Whoopi Goldberg has had enough of the rumors, the gossip and the cat-fighting.
With The View seemingly at the center of the television world this week - Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd are out! Rosie O'Donnell is returning! Elisabeth Hasselback is angry! - Goldberg took a few moments during yesterday's show to let her feelings be known.
In quite an entertaining and only semi-sensical manner.
"There’s a lot of speculation about a lot of stuff going on here,” Goldberg said. “I will do my best to respect the audience, to make sure that we bring you The View that Barbara Walters wanted you to have, which is women talking about issues."
She then grew a bit irate and added: "We are not little kids. We are grown-ass women... I’m not a cat. I’m a human being. I’m a girl with a fist!"
NOTE: Whoopi's rant took place before Rosie's return was made official by ABC.
Chatter continues to abound, meanwhile, over what other stars may join the panel.
Sarah Palin? Andi Dorfman? Meghan McCain? We've come up with a list of possibilties below:
