The View fans concerned about Joy Behar

On Monday’s live broadcast, viewers noticed that Joy Behar was absent. She’s been part of the show since 1997. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, the panelist shared her thoughts on turning 80. She also revealed that she misses OG cast member Barbara Walters.

Fans were missing Joy on Monday morning. Newcomer Ana Navarro was in her seat. She has signed on as a permanent co-host. However, Ana will appear a few days a week and on the days when Joy or Whoopi are out.

Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, and Alyssa were also at the round table. The View fans flocked to Twitter to find out what happened to Joy Behar. Most of them wanted to know why she was missing just a week after the show’s premiere.

  • “Where’s Joy?”
  • “Joy’s not there!”
  • “Did I miss the announcement about Joy? Hope she’s not ill.”
  • “Show ain’t worth watching without Joy.”

During the show, Whoopi didn’t reveal why Joy was out. The comedian had fans worried last season when she had a prolonged absence from the show. She first went missing toward the end of Season 25 in July. Some fans think Joy has a mysterious illness that she won’t talk about.

Battling secret illness?

Around that time, The View host Whoopi joked that Joy Behar was out because she got “pregnant” at 79 years old. Fans assumed it was a COVID outbreak since Sara was out the same week. When Joy returned, she said that it was a “bad virus.”

  1. As a older Italian American man born and raised in New Jersey who watches the view every morning, with my coffee and a little shot of whiskey (I call it my medicine) I was all concerned when I didn’t see Joyce, But now I’m glad she’s back, for some reason my coffee taste better watching when Joyce and Whoopi are on. Please keep this comment a secret, I always tell the boys on the corner, That I have to go home to use my bathroom but secretly I am watching The View behind closed doors. (It’s a tough guy thing) but if you really want to know, I think all my buddies (Goomba’s) also sneak off to watch the view because we all return back to the corner at the same time.
