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.
The network has apparently chosen not to renew the conservative blonde's contract because of her polarizing political views.
"The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing," an insider tells the tabloid. "People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth."
Hasselbeck joined the gab fest in November 2003 after guest-hosting the series following Lisa Ling's departure in 2002.
She has often been the only Republican voice amidst a sea of liberals and democrats, josting with guests and panelists on occasion.
What do you think of this story if it's valid? Will you miss Hasselbeck on The View?
