Ana Navarro Breaks Silence On Abruptly Leaving Set Of ‘The…


Ana Navarro said that she and her ‘View’ co-hosts were ‘so happy’ to welcome VP Kamala Harris to the studio before Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro were forced to leave the set after testing positive for COVID-19.

The View’s broadcast on Thursday was “surreal,” according to Ana Navarro, 49. Following the dramatic broadcast scene that occurred just seconds before the ABC talk program was due to welcome Vice President Kamala Harris, 56, the talk show host appeared in a virtual chat with Anderson Cooper 360. On Friday, Sept. 24, she told Anderson Cooper, “It takes so much work to do an interview like this, and it’s something that we were pleased about.”

“We knew we’d have to ask some difficult questions. We were ecstatic to have the vice president appear on The View, but it quickly devolved into a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode. It was just surreal,” she continued, drawing parallels to Larry David’s oddball HBO sitcom.

“The View” guest host Ana Navarro breaks down the awkward moment she and her co-host learned they had tested positive for Covid-19 while on-air. She has since tested negative.

“This is in the middle of live TV,” says Navarro. “As you know, Anderson, the show must go on.”

Ana and Sunny Hostin, 52, were forced to leave set by their producer while live on TV after COVID-19 tests both came back positive despite their double-vaccination status. Notably, a producer then came out and told the audience that the two women had tested negative after being re-tested, implying that the first was a false positive (since, Ana has taken another rapid antigen test and PCR that both returned back negative). After the unexpected moment, Joy Behar was going to introduce the Vice President when she was told to take a break.

“Now, thanks to COVID, The View’s table is the size of an aircraft carrier. On the other side, joy is palpable. I don’t suppose she notices the uproar that the executive producer, Brian Teta, has told Sunny and me is going on,” Ana continued. “Of course, it’s an awkward situation. It’s perplexing. You’ve got a million thoughts racing through your mind… ‘What did you just say?’ we ask. ‘Did I hear you correctly?’ And this is happening in the middle of a live broadcast. She continued, “And, as you know, Anderson, the show must go on.” The interview with Kamala went on as planned, however it was done over Zoom from a different portion of the studio.

The hosts had “no interaction” with the Vice President prior to his scheduled presence, according to Ana. She explained, “We had no touch with her for the entire day, so they’re trying to figure out what’s the safest way to conduct this interview and how do we do it?” “And I have to say, her crew was great about it, and she ended up giving the interview by remote from that room…while we were locked up in our dressing rooms.”

During her brief discussion on the broadcast, Kamala mentioned Ana and Sunny’s COVID-19 test findings. “Sunny and Ana are strong ladies, and I know they’re fine,” the Vice-President continued, “but it really does speak to the fact that they’re vaccinated, and vaccines make all the difference because otherwise we would be concerned about hospitalization and worse.” COVID-19 infections can still happen even if you’ve been vaccinated, but they’re more likely to be asymptomatic or have a mild illness, according to the CDC.
