Who would have ever predicted the inhospitable, liberal women of The View would have a problem a conservative member of the team? There is some tension on the set and Megan is the target of it.
The Daily Mail has the story:
EXCLUSIVE: ‘They’ve nicknamed her Elsa from Frozen!’ Meghan McCain’s ‘cold and distant demeanor’ is causing tension among her co-hosts on The View after she snubbed Sunny and Sara on air but was ‘brown-nosing’ Whoopi
Meghan McCain’s new gig on ABC’s The View has bumped up ratings for the long-running talk show, but her presence has created some new behind-the-scene drama for the series, DailyMail.com can reveal.
… The show had found some peace among the talent over the last year with co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, and Jedediah Bila, until Bila was fired earlier in September to make way for Meghan.
But the addition of the former Fox News contributor, though originally welcomed by the four remaining hosts, has now created some issues for co-hosts Sunny and Sara and some of it is bleeding over on air.
Joy had issues of her own with Meghan and griped behind the scenes that she couldn’t talk without preambles and disclaimers.
‘She’s needs a talk-hosting class or something. She keeps presenting like she’s on cable news,’ Joy regularly fussed to producers.
… Meghan’s demeanor has also caused her to gain a reputation on set with producers secretly referring to her as ‘Elsa,’ the lead character from the film Frozen, as a play off the fact that everyone finds her cold and distant from her colleagues and the staff.
‘Anytime you hear someone discussing Elsa or making references to the Ice Princess you know they’re talking Meghan. Despite its challenges, The View has a family-type atmosphere and when people disrupt the harmony of that, it’s always problematic,’ the source offered.
It’s always entertaining to watch the fireworks on The View. It looks like the revolving door for the “conservative” host will keep turning.
