As RadarOnline.com reported, Whoopi and Elisabeth got into a heated confrontation on Wednesday when Hasselback made her return as the guest co-host.

But the tension between the two continued off the air.

"Whoopi Goldberg may talk with Elisabeth Hasselback when the cameras are rolling," an insider told Deuxmoi on Thursday, adding that "on breaks, they were the only two that did not interact."

Viewers clung to their television screens when Whoopi gave Elisabeth a piece of her mind after the conservative television personality spewed her anti-abortion stance.

"I believe our creator assigned value to life, and that those lives have plan and purpose over them as designed by God that are not limited to the circumstances of conception, nor the situations they're born into," she said.

Elisabeth continued, “I might not change your minds, but I hope women out there know to look for the nonprofits, look for the agencies that help you create a birth plan and match you with an adoptive family."

Whoopi pushed back, responding that she believes God provided women with the “freedom of choice.”

"God doesn't make mistakes… [God] made us smart enough to know when it wasn't going to work for us,” Goldberg responded. “That's the beauty of giving us freedom of choice."

Elisabeth cut off the longtime View co-host before she could finish — a move that infuriated Goldberg.

At one point during their tense altercation, Elisabeth annoyingly held up a towel that read, "I'd agree with you, but then we would both be wrong.”

The episode went to break before they could find a mutual understanding, and now we know they didn't come to a conclusion off of the screen either.

The View is set to announce Ana Navarro and Alyssa Farah Griffin as permanent co-hosts on Thursday — but they weren't their first choices.

An insider told RadarOnline.com that execs made the abrupt decision after Republican politician Liz Cheney turned them down.
