Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Leaving The View for Fox & Friends!

by at . Comments

In a decision both expected and yet surprising for its immediacy, Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving The View... effective tomorrow!

According to The New York Post, the conservative host will then take a brief hiatus and premiere as a co-anchor on Fox & friends this September.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View

“Elisabeth’s warm and engaging personality made her a star on The View,” Fox News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes told the newspaper. “She has proven to be an excellent conversationalist and I am certain she will make a great addition to our already successful morning franchise.”

Hasselbeck will join Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmead on the Fox morning program, while Gretchen Carlson will shift move to daytime.

Said Barbara Walters in a statement:

“When Elisabeth survived Survivor we wanted to make sure she would stay afloat. We have had 10 wonderful years with her and she will now be swimming in new waters. We will miss her and wish her everything good.”

Joy Behar, meanwhile, will also exit The View this summer. Possible replacements include Brooke Shields, NeNe Leakes and Jenny McCarthy.

Warm and engaging. NOT.

If I regularly watch "The View", then I would probably miss Elisabeth on that show too. She and Sherri Shepherd are close friends, aren't they?

I feel certain that Liz's IQ will not drop now that she has departed from the worst gathering of talk show individuals. Whoopie (I'm racist as hell) Goldtooth. Then there was Joy "This little piggie went to market" who walks like she hasn't had a bowel movement since the 80's. Barbwire "Anybody" got a Walker who talks endlessly and doesn't say a
damn thing. Liz has class and her being around those pro socialist just was not a blend. Anyway they could always fill that chair with Rachel McButch- that would be right up their alley don't'cha think? I'm so belly full about hearing how the white male is holding everyone down especially when it's the white conservative male that's keeping it afloat? In that town their is no shortage of paper tigers. Its about time for Obama to make another apperance and you can bet the SLOBBER will flow! What a screwed up mess you Democrats have created!

@ Huge Elizabeth Fan!!!!

Since it's pretty safe to assume that you're an obvious fiscal conservative so can you do us all a favor and shut the fuck up you obnoxious fat ass middle aged menopausal windbag! Nobody wants to hear how great you think that nonsensical malcontent was. It just makes you look even dumber for buying into the bullshit she actually believed and said outloud!

I'm thinking that you... You unemployed, back rent due ass should STFU! Take your Free Government cheese eating ass along with your HOT CHECKS you distribute to the back of the line with those 3 illegitimate kids and see if you can get some handout! Liz has character and I don't need to watch the view to know it. Yes- conservatives are the only stable ones to be found. It's always been that way. Its a shame you watch that RAG for current affairs just like its an embarrassment for YOU that you wasted 2 votes for Obama. You idiot! All that hope and change that you and whoopsie wished for. You probably look just like her! So sit on the porch with sweat dripping down your face and take a good look at yourself. Liz is not a loser- YOU ARE!

At least she speaks correctly

I always thought that Elizabeth Hasselbeck was one of those pretty faces and seemed like a pleasant cordial person to be around....that is until she opened her mouth to speak! She was the single most divisive, narrow-minded blatantly arrogant, ignorant person that was ever allowed to be on national television not to mention surrounded by a group of liberals! It's weird how she was even chosen to be on the view. But I've enjoyed her on the days that she didn't speak! Sad to see she's going to a group of equally narrow-minded idiots! She'll never really learn.

Thank goodness she is leaving the house of liberals. Maybe she will now get the real news. Loath all those has been women.

Wonderful!! She will be appreciated at FOX, The #1 Cable News channel. Anything would be better than having to look at Joy Behar daily.
Congrats Elizabeth, you will be great at FOX.

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.
