Rosie O'Donnell issues sarcastic apology to Elisabeth Hasselbeck over 'crush' comments

Rosie O'Donnell sarcastically apologized to Elisabeth Hasselbeck after the former "Fox & Friends" host took exception to the comedian's "little crush" on her during their tenure on "The View."

“Not that I wanted to kiss her. I wanted to support, raise, elevate her, like she was the freshman star shortstop and I was the captain of the team," O'Donnell said. "I was going to Scottie Pippen her. If I was Jordan, I was going to give her and the ball and let her shoot. But it was in no way sexualized.”

O'Donnell also alleged that there were "underlying lesbian tones on both [of their] parts" and speculated that because Hasselbeck used to play softball that she's "a little bit gay."

Hasselbeck fired back on "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday, griping that O'Donnell's interpretation of their contentious co-hosting period was "disturbing and it's wrong. And whether you're a man or whether you're a woman, and you're objectifying women in the workplace, it's wrong."
