If you’re a diehard fan of The View on ABC you’re going to be obsessed with this new book. If you’re a casual watcher of The View…you’re going to be obsessed with this book.
If you ever wanted a behind-the-scenes look of what really takes place at The View, well, now may be your best chance yet. Award-winning journalist, Ramin Setoodeh, took an in-depth look backstage of the award-winning talkshow and got first-hand stories from some of the hosts themselves. Well, not everyone. Some hosts declined to be interviewed and others, well, others were a little more chatty than they probably should have been. And you know what? We’re here for it all!
According to previews of the book, we get to learn how Rosie O’Donnell, Star Jones, and even Whoopi allegedly tried to take over the show and Barbara Walters was trying to hold onto control. If you’ve ever watched during those years you could, at times, cut the tension with a knife it seemed. However, we still believe that since they all spend so many hours together, it only makes sense that there would be some fights at times, just like families have…and not just women being pitted against each other. Let’s hope at least!
This must-read will also tackle major show events like when Star Jones lost all that weight (and then later admitted she had some ‘help’), Whoopi and Rosie potentially not having the best relationship ever and, of course, that international feud between Rosie and Trump. Of course, we’re here for all the insider info during the time that included Rosie, Elizabeth, a fight, and split-screen. You know, the time that Rosie quit The View the very next day? We. Can’t. Wait.
So When is the Actual Release Date?
The new book is being officially released to the public on April 2, 2023. The good news is that, yes, you can pre order it right now here on Amazon. Grab it while you can!

Here are some available quotes from the book from some of the hosts:
From Lisa Ling to Debbie Matenopoulous, every person who has left that show has been fired – except for me! And it’s like the Trump administration. They will just continually lie and present a false front. They could go on TV and pretend to be friends when bad things were happening. You have to talk about it.” ~ Rosie O’Donnell
This woman is driving me nuts. I’m not going back. I can’t do the show like this.” ~ Elizabeth Hasselbeck
It feels like you’re joining a new club that doesn’t want new members. That was the hardest part.” ~ Meghan McCain
