Elisabeth Hasselbeck: “I’m A Wannabe Type A”

MaySallyCoverIn the May issue of Ladies’ Home Journal, Elisabeth Hasselbeck chats about leaving The View and working at her new job at Fox & Friends. Here are excerpts:

On joining Fox & Friends after leaving The View:
“It was like going from hanging out with your sisters to playing catch with your brothers. I don’t think I am or will ever be the best at what I do but I try really hard. My parents gave me the freedom to pursue passions and take sensible risks.”

On getting up at 2:45 a.m. for her job:
“I don’t even put one foot out of bed without reaching for my concealer. I have concealer everywhere: in my coat pocket, on my nightstand, in my car. The alarm goes off and I feel for my glasses. I put the concealer on and I’m ready to start my day.”

On her first date with husband Tim Hasselbeck:
“We met when we were students at Boston College. We got locked out of the dorm we both lived in. There was nowhere to go, so we sat up against a bike rack and fell asleep holding hands. That first date lasted 14 hours. It wasn’t magical – we had our backs up against a metal bike rack! – but it felt strangely comfortable.”

On what I learned from being on Survivor in 2001:
“I don’t like to fish. I don’t like being out in the wilderness. I don’t want to be with an animal that doesn’t have a cute name or an owner. I went in thinking I was tough and I found out I wasn’t tough at all. But I learned that facing your weaknesses can make you stronger.”
On her first pair of glasses growing up: “People tried to talk me out of buying them. But when I finally knew I would be able to see better with glasses, I wanted the biggest pair so I wouldn’t miss a thing.”
 
On the biggest minconception about her:
“That I’m super-organized and type A. I’m a wannabe type A. I don’t even see the messes I make. Right now I probably have an apple rotting at the bottom of my bag.”
