Elisabeth Hasselbeck Leaves 'The View' For 'Fox And Friends'

Elisabeth Hasselbeck walked arm-in-arm with Barbara Walters as she made her way onto the set for her last day on The View Wednesday.  

Hasselbeck said on The View, "The last 10 years have been extraordinary!"

Walters also wished her a warm farewell, but made a little slip, which she quickly corrected.

Walters said, "I always want what's best for you. You know how I feel about you. I'm happy that you're going. No! I'm not happy that you're going."

But today people are asking, did Hasselbeck, who's known for her conservative views, leave on her own, or was she pushed out?  

TV Guide's Steve Battaglio told INSIDE EDITION, "Elisabeth was told in March that her contract was not going to be renewed beyond this season. She chose not to go public with it, and waited until she found another job."

Hasselbeck will be moving on to Fox and Friends on the Fox News Channel starting in the fall. She'll take Gretchen Carlson's place. Carlson is getting her own show on Fox.

Carlson said on Fox and Friends, "I'm thrilled to be able to be moving to my own show coming up in September."

So, who will fill Hasselbeck's shoes on The View? Jenny McCarthy is reportedly in serious talks to join the show. But Barbara Walters only had this to say.

"You're going to leave a big void at this table, we know this. And we are not going to be filling it very soon, okay?"
