Elisabeth Hasselbeck Leaving ‘The View’ After 9 Years — Report

Ironically, the former ‘Survivor’ contestant is reportedly being voted off the hit talk show. And will Barbara Walters join her?

Worst. International. Women’s. Day. Ever. Just hours after Joy Behar confirmed she’s ending her 16-year run on The View this August, a new report claims that Elisabeth Hasselbeck will also be bidding farewell to the ABC daytime feud-fest. But unlike Joy, Elisabeth is allegedly being forced out of her seat at the ladies’ table!

“The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing,” a source close to production tells Us Weekly. “People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed.”

Elisabeth, who became an official View co-host in Nov. 2003, is believed to be the show’s most polarizing force. Viewers either love her for being an outspoken Republican in Hollywood, or they despise her for having such radically different views from their own. If Us‘ report is true, it would appear the latter category has won out.

A Brief History Of Elisabeth Hasselbeck

Though The View made Elisabeth, 35, a household name, the daytime talk show wasn’t her first foray into the world of national television. She was a member of the Kucha tribe on 2001’s Survivor: The Australian Outback, where she apparently didn’t learn how to survive being voted off of shows.

She married Tim Hasselbeck, her college boyfriend, in July 2002. They have three children together: daughter Grace Elizabeth, born in 2005; son Taylor Thomas, born in 2007; and Isaiah Timothy, born in 2009.

Barbara Walters On Her Way Out Too?

Sources tell the Daily News that the show’s creator/executive producer and star, Barbara Walters is considering stepping down.

Barbara and reps for the show declined to comment.

HollywoodLifers, are you disappointed to hear that Elisabeth is leaving The View? Where do you think she should go next? Drop a comment with your thoughts on this shocking departure.

Hate the view – Elisabeth didn’t help with the extreme liberal kissie kissies. Can’t stomach any of them.

Wake up deadbeat America. Liberals are RUINING the country! This is just another example. A person is losing their livelihood because she actually has an opinion that differs from the other dimwits of the show (and representative of all the deadbeats in this country!)

Oh No! With Elizabeth leaving, who is going to kiss Barbara’s butt? That is basically all she does on the show anyway….and brag about how good her sex and marriage is with her husband and that she has the “Bestest” kids in the whole world! Yes, Liz, we all know that you are Barbara’s pet but now she will have to find another! Too bad!

Liz never had an original thought…she always repeated what was said on talk radio. She listened so she would know what to think and say. Typically conservatives think Liz will not be replaced with another conservative, they never never think things through before they open their yap. Megan McCain would be so great!! It’s time to get a SMART conservative on the show. All the other ladies on The View had careers before being hired…Liz’s talent was eating insects. I think she is also wearing necklaces made by her kids.

Are you kidding me, everyone on that show EXCEPT for Elizabeth agreed with Whoopie. NONE of the women had a thought of their own except for Elizabeth. Whatever Whoopie said the others agreed with her. And if Elizabeth said anything to disagree with Whoopie the others would be on Whoopies side. Elizabeth was the only reason I watched that show when I did. ABC could save some money and fire all of them and just keep Whoopie on…it’s the Whoopie show anyway..I don’t like her either..Elizabeth will,do better leaving that show..

Better get four liberals and rename your show. “The One View” show.I won’t be watching any longer. There are a lot of us, “conservatives” out here. That was the whole objective of the “VIEW” to have four different people. Bad move. Just lost one more “VIEWer” Isn’t it so ironic, the “liberals” demand we conform to their thinking, but won’t tolerate others? (they scream for tolerance?)They get their view represented, but good grief it “everyone” gets theirs represented. So, Miss Barbara, bad, bad move.

See ya, obviously the “CRAZY” view is not what the majority of the public find healthy. So can just troll her website for that view:)

when I heard Joy B was leaving thought I might tune in again – Elizabeth gone – no way will I watch or DVR the show. It is so sad that the Dems think that they are the ONLY voice in the USA…

yeah, that’s why the overwhelming majority of Americans watching network (read: MAINSTREAM) TV despised here–because she was so “average”–you mean the priveledged upbringing she had? her one-sided views that were regurgitated from other lame-brained conservatives. Girl never had an original thought nor was she capable of relating to or empathizing with anyone below her financial status. Buh-bye b*tch

Elisabeth was the only reason I watched The View. She was the lone conservative host with all the other liberals. If she is gone, I will no longer watch. She was a voice of reason. So much for having a different view!!

I was happy to hear that Joy was leaving because of her I don’t watch the View very often. Shame on Barbara Walters/Bill Getty for pushing her out. I don’t think they polled a very large group. She was the only Consrvative there’s a very strong liberal bias. It seems like they don’t want people to have different viewpoints than the liberals on that show. She’s better off. With her gone I will not be watching.

that’s because American’s are done with racist, privileged, white idiots hell bent on keeping the country white and not giving a f*ck about anyone but themselves and their monied friends. If you are a conservative, let me ask you, do you really give a single care to anyone other than your white, privelidged and monied friends? Do you EVER give a thought to those less fortunate than yourself? Prob not, and definitely not in EH’s case. What a spoiled little brat. Good riddance. Face it, honey, you and Elizabeth your whole pruned faced racist lot are fast becoming the slimmer and slimmer minority as time goes on. HALLELUJAH!!

Elizabeth’s right wing views are stated with anger and hostility.
I quit watching this woman on the view because she talked as if she was an expert on things which she had little real knowledge. So I quit watching the view. It is her delivery of what she considers facts that is so frustrating.

So true. The only one able to think logically. I won’t be watching The View after Elisabeth leaves. The other 4 couldn’t stand it because E’s “view” was her own and she owned it.

Ha! Unless she’s going to FOX, home girl best get comfortable at home planning gun and white girl parties. That’s the only audience she’s got left. Hopefully, the fact that a spoiled white girl who’s never had to work for a thing in her life spouting political views like she knows anything, just got the ‘shut-the-f*ck-up’ treatment from her netword based on views if the MAJORITY of the viewers–MAINSTREAM AMERICANS, b*tch. Girl’s a pariah now. Good, let her and her racist privileged friends hole up in their gated communities and rot.
