Looks like the incredibly boring rumors are true — Elisabeth Hasselbeck is leaving The View and will be joining Fox & Friends on Fox News. I’m guessing both sides got equally sick of each other and Hasselbeck got her dream job at Fox News — any job at Fox News is her dream job — and off she went. Here’s her incredibly boring statement, via ABC News:

I have been a long-time fan of ‘Fox & Friends’ and am excited to be joining their team in September as it is an honor to call the Fox News Channel my new television home

And here is how ABC is saying, “Bye, don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out”:

For a decade, Elisabeth Hasselbeck has brought her passion and strong beliefs to “The View.”  We watched her journey from newlywed to motherhood, an Emmy Award-winning talk show host, author, entrepreneur and activist. She stood behind her political views even if they were not the most popular opinions at the table never shying away from voicing a difficult question.  We thank Elisabeth and wish her luck as she begins this new chapter of her career.

Who honestly read that to the end? Don’t worry everyone, Barbara Walters made sure to leave pun-filled statement:

When Elisabeth survived ‘Survivor,’ we wanted to make sure she would stay afloat. We have had 10 wonderful years with her and she will now be swimming in new waters. We will miss her and wish her everything good.
