You knew something was up when Barbara Walters walked out on the set of 'The View' arm and arm with Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Rumors have been running wild that Hasselbeck is getting her walking papers from the daily gabfest.

Babs says it's not true. 

"There is a particularly false story that keeps getting picked up about Elisabeth's departure," Walters said. "We value her and appreciate point of view... She helps keep the show balanced... We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave the show," Walters said on the show.  

So, do we believe her? I for one have been around TV way to long to say "yes."

Something about that whole arm and arm thing....it looked like when some Hollywood couple says that aren't splitting up and then months later they do.

Time will tell....
