It kicked off when The View celebrated Juneteenth during Monday’s episode with a cooking segment with author Melba Wilson.
Whoopi stepped up to help Melba cook some “home comforts” for the rest of the panelists.
Melba asked Whoopi to stir some barbecue sauce for the barbecue chicken they were making.
Ana raised a stern finger and warned: “Now put it on the chicken. Don’t put it on my face.”
Whoopi screwed up her face in confusion and asked: “Why would I put it on your face?”
Ana shot back: “Because I’m afraid you’ll miss the chicken.”
Whoopi paused, looking speechless, before retorting: “Girl… I can see!”
Ana and the other panelists laughed awkwardly at the jibe, before hastily moving on.
Keke – who previously guest-starred on the panel – received a standing ovation from the audience as she entered, and then went around the panel to hug each host.
The TV and film star chatted happily with the women around her and asked how they were doing.
Sara, overcome with emotion, quietly stated: “You’re a mama,” while wiping a tear from her eye.
Moderator Whoopi put her hand on Sara’s back and warned: “Don’t start, don’t start crying.”
Sara added: “I’m so proud of her.”
Whoopi’s live digs come amid claims that The View’s executives are tired of her so-called toxic behavior and have asked her to leave the show.
A source shared: “Whoopi seems to be picking fights all the time. She makes things very toxic.
“It’s clear she’s very unhappy. Everyone’s begging her to step aside for her sake and the sake of the show.”
An insider told Radar Online in December that executives have “grown tired of Whoopi’s constant on-air episodes and believe they are driving viewers away.”
The insider also said that Whoopi had been struggling with her physical health as a result of work stress.
They explained: “Her health has been suffering, and she always seems to be ready for a brawl. It’s at the point where the constant fighting is literally killing her.”
