Meghan McCain claimed that Joy Behar was the primary reason to drop The View.
Behar's reaction to her returning from maternity leave in January 2021 after giving birth to her daughter Liberty, made her realize the job was not worth it.
Joy Behar said on air that nobody missed you, we didnt miss you, and you shouldnt have retold him.' McCain, 37, recalls.
I started hysterically crying. Gentlemen, I understand, I started lactating on air, and I started crying.
McCain said she went back to her office and threw up before calling her brother, who persuaded her to leave the ABC talk show.
When I had my baby, I didn't feel supported, and I didn't feel supported returning, and that was all that was left, she said. That was why I left!
The conservative personality has spoken out about her poor experiences on the program since she left in July 2021, particularly when it came to Behar, 79, and Whoopi Goldberg.
Whoopi is remarkable for her ability to wield so much power in culture and television, and when she turns on you, it can create unimaginable tensions at the table, according to McCain in her audio memoir, Bad Republican.
As the years went on, I found her open disdain for me more and more difficult to manage. Occasionally, Whoopi would cut me off, sometimes harshly.
On The View, Alyssa Farah Griffin and Ana Navarro have just been announced as McCain's replacements.
