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.

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.

JEM

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!

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.

‘This Is Us’ Guest Star Ron Cephas Jones & Jasmine Cephas Jones Become First Father-Daughter Winners In Emmy History

On Saturday night, Ron Cephas Jones took home his second Emmy for his guest-star turn on the hit NBC drama, This Is Us.   Jones, plays the biological father, William Hill to Sterling K. Brown’s Randall Pearson.  Jones took home the gold during the final night of the Creative Arts Emmys leading into Sunday’s night’s major ceremony on the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys on ABC. (8 p.m. EST/5 p. m. PST).

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.
