The View’s Hasselbeck Being Booted Out of Show


Hasselbeck, 35, the View's lone conservative voice, reportedly won’t return next season. She will join Joy Behar, who announced Thursday that she’s bailing on the show in August after 16 years — leaving only Barbara Walters as the show’s last original co-host.
Meanwhile, the Web site Showbiz411.com reported that Barbara Walters wants actress Brooke Shields to join her on the show.
Hasselbeck has occasionally clashed with her co-anchors over political issues — most famously with blustery liberal Rosie O’Donnell, who spent one turbulent season on the show (2006-07).

ABC is cutting Hasselbeck loose because she tested poorly in market research — with viewers finding her opinions too strident and extreme, according to a report in Us Weekly.
