Whoopi Goldberg Feuds With White House Party Crasher Michaele Salahi (VIDEO)

Feud alert: Whoopi Goldberg is defending herself from allegations she hit White House party crasher Michaele Salahi during a taping of The View. Whoopi admitted today she used “choice words” to address Salahi after the show, after she heard that the new Real Housewives of D.C. star told a producer that Whoopi “hit” her.

Salahi’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, told ETOnline that a nosy Whoopi forced Salahi to dish about the White House incident:

“Goldberg came from backstage behind Mrs. Salahi, shook her arm, and told her to move on and talk about the White House. This was startling to Mrs. Salahi, as she was being interviewed by Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd, and Whoopi Goldberg was not part of the segment.”

A rep for The View fired back:

“After being told she was being accused of hitting Ms. Salahi, Whoopi proceeded to defend herself verbally from this baseless claim in a heated exchange with the Salahis.”

Note to future View guests – don’t mess with Whoopi!
