Elisabeth Hasselbeck Sounds-Off on Rosie O'Donnell Returning to 'The View'

UPDATE: Former "View" co-host Joy Behar wants Elisabeth Hasselbeck to explain herself, after she told “FOX & Friends” that Rosie O’Donnell spit in the face of the military.

Behar asked CNN's Don Lemon, "What does she mean by that? And isn't it kind of a nasty thing to say about somebody who basically is a good person? I thought that was really kind of below the belt -- to say that she spits in the face of the military… That's a dangerous thing to say about somebody. ... I think it's a hate-filled remark. And she should explain it."

Behar added that O'Donnell is a "very generous person," and called Hasselbeck's remarks — and FOX News — "fiction anyway." Watch the video!


In Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s world, nothing ruins a vacation like hearing Rosie O’Donnell is returning to “The View.”

Hasselbeck called into “FOX and Friends” on Wednesday to opine on reports that her former nemesis would be back on their old show next fall.

"What could ruin a vacation more than to hear news like this?" Hasselbeck said.

Rosie O'Donnell Reportedly Returning to 'The View' 

"Here comes to 'The View' the very woman who spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network, and really in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there."

Hasselbeck added that she thinks the deal has been in the works for a long time, partly because of the way Rosie acted at Barbara Walters' retirement party.

Elisabeth said the comedian walked around the studio "with a lot of control" and took credit for planning the celebration. Watch the video!
