Say it ain't so, Joy!

After 16 years of absolutely crushing it on ABC's The View, Joy Behar is walking away when her contract expires in August! She's quitting!

That isn't to say she's leaving daytime TV for good, though!

The HIGHlarious comedienne has other irons in the fire, including a possible show on CNN!

Joy revealed, in her own words, why NOW was the right time to say her goodbyes to Whoopi, Babs, and the rest of the crew.

She said:

“It seemed like the right time. You reach a point when you say to yourself, ‘Do I want to keep doing this?’ There are other things on my plate I want to do — I’ve been writing a play, I’ve been neglecting my standup.”

We understand her point and we certainly wouldn't want Joy to regret staying on the show too long, but… who could possibly replace her?

Oh, we know — US! We could!!!

JK, LOLz!

You will be missed, Joy — good luck in whatever else you do!

    Don't watch that show, but the few times I've seen this woman on anything, she was just terrible. People who try that hard to be funny, do so because they're not funny. Thanks to idiot viewers who continue to lower the bar with their entertainment choices, we get things like fake reality television, Justin Bieber, Twilight movies, and the talentless Joy Behar.

    GOOD RIDDANCE, I CAN'T STAND HER BITCHY AS*. I hate The View, the only View they respect is their own View. Everyone else, to them, is wrong.

    So what, who cares? lol

    She is a woman who has a very high opinion of herself,
    She did a late night talk show, that had the lowest ratings and was fired, than she went off to CURRENT, again lowest ratings, about to be canned there, now trying for another chance at CNN
    Joy is not funny,has no talent and is a nasty and bitter old woman
    let her go back and do a few more Carnival Cruise Line gigs

    Re: dreamboat – you put other's down for their entertainment choices but yet one of yours is perez's blog. yeah, we can tell what a sophisticate you are.

    They should cancel the show. Barbara Walters is an embarrassment, Elisabeth is a hatable moron, and Sherry and Whoopi add nothing!

    Maybe someone else will get a word in.

    16 friggin years that show has been on?? I would have said seven, maybe eight. So that means it debuted in 1997?? Holy crap.



  13. 13

    Her and Barbara are the only ones I hate. They don't add anything and seem so detached from the current world that they don't really know what to say during current topics.

    "Who could possibly replace her?" A wet dog.
    I think she should go into seclusion and never rear her ugly head or speak her stupid commy comments again.
    Now maybe I will watch the View.

    After 16 Years its time for Bitchy Barbara to only be on the View once a year…that woman is such a snob!! And please someone either BITCHSLAP that fucking blonde republica mouthpiece Hasslebitch live on AIR or fire her!!! Whoopi I love you and you are amazing on the show. Sheri is funny but doesn't bring much to the table. Time to get some new hosts to work with Whoopi!!



  21. 21

BARBARA IS AN ICON AND WHOOPI IS WHOOPI, CHERI AND ELIZABETH ARE NOT MATURE AND ONLY ADD STUPIDITY. ME AND MY FRIENDS AT WORK USE TO TVO SHOW BUT NOT NOW ELIZABETH IS CHILDISH !!!

    Having watched this show since the beginning, Joy has always been my favourite (with Rosie and Meredith a close tied for second).. I will seeing Joy on the show. The only benefit is that this may give Joy her own (hopefully) CNN show or perhaps a show on cable like Bill Maher. Joy other show was fantastic, witty and smart. I could sit and watch her and Ann Coulter bicker back and forth for hours. If CNN knew what was right for them.. ditch Piers and hire Joy!!!! Good luck Joy.. you will be missed (SNL will never be the same…)
