Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be leaving The View tomorrow and joining Fox & Friends in September, when Gretchen Carlson will get her own show.
The New York Post reports:
(Hasselbeck) will join Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on the Fox couch in mid-September.
...Current “FOX & Friends” co-host Gretchen Carlson will now anchor a one-hour daytime program beginning in early fall.
Something tells me Hasselbeck will not get along so well with Doocy and Kilmeade but we'll see.
She’s the only person who has ever been on the view that I never really liked. She’s like one of those actors that don’t care about turning in a good performance playing the good guy, but the passion they put into being a bad guy is almost disturbing.
I have no doubt she could be a nice person, probably because it’s not hard to be a nicer person than she comes across as on The View… But onscreen, she’s either an incredibly vicious person, or she’s half into it.
Then again, I thought the same thing about Carlson. She seemed like an intelligent, somewhat warm person outside of Fox, but what will we remember of her on-air? Panty shots and an almost bipolar persona.
Here’s what you should be nauseated about Victoria that women can only be a host of a television program if they look like they walked out of a modeling catalog. Right, left or center it doesn’t matter. They must please the men in charge of advertising who feel they need a playmate to attract viewership to sell their product. Those who don’t meet those standards need not apply.
Just think of the many capable women who never got the opportunity because of their personal appearance, while we men are judged differently and actually graded on our abilities and given a pass on what we look like.
Anyway, since Hasselbeck will be joining the curvy couch morons soon, I thought it would be appropriate to dish out this dose of light humor:
Q: What would you call four curvy couch blondes sitting together?
A: A wind tunnel!
BTW: What’s the over/under on whether Wretched Gretched even gets a show?
With all my snark,
NOTE TO GRETCHEN
You are too old for news broadcast. The male viewers prefer a younger blonde.
I’ll bet on the Jabba Ailes Money-Weeny she’ll fit right in.
