Elisabeth Hasselbeck, looking resplendent in a purple dress with a giant sparkly necklace, began her “Fox & Friends” run with a nod to her last job as co-host of “The View.”

After a quick tour of the new set, Hasselbeck (who admitted that her new early morning hours were going to be an adjustment) took her place on the new, much larger couch with co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, who showed a publicity photo of her with her former “View” co-hosts, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters.

“Imagine sitting next to the best surgeon for 10 years,” Hasselbeck said of what she learned during her time with Walters.

Shepherd later showed up to wish Hasselbeck luck, running onto the set and embracing her former co-worker, exclaiming “there’s my friend!” and “I love you so much!”
