Backstage audio of The View meltdown revealed.

Warning: language

In 2006, The View‘s Elisabeth Hasselbeck had an argument with Barbara Walters and Joy Behar about a proposal from the FDA to allow the morning-after pill for over-the-counter consumption.

In audio released for a new book “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View”, Hasselbeck can be heard trying to quit the US talk show in the middle of a commercial break.

She had a bitter row with Rosie O’Donnell in 2007 and another with Whoopi Goldberg. She remained with the show until 2013 befor joining FOX & Friends for two years.

  1. They just showed this on the Today Show. The recording during the break. But what was hilarious is they showed the moment after the break when they were back on air. They hugged each other and Barbara Walters tried to smooth it all over. It was so fake. Lol 😂

  2. I thought it showed the power of the producer to turn things around, not with threats, but with words mimicking her emotions and conjoling her to get back out there, with 30 seconds to spare. For all intensive purposes she was gone and not going back. You better understand how producers on reality shows manage to get contestants to do things they say is not them.

  3. Had never heard of her. Clearly wasn’t a journalist or writer, or something like that. So looked her up. Claims to fame: ‘Survivor’ contestant & married an NFL Quarterback.

    And people still wonder why reality tv is taking over!

    • She was on the 2nd season of survivor. It’s a bit unfair to say she is a reality tv star. Survivor is up to season 38… she has done a lot more with her life since then. She’s on Fox News…. not something I watch but ur definitely selling her short.
