Rosie O'Donnell revealed that returning to "The View" is least likely to happen because her co-host Whoopi Goldberg didn't really like her.

During an interview on "The Howard Stern Show," Rosie O'Donnell opened up about how she felt disliked by Whoopi Goldberg while hosting "The View."

O'DONNELL TALKS ABOUT GOLDBERG

The former "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" host recently talked about her exit from "The View" in 2015 and explained that "it was better for everyone" because her co-host resented her.

The show streamed online for over three hours and had the host filming from her garage turned art studio. 

O'Donnell initially joined "The View" in 2006 and stayed until the following year. She came back in 2014, but left even before the season ended. When asked why Goldberg didn't like her, O'Donnell replied

"From day one, she was upset with. I threw to commercial cause I didn't think she saw the countdown, the guy was going like this." 

O'Donnell then started making a zero with her fist, before continuing: "She's been there forever. Maybe that's normal. I saw that and there was a pause and I said 'We'll be right back after this.'"

REMEMBERING BAD TIMES

Howard Stern also asked the former host about the time she mentioned Goldberg was mean to her like no one else was, which made O'Donnell share:

"She was mean to me on live TV. When people say what happened, I say go back and watch them. Watch the way it went down. Did it hurt my feelings? Tremendously."
