It seems Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg are at it again!
This week, Rosie, 52, reportedly lashed out against her The View co-host, 59, after Whoopi scored a one-on-one interview with former supermodel Beverly Johnson — one of the many women who claimed she was sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby.
Beverly, 62 — who opened up about her alleged experience with the comedian in a piece for ‘Vanity Fair’ last week — reportedly stated she would only appear on the Dec. 15 episode of ‘The View’ if Whoopi conducted the interview alone — a notion that did not go over well with Rosie behind the scenes.

“Producers were willing to do whatever Beverly wanted to get her on the show and agreed to cut out Rosie as well as other co-hosts Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace,” a source explained. “[And] that infuriated Rosie.”
Rosie — who has been known for creating drama with Whoopi on the popular ABC talk-show — reportedly felt the producer’s move to exclude the other hosts from interviewing Beverly was a blatant “slap in the face,” the source told ‘Mail Online.’
When Rosie took her complaints about the decision to network executives, ABC allegedly agreed and told the show’s producers to tell Beverly she was required to speak with all of the co-hosts.
