The cast of Showtime’s ‘The Real L Word’ had some fighting words for Elisabeth Hasselbeck Thursday because of comments she made about lesbians on Tuesday.

‘The View’ co-host said on the ABC talk show that she thinks a lot of older lesbians wold have turned straight if they could only land a man.


‘All the older men are going for younger women, leaving the women with no one,’ Hasselbeck said.

The cast of Showtime’s reality show about a group of lesbians who live in Los Angeles brought up Hasselbeck’s comments during a panel session for the show.

‘Ignorant,’ said Nikki Weiss to start off the discussion.

‘I was gonna say something a little less PC,’ added Rose Garcia.

‘And hurtful,’ Weiss added.

Garcia continued: ‘You know, Elisabeth, it’s not the first time you’ve said some boneheaded comment.’

Weiss: ‘It’s amazing that she has such a big platform for such an ignorant woman.’

Then they wondered aloud if Hasselbeck would soon call them and apologize, and said they’d respond by asking her out on a date.
