Elisabeth Hasselbeck Says Goodbye to The View

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Elisabeth Hasselbeck has officially left The View.

Following yesterday's unexpected announcement that Hasselbeck is leaving the talk show for Fox & Friends, she made her final View appearance today, bidding farewell to fans and co-hosts.

After thanking the production team and viewers, Hasselbeck turned her teary-eyed attention to her fellow panelists.

To Whoopi Goldberg: "It is undeniable that you are one of the most talented artists on this planet, but... you are even more loving than you are talented. You are walking unconditional love and I have counted on that unconditional love numerous times.. I am blessed to call myself a friend of yours."

To Joy Behar: "Joy and I have spent the last 10 years sparring over politics, but you know I have the most insane amount of respect for you...  I even like when Joy has the ability to throw a one-liner in and make me laugh even when I don't want to."

To Sherri Shepherd: "I love you, Sherri... You're my sister in Christ, my friend for life."

To Barbara Walters: "I don't even know that there's a program out there that can offer the depth of knowledge, technique, the art of interview that you have offered to everyone at this table and especially me... I can't ask for a better leader and mentor, you are the best that there is."

Walters said there's no immediate plans to replace Hasselbeck, although names such as NeNe Leakes and Jenny McCarthy continue to make the rounds.
