Just a few days after Joy Behar announced she is leaving ABC’s “The View,” reports have emerged that the network has failed to renew Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s contract after nine seasons with the program.
Mrs. Hasselbeck, who continually battles the four other left-leaning women on the show, reportedly is too “right-wing” for the audience.
“The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right-wing,” a show insider told UsMagazine.com Friday. “People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed.”
It was not reported who will be taking her place.
