Rosie O'Donnell's possible return to "The View" has unleashed the kind of feuding among the show's ex-hosts that used to be seen only on the actual program. The latest twist? Joy Behar calling out Elisabeth Hasselbeck for her recent, furious attack on O'Donnell.

Hasselbeck phoned into "Fox and Friends" on Wednesday and unleashed a torrent of vitriol about O'Donnell, who is said to be returning to the show after a seven-year absence.

"Here comes to 'The View' the very woman who spit in the face of our military, spit in the face of her own network, and really in the face of a person who stood by her and had civilized debates for the time that she was there," Hasselbeck fumed.

Speaking to Don Lemon on CNN, Behar made her displeasure clear. "I would like Elisabeth to explain herself," she said. "What does she mean by that? And isn't it kind of a nasty thing to say about somebody who basically is a good person?" She also pointed out that O'Donnell's son is in military school.

She continued, "That's a dangerous thing to say about somebody...I think it's a hate-filled remark. And she should explain it."
