ALYSSA Farah Griffin has told a reporter that she wants her seat at the table at The View.
This comes just days after her explosive fight with her co-host Sunny Hostin.
On Tuesday, Alyssa posed for a photo with BBC News journalist Suzanne Kianpour.
They were in Washington DC when Suzanne interviewed the host of The View.
“HELMET TO HEELS MOTIVATION MONDAY featuring @alyssafarah: ‘Take your seat at the table,'” captioned Suzanne post.
“We start our weeks with the mantras and jams that fuel our favorite inspirational women.”
The journalist continued, “Alyssa is one of the hosts of the show @theviewabc, created by the late Barbara Walters, and has spent her career working in the highest echelons of Republican power. She was personally attacked by Trump – for whom she worked – when she disagreed with him.
She shared that Alyssa told her, “Barbara Walters is obviously an inspiration to both of us — and I feel like we, as women, have had doors opened for us, either by women on TV in front of us or in foreign policy.” , government or national defence, have one.” We have a duty to use the platforms to stand up for what we believe in.”
Suzanne continued, “In the Helmet to Heels community, we love fashion and novelty… and the emphasis on female power.”
LIVID ON LIVE TV
Last week, Alyssa slammed Sunny for “shaming Barbara Walters’ legacy” after not letting the newcomer get a chance to speak.

The fight led to the show going commercial.
The women discussed Chris Christie getting into the presidential election and Alyssa supporting Mike Pence in the 2024 election.
Alyssa now says Pence played a big part in getting the Covid-19 vaccines approved.
Sunny was saying that she’s now getting back to her story and defending him and that some of the things Pence said were wrong.
“There were people who worked for this man, so I’m not going to do it personally, but they couldn’t say, ‘You should vote for this man because he did A, B, C and D,” Sunny said.
She went on to say what “terrified” her was that Alyssa was “unable to defend a man she worked for” but now supports him in the race.
“No no no. Why don’t you ask me a question?” conservative host Alyssa defended.
“She asked you a question,” Joy Behar interjected.
“You just accused me of something, so why don’t you let me answer? You’ll never vote for a Republican,” Alyssa said while Sunny kept her cool and continued talking.
“Sunny likes to do it with me in person,” Alyssa said while Sunny continued talking.
“Will you give me a chance to answer or…?”
Alyssa raised her hands in disbelief and looked at the audience while Sunny babbled on her points over and over again.
“RUINING BARBARA’S LEGACY”
Alyssa continued, “That’s not what this show is about. This is the legacy of Barbara Walters. Let a woman speak.”
The crowd clapped for Alyssa, but Sunny just kept talking, not letting Alyssa make her point.
“All together. Y’all know it’s Sunny Hostin’s View,” she concluded.
Sara Haines tried to speak up and diffuse the tension, but Alyssa drowned them out.
Joy and Alyssa started arguing while Sunny continued to talk calmly.
Whoopi Goldberg turned to the camera and said, “Why do I feel like I need to take a break now?”
Alyssa was heard imploring Whoopi to speak before it went into commercial.
“Because I can’t hear anyone say anything,” Whoopi explained.
Alyssa threw up her hands and snapped, “Jesus Christ. What a shame.”
“We need to figure out how to do this again,” Whoopi said calmly. “We’re going to take that break, come back and make it work. We’ll be right back.”
As the camera panned out, Alyssa could be seen raising her hand and talking while the other co-hosts remained silent.
Barbara died on December 30, 2022 at the age of 93 at her home in New York City.
She was the founder of The View and a TV news icon who broke the glass ceiling for women in journalism.
