Elisabeth Hasselbeck Says Nice Things About Rosie

by at .

Maybe Elisabeth Hasselbeck isn't the Devil. It's a concept worth contemplating, at least.

For all the venom spewed the way of this conservative talk show host, she's never publicly bashed Rosie O'Donnell. In fact, she's always treated her very fairly in any interview. For example:

"With Rosie, the conversation is always fun, real and true," Hasselbeck told People magazine at Friday's Daytime Emmys gifting lounge in Hollywood. "I think this year was really special, indeed. The show is so much about chemistry and great conversation. We certainly had that this year. It's been a really fantastic year."

Not for critics of Hasselbeck, though. She often seems more hated in the celebrity gossip world than Paris Hilton and Spencer Pratt put together.

As for O'Donnell, she's appearing as a special guest on Cyndi Lauper's True Colors tour, and played drums for the singer at Sunday night's gig in Columbia, Md. Afterwards, she tossed her sticks into the crowd like Tommy Lee.

Earlier in the evening, she gave the crowd her own take on her View experience.

"I got to tell you, I've been hanging around with those heteros for a full year and it's not fun," she said. "Turn around one minute and they'll stab you in the back with a high heel. They will."

Wait... what?!? For a supposedly liberal, open-minded person, is there a reason Rosie pointed to the sexual orientation of her former co-workers? O'Donnell is often more hypocritical than Pete Doherty would be giving anti-drug advice.

On her well-publicized feud with Donald Trump, Rosie said: "We have a difference of opinion, Donald and I. He likes his women thin and silent. I like large and loud. Every time I saw Trump on one of those shows saying I was fat and unappealing, I'm like, 'Pass the Doritos.'"

She also sounded off on Roe v. Wade, quipping: "I don't want anyone to have control over my body besides me and Angelina Jolie." Then, to reassure her partner of 10 years, who was at home, she added: "Just a little joke, Kelli. She's out sick. She'll never hear it. Don't you YouTube it, or it'll be two more years of counseling."
