TCA Press Tour: Elisabeth Hasselbeck's ears burn as 'The Real L World' cast fights back

July 29, 2010 | 11:51 am

 The cast of Showtime's "The Real L Word" had some fighting words for Elisabeth Hasselbeck Thursday because of comments she made about lesbians on Tuesday.

"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.
