Elisabeth Hasselbeck stopped by “Rachael Ray” Friday (Nov. 22) in her first television interview since leaving “The View” for “Fox & Friends,” which she says is going great.

“Everyone is just so kind and hard-working and loving. To have those two guys by my side, I feel so happy,” says Hasselbeck. “They are remarkably talented and just kind individuals, so I’m beyond thankful. My brothers.”

“The first alarm goes off at 2:45 a.m. … Sometimes I’ll try to sneak a little nap, because I don’t go to bed early enough,” says Hasselbeck. “The nighttime’s hard for me to go to sleep.”

She also took the “Rachael Ray” show behind the scenes at “Fox & Friends,” where she says it’s incredibly fun to work — “Such a great group of people, I’m beyond thrilled.”

Later, Hasselbeck talks about cooking with her three kids, Grace, Taylor and Isaiah, and their Christmas lists, which this year doesn’t mean gifts — each child is choosing a brother or sister to sponsor for Christmas. Aww.
