More drama for Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
"The View" co-host, who sparks controversy for her conservative opinions, is being sued by an author who claims Hasselbeck, 32, stole her book idea.
Self-published author Susan Hassett states in a federal lawsuit filed in Boston that Hasselbeck infringed on her copyrights by publishing a book on Celiac Disease called "The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide" last month, the Boston Herald reports.
Publicists for ABC and Hasselbeck's publisher, Hachette Book Group, could not be reached for comment by the Herald.
Hasselbeck, who is pregnant with her third child, recently announced she suffers from celiac disease, which damages the small intestine and interferes with nutrient absorption.
The talk show host, who discovered she had the disorder after appearing on "Survivor," cannot eat gluten (found in wheat, rye and barley) as a result.
