Meghan McCain Reacts to Reports 'The View' Staff Is 'Banned' From Talking to Her

Meghan McCain left The View earlier this year after four seasons on the successful talk show. The Republican pundit has been off the show for less than two months and she already released a memoir from her time on the show. McCain claims to not having a good experience on the ABC talker and ahead of the release of her tell-all, there was a report that staff on the show was banned from talking to her. The former co-host is now weighing in on what she thinks about that alleged prohibition.

Was Meghan McCain banned from talking to ‘The View’ staff?

Before McCain released her memoir, there was a report that The View staff was being asked not to speak to the former co-host. Page Six reported that executive producer Brian Teta didn’t want any leaks about the show hitting the tabloids via McCain. When the latter made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on October 20, she was asked by a fan if she had read the article and McCain answered.

“So, I read this,” she said. “If it’s true, they’re doing a terrible job because my hair and makeup people work at The View — or one of them does now — and I use their stylists still and I still talk to a lot of the hosts including Sunny [Hostin].”

Cohen then asked if McCain expected Joy Behar or Whoopi Goldberg to contact her following the release of her book where she’s very critical of them.

“I think the stuff with Whoopi has been really blown up,” McCain explained. “I adore Whoopi and I love her, I think things went off the rails. And I was trying to give context to my experience leaving and I adore Whoopi, she’s an American icon. I have more love for her than anything else, I just wanted to explain myself and the things that happened.”
