A new report suggested on Wednesday that “The View” co-host Meghan McCain is behind the leaks about her unhappiness with the show and she’s using it as a strategy to get more money.
It had been reported recently that McCain had been “feeling like a caged animal” on the show.
“A television executive associated with the show who spoke to CNN Business suggested the leaks about her possible departure was a contract negotiation strategy,” CNN reported Wednesday.
McCain reportedly makes nearly $1 million a year to give her thoughts on current events, but apparently, that is not enough for McCain.
“McCain regularly clashes with her co-hosts, and the on-air conflicts have gone viral on social media, generating numerous headlines,” CNN reported. “But ABC doesn’t necessarily view that as a bad thing, the television executive who spoke to CNN Business said. Instead, for now, the television executive said ABC is thought to enjoy the buzz that the skirmishes bring to the show.”
