Elisabeth Hasselbeck Shades Rosie O'Donnell's Return To 'The View'

Time apparently hasn't healed all wounds for former The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Following the news that Rosie O'Donnell would be returning to the talker, Elisabeth called in to her new series Fox & Friends and Hasselbeck unleashed some shade in Rosie's direction! 

Deadline reports:

Fox News Channel this morning had vacationing Elisabeth Hasselbeck call in to say Rosie has not changed from her previous, short, unhappy time on the ABC talk show, and was calling the shots on the episodes leading up to Barbara Walters’ retirement as The View’s on-air Den Mom.

“Here in comes to The View the very woman who’s spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network, and, really spit in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there –  coming back with a bunch of control, ready to regain The View with a seat at that table, Hasselbeck said this morning on Fox & Friends.

When The View collected all of its past and present co-hosts for Walters’ penultimate episode, Rosie told her she “produced the reunion show,” Hasselbeck said.

“Go back to the reunion show for Barbara, how odd is this? When you have a woman who again insinuated that our own troops are terrorists in Iraq at the time, [who] left the show…while still at the end of her contract –  to have such ease the day of Barbara’s goodbye show was shocking to me.  She walked around with a lot of control and then when I had the chance to talk to her, Rosie herself, told me, on-set while we were mic-ed up, that she produced the reunion show to have everybody together and that it was her idea.  Now, do you think the woman who left the way that she did would be producing Barbara’s goodbye show?  Here’s the shocker, it was actually her ‘Hello Show.’”

Hasselbeck also said O’Donnell “seemed to have a lot of control for Barbara’s farewell show.”

Reports that Rosie also has veto power on new co-hosts has Elisabeth also predicting fireworks between the polarizing O'Donnell and the show's current moderator Whoopi Goldberg.

“Anybody who’s going to be in that seat, if indeed it’s all going to play out as I think it will or already has, will have to be approved by Rosie.  Let’s not forget Whoopi Goldberg is sitting there and Whoopi is not going to let anyone control her…She has actually more trophy…than Rosie –  she’s the leader on that show.  I’m going to be very interested to see how that goes.”

Hasselbeck said for the record she’s wildly happy at Fox & Friends and has no thoughts of returning to The View, adding, “I could not be more thankful to be at Fox & Friends…Mark my words, this is just the beginning again.”

The shade is real, y'all.

Surprised by Elisabeth's comments, Instincters? Should we expect fireworks on The View??

fox and friends ratings are at a 13-year low.  does anybody else smell the desperation?

Don't like Rosie. Never did. Obnoxious on so many levels. I love Elizabeth and wish her luck.

Ratings were at their all time high when Rosie was on the View...she adds so much flavor to whatever she does I don't know what it is, I guess she's the real deal!!...not some fake ass Survivor reject who happened to land on the view..Rosie had the #1 talk show on the air has many movies under her belt...the woman has paid her dues..nothing has been handed to her !!! She has worked for it!!! unlike that bitter little turd hasslebeck!!!!!..

I agree with almost all the negative quotes printed here; I too have called her a b**ch many times, however I disagree with those of you that say she belongs on Faux (Fox) News with her closed minded Republican point of view.  She doesn't deserve that job nor has she earned it.  My husband watching news (Fox) constantly morning until bedtime while I tend to watch CNN or other channels because I cannot stand nor tolerate the un-"fair" and un-"balanced" news on Fox.  But since Elizabeth joined Fox and Friends my husband turns to another channel and will come back later.  That really tells me something and I think you know what I mean.  I too think she must be jealous of Rosie who is far more talented, compassionate, and has a more open mind even though she tends toward the liberal side, she still "listens" to the other side which is something Eliza. is unable to do.  I say, Good riddance from The View.  And I want to congratulate, Barbara, Whoopi and and the "suits" upstairs for bringing Rosie back.  I promise you I will never miss a show. 

How in the World did Hasselbeck ever get on the View or Fox??????? She is a dimwit bitch!!!!!! She can't come Close to what Rosie can offer Any Show! Linda

I agree with every person on here. a bitch and she just needs to go away....I really wish that Rosie would have smacked the bitch right yp in the face.....then pulled all of that fake blonde hair out of her head one hair at a time...I just detest people like her

Rosie should just sit on the bitch so that we could be done with it!! 

Somebody should have left her on the f...island when she was on Survivor we would be in peace today!

Lot's of statements with no proof.  Oh wait - she's fox

Who the fuck watches the view?? It's nothing but a bunch of old ladies yelling at each other about absolutely nothing important!

I don't like Rosie and I will not watch the View anymore?????s

H'ass'elbeck belongs on FOX. She is a dim witted person who doesn't have any original thoughts and just mimics other Republicans like an ape mimics a human without having the most basic understanding of what is actually being said. I try not to hate people like her since the world has people much worse but compared to her peers I have to put her at the top of the list of people I dislike the most. Her logic and reasoning skills are those of a twelve year old. As for the show I find it too difficult to watch (especially when she was on it). They should change the name of the show to "My View, Not Yours." They waste 20 minutes of every show trying to scream their opinion louder than the other hosts. I would watch a show where they used sound reasoning to discuss issues instead of voicing their self-centered opinions while claiming these opinions are widely shared but never offering up any proof beyond what their best friends think. 

Give it a rest. The objective view is that 90% of the time this show is a farce. I don't blame Barbara. I think at the outset it was a good idea and the original cast (minus SJ) was actually good. Meredith brought real world experience and a certain reason and calm to the show. The show with H'ass'elbeck was a far cry from what Barbara had in mind (I believe). The last several years was like a SNL parody but even the best comedic minds on SNL couldn't do "The View" justice in the end.

You know what? I do hate EH. She would surely be one of the first people to throw a stone at me. Thank 'god' The Comedy Station got her. Oops...I meant FOX.

I agree Elisabeth is just a bunch of.sour grapes.....the heck with her ...WELCOME. ..ROSIE OXOXO LOVE HER.....!!!


HasselHACK is a fest class cunt. Who gives a fuck whT she says? Meanwhile Rosie is laughing her ass straight to the bank 

Elisabeth Hasselbeck your a Bitch and its hard to even listen to you holier than thou republican closed minded bitch riddled veiw. Do us a favor someone dump this bitch off on the island they discovered her on. I understand if you didnt like Rosies point of veiw but your Still fucking whining about it. You still cant let go of the past.i

They should have left her scrawny ugly ass in the outback. Her reaction shows she still hasn't gotten over being voted off. We all know you got fired bitch, they just tried to cover it up. Your rants just prove what hides behind your mask is just an ugly vicious jealous bitch. hahahahaha be gone bitch before someone drops a house on you.

I think she needs some cheese to go with that whine. It sounds like she is jealous that The View would rehire Rosie and have no interest in Lizzie. She is where she belongs. On a network that doesn't give a crap about the truth!

Gee, looks like Lizzie Has-been has figured out that she is just another addition to the blonde bimbo flock of sheep at Faux News & can't take the blending into the woodwork. My heart bleeds.

Hasselbeck is an asshole; she always was and always will be.

Woman bashing women based on a woman talk show.  So unprofessional, they may feel the way they feel but it is not good for business.  Go back to the kitchen girls and raise kids

HasselBITCH shut up! Your angry and jealous you weren't invited to the Reunion for Barbara Walters farewell, if you say your happy at Fox and Family, then be happy there and stop inflicting your venom on Rosie to society, NO ONE believes the crap out of your worthless piece of shitty mouth. 

Lizardbreath was sitting right next to Rosie at the farewell reunion!!

LOL so true, hasselbitch, she sounds more like she has not stopped sucking on the bitter grapes that she has been sucking on before Rosie left.

Elisabeth...“I could not be more thankful to be at Fox & Friends…Mark my words, this is just the beginning again.” Enough said, move on and stop trying to capitalize on this.

I tend to not use such harsh words....but I detest Elisabeth Hasselbeck... she is so narrow minded and needs to be on Faux News...

I was beginning to like her as i thought she was getting more open minded - but she has been FOXED and her jealousy is just appalling.  Rosie brought the best ratings for the View and she can stay with her friends at FOX.

This is the same bitch who shut anyone up who dared to speak out against the Iraq war by calling them unpatriotic and un-American.  How many lives could have been saved if it wasn't for cunts like her?  As far as I'm concerned this treasonous whore should be rotting in prison, so it's no surprise that she's a celebrity on Fox.


I heard the comments by this propaganda spreading republican who wants everyone to listen to her thoughts yet deaf to anyone else's views. She is a hypocrite among hypocrites. She belongs on fox news spreading lies and jokes. She needs to focus on her own stupidity and leave the real people alone. Its because of her that Rosie is under fire for no reason what so ever. Views taken out of context and interrupted her before she can make the point she was trying to make. Then claim she defended her when she kept her mouth shut. I think she need to continue to keep it shut.

Ares you Nailed it gurl.they should drop hasselbeck back off on the island where they found her. Thats a Survivor refrence.
