A representative for 'The View' confirmed that Hasselbeck went home sick, telling AOL TV, "Elisabeth was here this morning in studio and was scheduled to be on the live show, she went home because she wasn't feeling well."

On Tuesday's show, Hasselbeck got into an extended confrontation with the comedian about a joke he made in February involving her and CBS correspondent Lara Logan.

Tuesday night on 'Letterman,' Maher continued to joke about the uncomfortable interview.
