Rosie O’Donnell dubbed Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s return to “The View” as “strange” and insinuated the conservative personality was the reason she no longer watched the show.
“I watched it,” the comedian, 60, said in a TikTok video Thursday, referring to Hasselbeck’s appearance on the ABC talk show one day prior.
“I remembered why I don’t want to watch it with her anymore. Her little Post-It notes, I don’t know,” she added.Rosie O’Donnell said watching Elisabeth Hasselbeck on “The View” reminded her of why she stopped watching the show.rosie/TikTok
O’Donnell was referring to the “Fox & Friends” alum’s decision to criticize President Biden with Post-It notes during a segment.
“Americans can’t afford your America,” read the first, followed by, “Gas prices hurt us.”
The “Survivor” alum followed those notes up with another, reading, “Recession is real” and “Even though I did not vote for you, you have my prayers.”Hasselbeck returned to “The View” as a temporary co-host.Disney General Entertainment Con
O’Donnell called Hasselbeck’s move a “strange” one, concluding, “Yeah. Um, hope you’re having a good day. And if you saw that yesterday, hope you recovered.”

Hasselbeck exited in 2013 — and she had choice words for O’Donnell when the “SMILF” alum returned the following year in her absence.
“What could ruin a vacation more than to hear news like this?” Hasselbeck said in a 2014 “Fox & Friends” appearance.
“Talk about not securing the border,” she said at the time. “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.”The former “View” co-hosts worked together from 2006 to 2007.Disney General Entertainment Con
When O’Donnell spoke to Variety five years later about previously having a “little bit of a crush” on Hasselbeck, the former “Look for Less” host called her comments “disturbing” and said she “immediately” began praying about them.
“[Hasselbeck] was so afraid of the concept of a lesbian having a crush on her that she had to go directly to Jesus, do not pass go, do not collect $200,” O’Donnell joked in a March 2019 Instagram Live. “She kept on calling on Jesus.
“Yeah, Jesus was going to save her from the gay who thought she was cute!”Filed under celebrity feuds , celebrity social media , elisabeth hasselbeck , rosie odonnell , the view , 8/5/22

Former Nick star Josh Peck calls sobriety the bedrock of his life
More On: josh peck Former Nick star Josh Peck calls Jeanette McCurdy ‘incredibly brave’ Josh Peck’s wife, Paige O’Brien, is pregnant with their second baby Josh Peck reveals he’s not friends with Drake Bell — and hasn’t been for a while Josh Peck reveals past addiction to a ‘buffet’ of drugs and alcohol
Josh Peck says sobriety has been “wonderful” and a “foundation that has kept me really anchored.”
The “Drake & Josh” star, 35, developed a drug and alcohol problem after dropping 127 pounds and entered rehab in 2008.
“I’m lucky to have found recovery through a 12 steps program almost 14 years ago and it’s something that I still do regularly to this day,” he told Page Six in a recent interview. “It gives me a lot of structure in my life. It’s really the bedrock of my life and from it, all these wonderful things have been built.”
The Manhattan-born actor who wrote about his battle with drugs and alcohol in the memoir, “Happy People Are Annoying,” explained that sobriety has also “introduced me to a level of spirituality and how to embrace stoicism and ancient truths. It’s given me a foundation that has kept me really anchored.”Peck starred in the Nick show “Drake & Josh.”©Nickelodeon Network/Courtesy E
Peck jokingly added that his mother — who raised him by herself — and his wife Paige O’Brien “make sure I don’t get out of line.”
The Nickelodeon alum can currently be seen as a Rabbi helping a congregant prepare for his bar-mitzvah in the Netflix movie, “13: The Musical” and says that he is “incredibly proud to be Jewish. I think it’s something that as I get older has become more important to me.”Peck plays a rabbi in “13: The Musical.”Netflix
One reason Peck was eager to take a role in the movie was to work with director Tamra Davis, who directed the documentary, “Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child” about the artist who died of a heroin overdose in 1988.
“Jean-Michel Basquait is a personal hero of mine,” he explained, “so selfishly I just knew I would be nagging her on set asking her for Basquait stories.”

He and O’Brien are expecting their second child together and are already parents to a 3-year-old son, Max. Peck confesses that before Max’s birth he was terrified to become a father, having never met his own.
“Having a father in so many ways would have hopefully given me structure or a manual on being a dad,” he shared, “but thankfully, I had enough apostles in my life, my father-in-law, who I really look up to, and my brother from the Big Brother Jewish Foundation, Dan, who has been in my life since I was 8. I’m so lucky to have great men in my life that I could go to for counsel and advice and mirror the things they did so well with their kids.”Filed under josh peck , nickelodeon , sobriety , 8/14/22
