[BRIGHTCOVE "4069860713001" "" "" "auto"] Elisabeth Hasselbeck admittedly hasn't been keeping up with the ongoing drama at The View, and for good reason: She never plans to return.
On Tuesday's upcoming episode of the Rachael Ray Show, Ray brings up the "revolving table" at Hasselbeck's former gig and asks, "Would you ever go sit in the seat for, you know, a few days?"
"No. I've done my time. I did my time, I was outta there," says Hasselbeck, 37, of her 2013 move to Fox News.

This is the second time O'Donnell has decided to leave The View; however, this time, she received a proper send-off.
For her last show Thursday, O'Donnell, 52, hit the View stage in good spirits, even doing a little dance and "drop[ping] it like it's hot," as co-host Rosie Perez put it. (Who knew she had it in her?) The comedian's cheerful mood was even reflected in the sunny yellow blazer she chose to wear.

For Rosie O'Donnell, leaving The View was just what the doctor ordered.
The comedian suffered a near fatal heart attack in 2012 and has kept a firm eye on her health ever since. "My doctors were noticing that there was an uptick in my numbers since I started on the show," the co-host of ABC's The View told PEOPLE while premiering her new documentary Rosie O'Donnell: A Heartfelt Standup at the Athena Film Festival in New York on Saturday.
"It got a little bit worse right before the holidays, and my doctor was kind of concerned, so when I went back after the holiday break, she said to me, 'You know, the stress level is too much,' " said O'Donnell, 52.
At that point, O'Donnell realized she had to eliminate whatever stress she could. "I've had a lot going on in my personal life that's been very stressful. I have five kids, four of them teenagers, that's a lot of my attention," not to mention, the problems within her marriage to Michelle Rounds. "You know, Michelle and I are going through some hard stuff, and I can't really fix those things right away, but I can fix this," O'Donnell said.

After only six months back in the hot seat, Rosie O'Donnell has decided to leave The View.
PEOPLE has confirmed that the 52-year-old host/comedian – who returned for the show's 18th season to help fill a big hole left by the retiring Barbara Walters – said through her publicist Friday that she's putting her "family and health first" after a split from her wife Michelle Rounds in November.

The funny lady takes on the Funny Girl.
In an exclusive video from the new documentary American Masters: The Boomer List, airing Tuesday on PBS (9 p.m. ET), Rosie O'Donnell hilariously channels Barbra Streisand.
"The record my mother loved the most was A Happening in Central Park," says O'Donnell, launching into "Marty the Martian" and "Second Hand Rose" a la Streisand. "She loved I could sort of do the accent."
