“She was out of control. She paraded up and down the halls saying, ‘I’s a work for ABC who is my master. I’s a slave to ABC. It’s 12 Years a Whoopi at ABC.’ ” They’re saying that her decision-making position for Hot Topics was snatched from her by moving the daily meetings from 9:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. which is 30 minutes earlier than Whoopi is contractually obligated to be there. According to the source, Whoopi is not. coming. early. Shade or nah?!
Tell me why this source was spilling all the tea though, y’all! They also told Daily Mail Online, “Upset at the changes that Candi has implemented in the show, and not liking the way Candi speaks to the talent, Whoopi blew up a few days ago.
She told Candi: ‘I don’t take orders from your a**. Stay in your lane like you did when you worked on The Oprah Winfrey Show.’ ”
The real shade is that despite the actress-turned-talk-show-co-host’s alleged temper tantrum, according to her aforementioned contract, Whoopi is STILL paid! In fact, she’s in the last year of her 4-year $5 million annual salary run with The View, according to Daily Mail.
Plus, the contract has a pay-or-play clause, so ABC is cutting that check whether or not she’s fired for this outburst or anything else for that matter!
But then, the source said that ABC would let Whoopi finish out her contract and just decide not to have her back after December, “and that they, ..would then shift Joy to the regular moderator post and bring back Sherri Shepherd full-time to pick up the slack.”
Shade! Do you think this might be a set-up, to jump ship roommates? The View’s ratings have been plummeting recently according to Daily Mail. Hmm… Surely this doesn’t mean it’s okay that Whoopi allegedly said those things, but she’s said that if they’re unsatisfied with her performance then they can let her go! They just haven’t let her go though.
Naturally, a spokesperson for The View denied these allegations and attempts to contact Whoopi were futile.
