Fasten your seatbelts for a bumpy showdown! Bill Maher paid a visit to the ladies of The View. Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck is still smarting from a joke the Real Time host made in Feb. At the time Maher cracked Hasselbeck should be sent to Egypt, in exchange for CBS correspondent Lara Logan, who also was sexually assaulted during the Egyptian revolution. Maher made the joke before CBS released a statement, informing the world about Logan's assault.
Hasselbeck let it be known she did not find his joke funny, while Maher tried to explain he wasn't trying to personally attack her. Watch the fireworks between the two after the jump! READ MORE
The ladies of The View have grilled politicians on their couch, argued the latest hot topics at their table and now they want to host a Republican presidential debate. According to The Huffington Post, “A spokesman for "The View" confirmed that requests have been sent to Republican campaigns but declined to speak further about any interest so far.”
Just how would a Republican debate on The View work? Would Barbara Walters be the moderator? Would Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd participate? If they did, candidates would surely prepare themselves for hostile questioning from Goldberg and Behar. Hasselbeck, The View’s conservative voice on the panel, would probably feel at home at such a debate, but who would have guessed the one-time Survivor competitor might one day be involved in a Republican presidential debate? Do you believe Republican candidates will agree to debate on The View?

Thanks to Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s confrontation with Michael Moore over Osama bin Laden, it hasn’t taken long for the new season of The View to grab headlines. But The View and debating with documentary filmmakers isn’t the only thing keeping Hasselbeck busy these days. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hasselbeck will co-host the limited run series Angels Among Us on CMT.
Each installment of the four-part series recreates three real-life life-or-death instances in which someone's life was saved by another person. The episodes will conclude with a follow-up about how the lives of people involved were impacted. Hasselbeck will present the stories through survivor interviews, eyewitness accounts and reenactments.
Angels Among Us premieres tonight on CMT. The debut episode features the story of three September 11 survivers.

The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck may be most famous for her onscreen screaming match with her former co-host Rosie O’Donnell, but it is her feud with Barry Manilow that landed her on Zap2it’s Weird Celebrity Feuds.
"Mandy" singer and adult-contemporary superstar Barry Manilow fought with none other than "The View's" conservative conscience Elisabeth Hasselbeck. At first it was reported that Manilow took exception to Hasselbeck's politics calling them "dangerous and offensive" before pulling out of the show. Later one sources said "The View" producers dumped Manilow after he said he'd only perform if Hasselbeck took that day off. Either way, it's pretty darn weird.
What do you think is the weirdest celebrity feud?
Paris vs. Babs. The New York Post is reporting Paris Hilton wasn't thrilled by the questions she received this past Wednesday on The View. The celebutante appeared on the talk show to promote her new "reality" series, The World According to Paris. According to the paper, Hilton was not amused when Barbara Walters had her up against the ropes about the sincerity of Hilton's philanthropic endeavors. Hilton was also reportedly miffed that Walters took offense to Hilton griping about having to do court-appointed community service, stemming from her 2010 drug arrest.
According to the paper, Hilton and her father ripped into a View producer off-camera following the segment. While the Hiltons' rep declined to comment, a rep for The View admitted the incident took place. Check out what allegedly got Paris and Pops hot at the 2.04 minute mark below!
