The expected revamp on The View is happening — the rumored ouster of co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck appears to be a done deal. She would join veteran co-host Joy Behar who announced she was leaving the ABC talk show after 16.5 years. Sources have confirmed speculation that Hasselbeck won’t be on The View beyond this season. According to US Weekly, conservative Hasselbeck was deemed “too extreme and right wing.” I hear ABC is already talking to potential replacements for Hasselbeck. Rumor is that Ali Wentworth was approached for the gig and passed. Former Survivor contestant Hasselbeck has been on The View since 2003. “Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of The View and has a long term contract,” ABC said in a statement.
