The ladies of “The Real L Word” are no fans of “The View” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck

http://www.watchingtheview.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/04/elisabeth1.jpgEarlier this week, The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck shared her crackpot theory that more older women are becoming lesbians because guys their age are going after younger women leaving these poor gals with no one but each other.

The cast of The Real Housewives was asked about this during their session yesterday at the TV Critics Assn. Press Tour.

“[It's] hurtful, really hurtful,” said Nikki Weiss. “I’m surprised people haven’t jumped on it … It’s amazing that she has such a big platform for such an ignorant comment.”

Rose Garcia chimed in: “Hey Elisabeth, it’s not the first time you’ve made some boneheaded comment.”

I chatted with Rose after and she added: “She’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck and she’s extremely conservative and she’s been known to have her opinions and kind of say things that she’ll end up regretting. She’s insulted a lot of different people. If I saw her, I’d say, ‘You need to watch only our show but other shows on television like Modern Family and just be a little more open minded.”

I’ll leave it to The Real L Word’s Executive Producer Ilene Chaiken to have the final word in this – at least until GLAAD weighs in: “The Elisabeth Hasselbecks of the world are out there. We’ve got to just keep talking to them, talking over them and talking around them. It’s never going to away completely and the best thing that we can do is our work because it puts our stories forward and I think does change some hearts and minds.”
