Elisabeth Hasselbeck is not leaving “The View.”
Rumors surfaced late last week that Elisabeth, the conservative member of the panel, was being ousted after viewers thought she was “too extreme and right wing,” per Us Weekly. But on Monday, Barbara Walters, cleared things up on “The View.”
“On a more a serious note, there’s a particularly false story about Elisabeth’s alleged departure that’s getting picked up. Truth is we love Elisabeth. We value and appreciate her point of view,” Barbara said. “We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave this show.”
Barbara also confirmed she is not leaving the show either.
The news comes just days after Joy Behar’s departure from the show was announced.
Joy is leaving the talk show to pursue other options.
