Deirdre Imus appeared on "The View" Tuesday morning to discuss her new book, The Essential Green You!. While on the show, she revealed that she and her husband, radio host Don Imus, have named the cows on their famous ranch after female media celebrities.

"Ten years ago when we started the ranch, we named our various Texas longhorn cattle, and one was named Barabra Walters," she explained. "We named several. We have Mary Matalin, Andrea Mitchell, Judy Woodruff."

Whoopi spit her food out when Imus announced that the Barbara Walters cow now has a great-granddaughter that they've named Rosie.

"My husband named her!" Imus said.

"May I suggest, if my cow has another calf, she be named Whoopi?" Barbara asked.

Whoopi said she'd rather be a chicken.

"I've been an ass all my life," she said. "But Whoopi as a chicken is better."
