Elisabeth Hasselbeck is "Toast" at The View, Source Claims

by at . Comments

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is on her way out of The View.

Forget the show of support from Barbara Walters last week, an insider tells The New York Post that this blonde conservative will not return to the talk show once her contract is up.

“ABC is desperate to freshen the show," a source tells the newspaper. "Ratings are going soft, and research numbers on the stars’ likability are scaring network execs."

The newspaper adds that Joy Behar was forced to resign, although producers agreed to let her exit gracefully.

But once news leaked of Hasselbeck's upcoming dismissal, Walters was "spitting mad" and called it off. Still, her announcement will simply delay the inevitable.

Hasselbeck may be coaxed to leave before her deal is even up next year, the article alleges "because the ABC brass believes the show needs to be younged-up fast."

Among those under consideration to takeover? Brooke Shields, Christie Brinkley and Ali Wentworth. Expect a drawn-out testing process for each potential co-host.

If she really is leaving, will you miss Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View?

Elizabeth Hasselbeck does not sing to the Liberal Choir, and therefore is crudely demonized by Libs.. She does offer an opinion and "face" to the other 50% or more of Americans who do NOT claim a Liberal Political Slant.. But rather claim to.. A Conservative Political Belief System. One voice and one tone is not expressing a view.. There needs to be several points of view to create a vision. It is the very mix of views and politics, ages, race, and regionalism from across the American Landscape offers the best of America to America.

Good riddance, thought I was the only person that thought she was so one sided.
When she starts to talk I turn

Thank God. It is painful to watch this woman on TV. She is so filled with hate for anyone who isn't like her. Good riddens, honey. Go work for Star Jones!

Funny, Hasselbeck sounds like a Swedish name. It means "Hazel Creek".

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Quotes

Right now, with two kids, one 3 and one 5 months, a little walk for ice cream with the kids is perfectly romantic. When they are falling asleep in the stroller and [we can] just take in the city together.

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.
