Another member of The View reportedly leaving
Last week, Joy Behar announced she was leaving “The View”, and now “Us” magazine reports that Elisabeth Hasselbeck won’t be back either.
Supposedly, Elisabeth is being kicked out, because she isn’t popular with the audience. A “source” says, quote, “The viewers polled all said she was too extreme and right wing.”
There has been no direct response from ABC or Elisabeth, but a rep for the show says, “She’s a valued member of ‘The View’, and has a long term contract.”
Meanwhile, Showbizz4111.com reports on a potential replacement, Brook Shields. The site says that Barbara Walters “really wants her,” and adds, quote, “the deal isn’t done yet… but it’s [this] close.”
Shields has appeared on The View a half-dozen times, and has co-hosted in the past.
