(Newser) – Another empty seat is coming up at The View: Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving the ABC talk show for a new gig on Fox and Friends, the network has confirmed. The departure comes as part of a shake-up that includes the exit of Joy Behar and the retirement of Barbara Walters, notes the Hollywood Reporter. Today will be Hasselbeck's last day on The View and there's no word yet on her replacement: Brooke Shields is rumored to be in the running, but former Playboy playmate and frequent guest co-host Jenny McCarthy is now in "serious talks" about joining the show, according to Us Weekly.

Won't miss her. If the girls like someone on the show, and they leave for greener pastures, they give them a little send-off with at least a cake, Elisabeth got nada. She didn't even wait until the end of the week to make Friday her last day. It would be interesting to know what was going on behind the scenes. :)

Being the token conservative on a liberal show is not worth the daily frustration.
