THE VIEW's Joy Behar Calls Hasselbeck's Comments on O'Donnell 'Below the Belt'

The drama on ABC The View continues as former co-host Joy Behar weighed in on yesterday's harsh comments by Elisabeth Hasselbeck in her appearance on CNN last night.

Behar joined Don Lemon on CNN last night to share her thoughts on the internal politics surrounding the daytime show. Behar welcomed the idea of Rosie O'Donnell returning and scolded Elisabeth Hasselbeck for making a "hate-filled remark" at O'Donnell's expense.

Hasselbeck had called in to FOX AND FRIENDS to share her displeasure over the recent report that O'Donnell would be coming back to the show. "What could ruin a vacation more than to hear news like this?" she began. "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."

Hasselbeck also claimed that O'Donnell's return to The View was "in the works for a long time." "She walked around with a lot of control [at The View reunion show] and when I got a chance to talk with her, Rosie herself told me on set while we were mic'd up that she produced the reunion show to have everybody together and it was her idea," she toldFOX and Friends. "Would you think that the women who left the way that she did would be producing Barbara Walters' goodbye show? Now here's the shocker, it was actually her 'Hello' show."

Last night, Behar chastised Hasselbeck for her "hate-filled remark", adding that it was "below the belt" for her to make "nasty" comments about O'Donnell. She went on to take the opportunity to rib FOX network, saying that "everything's fiction on FOX anyway."

She also told CNN's Don Lemon that the recent fighting among hosts was possibly for ratings, and conceded that The View was not the same show it once was.
