Rosie O’Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck haven’t been co-hosts on The View for years, but their time on the ABC gabfest is still drawing headlines, thanks to the new book by Ramin Setoodeh, Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View.

Hasselbeck is reacting to quotes from O’Donnell revealing a crush on Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck addressed the comments while promoting her book on The View on Tuesday by calling them “reckless, untrue and not only insulting, disturbing about how she felt about someone in the workplace.”

Hasselbeck isn’t the only co-host to clash with Rosie O’Donnell. People published excerpts from Ladies that Punch that delve into the on and offscreen clashes between O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg.

Reportedly, O’Donnell felt Whoopi was one of the meanest people on TV.

“Whoopi Goldberg was as mean as anyone has ever been on television to me, personally—while I was sitting there,” O’Donnell told Setoodeh. “Worse than Fox News. The worst experience I’ve ever had on live television was interacting with her.”
