It started out like a typical episode of The View on Wednesday: co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Joy Behar ribbed their guests with tough – but playful – questions. But backstage after the show, a major drama played out.
When Michaele Salahi and her Real Housewives of D.C. castmates – Mary Schmidt Amons, Lynda Erkiletian, Catherine Ommanney and Stacie Scott Turner – appeared on the ABC talk show, the newly-minted reality star was rattled after she said Whoopi Goldberg, who was offstage for the segment, walked on the set, touched her arm and tried to refocus her on the topic at hand: her alleged crashing of the White House state dinner last November.
Though the encounter occupied no more than several seconds of airtime, offstage, an ugly scene reportedly happened when Salahi and her husband Tareq complained to producers about what she tells PEOPLE was a "humiliating and torturous" experience at the hands of Goldberg – and her View co-hosts.

Just call it Snookigate.
He may have told Joy Behar and all her View co-hosts Thursday that he'd never heard of Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi – but President Obama has, in fact, used the buxom brunette as a punchline before.
Recall in May, at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner in D.C., when he made a crack at the expense of the rather tan House minority leader, John Boehner. While talking about his health care bill, President Obama joked about a tanning tax, and said, "the following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill: Snooki, JWOWW, The Situation and House minority leader John Boehner."

Between fielding questions about the economy, Afghanistan, and racial tensions in the U.S., President Barack Obama got down to the important stuff on The View Thursday: the alleged rants of Mel Gibson, the jail term of Lindsay Lohan and Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi – and the burning question of should she run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.
Quizzed by Joy Behar in a "lightening" round, Obama was asked if he knew if Lohan is in jail. "I actually know that, yes," the President responded.
But Snooki stumped him. "Should Snooki run as mayor of Wasilla?" Behar asked. Obama, laughing, responded, "I gotta admit, I don't know who Snooki is."

During "A Day of Hot Topics" on The View Monday, Barbara Walters had one of her own to discuss – her upcoming heart surgery.
"Later this week, I'm going to have surgery to replace one faulty heart valve," Walters said, opening the show with news, which she had only revealed to her cohosts that morning.
"You kept it secret very well, Barbara," Joy Behar said, and Walters explained, "I thought it best not to talk about it too far in advance."
Walters, who added "you know how healthy I have been – never missed a day's work, said that she has "known of this condition for a while now," and she and her doctors agreed, "Since the summer is coming up, I can take a nice vacation." Recovery can be anywhere from a month to three months, she said.

She has described her recent troubles and being placed on psychiatric hold as "a perfect storm," and now Mischa Barton is offering further details of her July hospitalization to the women of ABC's The View. In an appearance due to air Friday, she blames the problem on pain associated with wisdom-tooth surgery.
Calling her hospitalization "silly," despite being "completely overwhelmed" by her situation, the former O.C. actress, 23, trying to deflect attention away from the subject, says on the program, "I mean, really, it was blown out of proportion, so it's kind of silly now to be talking about it because I'm so fine now, but it was really just a bad time for me," ABC News reports.

Rachael Ray has taken the crown traditionally worn by Ellen DeGeneres: the TV chef won the Emmy for best talk show, an honor that for the three previous years has gone to DeGeneres.
"I'm just thankful to have a job in the recession and be working," Ray said after her win at Sunday's 36th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, held at downtown Los Angeles's historic Orpheum Theater and aired on the CW network.
On the red carpet before her victory, Ray told PEOPLE that she lacked an acceptance speech. "You know, I'm so bad at memorization and our show is completely unscripted, so I'm just going to go up," she said, "and if something nice happens like that then we'll just go with our gut."

Embattled reality-TV mom Kate Gosselin will mix it up with the ladies of ABC's The View as a guest host on Sept. 14 and 15, PEOPLE has learned.
The star of TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 will be filling in for Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who will still be on maternity leave when The View returns from its summer-rerun schedule on Sept. 8.
Gosselin, 34, whose separation from husband Jon has dominated the headlines throughout the summer, will no doubt help the talk show hit the ground running in the ratings as it begins its 13th season.
