*Barbara Walters said this morning that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is not leaving “The View.”
The conservative co-host sat quietly as Walters addressed what she called the “particularly false story that keeps getting picked up,” referring to an Us Weekly report last week that quoted unnamed sources claiming Hasselbeck was being fired for her conservative views.
“The truth is, we love Elisabeth,” Walters told the audience. “I like her personally and she’s just a wonderful person. But beyond that, we value and appreciate her point her view. It’s important to us because Elisabeth helps give this show perspective and balance. And believe me, she’s tougher than she looks, [having to] sit here for a decade and take the kind of guff we give her.”
