“The View” co-hosts reacted on Tuesday to businesswoman Barbara Corcoran crying for the first time in 25 years while competing on “Dancing With the Stars.” Watch the video below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Corcoran was the first star eliminated from the reality competition show Monday night. Prior to getting voted off, the “Shark Tank” star broke down during rehearsals and admitted the process was bringing back memories of being bullied as a child. “I don’t want anybody to laugh at me,” the multi-millionaire tearfully told the camera.

Discussing the incident in a “Hot Topics” segment, Sara Haines noted, “That show breaks everyone. Everyone cries.” Joy Behar added, “That kind of pain never goes away. When you’re [bullied] as a child. You’re made fun of, you feel insecure and then you’re a grown-up and there it is.” Whoopi Goldberg offered, “It’s like the word stupid. No matter how old you are, when someone says it, it just gets you.”

Meanwhile, Sunny Hostin found it “remarkable” to see a successful career woman like Corcoran who normally “looks so confident” breaking down in tears on a reality show. “That was so shocking to me,” the co-host said. Haines then revealed that she also experienced bullying as a child, but noted, “In some ways I credit that with building my character.” She explained that people who have it too easy early in life “don’t turn out with the depth and layers and compassion as people who’ve been tested. Those are some of the best people you know, the people who’ve been challenged.”

As Gossip Cop also reported, Corcoran appeared on Tuesday’s “Good Morning America” to discuss her elimination from “Dancing With The Stars” and admitted, “It was horrific being judged by everybody, really. I thought I was fabulous, nobody agreed with me.” Watch “The View” discuss the businesswoman’s breakdown in the video below.
