It’s been a turbulent few weeks at “The View” with Abby Huntsman abruptly quitting and controversial co-host Meghan McCain seemingly at odds with everyone else on the panel but according to co-host Sunny Hostin everything is fine.
The legal pundit, 51, who has been on the morning show since 1997 says the backstage drama “is what it is.”
“We’re covering I think a really important time in our country and everyone is really passionate and I think we’re all on edge for the country and I think that’s what people are seeing,” she told Page Six Tuesday during the opening night of “A Soldier’s Story” on Broadway. “We’re happy for Abby, we’re sad for us of course because she did some of the lifting of our spirits and now she’s not there.”
And as for all the backbiting and descriptions of McCain, 35, as “rude,” Hostin simply said, “I think they should speak to Meghan (about it).”
The ABC legal analyst is grateful that she’s “able to give voice to the voiceless” on the long-running talkfest.
“I think we’re all really fortunate to get paid as well as we are paid to have the platform that we have, it’s a blessing,” she added.
And as for whether other co-hosts would do well to remember that Hostin just laughed off the suggestion.
