TCA Press Tour: Elisabeth Hasselbeck's ears burn as 'The Real L World' cast fights back
"The View" co-host said on the ABC talk show that she thinks a lot of older lesbians wold have turned straight if they could only land a man."All the older men are going for younger women, leaving the women with no one," Hasselbeck said.
The cast of Showtime's reality show about a group of lesbians who live in Los Angeles brought up Hasselbeck's comments during a panel session for the show.
"Ignorant," said Nikki Weiss to start off the discussion.
"I was gonna say something a little less PC," added Rose Garcia.
"And hurtful," Weiss added.
Garcia continued: "You know, Elisabeth, it's not the first time you've said some boneheaded comment."
Weiss: "It's amazing that she has such a big platform for such an ignorant woman."
Then they wondered aloud if Hasselbeck would soon call them and apologize, and said they'd respond by asking her out on a date.
