Variety recently released a never been heard audio recording from a feud between Barbara Walters and Elisabeth Hasselbeck from when they were both on The View.
In the recording, Elisabeth, who had just been debating with Barbara over the morning after pill, threatened to quit the show.
“I’m not going to sit there and get reprimanded on the air. It’s not ok to sit there and get reprimanded on the air,” she is quoted as saying. When fellow co-host Joy Behar tried to calm her down, Elisabeth continued her rant.
“What the (expletive),” she continued. 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 (expletive) Post!”
Elisabeth finally was convinced to return to the show, despite the fact that Barbara called her reaction ‘ridiculous.’
