The Chicago Sun Times is reporting that trouble is again brewing at “The View,” this time between conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck and her liberal co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar.
Hasselbeck is said to be “really upset” with her colleagues following heated discussions about the upcoming presidential election.
‘It’s not as bad as during the Rosie [O’Donnell] era,’ said the source, but said it’s bad enough that ‘View’ creator Barbara Walters has called a ‘cooling off’ meeting between the two political factions.
Earlier this month, left-leaning O’Donnell said her former co-host Hasselbeck and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin are “identical cousins … women who hunt in high heels.”
O’Donnell decided to leave the ABC daytime talk show before her contract expired following an on-air confrontation with Hasselbeck over politics.
