Meghan McCain is growing increasingly wary that her gig on "The View" isn't as secure as it once was, according to a new report.
The show's resident conservative recently returned to work after maternity leave and picked up right where she left off, feuding with Joy Behar and even Whoopi Goldberg. During her absence, many wondered how the show would fare without her and her conservative stance. It turns out, the show did just fine — and that has the 36-year-old "shook."
"'The View' did better ratings with Meghan being gone. For years people claimed that viewers tuned in for her craziness, but the numbers showed us otherwise," a source told The Daily Mail. "The show actually broke a record during her maternity leave and now she realizes that she doesn't have the job security that she once did. All of that has her shook."
During Meghan's absence, conservative Ana Navarro often filled in, and many fans have argued the show should make the switch permanent.
Meghan's return to work hasn't been smooth sailing. Earlier in the week when she and Joy were going at it, the 78-year-old plainly told Meghan she didn't miss her.
"I did not miss you. Zero," Joy said. Meghan, the daughter of the late John McCain, called Joy "rude."
A few days later, Meghan angered Whoopi while they chatted with newly elected senator Raphael Warnock. Whoopi cut off Meghan during her line of questioning and cut to a commercial. Producers later said they had gone over their time limit in the segment. The source corroborated the explanation.
"Meghan could clearly see there was no more time left in the segment. She was trying to create a moment for herself in the show that would have gotten press in conservative media," the source said. "She loves getting press pickup from her segments on the show and she thought she could do that with Raphael Warnock."
