No interest in the immigration post, huh? Then you leave me no choice, my friends:

While Elisabeth Hasselbeck has long-maintained she and former View cohost Rosie O’Donnell are close – she now says she’s unsure if she can call O’Donnell a friend.

“Truthfully, I think a friend is someone who you have positive communications with, so I don’t know if I would define us as friends right now,” Hasselbeck, 30, tells Access Hollywood in an interview scheduled to air Tuesday. Adds Hasselbeck: “I did define us as friends, but I’m not going to make the leap to assume that we will or will not be friends in the future.”

In O’Donnel’s blog posts and recent comedy routines she has opened up about her tumultuous year on The View, saying in one video on her site that she may never speak to Hasselbeck again…

But Hasselbeck tells Access Hollywood that she does not really read O’Donnell’s blog – and that the post was unexpected news. “She sent me two emails right after that and I sent her one back,” she says. “It was a really great email, so hearing these things after really surprises me.”

Sounds like she’s ready to close the door here. Does she realize what she’s giving up?


Update: That’s exactly the type of non-answer Sullivan gives when presented with that question, isn’t it? “But doesn’t torture work sometimes?” “Dear god, sir. Really.
