Originally posted 02/19/2015 02:35PM

[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.

All About Rosie O'Donnell's Last Day on The View: 'It's Been Really Fun' (VIDEO)

Originally posted 02/12/2015 12:40PM

Rosie O'Donnell announced Friday that she'd be leaving her spot at the View roundtable. Just one week later, her final show arrived.

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.

Rosie O'Donnell: Leaving The View Was Doctor's Orders

Originally posted 02/08/2015 09:55AM

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.
