Whoopie's Run-in With the Whitehouse Gatecrasher

Whitehouse gatecrasher, Michaele Salahi and Whoopi Goldberg fight backstage at The View.
Controversy erupted on the ABC hit morning talk fest The View when co-host Whoopi Goldberg got into it with Michaele Salahi of The Real Housewives of DC, who achieved infamy as the White House Gatecrasher.

Goldberg was not part of the segment that is now the center of controversy. As Salahi sat on a sofa with her co-stars and Sherri Shepherd and Joy Behar, Whoopi unexpectedly came onto the set from backstage and touched Salahi’s back, slightly startling her.

Different versions of this event are being released by The View and the Salahi’s attorney —but one thing they both agree on is that it ended with Whoopi and Michaele in a vicious argument.

The View released an official statement outlining what happened: “At one point during Michaele Salahi’s appearance on The View on Wednesday, Whoopi lightly touched Ms. Salahi to get her attention and said to her “Excuse me, can you get back to the White House, please,” meaning could Ms. Salahi return to the original subject of the conversation. After the show, Ms. Salahi and her husband accused Whoopi of hitting Ms. Salahi. As the broadcast clearly shows, the accusation was completely unfounded and erroneous. After the show and after being told she was being accused of hitting Ms. Salahi, Whoopi proceeded to defend herself verbally from this baseless claim in a heated exchange with the Salahi’s.”

The Salahi’s attorney Lisa Bloom tells the story differently and with more detail.
Bloom told that Bravo had asked Michaele not to be referred to as the White House Gatecrasher. That didn’t go as planned during the taping of The View.

“There's Michaele on The View, live -- and Joy and Sherri both called Michaele the White House Gatecrasher,” Bloom told “She was upset but maintained her composure.”

Although Whoopi was not part of the segment in which the newest Real Housewives were interviewed, they had what seemed to be an innocent run-in that later turned ugly.

“Whoopi came from behind and according to Michaele, shook her arm gently. It was not violent, but it was startling,” Bloom said. “Whoopi said, ‘Move on, move on, get to the White House.’”

But it appears that Whoopi does not shake her arm but lightly touches her back. The clip show that Salahi does not appear to be upset by this even after Whoopi walks back upstage.

Bloom added that her client never claimed Whoopi hit her.
“When the segment ended Michaele burst into tears backstage and several people came up to talk to her and she found an office,” Bloom said.

At that point, Whoopi unleashed a few f-bombs on her morning show guest, says Bloom.
“Whoopi came in and according to Michaele said, ‘I don't think I f**king hit you. What the f**k is this.’”

Michaele responded, according to Bloom, “What are you talking about?”

And Whoopi said, “Someone said that you said I hit you,” Bloom recalled to of the chain of events.

“Whoopi berated her and dropped the f-bomb many times,” Bloom said. “Michaele was devastated.”

Bloom said Michaele thinks she has been treated badly by the show.
“She is not asking for apology, but Bloom said, "I think they deserve an apology. It’s outrageous and I’m surprised this would happen.”

um yeah but they teach you in second grade to keep your damn hands to yourself at all times, don't invade anybody's physical space, whoopi could have done all of that by just whispering close to her ear or something.

If she wins a lawsuit over this trivial nonsense, then this world is truly in a mess. This money /attention hungry whore is so transparent. She should be thrown into jail for extortion or in a mental institution for a severe case stupidity.

And that bitch Lisa Bloom, daughter of Gloria Allred is just another ambulane chaser. She'll glom onto any story true or not.

I remember Bloom crucifying Gary Coleman couple months before he died on that Insider bullshit. Karma is gonna catch with her and Salahi lying ass and I don't like Whoopi, but this bitch is straight tripping.

I find it hard to fathom this individual is even getting this much attention (which of course is what she wants. She and her dead beat hubby) and that she actually has an attorney. Figures her attorney would be Gloria Allred's daughter. SMH. True Ambulance chasers indeed. They (this case and her hubby) are an older version of Heidi and that thing she was allegedly married to. Wow, what some people won't do for attention. She is truly a sad individual.

If she and her husband were black. They would have been shot on sight. Whoopie tapped her not hit her and she and everyone knows that.

DO NOT refer to HIM as an it. There is no level of which one needs Christ. We all just need HIM. SMH
This whole story is a mess. This so called lady needs to get somewhere (along with her attorney) and sit down. She is an embarrassment.

The scrawny fame whore looks a lot better than Woopie. Woopie has bad hair, the face of a beast and is obese. Fame whore has nice hair, nice skin and is only in need of a higher calorie diet. Fame whores can crash gates because they look like they belong at the events they crash, people like Woopie would get shot because anyone would know that she is low rent and is only there to go thieving.
