Elisabeth Hasselbeck, cohost of ABC’s The View, is being sued for plagiarizism by a Cape Cod cookbook author, according to Reuters. Susan Hassett claims she sent Hasselbeck a copy of her self-published book Living With Celiac Disease in 2008, only to find “word-for-word regurgitations” of her writing reprinted in Hasselbeck’s best-selling diet book The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide. Hasselbeck did not return Reuters’ calls for comment.
