During this morning’s episode of The View, Joy Behar got feisty with a producer who wasn’t happy with something she said while on-air. The producer became more aggravated with the recently-returned talk show host when she ignored his request to cut to a commercial. Showing the producer absolutely no respect, Joy proceeded to broadcast the beef she was having with the crew member while she remained on live television.
The annoyed producer was quick to match Joy’s sassy energy. What happened exactly that caused Joy Behar and a producer of The View to go head-to-head while on-air? Keep reading for the details.
Joy Behar and the producer exchange blows on-air
Toward the start of the episode, Whoopi Goldberg kicked things off by going on a bit of a political rant. After her rant was interrupted, Whoopi explained to the viewers at home that the producer had held up a sign ordering her to stop talking. The same producer later exchanged blows with Joy Behar as well.
During a political rant of her own, Joy Behar ended up calling a politician a “loser.” The producer was not happy about it and quickly shut it down. Joy, however, ignored his request. Instead, she told the viewers at home the producer was unhappy with her because of the name she called the politician.
The producer matched Joy Behar’s energy by firing back that he did not like what she had said before sternly noting they needed to take a commercial break.
The View talk show host’s attitude didn’t stop there. In response, she rolled her eyes at the producer. Whoopi chimed in encouraging him to come up on the set and do the talking.
The View host hasn’t been back long
As viewers know, Joy Behar has been absent from the show for a little while now. Viewers learned she was out celebrating her 80th birthday. As TvShowsAce previously reported, some viewers worry she was away for more than just her birthday. Some suspect she has some health issues she’s currently trying to hide from the world. Her occasional coughing fits on the show have only fueled concerns there was something wrong with her.
