Oops! Elisabeth Hasselbeck admitted that she once forgot to bring her daughter, Grace, to her first day of school, even though the little one was “so excited.”
“We celebrated the last day of summer with some friends in the park,” the former View cohost, 41, wrote in her memoir, Point of View: A Fresh Look at Work, Faith and Freedom.
When she got a call from a school administrator asking if her daughter would be attending, Hasselbeck responded, “‘Of course! … She has her lunch box all set out, and her bow, and we can’t wait to meet everyone on the first day tomorrow.’”
The only problem? What she assumed was the last day of summer was actually the first day of school.
Although the Fox & Friends alum felt ashamed, “it happens,” she wrote in her new book, which came out Tuesday, March 26. “I’m pretty sure it doesn’t only happen to me. All moms make mistakes sometimes, and being able to share them in a momversation makes the journey easier and makes us stronger.”
The Emmy winner, who shares Grace, 13, Taylor, 11, and Isaiah, 9, with her husband, Tim Hasselbeck, cohosted the View from 2003 to 2013.
Her former cohost Rosie O’Donnell revealed in her new book Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View that she had “a little bit of a crush” on Hasselbeck during their time on the show together.
The comedian, 57, said “there were underlying lesbian undertones on both parts,” especially because the Survivor alum had played softball in college.
“There are not many, in my life, girls with such athletic talent on sports teams that are traditionally male that aren’t at least a little bit gay,” O’Donnell wrote.
Hasselbeck responded on Fox & Friends on Tuesday, March 26. “I think her casting a stereotype on female athletes and what she said — that all female athletes are ‘a little bit gay’ — I would say this directly to her, and I would say, ‘That’s an unfair stereotype, and it seems selfish in a way and I think that it’s untrue,’” she said.
