THE View fans have speculated that one specific host – Joy Behar – might be leaving the talk show after two new members have joined the cast.

Joy, 79, recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight about her longevity on the morning show.

The comedian joked about how “money and geography” were the only things keeping her on The View. 

The ABC star added: “Listen, I’ve been here for 25 years — and I’ve had a self-imposed hiatus for two.

“I just want to point that out. But I was here for most of the time. 

“So the new co-hosts know what to expect from me.”

Joy concluded: “I’m me, I’m Joy. People know me. They expect the same thing they’re getting again and again and again.” 


Fans claimed that Joy’s tenure on the morning show is coming to an end, due to the new additions to the panel. 

One fan tweeted: “I think Whoopi and Joy will step back a little till they retire from this show. #theview”

Another fan added: “I feel like they’re announcing Joy’s retirement when they come back because six hosts would be so chaotic. #TheView”


The fan theory of Joy leaving the show came about after guests Ana Navarro, 50, and Alyssa Farah Griffin, 33, recently landed permanent roles on the show.

Ana reportedly signed a multi-year deal to co-host the daytime TV show.

Whoopi Goldberg, 66, kickstarted the most recent installment: “As much as we love that song, Be Our Guest, there’s one person who’s way overqualified to be our guest anymore.

“Today, we’re proud to make another long overdue announcement that Ana Navarro is becoming an official co-host of The View.”

Whoopi continued: “She always has an unfiltered and quite hilarious take…“

“As Barbara Walters used to say, you know you’ve made it when you’ve been parodied on SNL.”

Ana replied: “After many years, many hairstyles, many pounds up and down…we’re finally putting a ring on it and making it official. I want to thank the very loyal View fans.”

Alyssa, the former Trump White House Director of Strategic Communications, added: “It is such an honor to be with you ladies every day on the set.

“I am so proud to have found my voice. I am here to join this table and hopefully bring a different perspective.”

She concluded: “I’m so excited about it. I’m ready for it.
