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 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."

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is standing up for Gwyneth Paltrow.

By coming down hard on gluten.

The View co-hosts got into a debate this morning over Paltrow's upcoming book, "It's All Good," in which the actress offers up a slew of carb-free and gluten-free recipes.

"I do believe that there is a growing number of people with gluten intolerance, not just celiac disease, like myself," said Hasslebeck. "I do think it causes inflammation in the body, whether you are celiac or gluten intolerant or not."

Sorry, Brooke Shields.

You may need to keep your forthcoming opinions to yourself.

With the Internet seeming to confirm that Elisabeth Hasselbeck was leaving The View and Shields was taking over for the ousted panelist, Barbara Walters put an end to that chatter this morning on the ABC talk show.

“We love Elisabeth,” she said. “We value and appreciate her point of view. It helps give the show perspective. We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave this show.”

Joy Behar, however, is definitely on the way out this summer, a decision arrived at by the comedian herself and which Walters described on air as "bittersweet."

The View from ABC will look very different this fall.

A day after Joy Behar announced she is leaving the talk show, sources confirm that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is also on her way out. But for different, non-voluntary reasons.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck of The View had some harsh words for Chris Brown's vulgar Twitter rant against Jenny Johnson, likening his comments to "verbal rape."

"I think it's disgusting, first of all," she said. "But also, it seems like verbal rape to me."

"And I think at some point there's gotta be a point where Twitter should ban anyone who writes anything forever on there and you should identify yourself."

Co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg, while acknowledging that Brown's comments were extreme, emphasized that Jenny Johnson was also to blame.

Rielle Hunter was eviscerated on The View yesterday as the gabfest panel, in particular Whoopi Goldberg, went nuclear on John Edwards' mistress.

"In your book, you trash a dead lady," Goldberg stated, referring to Rielle Hunter's new tell-all book, in which she bashes Elizabeth Edwards often.

"That was kind of crappy."

Regarding What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter and Me, the author responded, "I wrote to tell the truth. I was truthful about their dynamic."

In the interview, Hunter acknowledged that despite recent photos of the happy family on a North Carolina beach, she broke up with John Edwards.

Asked if the split was caused by her memoir, Rielle dodged. "I don't want to hide any more," she said. "It's hard under media scrutiny, it takes a toll."

The mother of Edwards' love child spent a good part of the interview defending herself. "I'm not a mistress, I'm a mom," Rielle Hunter insisted.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck wasn't buying it: "Truth be told, you were a mistress."

"Do you like it when he's rough?"

With these words, and accompanying visuals, Barbara Walters made Elisabeth Hasselbeck crack up, viewers scratch their heads and Whoopi Goldberg's "eyes bleed."

The 82-year-old was yammering about sex this morning The View, inspired by the erotic novel series 50 Shades of Grey, in which a 20-something girl starts a relationship with an attractive, wealthy man who's into bondage and S&M.

Suffice to say, it was an awkward:

Hasselbeck, a married mother of three, sort of dodged the question by saying she's on a break right now ... but for Whoopi and others, the damage was done.

Bill Maher talked to David Letterman about his fight with Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View, and needless to say, didn't seem eager to apologize and put this to bed.

On the contrary, the outspoken late night comedian seemed more amused than anything that Hasselbeck ambushed him about a joke he once made about her.

"You kind of walked into a deal there, huh?" Letterman said. Maher's response? Diss her and make a reference to former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, obviously ...

"I was abused. I felt like a teenage boy at Penn State," quipped Maher, never one to pass on an un-PC zinger. "It's funny, I am never in the role of the victim... It was like, thank you, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, for making me look good!

"She had some bug up her ass," he added, but then softened his tone. "Look, I'm only kidding. I like her a lot. We have this relationship on TV where we hate each other."

Watch the aforementioned exchange on The View after the jump:
