    There's clearly no love lost between Alyssa Farah Griffin and Ana Navarro, but on Monday morning, Griffin finally went on the offensive after enduring weeks of shade from across the table.

    During a discussion about "toxic femininity" holding women back in the workplace (because of course that was the topic), Griffin told the panel that in the past, she's had negative experience with female co-workers. "I think that women have made a ton of progress, but we can also be each other's worst enemies," she said. "Some of the worst bosses I've had have been women, and sometimes colleagues in the workplace who were women."

    Griffin began to quote Madeleine Albright, but Navarro interrupted before she could finish. "That's what happens when you work with Kellyanne Conway," said Navarro, coffee mug in hand for extra emphasis.

    As the audience let out a noise that landed somewhere between a cheer and a boo, Griffin fired back. "Well, I mean, I can't really get a word in without you attacking me, so I wouldn't say this is a totally different environment of women supporting each other," said the ex-Trump administration official.

    After some positivity from guest co-host Juju Chang (Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, and Joy Behar were all out), Griffin attempted to win Whoopi Goldberg over to her side of the spat. "I have to say, I give Whoopi credit," she said. "You've been so supportive of all the women on the show, because you've accomplished so much, and we're coming up under you and just looking up to you."

    "Women support women more than we don't," concluded Griffin. "But I think it's worth acknowledging when we are hurting each other."
