An array of current and former Fox News personalities are defending Fox News CEO Roger Ailes against a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by one-time Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson. Everyone from The Five's Kimberly Guilfoyle to Sean Hannity have come to their boss's defense. Now Elizabeth Hasselbeck is weighing in on the suit.

Hasselbeck–who left The View to host Fox & Friends between 2013 and 2015–spoke with Entertainment Tonight regarding her experience with Ailes.

"Speaking from my personal experience, working for Roger Ailes and with Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade was by far the most rewarding time in my 16-year broadcasting career," the former Fox & Friends co-host told ET in a statement on Tuesday. "Because Roger, Steve, and Brian consistently treated me with overwhelming respect, and pure-hearted kindness, for which I am forever thankful."
