I was once stuck visiting a member of my family once for a couple of days a few years ago for a family function.
Every day this person would sit down and watch The View and it was one of those things where I would excuse myself to go and do something more entertaining, like trying to jump out of a window.
I would have done anything to keep from watching that crap and now it seems that there is something happening where another one of the key cast members might have had enough of all the lying.
Critics of The View, the daytime talk show on ABC, are rejoicing now that Joy Behar, 77, has announced that she plans to hang up her hat and retire when her contract expires in 2022.
Behar has been part of the show for twenty-one seasons and has had a place in the lives of millions of Americans who tune in to get their daily dose of what’s going on in America. Behar shared her intention to leave The View behind during an interview that she conducted with journalist Ramin Setoodeh’s book The Explosive Inside Story of the View, which will be available in paperback.
Many people love Behar, but many people hate her as well. Because her politics lean left, she has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way throughout the years – especially since President Trump was elected to office.
During the interview, Behar was excited to talk about how she was going to leave the show when her contract with ABC came to a close.
“I have a three-year contract,” Behar said in the book. “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. I don’t see myself staying for more [time]. That’s it!”
Behar is the show’s liberal. She also made it clear that she might not quit. It all depends on how she feels as she goes.
“I could be wrong. If I’m as fabulous in  as I am now, I’ll think about. But the chances of that happening…” she said, pausing. “You know, time marches on. I’m not a kid.”
Because Variety wanted to know if the interview was true or not, their reported confronted The View to ask them if Behar’s retirement was imminent. Variety wanted to know if Behar was really going to let her contract expire in 2022.
