Whoopi Goldberg to Guest on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’

Comedian and TV host Whoopi Goldberg will be a guest on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” tomorrow evening, November 23.

The last time Goldberg and “Factor” host Bill O’Reilly were in the same room, it made for great television.

That would be in October, during a now-infamous incident which saw Goldberg and her “The View” co-host Joy Behar stormed off the set when O’Reilly, who was a guest on the show, made comments about Muslims that they felt was offensive.

In her “O’Reilly Factor” interview, Goldberg will discuss the incident and the rhetoric behind it, as well as her latest book and film projects.

Brian Ross talks to ‘The View’ Ladies about Terrorism

After working through the weekend covering the cargo plane scare, ABC’s chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross sat down with the ladies of “The View” this morning to talk about Friday’s terror attempt.

During “Hot Topics,” Barbara Walters said that “we are at the highest risk of attack since 9-11.” Ross told the ladies that domestic flights are safe; however “The real danger is the reach from places like Yemen and Pakistan into this country.”

Bill O’Reilly on ‘The View’ Walkout: ‘I Was Going to Myself ‘This is Great’

Tomorrow, Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly will be on “The Rachael Ray Show,” his first daytime talk show appearance since that now-infamous incident on “The View.”

Among other questions, Ray asks O’Reilly how he felt when Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walked off the set:

“When they walked out, I was going to myself ‘this is great,’ because I knew I’d get five segments on the Factor. And I knew, I could just take that and I could get three or four shows out of this, number one.

Number two, Barbara [Walters] and I have been friends for a long time. When she said that shouldn’t have happened, I thought that was an interesting take. But, she and I disagree on the fundamental reason that that happened.

‘The View’ Hosts Explain Their Bill O’Reilly Walkout (VIDEO)

On today’s edition of “The View” co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar explained what made them so upset that they walked out during the middle of an interview with Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly.

“As soon as I said the B-word, I knew that I had to get up and leave, because I was going to cuss him out, I was done,” Goldberg said.

Bill O’Reilly’s Heated Appearance on ‘The View.’ Whoopi Goldberg & Joy Behar Walk Off Set (VIDEO)

Wow. Bill O’Reilly‘s appearance on “The View” this morning was one for the ages. The Fox News host got into a heated exchange with a few of the ladies, over the lower Manhattan mosque project, leading Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg to storm off the set.

Early in the segment, O’Reilly said to Behar: “Hold it. Hold it. Listen to me because you’ll learn something.” A couple minutes later, after the exchange got really heated, Behar stood up and said. “This is BS, Bill. I Don’t want to sit here.” She and Goldberg walked off.

Barbara Walters then chided her co-hosts saying sternly to the audience: “I want to say something. You have just seen what should not happen. We should be able to have discussions without washing our hands and screaming and walking offstage. I love my colleagues. It should not  have happened.”

Walters then laid in to O’Reilly, saying he was being demeaning and demanded he apologize. See what happens after the jump…

View_7.22.jpg

Fired, maybe rehired, Deptartment of Agriculture employee Shirley Sherrod continues to make the rounds, showing up this morning on “The View.”

HLN/”The View”‘s Joy Behar thinks Andrew Breitbart owes her an apology. “I have heard not one word from him,” said Behar. Elisabeth Hasselbeck thinks so too: “Obviously there should be some face-to-face apology to you.” Sherrod: “I think he should.”

Meanwhile, guest co-host Ali Wentworth (aka Mrs. George Stephanopoulos) thinks Sherrod should go straight to the top.

Wentworth: Can I give you some advice? When you meet with Obama next week at the White House, ask for the position of Agriculture Secretary. I think you’d be great at it.

Behar chimed in, “That’s how George Stephanopoulos got the job on “GMA.”

Barbara Walters to Appear on ‘The View’ July 12

Theview070810.jpg ABC News journalist and “The View” co-host Barbara Walters will make an appearance on the daytime talk show July 12, ABC says. It will be her first appearance on the program since undergoing surgery to have a heart valve replaced in early May.

The surgery was successful, and Walters has been out and about, but until now, viewers of the daytime talker have only heard updates from the other women on the program, as well as an occasional phone call from Walters.

However, viewers will have to wait a little longer before Walters is back on set with Joy Behar, Sherri Shephard, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Whoopi Goldberg. For her July 12 appearance, Walters will only be appearing live via Skype.

Update: Walters will also be returning to her weekly radio show “Here’s Barbara” on Sirius-XM July 12.

Red Eye’s Andy Levy Reveals His ‘Arenaphobia’

AndyLevy070110.jpg Fox News Channel’s late night show “Red Eye” has a cult following among many insomniacs. Part of that obsession is no doubt due to the program’s “ombudsman” Andy Levy.

Human EventsLisa De Pasquale subjects Levy to her “De Pasquale’s Dozen” line of questioning.

The questions are mostly fun, asking Levy what is on his summer reading list and what non-news websites he visits (the man loves MTA.info). But Levy also has a few words about another cable news personality:

4. Comedians like Joy Behar, Aisha Tyler and Whoopi Goldberg have criticized people like Ann Coulter for putting jokes into their speeches and writing. It’s ok for comedians to dabble in politics, but not the other way around. What role do you think humor has in politics?

LEVY: I think humor plays a huge role in politics-how could it not, with Joe Biden being Vice President? And I’m fine with that. (What I’m not fine with is you referring to Joy Behar as a comedian. It’s my understanding that comedians are supposed to be funny.)

Levy also discusses his tragic case of “arenaphobia” in the full interview.
