'Real L Word' Women Unhappy With Elisabeth Hasselbeck's Lesbian Comment


'Real L Word' Women Unhappy With Elisabeth Hasselbeck's Lesbian Comment


Saying lesbian is the result of older women unable to score a guy, 'The View' co-host Hasselbeck is criticized by the real-life lesbians.

The ladies of "The Real L Word" are pissed at Elisabeth Hasselbeck who made enemies again when she thought older women become lesbians because they can't get men. During Television Critics Association presentation of Showtime, the open lesbians whose life is captured on camera called the "The View" host "ignorant".

Hasselbeck said in episode airing Wednesday, July 28, "All the older men are going for younger women, leaving the women with no one." Her co-host Joy Behar disagreed, saying that one just doesn't wake up and decides to be lesbian. But Hasselbeck countered it back by saying sometimes when you get older, it's more about companionship than something sexual.

Asked for a comment, "Real L Word" cast Nikki Weiss who admitted in her profile she is new to the lesbian scene said, "I know that Elisabeth is really conservative, but it was also a really hurtful and ignorant comment. I don't know why she'd say it. [Maybe because] she doesn't usually have anything smart to bring to the table."

Meanwhile, Rose Garcia snapped, "I was gonna say something a little less PC," adding "you know, Elisabeth, it's not the first time you've said some boneheaded comment." They wondered if Hasselbeck would apologize to them. Weiss even offered herself, "I'd sit down with Elisabeth and the panel."

Meanwhile, the discussion at the presentation also touched the issue that no season 2 has been announced. Showtime's head publicisit Richard Licata said, "We haven't made a decision yet." Creator Ilene Chaiken explained more, saying "Honestly, we don't know ...we're still figuring it out due to the changes at Showtime."

    The best thing they could ever do at THE VIEW is get rid of Elizabeth ... haven't liked her since day one and have since quit watching. My husband and I taped this every day so we could watch THE VIEW while eating dinner. We haven't watched this show in three years. The best thing they did do is bring Whooopi to the table.
