Hasselbeck explained: "I had a tumour in my abdomen, Doctor said, 'You've got to get it out by the end of the month. We don't like how it looks.' I was facing something that potentially could have gone either way."

Despite the criticism, O'Donnell also has some very powerful supporters.
Since the first mention of Rosie O’Donnell for one of the free chairs on The View next season, controversy has raged. Not because of O’Donnell’s presence, ethical or political beliefs, mind you, or at least not directly. Mostly, it was based on O’Donnell’s minor disagreement with former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, which led Hasselbeck to publicly slam O’Donnell on her return announcement. Hasselbeck that O’Donnell “spit in the face of our military” and “the face of her own network”. Since then, O’Donnell has found a supporter in the face of Sherri Shepherd, who is leaving The View next season and most recently, in fellow comedian, actress and host, Jenny McCarthy.
McCarthy voiced her enthusiastic endorsement this week.
McCarthy had some particularly kind words for her colleague and felt that The View would benefit from the new addition.

Things get heated as Joy Behar weighs in on the Hasselbeck-O'Donnell conflict.
Wait, what’s happening over on The View? This is meant to be our relaxing daytime viewing, but recently, after the rumoured appointment of Rosie O’Donnell to the panel, daggers have been flying – in the form or some uncalled for comments.
Hasselbeck wasn't really enjoying the view after O'Donnell's tentative return.
It all started with the tentative plans to bring O’Donnell back to The View.

On the face of it, Jenny McCarthy seems a reasonable choice to host 'The View,' though do a bit of digging and whole thing looks shaky, at best.
Jenny McCarthy's anti-vaccine views have been cast into the spotlight once more after the former Playboy model and actress was named as the replacement for Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar on The View. McCarthy's son Evan was diagnosed with autism back in 2005, while her marriage to director John Mallory Asher ended shortly afterwards.
The problem is, McCarthy did the rounds on America's biggest television shows at the time, claiming vaccinations caused her son to develop autism - this despite there being a minimal evidence to support such a claim.
In fact, the only real study that linked the administration of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) with autism was undertaken by Andrew Wakefield. The British surgeon has since been banned from practicing medicine in the United Kingdom.

Barbara Walters has gone on the record as saying Elisabeth Hasselbeck will not be leaving The View.
Barbara Walters has attempted to placate the intense rumors concerning 'The View,' with the veteran broadcaster insisting Elisabeth Hasselbeck will not be leaving the show despite reports that suggest her outspoken conservative views is putting off viewers.

Say what you want about Chris Brown … no, seriously, say what you want about Chris Brown. Nothing is too harsh for a man whose malevolent glint in his eyes is but scientific proof away from being the pin point of a black hole through which all human decency in the western world is currently falling through. The unrepentant women-beater of course left Twitter over the weekend, following a spat with comedy writer Jenny Johnson which saw him write at one point: “take them teeth out when u Sucking my d**k H-E."
Johnson did start it, but in all honesty you’re not going to find anyone at Contact feeling for Brown who has achieved the quite extraordinarily despicable feat of turning the events of three years ago –where he assaulted Rihanna for around 45 minutes on the eve of the Grammys - into a marketing strategy to get him more attention than ever. Anyway, with the artist who no one of any good taste should refer to as Breezy now off Twitter, it was left to – for the purposes of this story – the women of The View to give their thoughts on the spat.
"I think it's disgusting, first of all," Elisabeth Hasselbeck said, according to E! Online "But also, it seems like verbal rape to me. And I think at some point there's gotta be a point where Twitter should ban anyone who writes anything forever on there and you should identify yourself." Whoopi Goldberg disagreed with the term “verbal rape”, saying that they were both verbally assaulting each other and adding "I have to say, if you're gonna mess with him [Brown], you have to expect to get your head handed to you.” And how might he do that, Whoopi? By strangling you with a seat belt whilst pummelling your ribcage? The Mayan apocalypse takes place on December 21, 2012, hopefully.
