Meghan McCain Breaks Silence On Joy Behar’s Diss After Her Return To ‘The View’: It’s Been ‘Rough’

While appearing on ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,’ Meghan McCain shared a message for Joy Behar. Joy said she did ‘not miss’ her while Meghan was on maternity leave!

Meghan McCain, 36, admitted that she has had a “rough reentry” back into The View, following a three-month maternity leave from her talk show. Not only does Meghan have to deal with the tense political climate, but tensions on set: Joy Behar point-black said “I did not miss you, zero” to Meghan on the Jan. 5 episode of The View. It had only been Meghan’s second day back on the job, and she shared her true thoughts on Joy’s curtness after Andy Cohen inquired about it on the Jan. 11 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

“So it’s been such a rough reentry back into The View,” Meghan began, after welcoming her first child with husband Ben Domenech. “I mean I was on maternity leave for three months. I had a really hard birth, actually. I remember texting when I was in the hospital. I had preeclampsia, I had to have a magnesium drip.”

“I had a really hard time getting back to work,” Meghan later said, pointing out the “horrific attack on the Capitol” in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6. With that said, Meghan moved onto her main point: Joy.

“And I will say, I missed everyone. Even if some people didn’t miss me, I miss the show. We’re a family,” Meghan revealed. She continued, “All these women were at my dad’s [John McCain‘s] funeral, we’ve been through a lot of sh-t together. I miss being on the show and I hope that we can all be examples, myself included, for where the show should go forward. Because whether we like it or not, I’m not going anywhere on the show, Joy’s not going anywhere on the show. We all have to live and co-exist together, just like Americans right now.”

Meghan was also not looking for an actual fight when she poked fun at Joy during that episode of The View that she was referring to. “Joy, you missed me so much when I was on maternity leave. You missed me so much. You missed fighting with me,” Meghan said amid a squabble on the Jan. 5 episode. However, Joy did not appreciate being interrupted.

“I did not. I did not miss you. Zero,” Joy said, and not in a lighthearted way. Meghan took offense, snapping back, “Oh, my God. You know what? That’s so nasty. That’s, like, so nasty,”“I was teasing but you said something rude. Really?”

Meghan McCain slams Trump and calls for 25th Amendment

Meghan McCain is calling on her fellow Republicans to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove President Donald Trump from office in the wake of the violent siege of the US Capitol by his supporters. 

The View co-host on Thursday condemned Trump and his supporters after they forced their way past metal security barricades, broke windows and scaled walls to fight their way into the Capitol in a rampage that left four dead.

McCain, who is a Republican but has been vocal in her opposition to the current administration, slammed Trump as a ‘mad king’ and called the riots at the Capitol ‘one of America’s darkest days’. 

‘I’m calling on all Republicans and conservatives who still have clout,’ the daughter of late Republican Sen John McCain said. 

‘We have to invoke the 25th Amendment. We cannot withstand this.

‘Our country cannot go on like this. We cannot possibly risk the idea that we could have more violence between now and President Biden getting elected and inaugurated.’ 

Meghan McCain on Thursday condemned Trump and his supporters in the wake of the violent siege of the US Capitol

The two top Democrats in Congress, Sen Charles Schumer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, both reached out directly to Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday to try to push him to act immediately to remove Trump from office.

McCain said the United States needed to take a ‘very hard look’ at Trump and where the country currently is the wake of the Capitol violence.

‘This is one of the great national tragedies of my lifetime, this is one of America’s darkest days,’ she said.  

‘I think that this is a time to take a very hard look at where we are as a country and take a very hard look at where we are with President Trump.

‘The bedrock of our democracy and the bedrock of who we are as Americans is the peaceful transition of power and he is clearly a president who has turned into a mad king.’ 

McCain went on to slam the Trump supporters responsible for the violence, calling them ‘b***ards’ and ‘scum of the earth’, before criticizing Ivanka Trump for initially calling the rioters ‘patriots’ in a since-deleted tweet.  

‘You are not patriots. You do not represent America. You are scum of the earth who are using and abusing and bastardizing all that I love and have grown up with for your own sick agenda. And that agenda has been directly — directly — sent by President Trump. And then he didn’t disavow it,’ she said. 

‘He didn’t send in the National Guard. And then he called them ‘special’ and said, ‘we loved them’. 

‘Ivanka Trump called these people ‘patriots.’ I am a patriot, I come from a patriotic family. I come from a family of service as does everyone on this show.’

Speaking directly to the rioters, McCain said: ‘You are hurting our country. You are becoming a national embarrassment and we have to get (Trump) out immediately because this cannot stand. 

‘The final words I want to say on this show this morning: In the words of Oliver Cromwell, ‘In the name of God, Go.’ Go. We cannot take this anymore.’ 

Trump has had a fraught relationship with the staunchly conservative McCain family ever since he disparaged the late Arizona senator during the 2016 campaign.  

His widow, Cindy McCain, who said she hadn’t voted for a Democrat since she was 18, shocked when she endorsed Democrat Joe Biden during the presidential campaign. 

At the time, she cited the decades-long friendship between her family and Biden’s and their bond as the parents of children serving in the military. 

Trump reacted harshly to the endorsement, disparaging both Biden and John McCain. 

‘Joe Biden was John McCain’s lapdog. So many BAD decisions on Endless Wars & the V.A., which I brought from a horror show to HIGH APPROVAL. Never a fan of John. Cindy can have Sleepy Joe!’ Trump tweeted at the time. 

The chaotic scenes at the Capitol unfolded after hundreds of Trump’s supporters converged on the Capitol in a bid to overturn his election defeat.

Trump had, at a rally just hours earlier, urged his supporters ‘to fight’ and march on the Capitol building to pressure their elected officials to reject the results of the election he lost.  

About 50 minutes into the speech, some of his supporters, waving Trump flags, began heading toward Capitol Hill, where bloody chaos ensued inside one of the most recognizable symbols of American democracy.

Whoopi Goldberg SHUTS DOWN Meghan McCain on The View in interview with Senator-elect Rev. Warnock

Whoopi Goldberg SHUTS DOWN Meghan McCain on The View amid interview with Senator-elect Rev. Raphael Warnock

Whoopi Goldberg quickly shut down Meghan McCain in a segment on The View Wednesday interviewing Senator-elect Rev. Raphael Warnock of Georgia.

In the segment, McCain asked the Democrat, fresh off his victory over Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in Tuesday’s election, about potential changes in the offing with the Democrats grabbing the majority in the U.S. Senate.

‘I watched the race closely, just like everyone else, and you talked a lot about unity on the campaign trail, and the need to unify the country, and unify Georgians,’ McCain said, ‘but progressives across the country are celebrating the election could mean adding two states, eliminating the filibuster and packing the Supreme Court with more members.

McCain said cited how Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin ‘has joined the Republicans to reject those ideas,’ asking Warnock where he would vote on such issues.

‘Chuck Schumer tweeted this morning, “Buckle Up,” so you can understand how it’s hard for Republicans like me to believe in the spirit of unity,’ McCain said. ‘I want to know, will you do the same thing as Joe Manchin and agree not to follow up on all those things?’

Warnock said he was ‘not focused’ on the issues McCain asked about, saying he was looking at helping ‘ordinary’ Georgia residents persevere through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

McCain responded, ‘Senator, I do believe that average America care about packing the courts and I just want to know if you agree, and join Joe Manchin, and agree that you are not for that.’

‘They’re asking about whether they can earn a livable wage for working hard every day, and they’re wondering when in the world they’re gonna get relief after waiting for it for months.’

Joy Behar defiantly tells Meghan McCain ‘I did not miss you’ during her maternity leave

She returned to The View after a three month maternity leave just one day ago, but Meghan McCain has already found herself in yet another row with Joy Behar.

The co-hosts were discussing the divisions within the Republican and Democratic parties when conflicted erupted, prompting Joy to tell Meghan, 36, she did not miss her during her recent maternity leave. 

‘I was speaking! I’m talking!’ Joy, 78, said as the debate began between the two.

‘I did not miss you’: Joy Behar had some harsh words for Meghan McCain as the two went head-to-head on The View on Tuesday 

‘Joy you missed me so much when I was on maternity leave! You missed me so much! You missed fighting with me,’ Meghan said.

‘I did not,’ Joy said, calmly and defiantly. ‘I did not miss you.’

Meghan was visibly offended by what her co-host had just told her.

‘You know what, that’s so nasty,’ Meghan shot back. ‘That’s like so nasty. I was teasing because you said something rude. Like really?’

Before the argument could escalate any further, Whoopi Goldberg stepped in to diffuse the situation. 

‘We, believe it or not, will be right back,’ she told viewers.  

Meghan officially returned to The View following a three month maternity leave on Monday, but it wasn’t exactly smooth sailing for the conservative cohost. 

Meghan found herself going head-to-head with cohosts again as the topic of Donald Trump’s phone call with Georgia Secretary Of State Brad Raffensperger over the 2020 election results arose.

At one point, Meghan remarked the election should not have been as ‘close’ as it ended up being.  

‘Biden won by eight million votes, Meghan, that’s not close!’ Joy said. ‘That’s a lot of people.’

‘But Joy, if you are so comfortable, then why is everyone so hysterical about what’s happening in Georgia?’ Meghan pointed out.

Eventually, Whoopi stepped in and cut to commercial break.

Meghan welcomed her first child, a baby girl named Liberty, with her husband Ben Domenech in September 2020.

The couple married in 2017 after a four-month long engagement.

Meghan reflected on the joys of motherhood in a heartfelt post she shared to Instagram shortly after giving birth, and included a photo of a glimmering gold ‘Mama’ necklace.   

‘Motherhood is euphoria. All of the cliches have come true and exceeded well beyond my wildest expectations ~ it is hands down the best thing I have ever done in my entire life and I am completely in awe of our daughter. Having Liberty is like observing my entire heart live and exist outside of my body. She is a little wildcat ~ beautiful, strong, alert, already so full life and spirit… I only wish I had done this sooner.’ 

She also said the birth of her daughter helped heal the hole in her heart left by the death of her father, Senator John McCain.

‘This is the first time since my Dad passed that the part of my heart that broke off and left with him no longer feels missing,’ she wrote.

Joy Behar Smacks Down Meghan McCain After She Interrupts: ‘I Didn’t Miss You On Maternity Leave’

After a three month break, Meghan McCain and Joy Behar were back to fighting on ‘The View’ — and it got personal. Joy flatly told Meghan she didn’t ‘miss’ her during her maternity leave.

They’re baaaack. Just one day after Meghan McCain‘s return to The View after maternity leave, she and co-host Joy Behar, 78, got into one of their patented knockdown, drag-out fights. The drama began when the ladies were, of course, discussing politics. Meghan, 36, interjected as Joy was claiming that the Republican party was “in trouble” and allegedly on the verge of division. “Excuse me, I’m not done!” Joy yelled.

After a little back and forth, Meghan jokingly told Joy, “you missed me so much when I was on maternity leave. You missed fighting with me.” Joy flatly responded: “I did not. I did not miss you. Zero.” Needless to say, that was enough to shock the entire panel of co-hosts into silence. A genuinely taken aback Meghan commented about how “rude” and “nasty” Joy was to her — and moderator Whoopi Goldberg didn’t disagree.

Whoopi, 65, hurriedly moved everyone on and tried to hold the peace. “Guys, everyone stop,” she said, halting the continued arguments. “This is not the way to do it, and so I’m going to become ‘Whoopi’ and say, Sara, I’d like to hear from you right now.” At that point, though co-hosts Sara Haines and Sunny Hostin attempted to keep the conversation going, it was kaput. When the show came back to commercial break for an interview with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, all was back to normal.

Joy Behar, Meghan McCain (ABC)

Meghan and Joy have a long history of fighting on The View, but the airwaves have been silent while Meghan was away for three months after giving birth to her daughter, Liberty Sage McCain Domenech. Her first day back on the job, January 4, came without any squabbling between the two women. It’s very clear that the detente was short-lived.

‘Long-term solution’ to feud is Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ‘to enjoy freedom’, expert claims

The ‘long-term solution’ to the rift between Prince Harry and Prince William is for the Sussexes to ‘enjoy the freedom of America’ while the Cambridges dedicate their life to duty, a royal expert has claimed.

Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 39, are currently residing in their $14million mansion in Santa Barbara with one-year-old son Archie, having stepped back from duty in March last year.  

Speaking to Elle.com, royal biographer Robert Lacey said he thought ‘there will be some sort of reconciliation’ between the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of Cambridge this year. 

But he said the brother’s relationship is ‘never going to be the same’, explaining: ‘I expect that is the long-term solution here: Duty in the form of William and Kate will take over the situation, and Harry and his love will enjoy the freedom of America and, I hope, obviously there will be some sort of reconciliation.’

The ‘long-term solution’ to the rift between Prince Harry and Prince William is for the Sussexes to ‘enjoy the freedom of America’ while the Cambridges dedicate their life to duty, royal expert Robert Lacey has claimed 

Robert said the brother’s long ‘history and texture’ would always be there, suggesting they both ‘took something different’ from their parent’s marriage breakdown.

The royal expert explained the Duke of Cambridge had found ‘strength’ in his duty, saying: ‘At least he had this duty, this responsibility to be King, the future monarch, and he had to live up to that.’

Meanwhile he said Prince Harry ‘took a different lesson’ from the relationship, adding that the Duke was going to ‘go for love…unapologetically.’

He added: ‘His parents were locked into an arranged, loveless marriage, and he’s not going to make that mistake.’ 

Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 39, are currently living in their $14 million mansion in California, having stepped back from royal duty in March

Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 39, are currently living in their $14 million mansion in California, having stepped back from royal duty in March 

It is believed the trigger that caused the rift to develop between William and Harry was when the Duke of Cambridge advised his younger sibling to ‘take things slow’ when he first began dating Meghan Markle in 2017. 

Relations became so sour that they reportedly didn’t talk for weeks after Harry’s wedding, where William was best man. Then Megxit, and the way it was handled, left William and Charles devastated.  

In a documentary in 2019 – Harry & Meghan: An African Journey – the Duke of Sussex, admitted he and William are ‘certainly on different paths at the moment’.

He told ITV’s Tom Bradby: ‘Inevitably stuff happens. But we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers.’ 

During lockdown, a source told Fabulous Digital that the brothers have been chatting via Zoom.

‘William finds Zoom a good, informal way of keeping in touch, and some would say “tabs”, on his younger brother,’ they said, adding that the calls remain private between the two brothers, with a friend close to the pair claiming William is ‘very anxious’ to keep the calls ‘low key and casual’. 

Meanwhile there are hopes the unveiling of the new Princess Diana statue at Kensington Palace this summer  ‘will help to heal old wounds’ for the brothers.

A statement on behalf of the Duke of Sussex and Duke of Cambridge issued by Kensington Palace in August read: ‘The statue that Prince William and Prince Harry have commissioned to commemorate their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, will be installed next year on what would have been her 60th birthday.’ 

The couples were last seen together in public at the Commonwealth Day service in March of this year

The statue was commissioned to mark the twentieth anniversary of Princess Diana’s death and recognise her positive impact in the UK and around the world.

Robert’s comments about the brother’s relationship comes days after royal biographer Angela Levin claimed Prince Harry has ‘discarded life as an action man to become an airy-fairy do-gooder’ with a ‘woke West Coast life’.

Royal expert Angela, who wrote Harry: Conversations with the Prince in 2018, has claimed that the Duke has become a ‘shadow of his former self’ since moving to California. 

Writing in The Sunday Telegraph, she said while Prince Harry ‘balked at being “the spare” to Prince William, he seems to accept being second to Meghan’. 

The biographer said Prince Harry’s recent appearances were ‘out of character’ from the royal she once knew, who would instantly identify with everyone he spoke to.

Her comments come days after royal expert Hugo Vickers said Prince Harry is ‘isolated from his family, the army, his friends, the Commonwealth’ in the US, telling The Telegraph: ‘It’s a pointless existence in self-exile.’

The royal biographer compared Prince Harry’s actions to those of Prince William and Kate, adding: ‘During the NHS clapping, I thought how, after the Cambridges clapped, it would have been great to have heard from him.’

Earlier this week, the Duke and Duchess launched the website for their non-profit organisation Archewell, and set out their goal to ‘build a better world’ in an open letter posted online.

But the site prominently plugs the couple’s commercial ventures – Archewell Audio, the brand they have chosen for their £30m podcasting deal with Spotify, and Archewell Productions, their chosen name for their Netflix production tie-up said to be worth as much as £100m.   

The announcement follows their first Spotify podcast on Tuesday which saw their son Archie make his broadcast debut.

Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha will finally release bombshell memoir

Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha to release bombshell memoir ‘The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister’ next week – which she promises will reveal ‘hidden truths’ about the royal

  • Meghan Markle’s sister Samantha, 56, will release tell-all book in US next week
  • The bombshell memoir will be titled ‘The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister Part 1’
  • Promises to expose ‘hidden truths as a royal fairy plummets from the tea towels’

Meghan Markle’s half-sister Samantha is set to finally release a tell-all memoir after years of touting her dysfunctional relationship with the Duchess of Sussex. 

Samantha, 56, is set to release the bombshell book titled ‘The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister Part 1’ in the US next Friday, after announcing she was writing the memoir in 2016. 

According to Barnes & Noble, the Duchess’ sister promises the 330-page tome will expose ‘hidden truths about her family, as a royal fairy tale plummets from the tea towels’.

Meghan, 39, who is currently living in her $14 million Santa Barbara mansion with Prince Harry, 36, and one-year-old Archie, has been estranged from Samantha for some time and has previously branded her claims ‘absurd’.

The book has been published by Barnes & Noble, with the description stating: ‘Things are not always as they seem, in a world where social labels define who we are, how we live, and how we view each other.

‘Samantha Markle finds herself caught in between the cross hairs of media mayhem, when she reveals hidden truths about her family.’

It also hints that ‘things are not always as they seem’ and sometimes the ‘truth is stranger than fiction’. 

Meghan is thought to have last seen her sister, who lives in Florida, in 2008 – yet Samantha has previously been highly critical in interviews about Meghan’s character.

She has previously branded her a ‘shallow social climber’, blamed Meghan for freezing out their father and other members of the family, called her ‘inhumane’ and ‘the Duchess of Nonsense’. 

In February last year it was reported that Meghan burst into tears after discovering her estranged half-sister Samantha was planning to write a book about her.  

The Duchess of Sussex felt she was being ‘taken advantage of’ by her sister, according to a close friends. 

Samantha first revealed her literary ambitions in April 2016 when Meghan’s romance with Prince Harry became public.

She announced last year she would be writing a second book which, like the first, which will be called, ‘In the Shadows of the Duchess’. 

In August last year, it was revealed Meghan was ‘furious’ with members of her family after ‘absurd claims’ were made against her as her relationship with Prince Harry heated up. 

Bombshell biography Finding Freedom, by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, claimed Meghan and her ‘estranged’ sibling had not seen each other in more than a decade, and had only bumped into each other twice since they were children.

“Make it a better world”: Meghan Markle’s New Year’s wish | The State

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Henry and Meghan, they wished that by 2021 a better world could be built.

In a letter posted yesterday on the official website of their new organization, Archewell, the couple invites people to be more compassionate.

“I am my mother’s son. And I am the mother of our child. Together we bring you Archewell. We believe in the best of humanity ”, says the text, accompanied by two photographs, one of Enrique with the late Princess Diana and the other of the former actress with her mother, Doria Ragland.

“Because we have seen the best of humanity. We have experienced compassion and kindness, both from our mothers and from strangers. In the face of fear, struggle, and pain, it can be easy to lose sight of this. Together, we can choose courage, healing, and connection. Together, we can choose to put compassion into action. “

Through their new organization, the Dukes will support five organizations, one of them the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University, which develops techniques to promote altruism.

And the queen too

Queen Elizabeth II also issued a positive message, alluding to the complicated 2020 pandemic.
“We must console ourselves that, although we have more to bear, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; We’ll meet again.

“I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year,” said the Queen of England on her social media.
