Elisabeth Hasselbeck has been kicked off ‘The View’ for being too right wing!

The View is looking to spruce up their line of hosts! On Thursday we learned that Joy Behar was leaving the ABC talk show after 16 years. Now we’re learning that not only is Joy leaving the show, but so is Elisabeth Hasselbeck! At first it seemed like the decision to leave the show was made by Elisabeth herself, but today we’re finding out that she was in fact fired.

The people have spoken. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, one of the five cohorts of ABC’s daytime talk show The View, will not be returning to the couch next season, following hot on the footsteps of fellow cohost Joy Behar, a source tells Us Weekly.

According to the source, the show’s resident conservative voice is being ousted after market research revealed that she isn’t popular with TV audiences.

“The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing,” the insider tells Us. “People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed.”

When reached for comment, a rep for the show told Us in a statement: “Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of The View and has a long term contract.”

Hasselbeck, 35, joined the cast of the daytime talk show in November 2003 after guest-hosting the show following Lisa Ling’s departure in 2002.

Throughout the course of her time on The View, she has gotten into numerous arguments with her cohosts, including a heated argument with Rosie O’Donnell in 2007 over the War in Afghanistan and with Barbara Walters over Mitt Romney in 2012.

Earlier this week, Behar, 70, announced her own departure from the show after 16 1/2 years.

“You can’t stay forever on a show,” she told Good Morning America. “I am graciously exiting stage left. I’ve put in 16 1/2 years and felt the time was right. I want to explore other opportunities.”

Adds the source to Us: “Joy says it just felt … tired and like work. She was over it.”

Behar has been with the talk show since its inception in 1997, and currently hosts Joy Behar: Say Anything! on Current TV.

I don’t watch this show enough to really have an opinion on it. I’ve seen it a couple times, I just don’t have the time or capability to watch daytime TV. I always thought Elisabeth brought a good level of healthy debate to the show. I thought her opinions were just as important as the other women’s, and I always appreciated her way to stand up for herself.

What do you think about Elisabeth’s departure? Will you miss her?

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Has a Baby Boy


Elisabeth Hasselbeck has given birth to a baby boy.

The View co-host gave birth to Isaiah Timothy on Sunday afternoon in a New York hospital.

“Elizabeth and Isaiah are doing great,” her husband, Tim Hasselbeck, said.

This is the third child for Hasselbeck and her former NFL player hubby. He joins older sister Grace Elisabeth, 4, and brother Taylor Thomas, 20 months.

The newborn weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces at birth.

Hasselbeck announced her pregnancy on The View in January.

“We were thoroughly happy with the surprise of it,” she said. “I didn’t even know for two months — I was walking around — I thought I had — I kept saying, ‘Electionitis, electionitis.'” (She said she felt sick while attending the inauguration earlier this month.)

She added at the time: “I was tired, I was nauseous, I thought I was worn out from the whole procedure,” she went on. “No. I was knocked up and didn’t realize it.”
