Elisabeth Hasselbeck Says Farewell To THE VIEW On Her Final Episode – Watch the Segment!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Today was the final episode and appearance of a ten year run as co-host on ABC’s The View for Elizabeth Hasselbeck.

On Tuesday it was announced that Hasselbeck was leaving for a new job on the early morning show Fox & Friends. For the final time, Elisabeth sat at The View table with Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar, where she eloquently, and at times teary-eyed, delivered her farewell speech to each of her co-hosts, and The View’s executive producer, Bill Geddie.

Hasselbeck’s departure ends years of heated political debates between she and Behar and Goldberg, since her Republican viewpoints were a counterpoint to the other ladies on the panel, more often than not.

After the jump watch Hasselbeck addressing the cameras and the ladies of The View as she moves on with her career! Then let us know if you are glad Elisabeth is exiting the show? Did you think, like her or not, that her goodbye was well said? Share your thoughts!

Elisabeth’s speech was okay, heartfelt depending whom she was talking about. Wish her well but did not like her approach and temper with co-hosts. I will not follow her to the fox program.

I wish Elizabeth well. I don’t watch The View much but from what I’ve seen when I watch she”s not the bitch the so called tolerant liberals make her out to be. I respect anyone who stands up for what they believe in even if it doesn’t seem popular or if they’re hated for it. The haters think by insulting Elizabeth they’re hurting her but they’re probably making her stronger.

Nicely said Ron, I don’t watch the View either but I know how the left would Attack Elizabeth all the time, they are haters because she had a different opinion.

‘haters” is bandied about plenty.

Gosh almighty get a life she is not what is bringing down this country so I guess if everyone does not believe your way of thinking we are homophobics racist you name it does she speak for me no I do it myself get off her back the hackling hens continue! She is not what I would want for the conservative voice just because you have a difference of opinion does not make you the bad guy!

People don‘t get much more ignorant or intolerant than Joy Behar. Why is Joy‘s narrow=minded behaviour called “tolerance“ and acceptance, when if you don‘t agree with her opinion, it is called “intolerance“ and “ignorance? People can‘t have it both ways. You can only call Joy tolerant and accepting if you happen to share her opinions on the filth that she tolerates and accepts. It‘s a double edged sword, and a hypocritical one at that.

Is behar still on whatever low rated cable news channel her show was on? Dumb move by the view bec elisabeth was that show. And she really had to put up w/ being the only conservative against a panel of all democrats. Ratings of the view would probably plummet w/ babs retiring and elisabeth moving to highest rated cable news channel fox. This is a dumb move by the view to let elisabeth leave and it’ll probably launch the era of the talk and new show the real. Rumors have elisabeth being replaced by jenny mccarthy of all people!

I think that whether or not the lefties want to admit it or not, having Elizabeth there brought balance to the show. The rest of the cast were nothing but a bunch of old biddie bullies who were just as intolerant and hateful as those on this board claimed Elizabeth was.

I agree with you Jeff, Elizabeth was not the hateful one on the view, the others were, She did bring balance to the show but most lefties can’t deal with hearing what the other side has to say and feel, so instead of having a adult conversation they attack you because they THINK they are right instead of trying to understand what the other side is saying, and listening to both sides of the issue and respecting each other instead of going after you like a bully in a school playground.

Totally agree Jeff!! Joy Behar is nothing but a vicious, disgusting bully. If you disagree with her in any way, she attacks. She is open to no other viewpoint. Joy should stop worrying so much about the “epidemic“ of teen bullying and take a good long hard look in the mirror and her own behaviour. Joy is the hateful, narrow-minded bigot, not Elisabeth!

I really like Elisabeth and I’ll miss her on The View. I’ve actually been a fan of her since way back when she was on Survivor. That was an emotional goodbye. As a newlywed in my early 30s who’s about to become a mom, I appreciated seeing a panelist close in age and family situation to myself. I’m glad her voice was allowed to be heard on the show and could relate to her viewpoints. While I didn’t always agree with everything, I admire her for sticking to her beliefs and having the courage to publicly do that. There were… Read more »

Good riddance indeed! I’m sure Fox can revel in her unworldly, narrow point of view. The beauty is she WAS fired — nine seasons too late if you ask me — but, like Star Jones (who beautifully thumbed her nose at the offer) was offered to work until the end of her contract cycle and put her own p.r. spin on her “departure.” I guess between her firing and the end of her contract, Fox picked up her carcas. I especially won’t miss that distressed look she got on her pinched face when she found something disagreeable or offensive. Maybe… Read more »

I must admit that I will not miss Elisabeth on The View. I found her to be very rude, always looking for attention. I stopped watching the show for a few years because of her attitude. Now ,if you could just keep Sherry from also interuputing everyone, I am sure that I will enjoy the show. I will be Joy very, very much.

I see there are WAY TOO MANY right wing conservative types on this site. You wouldn’t think soaps would attract that particular crowd!! BTW I’m glad I live in Canada. Your country is in danger of being ripped apart by the constant battle of liberals vs. right-wing conservatives. Can’t y’all just get along:)

Never have liked any of the ladies on The View, but Hasselbeck was the LEAST offensive to me. I’ll bet she’s glad to get the heck outta there.

I am glad she is leaving. Too often, she was forced to compromise her beliefs for the sake of her job. Often times, it was almost like she was apologiziing for being pro-marriage, pro-family, and pro-life. I don‘t support slaughtering children either. She should have a place where her belief in truth is respected. I hope in her new forum she can speak candidly about her convictions. She will no longer have to be bullied and belittled by Joy and arrogantly dismissed by Barbara. I wish her all the best in her new job!

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
