Elisabeth Hasslebeck And Joy Behar Throw Down

October 23rd, 2008 // 58 Comments

There’s word that a lot went down backstage at wacky molestation revelation forum The View yesterday. Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck
reportedly did a lot of hissing at each other. Actually, it sounds like
Behar went off and Hasselbeck took it because Behar is a strong bitch
and I can see her punching someone.Supposedly it all started over pony lover Elisabeth wearing a John McCain t-shirt on the air, and that inspired some fracas on yesterday’s show.

Anyway, Hasselbeck later supposedly gave Joy some lip about promoting her stand-up comedy act on the show. This didn’t sit well with Behar. Backstage, she reportedly told her “I will burn you down” (pyromania threats!) and to “shut the f*ck up” and stormed off. Lizzie supposedly stood there in shock and not one heifer came up to comfort her. Babwa was probably reading wistfully reading the AARP magazine in her dressing room and rolling her eyes upon hearing all the commotion.

Let’s face it, someone’s needed to tell that donkey to can it for awhile. Behar deserves some sort of recognition like a plaque and a Chile’s gift certificate.

    If Joy and the rest can spout off their opinions, then so can Elizabeth. Someone should tell Joy that she is not funny, is fat, and obnoxious. Elizabeth has nothing on her, she is just as bad if not worse. Her big mouth and big body needs to calm the Fuck down.
    She is the main reason I can’t stomach the show. She is a bully, and shoves her opinion down everyones throat.

  2. T-Bone

    Typical of liberal Democrats…they can say and think whatever they want, but the minute someone expresses an opposing opinion all hell breaks loose. Such hypocrisy! No one would get upset if Joy sported an Obama t-shirt. Everyone would just laugh it off. But it’s a McCain t-shirt, so it’s a crime. I give Elizabeth A LOT of credit for putting up with all of this bullying. She pretty much stands alone, which is a heck of a lot more impressive than all these other wolves and their liberal pack mentality.

  3. Anna

    The show is called the View. Whether it’s done with a t-shirt or verbally, all the ladies have a right to share their opinions. Or promote their candidates or comedy show. The verbal assault bestowed upon Elizabeth everyday, I could do without. Joy is just pissed that Elizabeth called her on her shit. Boo Hoo

  4. anna

    oh poor joy. she can dish it out but obviously she can’t take it. if elisabeth wants to wear a mccain t-shirt then all power to her. this is america, joy, where everyone is entitled to an opinion whether you like it or not.

  5. Jennie

    Get real. Elizabeth is judgmental, narrow-minded, condescending and a hypocrite in the eyes of God. She is everything that the moral majority (Sarah Palin) stands for. My way or burn in H___.
    How do I know?? I grew up in an Assembly of God church and this is how the congregation acts. Superior over everyone else. There is NO ROOM for compromise or understanding or forgiveness.

  6. sara anne

    I love Joy and Whoopie. Elizabeth, not so much. If EH could just ONCE get off her high GOP horse and consider her party may not have all the answers, she would be tolerable. Right now she makes The View unwatchable.
    By the way you can’t talk rationally to EH because she shuts down and back talks like a 12 year old.

  7. laura m

    Believe me, Joy can dish it out AND she can also take it. If she is wrong or misquotes, JB is the first to admit her mistake. Elizabeth wouldn’t say I’m sorry or I was wrong if her childrens life depended on it. EH is hard core GOP/Sarah Palin all the way.
    JOY ROCKS !!!!

  8. ally

    They should change the name of the show to The Liberal View. I can’t stand the way those women cackle and shout over each other. It’s too annoying and Joy Behar is the most irritating of all of them. I can’t stand to watch it. I decided to tune in for the McCain’s visit and Joy was tapping her pen and sticking her tongue in her cheek the whole time.
    I knew they wouldn’t be gushing over them like they were to Michelle Obama. This show is not intellectual, informative nor entertaining. If they have to fight and incite to get ratings, that’s pathetic. Might as well tune in to Jerry Springer.

  9. maddie

    Typical of conservative christian GOP. They can say, do or think anything they want, but the minute a non-republican expresses an opinion or a different idea, the GOP’s start spewing hateful lies. How very “Christian” of Elizabeth and her followers. Shall we count the vicious and downright hateful ignorant remarks that EH will not condemn her party on. EH is pitiful and so is every other Christian who doesn’t speak up.

  10. leslie

    Well, it looks like Elizabeth let loose all her well mannered, born again Christian girlfriends on Joy. Well played Elizabeth. This way you can act all bullied on and put down. Poor EH. Now she can go spread her I’m superior Christian attitude on those poor sinners below her. To bad EH is the face of the Bible Belt, cause it’s not pretty.

  11. Jenn

    The View sucks because they didn’t balance the hosts at all. There are 5 liberal democrats and 1 conservative republican which makes them totally out of touch with the American public. The country is 50/50 split. REMEMBER?

  12. MER

    Joy was such a sourpuss when Bill O Reilly was on yesterday too. She was so crabby because she knows he is no pushover like EH. Lets Redistibute some of her wealth and see how she likes it..

  13. Tom Nunnery

    I grew up in an evangelical setting including a church. It has taken me a lot of years to overcome the hypocrisy in this smothering enviroment.The comments made by Ms.Hasslebeck me of this same reasoning and nonsense.

  14. STUPID LIES

    Whoopi: racist Democrat
    Joy: fat, obnoxious Democrat
    Babs: liberal media Democrat
    Sherry: stupid Democrat
    Rosie: loud, obnoxious, nasty Democrat
    Elizabeth: attractive, young Republican set up to be attacked every week.

  15. Liberal Lover

    I loved how Joy and Barb stood up to O’Reilly on yesterdays show. He totally tries to take over, but the ladies would not let him. And Elizabeth sat there with a high school girl crush on Bill. How sick!!!! And this crap about the country being 50/50, DREAM ON girlfriend.
    That is McPalin cramming wishful thinking down your throat.
    As Rosie would say………….. Delusional!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

  16. A Mom

    I am a conservative Christian mom and I am appalled at how Elizabeth Hasselbeck and Sarah Palin think they represent ME. I take pride in my family, my beliefs and my church. I am a born again Christian and have been one since I was 16 yrs old. I will never understand how true Christians can whole heartily stand behind so called GOP Christians who knowingly twist facts and preach hate. It’s appalling and Elizabeth is right there with them. Elizabeth needs to go back and read her Bible right now!!

  17. tamara

    I love that some republican thinks the country is split 50-50. I don’t agree and that is MY view. I do think the View needs to bring on another host . Maybe a conservative liberal and a liberal conservative. And how about a view point from an Independent,
    Socialist and of course the Green party. All would be good.
    The reason so many have a problem with Elizabeth is that she is very narrow minded and she screeches.

  18. andrea

    Joy and Elizabeth throw down. Please. Elizabeth wishes someone would throw one her way. That way she can cry and whine and pout and be a total victim and run to her republican friends and tell them how mean all the non-Christian girls are. You know because us Christian girls are nice and polite, never tell lies, are as pure as the driven snow, love our country and would never ever spread hateful rumors. Just ask Lizzy’s new BFF Sarah Palin. She will tell ya, don’t ya think?
    Oh and Joy invited Sarah to The View. That was really nice.

  19. theoriginalb*otch

    @stupid lies, I’m sure Rush and Faux News are more to your liking so I have to ask, why do you watch? And Lizobiotch attractive, uhmmmm, your opinion. I say, Okie plain, airheaded, narrow-minded, twit. But then again, I’m sure she’s hot shiz by Neo-con standards.

  20. What A MOM SAYS

    There is no way you can be a Christian and vote for a man who believes in partial birth abortion. No way. If you think what EH says is worse than that then I think YOU need to go read YOUR Bible. Elizabeth is just standing up for what’s right.

  21. Katie

    I do not for one minute believe Elizabeth and Joy are friends away from the View table. They are both polar opposites and have zero in common. I think Joy would be fun to hang out with, but Elizabeth with that ginormous stick up her b___ would be a real downer. Too whiny.

  22. Glenn

    The BEST thing that ever happened to Elizabeth’s career was:
    1-Rosie
    2-Joy
    3-Sarah Palin

    Without these 3 women Elizabeth would be nothing but another fake dumb blond from a reality show. She owes her so-called career to them because they put her in the headlines.
    Rosie and Joy will always be loved because they are who they are and they have great careers on their OWN terms.
    Sarah will hopefully slink back to Alaska. SOON please.
    Elizabeth, say your prayers.

  23. Marylou

    The View was the only show to stand up to the McCains and ask real questions that the public wanted real answers to.
    WAY TO GO BARBARA . YOU ROCK.
    Everyone other journalist was asking what they had for brunch.
    WHATEVER??????????????
    SO Barbara, Whoopie, Joy, and Sherri – Keep up the good work.

    Do not ever let Elizabeth BFF’s break you down because they will say ANYTHING to get their soulless word out no matter how hateful.
    It’s a shame, EH gives good God fearing people a bad name.

  24. Anne's sister

    Elizabeth Hasslebeck is such a fake and a phony. OMG She turns more people off. I mean she acts all coy and nice w/ guests. Get her on her mothership (GOP rally-fundraisers) and the TRUE Elizabeth comes out. Nice EH. You back stab with the best of them. Could it be your taking lessons from Ann Coulter to really throw down with Joy

  25. Salina

    Joy deserves credit for even putting up with annoying people like Elizabeth, O’Reilly,Hannity,Cindy McCain, ect. You can be a conservative and NOT A COMPLETE JERK !!!
    Look at Sherri. She is a real role model for all Christians everywhere.
    Are you listening Elizabeth ??? Do you get it ???

  26. billybob

    Bill O”Reilly makes everyone around him a sourpuss because he is such an arrogant jerk. Joy was hilarious. Admit it, everything Joy said was something you were thinking about – how spiteful Bill O”Reilly is.
    Let’s talk about wealth, O”Reilly’s in fact.
    Yeah I didn’t think so.

  27. Esther Evans

    It is very difficult to understand how the show has the name , “The
    View”, and then when one person gives their opinion and beliefs a
    is attacked! Something is not right with the whole show and I just don’t watch anymore. My husband read it on the internet and told me what happened that is why I am writing. I always loved Whoopi and Barbara Walters the other ladies I didn”t know much about. It is upsetting that every time Elizabeth says something you all give her a look of evil. Wow ! she has a right to her own opinion and a right to feel and live the way she likes just like all of you. My parents came from cuba in the 1960s for freedom because Fidel Castro declared himself a communist and they came here to the best country in the world.By the way they came legally and they raised us to respect other peoples opinion even when you don’t agree. They always told us that we should never abuse our freedom because someday we may lose it .

  28. Rik Bollman

    Hey Jenn — you’re out of TOUCH!

    “Jenn says:
    The View sucks because they didn’t balance the hosts at all. There are 5 liberal democrats and 1 conservative republican which makes them totally out of touch with the American public. The country is 50/50 split. REMEMBER?”

    uhhhhh no. The country is not 50/50 split. It’s a complex split based on socio-economic, gender-based, and other factors. For example, it’s not surprising that 58% of the richest 20% of americans are GOP, and only 37% of the poorest 20%. To slice it up as 50/50 is ignorant.

    Rik
    Screaming liberal asshole.

  29. who cares

    1st amendment’s right of free speech is pretty cool so long as you espouse a liberal view point. 1984, anyone?

  30. Kevin

    To :what a Mom says –

    WOW just a little up tight and Judgmental. Let me guess. Your a Conservative Christian Mom. In your world, I am going to burn in h___ because I am voting for Obama.
    I choose to love others as God would. I do not judge or condemn. I am a life long Christian. Do you realize you are speaking to many many people with that unfortunate message of yours.
    Get your facts straight about Obama and McCain before you lash out and condemn others with your version of the truth. That is of course if you REALLY want to know the truth.Just so you know, I was voting for McCain until the they decided to turn this into a smear and nasty campaign.
    I

  31. Connie

    I too grew up within an ultra conservative church and community. None of this crazy, nasty, “Christian” Sarah Palin dialog surprises me. In that world you are either 100% with them or you are nothing – a sinner. Elizabeth knows this is how it works. The conservative Palin-Eizabeth type base is so full of hypocritical people that it’s scary. They will do and say anything to support their cause in the name of God.
    Very Christian and God like. Right Elizabeth.

  32. carl

    What is wrong with you people throwing all these personal insults Joys way. Calm down.
    Elizabeth is supposed to be the super nice church girl role model, above making fun of others and putting them down.
    Is the screaming right blasting you for know being “red” enough on the show.
    I think Elizabeth is a hypocrite.

  33. kimberly

    I love The View.
    I love the way they can talk about anything and agree to disagree.
    Until Elizabeth and her uber sensitive political view pts come screaming out trough the tv.
    I’m sorry but she is just so intolerable of ANYTHING that is not GOP.
    Whoopie, Barbara, Joy and Sherri ALL look at different sides and do their research. But Elizabeth has only one train of thought and refuses to even acknowledge some other political pov. She does not listen to anyone.
    So I will be happy when the election is over and hopefully Elizabeth will mellow out and be fun again.

  34. elenor

    Partial birth abortion my ___. YOU need to go back and read the facts before you start throwing your high and mighty nonsense around. YOU have NO RIGHT to judge anyone!!!!!
    Telling someone they are NOT a Christian.
    What is that about???

  35. amber

    So Joy calls out Elizabeth on her crafty t-shirt, and they are now in a cat fight.Go figure.
    If you don’t agree with Elizabeth these days watch out. The moral majority will track you down. These conservatives stick together. Elizabeth and her BFF Sarah Palin are really trying to be the new face of the republicans so there is alot of pressure to get the message out no matter what you need to do.
    They are just plain scary.
    Joy is a tough lady. I’ll always be on her side.

  36. another MOM says WOW

    From” what a mom says” -
    Anyone voting for Obama is not a Christain.

    WOW
    I’m really ashamed for her.
    Is this what elizabeth says, too

  37. silly girls

    I heard The View was once again in turmoil because of Elizabeth. She is having a nasty fight with Joy. Didn’t she do that with Rosie, too. Wow Elizabeth, your and your croonies must be so proud.
    Well my hats off to Joy. This is Joy’s show not Elizabeth. I mean yes, Barbara owns the show, but Joy is the heart and soul. So Elizabeth, back off your commie comments or move over to Fox. The one thing I find comforting about Elizabeth is that she is soooooooo
    predictable.
    So if they protest to much then it must be true.

  38. dianne

    Elizabeth and Joy are NOT friends because as a Sarah Palin BFF your not allowed to have friends or family who don’t believe exactly as you do. Just saying. Mark my words, Elizabeth will not be around much longer on The View.

  39. jeanette

    Please Joy, do not let Elizabeth bring you down. You are the show. Elizabeth is like an accessory, you know like sofa cushions. They are nice, but you don’t really need them AND you can change to some other fabric at any time because they will get old and stale and boring. Like Elizabeth.

  40. patty

    Barbara needs to “allow” Elizabeth to move on over to Fox. Then replace her with another not so obsessed republican that can listen to others. Kind of like Sherri. Then everyone can learn from each other.
    Right now Elizabeth is acting like a stubborn, spoiled teenager.
    It’s ruining the vibe of the show. Also reminds me of what happened w/ Rosie. I still miss Rosie.

  41. edith in queens

    It seems to me Elizabeth is getting bolder with her outrageous fanatical support of McCain-Palin. She reminds of the brown-nosers in high school.
    I was the person who was not 100% sure. I know what I want to hear. I know what don’t want to hear. And right now I do not want to hear anymore from Elizabeth. I am also tired of the trash talking from Palin and anger from McCain.
    So there. I now enjoy hearing from Joy.

  42. Adamantia Claus

    And yet there are ALOT of people who think just like her. These are the people who started the real estate insanity, the over development and the credit and banking scandals. But she’ll never admit or acknowledge any of this, she will not LOOK at the situation because it doesnt effect HER personally. What’s happening out here to real Americans doesnt mean anything to her, and I fear that most of her opinions she espouses are her spouse’s, and her parents and poor little dim witted cheerleader that she is – she’s yet to actually sit down and ponder and reflect or research ANY OTHER OPINION.
    Hell, even I watch the so called Faux News GOP/right wing pundits, I occasionally listen to Rush Vicodin Addict, and when my blood pressure is stable I listen to Bill O’Reilly because I prefer my racists out in the open where I can see them and I WANNA know what they’re thinking. Their fear is palpable, you smell it on them like a stink, they want to keep the right to steal and lie and be a hypocrite. The funny thing is, if Elizabeth really spent any time the real high up in the halls of power, she’d be appalled, but the truth is, if she wasnt famous the only time she would of ever been in contact or acknowledged by these types of GOP powerbrokers is when they needed her vote. They would never associate with the majority of the fools in this country who mark themselves as “red”, you couldnt get past the security to get to the country club, to gated community, etc, – that’s why they had to steal all that money so they dont have to associate and mingle with people not of their financial or social strata. Its always funny when those who press their noses against the windows watching the rich, slavishly devote themselves to their welfare – as if they’d share it with the likes of you.
    As soon as this election is over, and if (God help us if Barack doesnt win)”they” win, the GOP will very quickly return to sticking their hand in your pockets, into your child’s future, into your gas tanks and will return to giving you thought at all.

  43. who cares

    Seriously – all of you commenters are bashing EH for being narrow-minded and you neglect to listen to yourselves – you too are narrow-minded, just like EH. Unbelievable. Hypocrites!

  44. Who Cares

    I forgot to mention that you’re all crazy like EH and JB too. Nutso! But apparently, it’s OK to be liberal and crazy but not conservative and crazy.

  45. STEVEN and Sherie

    That’s so typical. Seriously. Call Elizabeth out on being narrow minded and all of a sudden your a crazy hypocrite liberal.!?
    OK. OK
    What’s not OK – DANGEROUS and crazy conservatives or liberals. You know, the ones who promote hate or don’t stand against it when they see it happening. The ones who turn a blind eye and just shrug their shoulders and say I didn’t do it. It’s wrong no matter who is spewing the hate message. This is exactly what Elizabeth is doing. NOTHING. Guilty by association, perhaps. You bet.
    Calling out EH for her narrow mindedness is so not being a hypocrite. But then it’s another GOP tactic, turn it around on someone who dosen’t believe like you.
    Funny thing, I am a conservative. I just happen to walk around with my eyes wide open!!!
    Call me crazy

    Read the article below. This is really amazing….look at the prediction in 1999 about the risk the mortgage industry was taking and what would happen if it failed…the government would have to step in and bail them out! I guess this is no surprise to many in the industry. I think some oversight on taking risk with taxpayers money is warranted in this case! We never even had a say if they should do this, and they knew if it failed, our tax dollars would have to pay for it!! As Brad Bolinger is famous for saying…’Unbelievable, but not surprising’! Overwhelming greed will ruin this country if we do not keep it in check.

    Fannie Mae Eases Credit To Aid Mortgage Lending

    By STEVEN A. HOLMES
    Published: New York Times – September 30, 1999
    In a move that could help increase home ownership rates among minorities and low-income consumers, the Fannie Mae Corporation is easing the credit requirements on loans that it will purchase from banks and other lenders.
    The action, which will begin as a pilot program involving 24 banks in 15 markets — including the New York metropolitan region — will encourage those banks to extend home mortgages to individuals whose credit is generally not good enough to qualify for conventional loans. Fannie Mae officials say they hope to make it a nationwide program by next spring.
    Fannie Mae, the nation’s biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits.
    In addition, banks, thrift institutions and mortgage companies have been pressing Fannie Mae to help them make more loans to so-called subprime borrowers. These borrowers whose incomes, credit ratings and savings are not good enough to qualify for conventional loans, can only get loans from finance companies that charge much higher interest rates — anywhere from three to four percentage points higher than conventional loans.
    ”Fannie Mae has expanded home ownership for millions of families in the 1990′s by reducing down payment requirements,” said Franklin D. Raines, Fannie Mae’s chairman and chief executive officer. ”Yet there remain too many borrowers whose credit is just a notch below what our underwriting has required who have been relegated to paying significantly higher mortgage rates in the so-called subprime market.”
    Demographic information on these borrowers is sketchy. But at least one study indicates that 18 percent of the loans in the subprime market went to black borrowers, compared to 5 per cent of loans in the conventional loan market.
    In moving, even tentatively, into this new area of lending, Fannie Mae is taking on significantly more risk, which may not pose any difficulties during flush economic times. But the government-subsidized corporation may run into trouble in an economic downturn, prompting a government rescue similar to that of the savings and loan industry in the 1980′s.
    ”From the perspective of many people, including me, this is another thrift industry growing up around us,” said Peter Wallison a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. ”If they fail, the government will have to step up and bail them out the way it stepped up and bailed out the thrift industry.”
    Under Fannie Mae’s pilot program, consumers who qualify can secure a mortgage with an interest rate one percentage point above that of a conventional, 30-year fixed rate mortgage of less than $240,000 — a rate that currently averages about 7.76 per cent. If the borrower makes his or her monthly payments on time for two years, the one percentage point premium is dropped.
    Fannie Mae, the nation’s biggest underwriter of home mortgages, does not lend money directly to consumers. Instead, it purchases loans that banks make on what is called the secondary market. By expanding the type of loans that it will buy, Fannie Mae is hoping to spur banks to make more loans to people with less-than-stellar credit ratings.
    Fannie Mae officials stress that the new mortgages will be extended to all potential borrowers who can qualify for a mortgage. But they add that the move is intended in part to increase the number of minority and low income home owners who tend to have worse credit ratings than non-Hispanic whites.
    Home ownership has, in fact, exploded among minorities during the economic boom of the 1990′s. The number of mortgages extended to Hispanic applicants jumped by 87.2 per cent from 1993 to 1998, according to Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. During that same period the number of African Americans who got mortgages to buy a home increased by 71.9 per cent and the number of Asian Americans by 46.3 per cent.
    In contrast, the number of non-Hispanic whites who received loans for homes increased by 31.2 per cent.
    Despite these gains, home ownership rates for minorities continue to lag behind non-Hispanic whites, in part because blacks and Hispanics in particular tend to have on average worse credit ratings.
    In July, the Department of Housing and Urban Development proposed that by the year 2001, 50 percent of Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Mac’s portfolio be made up of loans to low and moderate-income borrowers. Last year, 44 percent of the loans Fannie Mae purchased were from these groups.
    The change in policy also comes at the same time that HUD is investigating allegations of racial discrimination in the automated underwriting systems used by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to determine the credit-worthiness of credit applicants.

  48. whocares

    Steven:

    When you have commenters saying that all GOP members want to take your money and keep it for themselves, that they are money grubbing psychos, God help me of McCain wins… ect. ect. I consider that to be narrow-minded, hypocritical, and crazy JUST like EH and JB.

    On the flip side: saying that all Dems are non-christian baby killers is completely crazy as well.

    So Steven – put some thought into it before you bash.

  49. lyndsee

    Well there are witnesses to the Joy and EH fight. Once again EH acting like a spoiled teen and pouting/shouting to Joy backstage.
    Nobody, I’m talking no one defended EH because she has been out of control. The EH claim to fame is trying to take down 2 of The Views co-hosts.
    Joy, girlfriend just step back and let EH go down in flames. Your right, EH makes a fool out herself every time she opens her mouth.
    The viewers are tired of the Hasselbeck blah, blah, blah.

  50. sara j

    ALL TRUE!!!! ALL TRUE!!!!
    Elizabeth Hasselbeck is out of control and out of line at The View.
    The powers that be want this fight contained until after the election, so EH isn’t going anywhere, yet.
    Word is the crew and cohosts are tired of EH and the relentless HATE message she keeps spouting. EH will not even consider looking into actual facts she is so enamored w/ Sarah Palin.

    So the spin is that they are friends on and off camera. Don’t believe it.
    This is all witnessed by people backstage.
