- Elisabeth Hasselbeck was having an argument with Barbara Walters and Joy Behar on TV about a proposal from the FDA to allow the morning-after pill for over-the-counter consumption. Hasselbeck argued taking the pill is “the same thing as birthing a baby and leaving it out in the street,” and wouldn’t let the other co-hosts provide their opposing points of view.
- Walters had to interrupt her. “Could you stop now? We have to go on and we have to learn how to discuss these things in some sort of rational way.”
- As the show cut to a commercial, Hasselbeck was so furious, she tore up her notecards and bolted from the table.
- “What the f—!” Hasselbeck yelled. “I don’t even swear. She has me swearing. This woman is driving me nuts. I’m not going back. I can’t do the show like this. She just reprimanded me, and she knew exactly what she was doing. Good-bye! I’m off. Write about that in the New York F—ING Post!”
Hasselbeck addressed the leak on Instagram.
