Elisabeth Hasselbeck Furious With Barbara Walters
Posted by Adam
ELISABETH Hasselbeck is not a happy woman.
The former TV star is said to be furious about the lackluster farewell she got on her last day on The View.
Hasselbeck’s boss Barbara Walters only gave her a scant few minutes to say her goodbyes on July 10, and she didn’t even invite her back for Joy Behar’s hour-long goodbye bash on Aug. 9.
“Elisabeth is fuming over this latest snub from Barbara,” said a source. “It’s no secret that politically conservative Elisabeth wasn’t afraid to publicly stand up to Barbara’s liberal points of view.
“That’s grated on Barbara’s nerves and obviously reached a boiling point this past year.
“Now Elisabeth feels the very minor going-away tribute given to her, versus the spectacle bestowed upon Barbara’s good friend Joy, was just another public dig to embarrass her.
“Elisabeth is no dummy. She saw the writing on the wall and quickly got another job at FOX News before Barbara had the chance to fire her.”
Barbra didn’t like Elisabeth beating her to the punch and her to the punch and retaliated by blacklisting her from any future appearances on the show.
“Elisabeth outsmarted Barbara, and Barbara couldn’t stand it,” added the source. “As far as Barbara is concerned, Elisabeth’s last day on the show was her last day ever.”
