We told ya so!
Wednesday was Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s last day on The View which began with Barbara Walters walking out on to the set with her arm around the conservative Survivor host.
A teary-eyed Barbara introduced a choked up Hasselbeck, who confirmed that Wednesday would indeed be her last day on The View. She went on to thank everyone behind the scenes before going around the table and praising Whoopi, Joy, and Barbara (Sherri Shepard was absent).
Barbara then returned the kind words saying, “You’ve always brought a fresh voice to the show and were never afraid to express your opinion.” Walters wished Hasselbeck the best as she crosses the street to work for Roger Ailes at Fox News Channel.
Whoopi described Elisabeth as “the cat’s meow,” and then reached across the table to her friend for an emotional embrace.
After ten minutes of well wishes and goodbyes, Whoopi threw to a commercial break. From there, the broadcast continued on with relative normality including Hot Topics and Justin Bieber’s mom, Pattie Mallette, as a guest.
