It has always been a huge contradiction of a show. The public fall-outs lead to high ratings and are therefore encouraged, but on the other hand they go to great lengths to insist they all get along really.
It isn't as bad these days - since Barbara left it has been integrated into ABC News, whereas it formerly came under Entertainment.
it's interesting that Meghan in comparison hasn't had the same sort of drama.
Although Joy's patience with Meghan is wearing very thin, and the other week reference was made to arguments backstage. Also Meghan muttered "I miss Whoopi hosting" during a segment recently when Joy argued with her over an issue.
The issue with Meghan is that she takes everything to heart and can’t let it go. There was also a page six article that insinuated (based on clip) that the fighting continued off stage. Elisabeth was back a week or two ago promoting a book and said one thing was that we never really fought off stage. Meghan replied I wonder how that is.
Joy is clearly loved there since they asked her back after retiring and have her acting as moderator. Based on what I heard no one has bad issues to say about her. Based on that clip with Elisabeth - Joy knows it’s a show.
I thought Joy was fired/let go for a year? She mentioned in her 20 years of being on the show.
I do like Meghan on the show but she always seems fired up, like she's constantly on the attack. She also doesn't get into sex talk and often sits with a sour look on her face. I wonder if she gets an 'easy ride' (as noted above, which I don't think she does) because of who her father was.
If you watch every day, like I do, you will know Joy, Sunny and Meghan go out for drinks quite a lot so I wouldn't think there's any issue. It's very tabloidy of us to start assuming some of the co-hosts don't get along. It's pointed out numerous times that they can have disagreements but you move on afterwards.
