ABC’s daytime show “The View” may be soon looking at co-host Joy Behar’s retirement.
In an interview for the just-released nonfiction book “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View,” Behar mentioned retirement plans.
“I have a three-year contract,” Behar said. “But that doesn’t mean I can’t leave if I want to because they can’t really do anything to me at this point. It could be any day now.
“I don’t see myself staying for more [time]. That’s it! I could be wrong. If I’m as fabulous as I am now, I’ll think about it. But the chances of that happening…You know, time marches on. I’m not a kid.”
Social media users have expressed relief and joy due to Behar’s negative attacks on people she disagrees with.
More on this story via The Western Journal:
In May 2020, Behar called former President Donald Trump a “disgusting racist,” and she suggested anyone who supported him may also be a racist.
When reports of Behar’s possible retirement were swirling in 2020, an ABC representative attempted to throw cold water on the suggestion.
“This is not true,” the representative said. “Joy was asked what happens at the end of her contract and as she herself made clear in the interview, if she’s ‘as fabulous in  as I am now,’ she will be in her seat at the table.”
The fact is that many viewers find Behar’s hate and vitriol far from “fabulous.” Removing her spiteful comments from the airwaves might not be the worst thing.
