The Daily Mail Claims That Meghan McCain Threatened To Quit If “The View” Hired Ana Navarro Full-Time
The Daily Mail tells us that The View continues to be the place of majestic feminine intrigue, drama and cattiness that we think it is. As everyone knows, Meghan McCain gets into a lot of fights on the show, and most recently she got pissed when Hot Slut of 2016 Ana Navarro told her to turn down the shrieking.
Well, reportedly John McCain’s daughter, who only has The View gig through nepotism and affirmative action, hasn’t been Ana’s biggest fan for a while now. The Daily Mail claims that the other Republican voice at the table, Abby Huntsman, got a full-time spot after Meghan threatened to quit if producers gave the job to Ana Navarro. And that’s apparently why Ana only shows up on Fridays.
On last Friday’s episode, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Meghan, Abby, and Ana got into the Trump Whistleblower and Meghan went on about how if the liberals have a problem with Julian Assange, they should have a problem with the Trump Whistleblower too. Meghan got a lot of time to give her opinion, and when Ana gave hers, Meghan just couldn’t stop and kept squawking over Ana, which made Ana snap and say, “I said don’t scream at me, I’m two feet away.” That was it for Meghan and she walked off set. The Daily Mail’s source said that Meghan blew up backstage, because she was outraged that Ana embarrassed her and that “she can dish it, but she sure can’t take it.”
The full clip is here, but the “don’t scream at me” moment happens at the 3:45 mark.
Meghan talked about it with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live! saying she walked off so she could get her makeup touched up, and also suggested The View live-audience is bloodthirsty like a UFC match–which I believe:
The Daily Mail has a source who says that last season, Meghan “begged” the network not to hire Ana and threatened to quit. Don’t tease me, Meghan. The source said:
When ABC was considering hiring Navarro to replace former co-host Sara Haines in 2018, McCain said she would quit if she had to work with Navarro every day, the show source claims.
‘That’s how Ana ended up only doing one day a week,’ the source said.
The network subsequently began talks with former Fox News host Abby Huntsman, who is personal friends with McCain. ABC hired Abby over Ana for the full-time job.
And the source also said this about Meghan’s alleged reputation on the show:
“She has been disrespectful to her co-hosts, producers and the glam squad since she’s been on the show and finally, someone gave her a dose of her own medicine and she couldn’t handle it.”
That’s not all the strings Meghan pulls. Sherri Shepherd is also out of a gig because of Meghan, allegedly. After being on Andy’s show and saying that Meghan should “lighten up” on The View, Meghan got banned from the show.
“I’m not sure Sherri knows why she couldn’t promote her last movie and new Netflix show on The View, but the execs kowtowed to Meghan’s request because they’re always trying to appease her… It’s sickening for morale… With her bad behavior on air, the way the audience even sometimes boos her and her insubordination with the executive producers, anyone else would have been fired a long time. But Meghan? They just keep feeding the beast.”
Feeding the beast?! Wow this person fucking hates Meghan McCain. That is some Real Housewives dinner-fight language right there! Sunny Hostin, you put that motherfucking phone down and stop ratting on John McCain’s daughter!
