There are two Christian co-hosts on ABC’s The View that are unapologetically outspoken about their faith: Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd.

On Monday’s program, Barbara Walters shot down a rumor that one of the two was getting the ax due to her overly conservative views.

“There is a particularly false story that keeps getting picked up about Elisabeth’s alleged departure, saying that we don’t approve of her conservative views,” said Walters.

“The truth is we love Elisabeth. I like her personally and she’s just a wonderful person. But beyond that, we value and appreciate her point of view,” adding that, “Elisabeth helps give this show perspective and balance, so we have no plans for Elisabeth to leave show.”

Although 70-year-old comedian Joy Behar is making a departure from the show after 16 seasons of co-hosting, Hasselbeck will retain her post and has nothing to worry about.

Walters who said she will miss Behar continued, “Having said that to all of you, [producer] Bill [Geddie] and I have always said that when one of you makes the choice to leave, that’s your choice and we will support your decision.”
