"View" co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck responded to questions about the whirlwind of rumors surrounding the ABC daytime talk show on Monday's HuffPost Live.

Co-host Joy Behar has already announced that this would be her last season on "The View." Soon after that news broke, rumors surfaced that the show was looking to replace Hasselbeck as well, citing internal research that reportedly revealed Behar and Hasselbeck's political points of view were alienating some viewers. A few weeks later, multiple outlets reported that Barbara Walters was planning her retirement for May 2014.

When HuffPost Live asked Hasselbeck about her future on the show, the "View" co-host said she had no plans to move. She also dismissed reports about Walters' retirement.

"When Barbara gives it the amen, it can be real," she said. "But until then, I don't even address rumors." She added, "You can decide to talk about rumors all day or you can decide to talk about things that are real," and said, "There is no rumor space for me."
