Compiled by Denise Martin and Stephanie Lysaght Barbara Walters "wanted everyone to believe and think and act as if [the women on 'The View'] get along and are really good friends and happy and hang out together, and, you know, that's just not the reality. "I'm not saying they loathe each other, but the fact of the matter is, there was not a lot of camaraderie off camera." - Rosie O'Donnell to reporters while promoting her NBC variety special "There are some people who have done this show and then for years feel like they have to dump on it, maybe for their own publicity. And that not only hurts me, but I resent it, so if the shoe fits, lady, get on, ladies, get on with your lives. We are not perfect, we are not always happy, but we're pretty good." - Barbara Walters on "The View"
