The View's Sunny Hostin Says Megyn Kelly Has Changed Since They First Met

The View‘s Sunny Hostin and Megyn Kelly used to work together at Fox News many years ago…and now Sunny is opening up about how much she has changed.

“She’s changed a bit from the person that I knew,” Sunny wrote in her memoir “I Am These Truths” (via People). She added that they had “a friendly relationship” and they “don’t anymore.”

“I was shocked that she morphed into this, you know, ‘Santa Claus ain’t black, and there’s no Black Jesus,’ this right winger. Because that is not the Megyn that I met, and that is not the Megyn that I knew. I don’t know that that is the real Megyn, the blackface Megyn,” Sunny said, adding she has been “really tone deaf for this time in our history — for any time in our history.”

The View's Sunny Hostin Reacts To Racist Comments Allegedly Said By ABC News Executive

Sunny Hostin is opening up about the racist comments made by ABC executive Barbara Fedida.

The View newscaster revealed that she was hurt by the comments during an episode of the daytime program this week.

“It was a tough weekend for me and I was really disappointed and saddened and hurt when I learned about the racist comments that were made allegedly about me, my colleagues and my dear friends,” Sunny shared.

She went on, “Because if true, to reference Robin Roberts, who is one of the most respected and beloved journalists in our country, as picking cotton. To reference me, someone who’s been very open about having grown up in public housing, as being low rent, to reference Kendis Gibson, who was my office mate at ABC and now is an MSNBC anchor, to say that he isn’t worth paying as much as ABC would pay for toilet paper. The fact that Mara Schiavocampo, who is a friend and a former colleague at ABC, the fact that she has an NDA in place and can’t talk about her experiences at ABC tells me that systemic racism touches everything and everyone in our society, regardless of social stature.”

Barbara has since been placed on administrative leave.

“There are deeply disturbing allegations in this story that we need to investigate, and we have placed Barbara Fedida on administrative leave while we conduct a thorough and complete investigation,” ABC News shared in a statement. “These allegations do not represent the values and culture of ABC News, where we strive to make everyone feel respected in a thriving, diverse and inclusive workplace.”

After the article from Huffington Post was shared, Sunny did mention that most of her colleagues on the show reached out to her for support.

“I felt very loved and supported by my colleagues. I felt supported by all of you. I know Meghan [McCain] and I had at least an hour conversation this weekend. Whoopi, you were so supportive. Joy, you were so supportive. My executive producers on the show were so supportive. And I thank you all for that,” she shared.

Sunny added, “But again, this has got to stop, and I just look forward to changes, if all of this is true here at ABC and just in our country.”

“We know that Whoopi had pneumonia, and was not in a good place,” Sunny added. “So, she just wants to get checked out and make sure that it’s smart for her to be here every day.”
