The View Joy Behar was reportedly accused of being a diva. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, she went missing from the show. Fans have been concerned about the 79-year-old after her previous extended hiatus in July. Some think she has a mysterious illness that she doesn’t want to discuss.
She hosts ABC’s The View alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, and newbie Alyssa Farah Griffin. She reportedly threw shade at a former co-host behind the scenes. The incident took place during the Thursday, September 8 broadcast of the daytime talk show. Read on to see what happened.
The View host spills hot tea about alum
An alleged eyewitness told The Sun that Joy Behar spilled the tea about a former co-host. It took place during the Q&A portion of the show. During the commercial break, the hosts encourage the audience members to ask questions. One fan asked Joy if she would ever write a book about her experience on the talk show.
“I’ve been here since the beginning. I know a lot of stuff and secrets,” Joy Behar reportedly said, per The Sun.
The comedian backtracked on the idea. She mentioned a woman who penned a memoir in the hopes to expose Hollywood but died shortly after. Joy joked: “I’m not taking any risks!” That’s when she called out a former co-host who called her a diva.
“One of my co-hosts got angry because our faces are on the mug we drink out on the show,” Joy Behar admitted. “She accused him of making me look skinnier than her!”
Both Sara and Sunny were curious to know who the former co-host was. Joy refused to name names. She’s taking this secret to her grave. This isn’t the first time that she spilled tea backstage at the taping. Another incident took place during the Tuesday, July 26 broadcast.
Did Joy Behar shade a fellow co-host?
Following the “Hot Topics” segment, the hosts took part in another Q&A panel with the audience. According to another eyewitness, one audience member praised the hosts for remaining civil during difficult conversations. Joy Behar said that most of them like to stick to the topic at hand. They refuse to get personal, even if they disagree with one another.
“Unlike some people!” Joy Behar added.
The audience clapped and howled at her. Joy didn’t mention who she was talking about. She might’ve meant her former co-host Meghan McCain, who quit the show after four seasons. Meghan was notorious for constantly arguing with Joy and bringing up her late father.
