Addressing buzz that O’Donnell is thisclose to returning to The View, a vacationing Hasselbeck phoned her current colleagues at Fox & Friends on Wednesday morning to weigh in on the development. Spoiler Alert: She’s fit to be tied!
“What could ruin a vacation more than to hear news like this?” she harrumphed on air. “Here comes to The View the very woman who spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network, and, really, in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there.”
Hasselbeck went on to allege that O’Donnell told her she “produced” the recent View reunion show that aired during Barbara Walters’ farewell week, claiming that she marched around the set “with a lot of control.”
The rambling, borderline-embarrassing tirade comes as reports say O’Donnell is finalizing a seven-figure deal to reclaim her old perch at ABC’s struggling chattiest.
