Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Bye-Bye “The View”

Posted Friday March 8, 2013 3:55 PM GMT

She’s been the lone voice of the conservative viewpoint for close to a decade on “The View,” but Elisabeth Hasselbeck won’t be back on the couch next season.

The beautiful blonde 35-year-old apparently didn’t have enough pull with the show’s audience to justify keeping her on the panel any longer.

An insider told press, "The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing. People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed."

Hasselbeck’s departure comes after Joy Behar announced she’s leaving as well- "You can't stay forever on a show. I am graciously exiting stage left. I've put in 16 1/2 years and felt the time was right. I want to explore other opportunities."
