Joy Behar talks about her upcoming birthday

On the Season 26 premiere of The View, Joy Behar shared a major milestone. She will be turning 80 on October 8, 2022. It all started when her fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg told her that she “looks great.” Joy admitted that she “lost a little weight.”

She let it known that age is nothing but a number. Backstage at the show, Joy spoke to Entertainment Tonight about turning the big 8-0. She said with a smile that she “won’t discuss the number.” However, she doesn’t care because she loves the way she looks.

“But, you know what? I look so good. I can’t even deny it at my age anymore,” Joy Behar told Entertainment Tonight before saying with a laugh, “This is what 40 looks like.”

Joy compared herself to Jane Fonda, who’s 84 years old. She reached out to the legend after learning that she has Hodgkins Lymphoma. Jane is remaining positive since she’s responding well to the chemo and learned that it’s curable. Joy said that she’s trying to age the best way she knows how.

That doesn’t mean she wants to have a huge birthday. She doesn’t like birthday parties because someone is always left out. “You can’t invite everybody and you always include somebody. That’s why I have trouble with parties,” Joy Behar added.

She also shared the inspiration she got from Barbara Walters, who created The View and made it what it is today. Joy Behar credits the co-host for her long-standing career.

“I miss Barbara. I do miss Barbara,” Joy continued. “Thank you, Barbara, for giving me a job like this that has lasted so many years.”

  1. She should retire. She is too much, very impolite, mouthed, she doesn’t respect anyone, specially when they don’t agreed with the leftovers minds. Too old, I can see her age, even after plastic surgery (facelift) and all her Botox. She should be replaced by a younger intelligent person who respect different opinions about anything like politics perhaps? Thanks a bunch! bye
