Elisabeth Hasselbeck is not leaving "The View."

"On a more a serious note, there's a particularly false story about Elisabeth's alleged departure that's getting picked up. Truth is we love Elisabeth. We value and appreciate her point of view," Barbara said. "We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave this show."

Barbara also confirmed she is not leaving the show either.
