The View's Joy Behar Reminisces On The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Rosie-Elisabeth Fight!

In a recent interview, co-host of The View, Joy Behar, said that although her run is almost over on the show, it will be a time of relief, not sadness, when she leaves.

Obviously, Joy made it clear that there would be a lot to miss from her 16 years on the show. The funny lady mentioned that some of the good times she'd had were not always what you'd expect:

"You know, it's not always the bigger things you remember most fondly. Sometimes it's the goofy, small stuff, like when Matthew McConaughey massaged my feet. Loved that! Or when LL Cool J lifted me over his head like I was a set of barbells."

Yeah, we don't think we'd ever forget if Matthew McConaughey caressed our feet. We also don't we'd ever wash our feet again, either.

Joy went on to dish about her epic walk out on Bill O'Reilly one episode:

"Friends of mine said, 'You should have just sat there and battled it out with him!' But anyone who lumps all Muslims together, like he did, or all Jews, or all blacks, or whatever, there's nothing really to say except, 'You're an idiot!' So, instead of saying that to him I walked off, and Whoopi did, too. It was so weird. My body just got off that chair all by itself."

Sometimes you just need walk it out, gurl! If you had walked out on Clint Eastwood, he might have continued to have a convo with your empty chair as if nothing happened.

Of course, if we had to categorize the biggest fights in the last century, the top three would go in this order from least to greatest: Ali v. Frazier, Godzilla v. Mothra, and finally, O'Donnell v. Hasselbeck.

On this historic bout between Rosie and Elisabeth, Joy had this to say:

"I was right in the middle of that one and it was brutal sitting in the crosshairs. It was so acrimonious, so contentious. But somebody in the booth sure liked it because they would not go to a commercial!…We've had a lot of damn drama on this show and I can't say I didn't enjoy some of it. But not the Rosie-Elisabeth thing."

One can only imagine that kooshes were flying backstage!

All in all, Joy, it was an absolute pleasure watching you on The View, and we'll be so sad to see you leave! Now, if you'll excuse us, we're going to listen to Closing Time on loop and weep.

    Re: HITTLER – You are aware Behar is her first husbands name, her full name being Josephina Victoria Occhiuto, a tiny bit Italian. She was raised catholic, never converted, and if anything would be classified as agnostic. So save your anti-Semitic remarks.

    So glad she's gone. Not funny,nasty & mean-spirited humor. Unbearable to watch and listen to her.

    I like Behar when she stays away from politics. Then she just comeas across as another obsessed Hollywood type bent on trying to prove that she's "right" (or left in this case). It becomes the -I hate you game because - game. Nothing to do with facts or working to resolve anything. There is something to be said for integrity & that goes by the wayside when name calling comes into to play. Everything is wrong with -them- nothing is wrong with your "side". It gets boring very quickly because it's got nothing to do with real opinions or facts, just name caling. When Joy stays away from that & sticks with the comedy, she's pretty funny & can be pretty quick witted.

    Even the booth knew a good chick fight when they saw one. The way those two ideologies have been created/weaved, it was bound to happen. Funny thing is that both Rosie and Elizabeth have great intentions. They'd probably see eye to eye as libertarians.
