The View has become "A View to a Kill" — as co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg lunge for each other's throats!

"Whoopi and Joy appear to get along in front of the cameras," a source told

"But backstage, it's a different matter. They're mortal enemies — and Joy wants to be the queen bee!"

Goldberg, 60, has told pals she's fed up with the daytime chat show, and insiders said she's still steaming over all the whoop-la around Behar's exit in 2013 — followed by her return just months later.

"Whoopi made it clear she wasn't happy about Joy's 'grandstanding' when she made a big deal about leaving," the source spilled. "Especially when Joy started guest-hosting almost right away … before returning for good."

Goldberg is no stranger to controversy on the sagging talk fest, known for its revolving door of hosts. She openly battled with former co-host Rosie O'Donnell after blaming her for the show's declining ratings.

Behar, 74, is now the only original host left on The View, and just signed a three-year deal worth a reported $2.5 million.
