Things get heated as Joy Behar weighs in on the Hasselbeck-O'Donnell conflict.
Wait, what’s happening over on The View? This is meant to be our relaxing daytime viewing, but recently, after the rumoured appointment of Rosie O’Donnell to the panel, daggers have been flying – in the form or some uncalled for comments.
Hasselbeck wasn't really enjoying the view after O'Donnell's tentative return.
It all started with the tentative plans to bring O’Donnell back to The View. When the announcement was made earlier that week, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, a former host of the ABC panel show and current Fox News contributor, interrupted her vacation for the sole purpose of calling in to Fox & Friends with some rather harsh words for her former co-host.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck is "shocked" at the news of her former co-host Sherri Shepherd's departure from ABC's 'The View'.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who left ABC's The Viewlast year, told her Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy that she is "shocked" at the news of Sherri Shepherd's departure from the morning talk show, as US Weekly reports.

On the face of it, Jenny McCarthy seems a reasonable choice to host 'The View,' though do a bit of digging and whole thing looks shaky, at best.
Jenny McCarthy's anti-vaccine views have been cast into the spotlight once more after the former Playboy model and actress was named as the replacement for Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar on The View. McCarthy's son Evan was diagnosed with autism back in 2005, while her marriage to director John Mallory Asher ended shortly afterwards.
The problem is, McCarthy did the rounds on America's biggest television shows at the time, claiming vaccinations caused her son to develop autism - this despite there being a minimal evidence to support such a claim.
In fact, the only real study that linked the administration of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) with autism was undertaken by Andrew Wakefield. The British surgeon has since been banned from practicing medicine in the United Kingdom.

Barbara Walters has gone on the record as saying Elisabeth Hasselbeck will not be leaving The View.
Barbara Walters has attempted to placate the intense rumors concerning 'The View,' with the veteran broadcaster insisting Elisabeth Hasselbeck will not be leaving the show despite reports that suggest her outspoken conservative views is putting off viewers. Deadline.com, Us Weekly and the Hollywood Reporter all report that Hasselbeck's contract will not be renewed, though Walters is adamant the 35-year-old will remain on the show.
"There is a particularly false story that keeps getting picked up about Elisabeth's alleged departure, saying that we don't approve of her conservative views," Walters, who created the long-running talk show, said on Monday's program. (March 11, 2013) "The truth is we love Elisabeth. I like her personally and she's just a wonderful person.But beyond that, we value and appreciate her point of view, it's important to us because Elisabeth helps give the show perspective and balance.So we have no plans for Elisabeth to leave."
ABC had previously released a statement saying that Hasselbeck "is a valued member of The View and had a long-term contract," though failed to address the issue of whether or not she will be offered a renewed deal. The controversial presenter joined the show in 2003 and became known for her heated arguments with liberal co-host Rosie O'Donnell.
