Stars of 'The View' -- Then & Now!

"Let's agree to disagree," the Fox News star says.

Judge Jeanine Pirro tried to close the book Saturday night on "The View" drama that occurred both on and off camera Thursday between her and Whoopi Goldberg.

"I couldn't let the week end without addressing what happened on 'The View' this week. All of you saw it and most of you probably heard both my and Whoopi's version of what you didn't see after I was thrown off the set," Pirro said on her Fox News show last night. "I'd like to close the book on this and move on, and I'd like you to do this as well."

"Some of you may not know that I've known Whoopi Goldberg for years and our relationship, up until this week, has always been friendly. Furthermore, I've been a guest on 'The View' many times before Thursdays appearance and was always treated with respect," Pirro continued.

"To you the viewer, I invite you to go online and watch the entire segment and make your own judgement about how I conducted myself and how I was treated. And to Whoopi, I accept that you and I have different versions of what happened on Thursday on both on and off the air and we have completely different takes on President Trump and the job he’s doing," she concluded. "So, let’s agree to disagree and put this episode to bed once and for all."

Only time will tell if Whoopi and the rest of "The View" panelists "agree to disagree" about what happened between the two TV stars after an explosive argument erupted on the air when Pirro accused Whoopi of having "Trump derangement syndrome."

"Say goodbye, bye! I'm done," Whoopi said at the end of the screaming match over Donald Trump. Pirro then exclaimed, "WOW," as the show went to commercial.

That's when things got even more heated.

Pirro told her side of the story on her pal Sean Hannity's show Thursday night. "I literally was thrown off the set. Whoopi Goldberg said, 'I'm done,' she walked away, but it didn't end there ... I got up and I left the stage, going downstairs, and I saw her. And I had to walk by her and I said, 'Whoopi, I fought for victims my whole life' -- something like that. And she started cursing at me."

Pirro stressed that Whoopi got in her face, saying the pissed off talk show host "was this close," gesturing toward her face. But Hannity pressed her to cut to the chase and get to the F-bombs Whoopi dropped.

"She said 'F you. F you.' And I said, did you just say, 'F you?’ Then she said, 'Get the F out of this building,'" Pirro said. "And I felt like I was less than dirt. I couldn’t believe that I went there to have a conversation. I got thrown off the set, thrown out of the building, and as I walked away, she's yelling at me, 'Get the F out of this building!'"

On Friday's episode of "The View," Whoopi admitted to saying "some few choice words I cannot repeat," but countered that Pirro "left a lot of pertinent stuff out" in her version of events.

Whoopi said that after their on-air clash, Pirro "called everybody at the table a name I cannot repeat on TV and said it in front of the audience."

"She came off and she could’ve just passed me, she needed to stop, she stopped and put a finger in my face and yelled, 'I’ve done more for victims than you ever will.' Then I said to her some few choice words I cannot repeat," Whoopi said. "Yes, I did say it. I did say it, but I did not spit on her. I did not imitate her. No one chased her out of here saying 'get out' but she did leave here cursing at the people who booked the show, she cursed at the guys who do the security for the show."

"The View" will be back on the air Monday, so we'll see if and how Whoopi responds.
