by at . Comments

The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck usually sparks controversy with her conservative opinions, or by condemning Michael Phelps, baby killers, etc.

Now the 32-year-old lightning rod is branching out.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Tim Hasselbeck

Self-published author Susan Hassett of Falmouth, Mass., states in a federal lawsuit filed in Boston that the TV blabbermouth infringed on her copyright by publishing her book on Celiac Disease, The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide.

Publicists for ABC and Hasselbeck's publisher, Hachette Book Group, could not be reached for comment by the Boston Herald, which reported the story.

Hasselbeck, who is pregnant with her third child, suffers from Celiac Disease, which damages one's small intestine and interferes with nutrient absorption.

The talk show host, who's been married to former football star Tim Hasselbeck for years, first learned she had the disorder after appearing on Survivor.

As a result, she cannot cannot eat gluten (found in wheat, rye and barley).

Whether Elisabeth Hasselbeck must now eat a large settlement of money after stealing an idea for her book? That is likely for a judge to decide.

has anyone independently confirmed that both hasset and hasselbeck actually misspelled "aisles" as "isles" in their books. or is hassett's lawyer just a bad speller (and a bad copier)?

Hasselbeck is a thief; how does she explain misspelling (a)isle in the same section? "Shop the outer isles of the store" ?

Elisabeth Hasselbeck [on the spark in her marriage]

Body image has nothing to do with scale numbers, it's how you feel inside. This is the first time I've felt free from that, because I am working out in a way where I feel so strong that there's no room for those doubts.
