Elisabeth Hasselbeck danced her way out of this one.

Having needlessly bashed Erin Andrews for dressing provocatively on Dancing With the Stars, criticizing her outfits on a dance competition show in which contestants of both genders all dress scantily, Elisabeth felt terrible.

On Tuesday, Hasselbeck implied that Erin should tone it down and said her peephole stalker could've waited a few months to see the goods with less prison time.

Pretty uncool.

Andrews understandably called the commentary "a slap in the face," and Hasselbeck apologized, saying that her young daughter advised her to contact Andrews.

"I wanted to offer that publicly too," Hasselbeck said, and you have to give her credit for that at least, not to mention the sincerity. Here it is:

Erin Andrews‘s waltz on Monday's Dancing with the Stars was one of her best efforts to date, according to the judges and voters. Just not Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

The View host criticized Erin - who has endured two separate stalking incidents in the past year - for "dressing inappropriately" on the ABC reality competition.

“In light of what happened and as a legal [matter] - and as inexcusable as it was for that horrific guy to go in and peep on her in her hotel,” Hasselbeck said.

“I mean, in some way if I’m him, I’m like, ‘Man! I just could’ve waited 12 weeks and seen this - a little bit less - without the prison time!’”

That's a bad joke at best, and a very rude insult at worst.

In March, Michael David Barrett was sentenced to federal prison for filming Erin Andrews nude through a hotel peephole and posting a video of her online.

In April, after her Dancing with the Stars debut, Andrews received death threats. Elisabeth apparently thinks she should lock herself at home as a result?

Erin called these remarks “a slap in the face to victims of stalking and sexual predators. As a mother and a woman, I’m disappointed she went there.”

Don't even get Maksim Chmerkovskiy started, either. The Dancing With the Stars pro, who's partnered with Erin this season, was far from thrilled.

Chmerkovskiy quickly fired back: "I'm the one designing [Andrews'] dresses for the show, so I'll just assume that [Hasselbeck] is jealous... and stupid."

Pro Louis Van Amstel also defended Andrews, Twittering to Hasselbeck: "Why did u have to throw @erinandrewsespn under the bus this morning?"

"Shame on [you] ... Leave her alone. Aren't u all working for the same network ABC/ESPN???? U should have each other's back, not trashtalk Erin."

Fellow contestant Evan Lysacek also chimed in on the topic: "So disappointed that anyone would attack [her] after all she's been through."

Andrews told Access Hollywood she "cried" after hearing the remarks: "People can have opinions about the show, but my biggest complaint is she's a woman and a mother and it was a mockery of something serious I've lived through."

A little silly to single out Erin on a show where all the stars - men and women - dress and dance suggestively, don't you think? Whose side are you on?

In never-thought-you'd-see-the-day news, staunch conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck went off on The View yesterday, railing against none other than Sarah Palin.

Why? Because Palin, for whom she campaigned during the '08 election, released an ad that put 20 Democratic members of Congress literally in the crosshairs.

Palin's call to kill Democrats grass roots action came in response to the Dems' big f*%king deal overhaul of the health care system, which she's very opposed to.

The former Alaska Governor's Facebook page features her political action committee's ad targeting the 20 Democratic incumbents, with a SarahPac map marking districts where Democrats voted "yes" for health care reform with guns.

Elisabeth would like a mulligan on this campaign rally.

Hasselbeck also opposes health reform, but she's actually far more upset about how people on her own side of the political spectrum are handling themselves.

"I think the way some Republicans are handling this is nothing more than despicable," she said in response to Palin's tasteless ad. "It's disappointing to see this coming from the Party, and I would hope that leaders like Sarah Palin would end this."

No word if Sarah also plugged Bristol Palin on there somehow.

Liberal-leaning co-host Joy Behar got Elisabeth going by saying the map looked "like an Al Qaeda Christmas card." We were surprised to watch Elisabeth concur.

She isn't the most popular woman on the planet, but Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be welcomed back to The View with open arms.

The blonde, opinionated conservative will return to her seat - alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters - on October 19, a date that can't come fast enough considering the guest hosts that have occupied her spot since Hasselbeck left for maternity leave.

Such reality TV stalwarts as  Heidi Montag, Kate Gosselin and Khloe Kardashian have joined the all-girl gabfest at various points this summer, each more nauseating than the last.

Hasselbeck gave birth to her third child, Isaiah Timothy in August. Her return to The View will mean big money for at least one former governor from Alaska.

There's little doubt Elisabeth will pimp out Sarah Palin's ridiculously titled upcoming book, Going Rogue: An American Life. Hard.

"Elisabeth and Isaiah are doing great and we're excited about the addition of another baby boy into our family," Tim Hasselbeck said on the website.

Weighing in at 7 lbs., 7 oz., Isaiah, whose due date was actually Tuesday, joins siblings Grace Elisabeth, 4, and Taylor Thomas, 21 months, at home.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck announced the pregnancy on-air in January.

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.

The View weighed in this morning on the brewing, hilarious feud between Ashley Judd and Sarah Palin.

After showing their audience the video of Judd calling out Palin for her pro-wolf killing initiatives, the ladies discussed whether or not the actress had a legitimate beef with the former Vice Presidential candidate.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck seemed sympathetic to the cause at first... only to then question how Judd can take issue with the slaughter of wolves, considering how the pro-choice star is clearly fine with the killing of over 200,000 babies each year via abortion.

This might seem like a non-sequitor to some; but Hasselbeck apparently believes that anyone on the side of Roe vs. Wade can't possibly care about the sanctity of any life.

Watch the clip below:

On Monday, Hasselbeck said Michael Phelps' marijuna use left open the issue of whether or not he also used steroids. She's had quite the week.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is someone that campaigned vehemently on behalf of Sarah Palin.

Therefore, her opinion has been tainted forever.

Michael Phelps at the ESPYs

Still, we can't help but comment on the condemnation this talk show host laid at the feet of Olympic champion Michael Phelps this morning on The View.

In response to the shocking news that a 23-year old smokes pot, Hasselbeck said Phelps is "being paid millions to be an example [to youth]," actually adding that if he's willing to "take a drug that could impede his performance, would he be open to taking a drug that would enhance his performance?"

It's challenging to keep track of all that's misguided about that question, but we'll try:

  • Phelps is not being paid millions of dollars to be an example to anyone; he's being paid millions of dollars to sell products. Is Hasselbeck implying that Phelps' status as a role model would be different if he weren't a Nike pitchman?
  • Marijuana has never been proven to be any more dangerous than alcohol. Would Hasselbeck have had anything to say if Phelps were doing a keg stand? Or smoking a cigarette? If the issue is legality, what if he had received a speeding ticket? (Racecar driver Danica Patrick has received multiple citations for speeding; where is Hasselbeck's outrage over that?)
  • The actions of Phelps are not impeding any performance; he's gone on record, numerous times, as saying he's taking months off from training. The 2012 Olympics? They're in 2012!
  • Equating marijuana to steroids is like equating beer to Viagra. One impedes a performance, the other enhances it. They also have nothing to do with one another.

Phelps has apologized for his behavior, which was the first blip on what's been a stellar, patriotic career in the spotlight.

Do you think he deserves to have his integrity questioned by Hasselbeck? Let us know if you think her comments were...

America's favorite hot conservative pundit, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, is pregnant with her third child, she is set to announce Thursday morning on The View.

The 31-year-old Elisabeth and her husband, Tim Hasselbeck, 30, are already the proud parents of 3-year-old daughter Grace, and son Taylor Thomas, who just celebrated his first birthday November 9. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Tim Hasselbeck, Elisabeth Hasselbeck

Tim Hasselbeck is an ESPN football analyst and former professional quarterback for the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles, and Buffalo Bills.

His only in-game action since 2003 consisted of two kneel-downs, which the NFL counts statistically as rushing attempts. Therefore, his career with the Giants totaled -3 rushing yards. On September 1, 2007, he was released by New York.

He never made it as a pro QB, but at least he gets to line up under center with his favorite receiver / tight end at home. If you know what we mean!

What would this traditional American holiday be without family, food, football and reflection upon the things we appreciate the most in life - in our case, some of the biggest turkeys we've had the privilege of covering this year.

With that said, we present our Top 10 Turkeys of 2008 ...

10. John Mayer. A douchebag 364 days a year. Honorary poultry today.

9. Britney Spears. Last year's top turkey falls to #9 by virtue of calming the hell down from February on. The first month of 2008 alone, though? Wow.

8. Miley Cyrus. Anyone who goes topless for Vanity Fair at age 15 and/or celebrates their birthday four months in advance automatically makes the list.

7. Courtenay Semel. She's far from the first E-list celebrity go to great lengths for publicity. Pretending to be a lesbian sets the bar pretty low, though.

6. Adrienne Bailon. Being dumb enough to take nude pics and let them get stolen is one thing. Staging the entire stunt with your loser publicist? Pathetic.

A collection of some of the year's biggest turkeys.

5. Ashlee Simpson. The zenith of uselessness to begin with, Jessica's l'il sis went and named her kid Bronx Mowgli. Just a "fowl" move all around.

4. (Tie) Sarah Palin, for this heartwarming Thanksgiving video, and her #1 fan Elisabeth Hasselbeck, 'cause no turkey gets ruffles feathers quite like her.

3. Alex Rodriguez. Months without a clutch hit. Railing strippers. Divorcing Cynthia Rodriguez. Referring to Madonna his "f*%king soulmate, dude." Gobble, gobble.

2. Eliot Spitzer. The Governor of New York State apparently thought it was worth his job and marriage to give call girl Ashley Dupre a good "stuffing." Har har.

1. Spencer Pratt. The villain you love to hate from The Hills capped off a hilarious year by eloping with Heidi Montag. Say what you will about him, Spencer plays the celebrity gossip game to perfection, 24/7/365. And we love him for it.

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.
