  Meghan McCain on How Her Relationship With Whoopi Goldberg Changed During the Pandemic (Exclusive) Meghan McCain is opening up about her relationship with her former 'The View' co-hosts.Goldberg and McCain got into a few fiery arguments on The View, given that McCain was the sole conservative on the panel, which included Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Sara Haines. McCain said that their relationship started out maternal and that when she started, she told her father, late Arizona senator John McCain, that she was going to have her back. But she says their relationship changed during the coronavirus pandemic.

"You missed me so much, Joy," McCain, the lone Republican on the panel, said at one point. "You missed me so much when I was on maternity leave ... You missed fighting with me."

Behar, a Democrat, replied: "I did not. I did not miss you. Zero."

In a new interview with Variety, McCain revealed new details about that experience, which was filmed remotely at various locations during the COVID-19 pandemic, that the public didn't get to see - including that she had a physical reaction to what happened live on-air.

"After the show, I went back to my office and I had a panic attack. I couldn't stop crying, and I'm not always crying," McCain told her friend Ramin Setoodeh. "I couldn't compose myself. I threw up in the garbage can. I was so overcome."

McCain, who joined the hit ABC daytime show in October 2017 at the urging of her father, admitted that there wasn't always bad blood between her and Behar. She said the two once had a "great relationship" because they are both "strong" and "unemotional" and like to keep their private lives out of the public eye.

McCain said that their relationship may have begun turning sour quickly during COVID because "it's easier to solve problems in person."

The mother of one said she asked the executive producer of "The View" and Behar's personal producer for an apology but, "they said she wouldn't do it. I don't know if they asked her."

And despite the drama, McCain was having other issues while returning to set. She also revealed to Variety that she "had postpartum anxiety" and was "really nervous" to be back at work and "starting TV all over again."
