Whoopi Goldberg Not Enthused By Bill O'Reilly (VIDEO)

Whoopi Goldberg was not enthused by one of Bill O'Reilly's quips about her on Wednesday's "The View."

The Fox News host, whose new book "Keep It Pithy" was just released, stopped by the show to talk about Chris Christie's presidential prospects and Amanda Berry's escape from captivity. Barbara Walters welcomed him by noting that he looked "slim."

O'Reilly said that he is doing "the no gluten thing," like co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who follows a gluten-free diet. "Wheat bulks you up," he said. "I gotta stay lean and mean to deal with Whoopi, so I gotta be quick."

Goldberg gave him a cool stare. "Good-natured, dear, adorable Whoopi?" Walters asked. "What's he talking about?"

"I don't know," Goldberg answered.

Goldberg and O'Reilly infamously came to blows on "The View" in 2011. His comments about Muslims outraged Goldberg and co-host Joy Behar, who walked off set in anger. During one of O'Reilly's subsequent visits to "The View," Goldberg jokingly whipped out a seatbelt to fasten herself to her seat.
