Donnell, 57, revealed in a new book (excerpt) that she had "little crush" at Hasselbeck, 41, despite being at completely opposite ends of the political spectrum.

I would support, raise, raise her as if she were freshman star shortstop and I was the team's captain," said O & # 39; Donnell in "Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of "The View." was to Scottie Pippen her. If I were Jordan, I would give her and the ball and let her shoot. But it was in no way sexualized. "

O & # 39; Donnell also claimed there were "underlying lesbian tones on both [of their] parts" and said about the former softball player Hasselbeck, "There is no many in my life girls with such an athletic talent on sports teams that are traditionally male who are not at least a bit homosexual. "
Hasselbeck replied to O & # 39; comments and said she immediately started praying after she had read them and noted that hv ice a man said the same thing about her, "there would be an objectification of women in the workplace." "So it's disturbing, and it's wrong. And whether you're a man or you're a woman and you're an objective woman at work, it's wrong," she said.

Hasselbeck added Donnell's softball comment: "I think she's throwing a stereotype of female athletes and what she said … that all female athletes are a little gay … i would say it directly to her, and i would say, "It is an unfair stereotype and it seems selfish in a way and I think it's untrue. ""

"I can do it with God's grace, because I need grace, and I need forgiveness," she said. "So Rosie, I think it was disturbing to read these things and it was offensive to me, but I forgive her. I completely forgive you Rosie … I really hope we can be at peace and that we both can hold our faith in one hand and hold each other's hand in the other and still have a relationship that is in peace.
