It seems that "The View" is experiencing some behind-the-scenes shake-ups. Joy Behar announced on Friday that she would leave the show after serving as a co-host for 16 years, because she plans to focus on her stand-up comedy and writing a play. Now, reports have surfaced that Elisabeth Hasselbeck may also be leaving "The View."

"The viewers they polled all said she was too extreme and right wing. People did not watch the show because of Elisabeth. So they told her yesterday her contract would not be renewed," a source told Us Weekly.

However, ABC tells Zap2it that the rumors of Hasselbeck's exit are just rumors. "Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a valued member of 'The View' and has a long term contract," says an ABC rep.

Hasselbeck has been part of "The View's" panel for ten years, taking over after Lisa Ling's departure. »
