THE View fans are in shock as a major star was snubbed by Whoopi Goldberg and her co-hosts on live TV.
Whoopi, 66, and the rest of the panel at The View are enjoying a week filming at a Bahamas resort.
The episode kicked off with the show’s announcer sharing a list of topics the the co-hosts would be tackling, and also revealed that “one woman empire” Tyra Banks was set to appear.
The announcer told viewers that Tyra, 48, was going to be “showing off supermodel secrets to slay in your vakay photos.”
Egter, as the episode moved forward and the clock winded down, many fans noted that the iconic model was not going to appear at all.
One confused person on Twitter said: “I thought Tyra Banks was supposed to be on The View today…”

“No Tyra Banks today?” another wondered as one suggested: “I guess Tyra Banks missed her flight to the Bahamas…”
Another viewer chimed in: “Wag, did Tyra missed the show?”
Before the episode wrapped up, Whoopi took a moment to explain Tyra’s absense.
“Tyra Banks was scheduled to be here today but we hope to catch up with her soon,” Whoopi said, not revealing a reason behind the businesswoman’s no-show.
Mees gelees in TV
The daytime talk show’s week in the Bahamas has gotten off to a rocky start as even Whoopi seems to be flustered by it all.
At the start of the episode, Whoopi began: “Our trip to celebrate… uh… The View’s 25th season- we came here to the Baha Mar… um…”
“Resort,” Whoopi echoed before laughing and adding, “Paradise! There’s so many words but I can’t think of them all…”
Egter, fans have not been too happy with the ladies and have accused them of flaunting their wealth.
Onlangs, the hosts were seen on social media living it up at the beach, relaxing in shaded lounge chairs, enjoying decadent drinks, and tasting delicious foods.
“Those who are struggling to put food on their tables and gas in their cars can see a vacation spot first hand on TV,” one angry fan raged at the time.
Intussen, Oscar winner Whoopi has also been feeling the heat lately and fans have been petitioning to have her fired from the show,
All this comes after various comments and on-air blunders, including her “rassisties” remarks about the Holocaust during the January 31 episode.
A petition has circulated on Change.org, insisting that Whoopi be let go of her hosting duties for her “repulsive verbiage and actions.”
It currently has over 40,000 signatures.
