Whoopi Goldberg Responds to NeNe Leakes Slamming ‘The View’

She said what? Whoopi Goldberg doesn't care about NeNe Leakes' comments that the View ladies were rude to her when she recently joined them on the panel. The Oscar winner addressed the diss during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, December 16.

"Did you know when she left that day that she was feeling that?" host Andy Cohen asked.

"Come on! Really, NeNe?" Goldberg, 60, said in response. "You know, I don't know what … Did somebody say something that she didn't like?"

Cohen relayed Leakes' message to her. As previously reported, the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, 48, said that the View ladies — Goldberg, Raven-Symoné and Joy Behar — weren't kind when she was a guest on the show last month. She claimed she didn't meet any of them until the live broadcast and said Raven-Symoné, 30, was particularly "nasty" to her.

Goldberg, for her part, told Cohen that she never heard about Leakes' complaints until WWHL. Instead of lashing back, though, she invited Leakes to return to the ABC daytime show for round 2.

"Well, then, you know, come back another day and try again," she told Cohen Wednesday night. "I don't know what to say."
