Two Months After Whoopi Goldberg’s The View Suspension, RHOBH Star Who Tried Out Opens Up About The Other Stars’ Behavior On Set

Following her controversial on-air take on the Holocaust back in February, Whoopi Goldberg was put on a two-week suspension from co-hosting duties at The View. The situation ruffled quite a few feathers, but one current Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star who tried out for the daytime talk show in 2015 has since claimed there’s even more drama behind the scenes. Two months after Goldberg’s suspension, in fact, the Bravo star opened up specifically about the seasoned TV vets’ behavior on set.

At the time this all occurred, the main co-host lineup only included the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Nicolle Wallace and Rosie Perez (after Rosie O’Donnell quit for a second time), with guest hostesses being brought in for auditions to fill out the future roster. In one episode, comedian Michelle Collins and actress Garcelle Beauvais (of eventual RHBH fame) were put through the vetting process. Collins ultimately got the gig in the 2015-16 season, but Beauvais seemingly did not like her temporary experience on The View anyway. In her new memoir, Love Me as I Amper Page Six, the 55-year-old wrote that Goldberg’s behavior was very surprising to her, saying:

I was shocked and appalled to see how testy Whoopi was with the show’s producers. I was embarrassed and disappointed, to say the least. It was cringeworthy!

Garcelle Beauvais shared that it was, overall, “an uninviting workplace.” As she tells it, none of the other co-hosts welcomed her ahead of taping for the show, and “nobody” spoke to her afterwards, either. She claims to have expected a more affable atmosphere but was instead met with “cold, unfriendly and standoffish” energy by the alums. Which is interesting because, of late, former co-host Meghan McCain had described the show as a toxic workplace herself.
