We Knew It! Elisabeth Hasselbeck Is Leaving “The View”

We just knew that Elisabeth wasn’t going to be hanging around for long. According to TMZ, Hasselbeck, the only conservative on the panel is leaving the hit ABC show, “The View” along Joy Behar.

And it doesn’t seem like it’s rumor at all. Fox News recently released a statement saying Hasselbeck will replace Gretchen Carlson on “Fox & Friends.” Elisabeth said in her own statement through the network that she’s been a fan of “Fox & Friends” for a long time and is excited to be joining the team in September.

According to ABC, her last day will be Wednesday– as in tomorrow.

Barbara Walters, who announced earlier that she plans to retire next year, sent Elisabeth off with her well wishes.  “We have had 10 wonderful years with her and she will now be swimming in new waters. We will miss her and wish her everything good.”

Honestly, this sounds like a good move for Hasselbeck. While I know they were trying to add a balance to the left-leaning liberals on the panel, there were several times when she seemed uncomfortably out of place. I’m sure she’ll fare well over at Fox.

What do you think about Elisabeth’s departure? Do you think “Fox & Friends” will be a better fit for her?

    I’m glad cause she’s clearly racist.. Her over the top republican behind will be very happy on the FAUX News channel, where she can freely speww the venom and crap that comes out of her hateful mouth. She thinks people are fooled because she smiles a lot.. We are not.

    Thank goodness….Elisabeth will not be missed. Plus how the hell did whom even named her get that spelling of Elizabeth? Isn’t her name Elisa…..beth? not to be confused with Elizabeth. On to the beginning of her end on TV ….FOX won’t last.

    Gosh, nobody likes a girl with a different opinion? I love her and am excited to see her on F&F. I like Gretchen but think this will be a better fit. The View is HORRIBLE with their condescending yentas spouting off nonsense all the time.

      Nothing wrong with a difference of opinion, but she blindly endorses all things republican even when their legislation (their current anti-abortion bill is a perfect example) makes no sense. It’s annoying to say the least.

    FINALLY…LEAVE!!! I knew it was going to happen, eh was horrible!! Finally, now I can watch The View again. I stopped watching the show, sick & tired of EH, btw karma is a b! LOL

    She will fit right in. She can be free to completely be herself now. Like most republicans, she seems to have a very rigid and narrow viewpoint and likes to bash Obama for everything he does, while she kept dumb and dumber (Bush Sr. and Jr.) on pedestals. They’ve used that “entertainment” show to attack Obama’s religion, question the authenticity of his birth certificate, the list goes on. Good riddance to her.

    Shocker!!!! NOt. Knew she would go to Fox. She loves to bash the President. She and Hannity can be bosom buddies.
