specific time, [they have] specific time and you're not supposed to walk on [that]," Goldberg said.

"And I'm sorry, that's the law."

Over interjections from co-host Sherri Shepherd and Kate Gosselin herself, Goldberg continued slamming Kate, shouting, "And you could have gone to jail!"

Whoopi Goldberg slammed Kate Gosselin repeatedly on The View.

As the others eventually grew quiet, Goldberg repeated herself, looking straight at Gosselin and saying "You could have gone to jail, you realize that?"

Kate, who filmed a new TV pilot last week, eventually responded:

"I've learned my lesson and I have learned it was not a good thing. I realized that I was wrong and it was his custody and will I do it again? No, but it doesn't answer to me, like, a babysitter I've never met or approved of. That bothers me."

Despite her counterattack, Gosselin was unable to diffuse the tension set-up by Whoopi, who continued to play devil's advocate for Kate's estranged husband.

"You don't know what [Jon Gosselin] likes and what he doesn't. His attitude could be the same on something you feel is perfectly normal," Goldberg said.

Eventually, it was up to co-host Joy Behar to break up the cat-fight.

"The beauty of this story is that he was winning the PR wars when you were on the air, they were taking about how you picked on him and you were shrewish," Behar interjected, adding in Kate's direction, "You don't look shrewish."

Maybe not as much with the new hair. But still, what a banshee.

Who sucks more?
