The View
Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell got in to a heated debate during Thursday's episode of "The View" while discussing racism.

Guest star Laverne Cox from "Orange is the New Black" talked with the co-hosts, including Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace, about how African-Americans are profiled in stores.

Goldberg argued that the profiling was ignorance, explaining: "You need to know what real racism is. Racism is when someone comes up to you and says, 'I hope you f---king die. That's racism."

She added, "I've been black for 60 years. For me, stupidity, there are dumb folks who just say dumb ...

Seven years after leaving "The View," Rosie O'Donnell returned as a co-host on Monday, surprising fans with a much slimmer body (and with bare feet!)

The TV personality once tipped the scales at 237 pounds, but after having a heart attack in 2012 she knew she had to lose some weight and become healthier. However, the weight loss process has been mentally challenging.

"I'm not used to it yet. I still buy the wrong-sized clothes," she told the audience. "A lot of people who have never had weight issues their whole life would assume that losing weight and going from morbidly obese to being a...

McCarthy was let go from the show after just one season during a cast shake-up last week, departing along with fellow co-host Sherri Shepherd; which is something she obviously did not see coming.

"Believe it or not, I think I'm still on 'The View,'" McCarthy tells New You when asked where she thinks she'll be in 20 years. "I love the show. I'm doing so much work to improve myself-signing up f...

Recently it was rumored Monica Lewinsky could be in the running to fill a chair, and now Sarah Palin has thrown her name out there as a possibility.
