Whoopi Invades Opie And Anthony Show
August 3, 2006 at 7:10 AM (PT)
The "O&A pests" attacked WHOOPI GOLDBERG's new morning show at WKTU/NEW YORK, and she took the battle right back to OPIE AND ANTHONY by dropping by unannounced to their XM SATELLITE RADIO show THURSDAY morning.
O&A's fans have been flooding WHOOPI's lines with prank calls since her MONDAY debut, and the boys have been airing clips from her show on the air. THURSDAY's "confrontation" was friendly, with WHOOPI saying: "I love you guys" and O&A and JIM NORTON welcoming her and voicing disappointment that they were losing a radio "enemy." "We respect people who come to us face to face," OPIE told WHOOPI, adding "you just took away all our fun."
"I expected it, and it was cool," WHOOPI told O&A, mocking the "pests" as "fleas." "It didn't get to me until I left the studio and there were a couple of guys around ... they freaked me out a little bit," she added, asking O&A to "let me establish the ladies (audience), please." "Thank you for showing the country that we're a bunch of pussies," OPIE laughed.
