Now here’s a hot topic we can get behind!
We were shocked when the 73-year-old was given the boot from the ABC daytime talk show back in 2013, so it’s been a pleasure watching her interact with Whoopi Goldberg and the rest of the cast now that she’s back.
However, it seems like Joy was also surprised when she was kicked off the show, because on Thursday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the comedian got pretty honest about her re-hiring.
In fact, she claims a network executive actually got on her knees to beg Joy to return to the show!
Ch-ch-check out Joy’s HIGHlarious workplace admission (below)!!!
We don’t care how it happened — we’re just glad Joy is back!
