Joy Behar is out, and now Us Weekly reports that “The View’s” resident conservative, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, is leaving the show too.

Now that "The View's" Elisabeth Hasselbeck has apologized for insensitive comments she made about Erin Andrews, essentially saying the stalker should have just waited to watch the ESPN reporter on "Dancing with the Stars" to get his kicks, it's been discovered that said stalker, Michael David Barrett, can actually watch what he wants in prison.
"Dancing with the Stars" contestant Erin Andrews is steamed at "The View's" Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who took a swipe at Andrews for being scantily clad in her "DWTS" dance numbers, but then took it a step further by making controversial statements about Andrews' convicted stalker, who was just sentenced to 30 months in prison.
"If I'm him, I'm like, 'Man, I just could have waited 12 weeks and seen this a little bit less without the prison time,'" Hasselbeck quipped.

Rumor has it that pregnant "View" co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be replaced by her former rival, Rosie O'Donnell! Is it true?
Both liberals and conservatives agree -- this rumor is false! Rosie told "Extra" that there was no truth to the story, while Elisabeth joked that she'd need to be replaced by a fellow conservative, saying, "Is she a Republican now?"
Elisabeth is currently promoting her new book, "The G Free Diet," in which the former "Survivor" dishes about living with Celiac disease, which means she is unable to tolerate gluten. "All those doctors who were telling me it's IBS, it's colitis, you need surgery," Hasselbeck explained. "I knew they were wrong, it had to be something I was eating."

The couple are parents to tots Grace Elisabeth, 3, and Taylor Thomas, 15 months. Their next bundle of joy is due in August.
Oh the horror! Was conservative talk show host Elisabeth Hasselbeck left off the guest list for this year's presidential Christmas party?
That's true! The "View" hostess, who has attended the holiday bash in the past, complained yesterday on the show of being snubbed. "Maybe I didn't do enough for the Republican Party this year," Elisabeth said, as reported by Us Weekly.
She added, "I love Christmas cards. I love getting them. There is one in particular that I usually like, and it's an invitation to the White House Christmas party. Not the big one, but the 20th one down the road that you get the leftovers at the party. I'd be going to that one -- no invitation this year."
After getting wind of Elisabeth's questioning, reps from the White House issued an apology to the former "Survivor" -- and said it was never their intention to cut her from the guest list.
"Following today's live show, Elisabeth received a call from the The White House, and they both had a great conversation," Karl T. Nilsson, the executive publicity director of "The View" told the magazine. "The President's office apologized and explained that she and her husband were indeed invited to the White House for Christmas and were sorry that it did not arrive. It was simply an oversight."
Nilsson added, "Both Elisabeth and Tim are hoping to make plans for a visit to the White House in the early New Year."
During the presidential campaign, Hasselbeck an avid supporter of John McCain and Sarah Palin, and introduced the Alaska Governor at GOP rallies.
