Elisabeth Hasselbeck to Kate Gosselin: 'Get a job!'

Posted on


This morning on The View, Elisabeth Hasselbeck said that Jon & Kate Plus Eight should no longer exist (“They shouldn’t have a show”) and that Kate Gosselin should “get a job.” When co-host Sherri Shepherd noted that the Gosselins had essentially given up their jobs to work for their reality show — i.e., that this, in addition to parenting, is Kate’s job — Hasselbeck said vehemently, “I don’t care!… It’s not healthy for the kids.”

“Get the camera off the kids!” said Hasselbeck.

Barbara Walters, who was the only person on the View panel who admitted to watching Jon & Kate, said that she thought that “if you have more than five children, you shouldn’t be allowed to get divorced.”

The audience applauded enthusiastically. 

Do you agree with Hasselbeck?
