It’s funny, usually the person most likely to make us smack our forehead and scream at the TV while we’re watching The View is Elisabeth Hasselbeck, but Whoopi Goldberg, of all people, is starting to take her place as the person who says the dumbest things these days. Yesterday, Whoopi chose to defend Mel Gibson who, if you’ve heard his rants toward Oksana Grigorieva, does not deserve any sort of defense at all. “Having spent time with him in my house, with my kids, I can’t say he’s a racist. I don’t like what he’s done, make no mistake,” Whoopi told her co-hosts, and then said that alcohol makes people say stupid things, but then after that, she says she doesn’t think Mel was drunk while he was making all his racist, threatening statements. So…you figure out that logic, folks. Whether he was a charming houseguest or not, it’s pretty hard for us to imagine anyone who could forgive Mel for his crazy breakdown. Scarier still is how much we agree with Joy Behar these days.
View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck is being sued over her new book, The G-Free Diet, A Gluten Free Survival Guide. Susan Hassett, the self-published author of Living With Celiac Disease, claims Elisabeth stole her ideas after she mailed her a copy of her own book, along with a homemade cooking video, a personal note, a newspaper article, and a business card.

The chatty ladies of The View + Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt = drama! The Hills stars stopped by The View this morning to rap with Barbara Walters and the ladies about their botched courthouse wedding and their family drama.
Spencer revealed that he called off their courthouse wedding, which would have made their Mexican “wedding” official, because he had a “robbing feeling.” Heidi has always wanted a “princess” wedding with a traditional cake and dress, and apparently Spencer felt at the last minute that he was taking that away from her.
Suspicious as the rest of the world is, Barbara leaned in and asked, “Is this for real?” Heidi and Spencer delivered their perfectly pre-packaged answers: “I really want to get married,” said Heidi. “Everything on The Hills is real,” answered Spencer.
Although now they are allegedly planning the wedding of Heidi’s dreams, they have encountered some family drama, especially with Heidi’s mom. According to Spencer, Heidi’s mom “believes everything she reads,” and doesn’t know the real him.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg suggested the reality couple go spend a couple weeks with Heidi’s mom in Colorado, where she lives, but Spencer insisted that was impossible because “they don’t give us a day off without cameras.”
Whoopi then said that they need to demand for those days off. Nothing like a little Whoopi to knock some sense into Speidi. [Photo: Splash News Online]
We know, we know. You were all pumped for that show to finally have some drama-free moments, but sadly Elisabeth Hasselbeck ain’t going nowhere. After a lady-battle on Tuesday’s show, he pint-size conservative with the big ol’ mouth was rumored to be considering a leap over to Fox News where she’d surely be welcomed with open, George Bush loving arms, but her people say that’s just not true. “Elisabeth is passionate in her beliefs and enjoys being a part of this dynamic group of women and engaging in daily conversations.”
Translation: Elisabeth makes a crap-load of money and enjoys her cushy life that is fully funded by her “view.” We wouldn’t leave either, no matter how many times Barbara yelled at us. [LA Times. Photo: WireImage]
Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who spends so much time on The View yelling and crying that she belongs on The Hills, is possibly leaving the show. A source says that, “Elisabeth feels she can’t win at The View, but she’s been told by friends at FOX News that they’d find a spot for her without hesitation.”
Translation: E-Hass is sick of being the only conservative on the show. We can’t say we blame her for wanting to jump ship, it’s gotta be pretty exhausting wearing cute outfits and rattling on about John McCain for five hours a week. At least she’ll be the prettiest thing on Fox (after Geraldo Rivera, of course). [ONTD]
