Elisabeth Hasselbeck Continues Rant on Rosie O'Donnell's Return to THE VIEW
As BWW reported earlier this week, former VIEW co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck called in to 'Fox & Friends' to share her displeasure over news that Rosie O'Donnell was reportedly returning as a host of the ABC morning talk show. "What could ruin a vacation more than to hear news like this?" she said. "Talk about not securing the border. 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."
Yesterday, upon hearing the official news that O'Donnell would be returning, Hasselbeck turned to Instagram to share more harsh criticism of her former co-host. "When asked about Barbara Walters retiring, I provided my analysis. When asked about Sherri [Shepherd] and Jenny [McCarthy] announcing their departure, I provided my analysis. When asked about Rosie coming back, I provided my analysis. When the next two chairs get filled--if asked--I will provide my analysis."
ABC confirmed yesterday that O'Donnell would be making a return as host of ABC's THE VIEW, following news that Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthywould soon be exiting the daily talk show. O'Donnell left the show in 2007 following a confrontation with then co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeckover the war in Iraq.
