THE View star Sunny Hostin has revealed how she truly feels about her co-hosts during a new interview on Good Morning America.
The 54-year-old, who became a permanent co-host on the talk show in 2016, opened up about how she and her colleagues interact once they leave the table.

Linsey asked the women to share the “secret sauce” behind The View’s success.
Ana went first, sharing: “To be on for 27 years is, in itself, epic.
“And I think it’s Barbara Walters, part of her big legacy.
“That she started this show for women, by women, with women, hearing our voices. The secret sauce? I’d tell you it’s authenticity.”
Sunny then jumped in to add her thoughts, saying: “It’s the ladies. There are five of us. We love each other.
“Despite what you may hear, we get along, even though we’re very different in many respects.
“And we leave everything at the table after the discussion. And there’s so much to talk about.”
She went on: “I mean, our Hot Topics days, where we do all Hot Topics, they’re our highest rated.
“Because people, for some reason, wanna hear what we have to say.”
Though the host mentioned there being “five ladies” on The View, there are currently six permanent hosts who take turns, with normally only five at the table at once.
Joy, who took over moderator responsibilities as Whoopi was out sick, had to cut to commercial as her colleagues duked it out.
At one point, Sunny countered one of Alyssa’s points: “Do you know why that’s a problem? Because you take money away from the public schools—”
Alyssa quickly fired back: “Didn’t you go to private school?”
Her rival admitted: “I went to private school. I had the privilege of going to private school—”
Alyssa cut back in: “But then why shouldn’t all students have that access?”
Sunny began in response but co-host Joy interrupted the fighting panelists, insisting: “We’re going to have to go. We have to go. We can continue when we come back.”
