Last month, the tell-all book Ladies Who Punch aimed to tell the real story of what happened behind the scenes at The View. The book’s publication sparked a war between Rosie O’Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Jenny McCarthy also used the opportunity to slam her former coworkers.

But now everyone involved in The View sat down to talk to the book’s author, Ramin Setoodeh, who’s friends with Meghan McCain. Whoopi Goldberg refrained from speaking with the author.

The Sister Act star explained her decision on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Click through the gallery to find out why she didn’t speak up — and to read the harsh words she had for those who did.
