The insider continued: "It seemed like the crew wanted Whoopi to get a standing ovation to make her feel like she's the star of the show."

When asked if the EGOT winner was given "special treatment," the source explained, "she got touch ups just as much as the other co-hosts," when they went to commercial break. "The only difference is that the camera is on her first after returning from commercials since she's the moderator. "

"She also carried herself as if she had authority to talk over the other co-hosts and interrupt them," they pointed out.

Speaking over her cohosts is part of her position that Goldberg takes full advantage of, often shutting down her fellow television personalities' commentary mid-sentence because she is either bored by the debate or disagrees with the topic at hand.
