Elisabeth Hasselbeck returned to the Fox News series “Fox & Friends” after disappearing from the show for about a month, and revealed to viewers that she had “a bit of a scare” and was relieved to learn it wasn’t cancer, reports Deadline.com.
“I had a tumor in my abdomen. The doctor said, ‘You got to get it out by the end of the month, we don’t like how it looks,’” she told viewers Friday morning. “I had a scary week when we didn’t know what the results were. But I’m OK … everything came back OK. Surgery’s not fun, but it is necessary to find out if you have something really terrible.”
She thanked “Mr. Ailes and the entire Fox family for treating me like family the entire way.”
Her co-hosts welcomed her back with a cake from Cake Boss.
“Thank you Cake Boss!” Hasselbeck said.
Co-host Brian Kilmeade added, “Wherever you are.” Buddy Valastro, the star of the show “Cake Boss,” was arrested this week on suspicion of diving while intoxicated, as we reported Thursday.
