Rosie O'Donnell has revealed that she had a crush on former "The View" co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck.

According to Fox News:

It turns out there's a reason – besides being polar political opposites – that Rosie O'Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck fought like an old married couple during their time together on "The View."

O'Donnell, 57, confessed in “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View'” that she had "a little bit of a crush" on her right-leaning table-mate.

The comedian was quick, however, to clarify that her "crush" manifested itself in a mentor role, not in any romantic overtures.

“Not that I wanted to kiss her," O'Donnell explained in the book (via Variety). "I wanted to support, raise, elevate her, like she was the freshman star shortstop and I was the captain of the team ... 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.”

Rosie also revealed that she tried to help Hasselbeck learn the ropes in how to navigate the TV industry.
