The former “View” co-host also touched on the pizza shop, Memories Pizza, that landed at the center of the firestorm after owner Crystal O’Connor told a local ABC affiliate her “proud Christian establishment” in Walkerton, Indiana, “would have to say no” to a gay couple asking for the restaurant to cater their wedding.
“Not even lesbians would do that,” O’Donnell joked about the notion gay people would cater their weddings with pizza. “No, we might have pot luck, we might have bring your own chilli but that’s only if financial situations are tough.”
O’Donnell spoke with gay rights activist Michelangelo Signorile, who suggested conservatives are trying to discriminate and then turn themselves into the victims: “We have to fight against that,” he said.
O’Donnell has been fairly quiet since abruptly bolting “The View” for the second time in February. Insiders at the show say they are months away from replacing her.
This week, an insider told TheWrap the show would love to have Monica Lewinsky as a guest co-host.
