The new season of "The View" has been drama-free so far. However, that changed on Thursday, Sept. 25, during a "Hot Topic" discussion on "spanking children." "The View" co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell reportedly had a heated argument during the show's commercial break.

According to Radar Online, a source claimed they argued before studio audiences where Rosie O'Donnell aired her grievances after being cut-off for commercial break. The discussion was going overtime, so Whoopi Goldberg was supposedly told by producers, via earpiece, to pause for break. Rosie, on the other hand, wasn't wearing the ear monitor, so producers had no way of talking to her while the show was on air.

According to the source, as soon as "The View" paused for commercial break, Rosie O'Donnell "took the handheld microphone that they use to engage the audience." That's when she directly told Whoopi Goldberg that she had hurt her feelings. Rosie reportedly said she was upset and didn't appreciate what Whoopi had done.

According to the show's insider, Whoopi told Rosie that they could talk it over some other time. However instead of stopping, Rosie allegedly continued to air her feelings.

"Well I just don't appreciate you saying that you were going to do something and not doing it. It makes me upset and I just don't want to have to go through this," O'Donnell said, according to the source.

Eventually, the co-host had had enough that she also finally snapped and cursed at Rosie. A hush from the audience supposedly followed after Whoopi Goldberg snapped and muttered the F-word and told Rosie to leave the matter alone. The actress was heard telling Rosie that she's already tired of having to deal with her "s-!"

A representative for "The View," Lauri Hogan, told New York Daily News that the exchange was blown out of proportion and that it was nothing but a simple misunderstanding. She claimed Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell have sorted it out and are working closely together again. "The View" is supposed to be a show about strong opinions, which is clearly part of the co-hosts' job.
