View Full Version : I Have New Found Respect For Elisabeth Hasselback

Ok. I definitely do not share the same beliefs or opinions as Elisabeth Hasselback; I'm a democrat. However, I have to say that after watching today's episode of The View, I have new found respect for her. I thought she handled herself extremely well and very professionally.

First of all, here are my thoughts on today's fight between Rosie and Elisabeth. Throughout the season Elisabeth has felt that she has been personally attacked by Rosie on both her beliefs and opinions, with Rosie usually winning by either yelling or sarcastically saying things like "Can you not entertain two thoughts in your mind at the same time." I think ELisabeth finally reached her limit and is not having any more of Rosie bossing her around. She defended herself extremely well during the show and made her points without having to yell or insult anyone. Now, everyone knows Elisabeth does not belief that Rosie thinks the troops are terrorist; that is completely clear. However, I think Elisabeth saw how Rosie's mouth, the same mouth that caused her turmoil this season, got her into trouble and decided that it should also get her out of it. Elisabeth decided that instead of clearly supporting Rosie and saying "No, I don't think you think the troops are terrorists," Rosie should first clear up her own comments, which is completely understandable.

Regarding the Silverstone incident, I have say that I have loved Alicia Silverstone since Clueless, but I thought she was realy immature and rude. Elisabeth looked like she really wanted to give Alicia a warm greeting and Alicia completely blew her off, probably because she does not support her views. I felt really bad for Elisabeth; she looked completely offended; she put her arms on her waist as if to say "How am I going to handle this?" This is where Elisabeth really won me over. Instead of staying quiet throughout the interview, something Star Jones always did when she did not like a guest, she remained professional, asked questions, and did some chit-chat. Alicia is coming on Elisabeth's show, the polite and decent thing to do was to at least give her a polite greeting. It really showed how immature and childish Alicia was and how professional Elisabeth remained. Congrats Elisabeth! :)

Nice post, I agree with you on it
I dont watch the show that often (and honestly only saw it this time on a repeat) but it was good to see Elisabeth finally stepping into the limelight alittle. Shes a smart girl ..... unlike the ludacris lesbian :tape:

I think Elisabeth handled herself well, and I think Rosie did as well. I was looking forward to today's show and yet couldn't watch it.

Rosie is fine, she's free to do and say what she wants, for millions of dollars.
That darn Bush trouncing on the First Amendment, she can only make $10 million
a year on tv, instead of $20 million. Hitler that he is.


She is also a huge pain in the behind because she's just plain rude, and very full
of herself. She is not a very nice person to other people she doesn't like or disagrees
with. It's hard to cover that up. Elizabeth did what she should have done all along.
Maybe knowing Rosie is leaving, she felt free to do that.

Good for ABC ratings, and that's all that matters to ABC.

That grows old fast. See Keith Olberman. If the guy didn't have his sports work to
mellow him out, he'd be off the air from sheer exhaustion from all his hate.

The Donald, he of the really bad hair, thinks Rosie is right about the war, but, likes
what Elizabeth said.

Well, The Donald's show has lost a lot of steam.
Likely to be cancelled.
His tv days are likely numbered.
His #1 tv foe is leaving her show, so who will he fight with
for publicity sake?

The guy is mad the GOP did not take his attempts at public office
and public kingmaking very seriously.....maybe it was the hair. He's
been mad at the GOP for the past year, bashing all of them whenever
he can.

Why?

Look at the real estate market...old Donald has a glut of available
offices and condos he needs to sell right now....that's all the fault of Bush.

Page Six (NY Post) has news that Rosie's The View writer likely defaced
the picture of Elizabeth in the halls of the show studio. All of them
were removed after being found to have been defaced.


The writer is the lead suspect evidently.

OK.

1. What a childish thing to do. Someone actually asks Rosie to
defend her theories, myths, allegations, conspiracy allegations, and
cleverly worded comparisons that bash the military, the war, and the right...
and she explodes, as does her writer.

2. What is a writer doing for Rosie on The View? I thought this was supposed
to be spontaneous, off the cuff, their personal views. We now find out, Rosie
essentially scripts her rants. With help. Great.


If you dish out a lot of harsh words every day, inviting controversy and ratings.
You better be able to take it when it comes right back at you...even if that is
a once in a while thing, not every single day.

Online now, Alicia Silverstone 'snubbing' Elizabeth on the
show, shaking and greeting all the other women, but, her.

That's so, well, junior high.

It fits in with the Rosie The View history though.

What's next, TP'ing her house?
Sending notes to each other under the table dissing Liz?
Ordering pizza and having it sent to her house w/o telling her?


Again, when is being rude a political statement?

Alicia Silverstone, one hit wonder, snubbing anyone is
amusing.

Alicia, be glad anyone invited you on to a tv show in 2007.


Imagine if it was Elizabeth acting like Rosie is - whining, pouting,
defacing pictures - over an argument. The woman is doing her job,
showing up, and taking the typical left wing rude and shoddy abuse
that passes as so called entertainment and ratings grabbing.

if u watch closely maybe alicia was only going to hug rosie or maybe just going to sit down cuz she didn't even really hug joy, and when she saw like rosie, who was right next to her seat and was facing her direction of walking the most and she looks all warm and cuddly then she goes and hugs her
lol just a thought.

Maybe Alicia didn't want to hug EH cuz she is preggers. Isn't there some superstition about touching a pregnant woman results in pregnancy for the toucher. Something like that.

I don't agree with a number of Elisabeth's opinions, but it goes without saying who is the more intelligent of the two.

True. Rosie needs to present her arguments in a more intelligent fashion.

Just reported -
ABC announced Rosie will not be
returning to the show.

She won't bother to fulfill her last
3 weeks under contract.


Cowardly.

She can dish it out day after day,
and one time, lowly Elizabeth responds
back in the same tone Rosie uses - loud
and blunt - and Rosie bails.

Off to MSNBC or CNN or CBS or some place
for some short lived tv show.

Wow, I guess it wasn't scripted after all. Rosie's not cowardly, though. If she or her writer at her direction were defacing pictures of Elisabeth, then maybe Rosie was fired on the spot, and rightfully so. But I don't see that being Rosie's style either. Maybe she really was offended in her view (pun intended) that Elisabeth didn't stick up for her, but the way Fox reported Rosie's prior comments, it was a reasonable belief that she thought our troops are terrorists, though, so I don't see Elisabeth being wrong.

I can't believe I'm posting about that dumb show.

Exactly. How Fox reported it. Which usually doesn't jibe with reality. To me, by watching the The View clip, it was clear Rosie was talking about the administration not the troops.

That's why I had to qualify it! :D

My gut reaction is that Barbara Walters was ultra-offended by Wednesday and blamed Rosie, or threw Rosie under a bus because Elisabeth is under contract and is staying past next month. I think Barbara was behind getting rid of Rosie to begin with (offering intentionally far less than what Rosie would ever take).

Funny that Rosie and The Donald both bit the dust the same week. (Though both will surely once again "grace" American TV). I wonder if The Donald is still trying to "get some money out of Rosie's fat ass". :devil:

When I think of Elisabeth intelligent isn't the first word that comes to mind. She's a close minded nut case, who's equated gay marriage to people marrying toasters, and was scared of learning about breast feeding. She's certifiable.

I don't agree with how much she's up Bush's arse and defends everything Republican but she really did stand her ground against Rosie. I was a bit shocked because this was the first time Rosie seemed to back down. Maybe her feelings were hurt?

Helen Lawson

Yes, maybe her feelings were hurt. FWIW, one of the fags I'm usually stuck with watches the show almost every day. He told me it looked totally staged to him, that Rosie's been bitching on and off recently about not really wanting to hang around this last month and Barbara put Elisabeth up to this to force a blow up so Rosie could just walk now. It sounds a little extended to me, but who knows. Now we have conspiracy theories about the View!

Rosie pulled her punches because Liz is pregnant. Rosie is a veteran of comedy clubs--I don't think she gets her feelings easily hurt. She said it herself during the program--that she didn't want to argue because it would be spun that she was picking on Liz. Now it's being spun that little Liz gave her a knock out punch, and that Rosie can dish, but can't take it nonsense. Rosie can't win. :rolleyes:

One can be wrong but still be somewhat intelligent ;) She is fairly well spoken and can back up her point - even if her point is ridiculous, and she backs it up with further ridiculousness.

I'm not calling Rosie dumb, but she could work on her debate skills. Rosie has issues staying on point, and then takes or makes things personal.

You must not watch the show very mush because Hasselbitch is the dumbest one up there, she never support any of her claims. The best thing that she comes up with is "Clinton slept with Monica", everything that talk about the something political this is her stance. She always goes off topic and just start spit out crazy ass shit, she is a very poor debater.:help:

It's also funny that some of you think that Silverstone was wrong but she didn't do anything different then Hasselbitch. They were both expressing ther opinions.
