Whoopi Goldberg let the world know on Thursday that she is done with all of the drama surrounding the upheavals on "The View."
Whoopi spoke before ABC announced that Rosie O'Donnell would be returning to the show as a co-host, but it wasn't hard to figure out who she was aiming her comments at. In the days since it was reported that O'Donnell has coming back, she has come under heavy attack from fellow ex-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. That prompted an equally harsh volley from Joy Behar, who said Hasselbeck had made "hate-filled" comments about O'Donnell. (Got all that? OK, let's move on.)
Well, Whoopi was far from happy with all of this fighting, as she made clear.
"We don't know who's coming in!" she 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. We are not little kids. We are grown-ass women."
Cue audience applause.
"Quit trying to make me into something I'm not!" Whoopi continued. "I'm not a little girl with cat claws. I'm not a cat. I'm a human being. I'm a girl with a fist!"
