If there's one thing Lisa Ling has no interest in, it's going back to co-host The View on a full-time basis.

The 48-year-old was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! when she recalled the experience she had while on the popular talk show.

She discussed an unpleasant experience she had with Joy Behar, a longtime co-host of The View. The show is famous for its heated debates and exchanges.

Ling was in discussion with the ladies about Joe Biden calling Peter Doocy, a Fox News White House correspondent, a "stupid SOB." According to Ling, the ladies were saying he had apologized, so it was okay.

Ling, however, had a different opinion, and she ended up being accused of causing chaos on The View after trying to defend her position. Despite feeling she generally got along well with the women, Joy told her that she was talking too much during a commercial break.

Currently, the show features Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg, who is on suspension after her controversial comment about the Holocaust.

Goldberg tried to argue that the "Holocaust isn't about race," after which she got severe backlash and a suspension notice from ABC News President Kim Godwin.

Lisa Ling had acted as a co-anchor from 1999 to 2002 before going back as a guest-host this month. She rejoined the show as it celebrated its 25 years of being on air.

Ling is also promoting her new series, Take Out, which will be on HBO Max. She told Kimmel that although she was a guest host on the show for a week, she is happy she does not do it daily.

Recently, she was critical of the Biden administration after it withdrew the vaccine mandate for businesses. Ling said that it was shameful of them to equate vaccinations to testing because people who have been vaccinated can still spread COVID-19.

Ling was of the opinion that more should have been invested into better quality rapid testing.

Meanwhile, Goldberg is still suspended from The View despite issuing multiple apologies for her statements. She clarified that it was never her intention to hurt anyone and that she now knew better.
