We all know everyone wins when we have a blond-on-blond cat fight. You may have heard all the hubbub last week when bloviating cutie Elisabeth Hasselbeck decided to take issue with the outfits Sideline hottie Erin Andrews wore on Dancing with the Stars.
In case you missed it, here was Hasselbeck's original comments:
"For the past like three weeks she's been wearing like next to nothing," Hasselbeck said about Andrews. "I think in light of what happened and as illegal and as inexcusable as it was for that horrific guy to go in and try to peep on her in her hotel room, in some way, if I'm him, I'm like, 'Man, I could have just waited 12 weeks and seen this, a little bit less, without the prison time.'
Apparently, Hasselbeck went home and became distraught over her comments. Maybe she realized it was pretty stupid for a celebrity that most of us have seen in a bikini more than actual clothes to be criticizing another woman's wardrobe. Or maybe she actually realized it was kind of callous to make light of something that Andrews has been very public about the fact that it had a traumatic effect on her. We don't know.
Personally, we thought it was obviously a poor attempt at humor. Poor not in the material (we actually think it was a funny point), rather it was poor in that Hasselbeck isn't hard enough to do snide comedy. Leave that to Whoopi and Behar, kid. It ain't your racket.
We do know that God, apparently talking through Elisabeth's daughter (they should have that looked at), told Elisabeth to call Andrews up and apologize. So Hasselbeck went on the air the next day, broke down crying as she told the story of talking to her 5-year old daughter about it. The daughter, obviously not the vapid drama queen Elisabeth is or simply filled with the spirit, told her mom to just call and apologize. To which Hasselbeck proclaimed she just wanted to publicly apologize even though she had followed her daughter's advice. (Video here -- if you watch, check out Joy Behar. She looks amazed that Elisabeth is getting this emotional over it).
So...sounds like Elisabeth saw the error of her ways thanks to the wonderful innocence that is her child, filled with morality from her daily devotional readings and personally apologized to Erin Andrews, right? Uh...no.
Hey, Elisabeth...what devotional you got for falsely presenting yourself to others in order to extricate yourself from previous wrongs? Stay classy, EH.
