Meghan McCain Confirms Feud With 'The View' Co-Host Abby Huntsman

January 30, 2020

Meghan McCain revealed some juicy details about "The View."

McCain confirmed that she and her co-host Abby Huntsman feuded while working on the show together, reported Page Six.

On "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen," McCain revealed that the two argued behind the scenes, but they have both apologized to each other.

“Abby and I have been friends for over 10 years. Our parents were friends in politics, we worked at Fox together. Part of the reason she came to ‘The View’ is because we were friends,” McCain said.

“We are still very good friends. We are very close. I just talked to her yesterday morning. She’s campaigning with her dad. I think she was genuinely conflicted about her dad running for governor and her not helping, and that is the reason why she left.”

“We did get in a fight," McCain admitted, but clarified, "which is a very small fight and a friend fight, and all friendships have ups and downs.”

Earlier this month, Huntsman announced that she is exiting the daytime talk show to help her father, Jon Huntsman Jr., campaign for governor of Utah.

Fox News reported that she will serve as a "senior advisor" on her father's team.

Since Huntsman's departure, McCain called the rumors “emotionally taxing.”

“This has been a really, really rough few weeks for me because I didn’t want her to go, selfishly, because I thought she was an amazing co-host and just having a friend there has been lovely,” said McCain. “But it’s been really emotionally taxing to have like our friendship used this way in the media. It’s taken a real toll on me.”
