Whoopi’s Shocking Reaction to Joy’s Public “Insult” on The View

During the latest episode of The View on ‌ABC, Joy Behar, who has been a host on the show since its debut in 1997, revealed that she was “happy” when she‌ was let go⁤ from the show in 2013. The reasons for her sudden departure were ⁤never disclosed by the network, but she returned to the program ⁣just two years later.

The topic of Behar’s firing was brought up during the show’s discussion⁤ of an ⁢interview she gave to Time Magazine last year. In the interview, she expressed ‌her contentment with being ⁤fired from The View.

Behar did not⁤ take her firing personally, as she has faced career setbacks‍ throughout her time in the television‌ and⁤ Hollywood industry. However, she has always managed to bounce back.

In her interview with ⁢Time Magazine, Behar stated, “I⁢ was​ glad to be fired (from The ⁢View). I was basically sick of the show at that point for some reason. I​ don’t even remember why.”

During the⁢ recent episode ⁢of The View, Behar responded to‍ the topic by saying,‍ “I always have friends where I work, and if I​ don’t ⁤have ‍friends at the job, I will‍ not keep the job. So, when I was fired last time from this ⁣show, people said to me, ‘Were you okay with that?’ and my answer is, I ​was happy because all my‌ friends had left already. So, there was no reason to stay anymore. ⁢I mean it.”

Whoopi Goldberg, who was a co-host of The View‍ at the time of Behar’s firing, jokingly responded, “Really? All your ⁤friends left?”⁢ before ​pretending‌ to cry and ​adding, “It’s okay. I’m cool.”

Behar clarified her statement by‌ saying, “You had⁣ just come on, ​and my backstage friends⁤ had left.‍ And I don’t like to work when I don’t have ‍friends.”

Goldberg was initially taken aback by⁢ Behar’s comment, but she​ quickly brushed⁢ it off, stating that they had been friends for ‍a long time before ⁢becoming co-hosts on The View in 2013.⁣ She added⁣ that she was only teasing Behar ‌about her‌ words.

Behar has confirmed that she was fired from The View in 2013 and that‍ it was not her decision to leave the popular⁤ daytime talk show.

“Somebody wanted me gone,” she told⁢ People Magazine in 2017. “It‍ was not 100 percent my choice. When they told me they weren’t renewing, I said, ‘Good, I’m out of here.’ ⁤I didn’t like the way the show was going at that time.”

Behar has a unique way ⁢of handling insults from others.

Fellow host of The View, Sunny Hosting, stated, “She doesn’t hold a grudge. I​ think because she doesn’t remember what ⁤happened the day before.” Hosting added that Behar may sometimes be reminded of ⁣an insult made against her, but she simply shrugs ⁤it off and ‍remains‍ calm. “That’s how she’s been able to deal‍ with this show. She just leaves it at the table and then moves on for another day.”
