Elizabeth Hasselbeck Expresses Anger At Rosie O'Donnell's Potential Return To 'The View'

Elizabeth Hasselbeck isn't impressed with her old place of employment.

After finding out the speculation of Rosie O'Donnell returning for the 18th season of 'The View,' the 37 year-old couldn't help but give her view on the matter.

Hasselbeck called into 'Fox & Friends,' the show she now hosts after leaving 'The View' in 2013, while on vacation and brought up an old grudge she had with O'Donell.

"What could ruin a vacation more than to hear news like this?" she asked Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade. "I know Rosie very well. We worked quite closely. Talk about not securing the border!"

"Here in 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, coming back with a bunch of control ready to regain a seat at the View table," the TV personality explained.

Hasselbeck also thought that the potential rehiring of her former colleague is "not surprising" in the slightest. "I think this has been in the works for a long time," she noted.

"I'll go back to the reunion show for [Barbara Walters]. How odd is this, when you have the woman, who again, insinuated that our own troops were terrorists in Iraq at the time, then left the show...to have such ease the day of Barbara's goodbye show was shocking to me? She walked around with a lot of control and I had the chance to talk to her," Hasselbeck's rant continued.

Adding, "Rosie herself told me, on-set, while we were mic'ed up, that she produced the reunion show to have everybody together and it was her idea. Now, would you think that the woman who left in the way that she did would be producing Barbara's goodbye show? Here's the shocker: It was actually her hello show."

The daytime talk show is definitely in need of some new faces, especially since co-hosts Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd will not be returning for the next season, and as it stands Whoopi Goldberg is the only panellist left.

But according to Hasselbeck, this is not a good thing for O'Donnell. "I don't think it would be wise for Rosie O'Donnell to challenge Whoopi Goldberg on anything. I really don't," she warned. "And I would also say that after years of being there, Rosie found out one thing about me: Don't mess with a pregnant mama and do not mess with our military when it comes to this girl sitting next to her."

In conclusion, Hasselbeck sarcastically said, "I could not be more thankful to be at 'Fox & Friends.'"

Rosie needs to sue Elizabeth. The money she could receive for the deflamation remarks could be donated to military families. Rosie has donated millions to many causes. I am so happy she is coming back to the view. Elizabeth is right where she belongs sitting between 2 idiots on bullshit mountain...
