Elisabeth Hasselbeck Announces Fox & Friends Departure, Cries A Lot

by at .

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is going to need a few minutes, people.

Can you talk amongst yourself for a little while?

The 38-year old announced via statement on Monday that she’s leaving her post as a Fox & Friends panelist in December, saying at the time:

“Oftentimes, the most difficult decisions are between two great things," said the former View co-host.

"Throughout my 14 years working in television, I have never experienced a more positive and thoughtful atmosphere than FOX News Channel."

The conservative television personality, who was also a castaway on Survivor back in the day, reiterated these points on air Tuesday.

"Like I said, I much preferred and am honored to have had the role of bringing you the news rather than being it," she said.

"I have a ton of respect for you all here and you at home [and] I want to share with you what's been on my heart.

"I am... taking a new position as CBO, Chief Breakfast Officer, at our house with the kids and that does mean that in about a month, I will be leaving my Fox News family."

Hasselbeck said that the time between now and her final show will be a "No Cry Zone," but she couldn't stop the tears from flowing upon confirming this very sad news.

In reference to her co-hosts, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, Hasselbeck shared:

"It's hard because of all of you. You all have made this a really hard decision. I have fallen head over heels with this place."

Hasselbeck is the mother of three kids (Grace, 10, Taylor, 8, Isaiah, 6) and the husband of a former NFL quarterback.

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.

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.
