Just like when they were co-hosts on The View, Joy Behar and Rosie O’Donnell aren’t letting Elisabeth Hasselbeck get the last word!
Elisabeth called into her new show Fox & Friends on Wednesday to rant about Rosie’s now confirmed return to The View, but Joy had a few things to say in response to her harsh words.
“I thought that was really kind of below-the-belt, to say she spits in the face of the military,” she told CNN’s Don Lemon on Wednesday night. “What does she mean by that? And isn’t it kind of a nasty thing to say about somebody who basically is a good person?”
She added, “I think it’s a hate-filled remark and she should explain it.”
Ouch! But the comedian’s comments were nothing in comparison to what Rosie herself had to add to the mix. The returning host called out the former Survivor contestant on Twitter, by responding to and retweeting fans’ not-so-nice comments about her.
When one fan wrote, “Y in the hell wouldn’t @Rosie b at ease the day of Barbara’s farewell show? She’s a professional! Not an insecure TWIT like U,” Rosie responded, “excellent comment – she was hiding in her dressing room – til i walked right in and said hello – her reply LETS TAKE A SELFIE !!”
Ball’s in your court, Elisabeth!
