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