Goldberg appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on Thursday, where a fan called in to ask what the biggest misconception viewers have about 35-year-old McCain and 77-year-old Behar's relationship. McCain and Behar sometimes clash on-camera due to their differing opinions on political topics, leading some to speculate that they may not get along off-camera as well.

McCain's time on the ABC talk show has been somewhat contentious since she joined the panel in October 2017 as the lone conservative voice. But she wants people to know she is more than her politics. 

"I think a lot of 'The View' viewers think that I’m just this, like, ice queen, steel (expletive), that’s, like, shooting guns and drinking and being crazy," she said. "I have a very personal side, and I have a warm side and I think that the show doesn’t always do a good job showing everyone’s 360 degrees and that’s just the nature."

Her hope? "I just wish people would give us all a break. … That’s also a standard our show is held to that other shows are not," she said. 

Despite her beliefs, McCain isn't asking for any pity. She joked, "Don’t feel bad for me. I mean, I’ve got a cool job, too. It’s not so bad."
