So, we couldn't help but wonder how the blonde beauty is doing during this rough time.

Earlier this month, it was reported that Sherri Shepherd was working on a deal to return to The View as a rotating co-host after her exit in 2014!
Now, Joy Behar revealed that she was also recently approached by ABC about returning to the return to the daytime talk show this fall!
The comedienne, who left the show in 2013 after 16 seasons, dished to WBAZ's Walker Vreeland that negotiations didn't go too well, saying:
"They've come to me, and we couldn't make a deal…They wouldn't really negotiate well enough for me, and so I said, 'No, I'm not coming to you.'"
The View finally has its new lineup set — by bringing back one of the best co-hosts of all time!
Sherri Shepherd is reportedly coming back to the table on a regular basis for the first time since she left the show in August of 2014!
While comedienne Michelle Collins will be taking the full-time spot left by Rosie Perez, the fifth spot will be staying more loose.
Though Sherri is beloved by producers, they also want to bring a variety to the table.
If Dailymail.com inside sources are correct, Sherri will be a rotating host with three other women:
Dr. Fredric Brandt was a beloved man.
On Thursday, friends and family came out to the Lincoln Center in New York to pay tribute to the famed dermatologist.
According to Women's Wear Daily, the Kelly & Michael hostess, who was one of the last 11 speakers at the tribute, spoke to the crowd and said:
"This is the saddest thing that I never thought I would have to do. When I look out into this room I see so many beautiful faces and I realized that Fred is all around us. He is with all of us now."
While the former View host said about Dr. Brandt:
If your'e a fan of The View, then you're a fan of Joy Behar.
And if you're a fan of Joy Behar, then you will really enjoy her new one-woman show, Me, My Mouth & I, now playing off-Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theater.
If you're a fan of The View, however, you will be disappointed that while Behar touches upon her time on the show and her former colleagues, she doesn't delve deep or spend much time on either. She doesn't share her opinions or true feelings on any of the above, instead just sharing funny one-liners.
Me, My Mouth & I is very enjoyable but suffering from an identity crisis. Not quite a show yet not quite a standup act.
It would have benefitted GREATLY from a theatrical director, something that Behar chose to forgo.
A great director would have helped Behar, who wrote the show, finetune her material and focus the star and the precious 90 minutes of a typical one-person show. While showing a clip from the 80s of a young Joy was fun, it didn't add much and we instead would have preferred to spend those minutes more wisely.
Behar mentioned her daughter once or twice and focused A LOT more time on aunts and other relatives, something we found very odd.
Minutes spent fawning over Catherine Beneuve seemed confusing and an attempt to tie a throughline through the show, which didn't quite work.
And while it wasn't a homerun, it was still - like we said above - "very enjoyable" and a great first effort at writing a one-woman show.
With a director on board and more fine-tuning, Me, My Mouth & I could transfer to Broadway and do quite well.
People love Joy Behar - us included! She is winning and we want to see her win!
In a year that has already seen a LOT of shakeups, it sounds like The View might be seeing even MORE changes in the near future!!
With lots of faces coming and going, ratings have taken a significant hit for the daytime talk show, and sources are saying that ABC is trying to stop the bleeding with a secret plan to bring in even MORE new faces!
Or should we say old faces!
According to insiders, ABC execs have contacted former hosts Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd about the prospect of returning the show and bring back some much needed energy!
