Barbara Walters: Elisabeth Hasselbeck "Essential To The View"


Elisabeth Hasselbeck is essential to The View, or at least that is what Barbara Walters believes. When asked by the LA Times why she sometimes shouts over Hasselbeck, Walters said: 


"I think Elisabeth is so essential to the show. But you know, Elisabeth talks very quickly and she's very well informed. And sometimes you have to say, "Let me talk." That is somewhat the result of having five women with strong opinions. What we don't do as much as we used to -- it used to drive me bats -- is talk over each other."

Who do you believe is essential to The View?
