Elisabeth Hasselbeck was once so livid with Barbra Walters she threatened to storm off “The View”.
The incident occurred during a 2006 taping of the daytime talk show. Ramin Setoodeh reported the news, which he learned from a leaked tape, in his new book Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View.

Hasselbeck and Walter got into a heated conversation about the morning after pill. “I believe that life begins at the moment of conception…” Hasselback said before Walters reportedly cut her off. Hasselbeck then stormed off during a commercial break.
“What the f **k! I don’t even swear. She has me swearing,” Hasselback told co-host Joy Behar. “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. Goodbye! I’m off. Read about that in the New York f**king Post!”

“I’m quitting. I don’t need to be reprimanded on the air like that by this woman,” she continued. “I will take it in the meeting. I will not take that on the air. I’m leaving.”
Hasselbeck eventually returned on-air for the remainder of the show and stayed on “The View” all the way until 2013. She reportedly turned down a 2016 reunion Walters hoped to organize but is expected to return to the show on Tuesday to promote her new book.
