Joy Behar: Why I Finally Got Married After 29 Years
Joy Behar waited 29 years to become a lawfully wedded bride -- what took her so long?
At first, Behar regaled the audience with her top 10 reasons for getting hitched, which included feeling "embarrassed asking about senior discounts for her 'boyfriend," being "sick of Barbara Walters bugging [me] to get married," and because she "is hoping to get on the cover of Brides Magazine AARP edition."
All kidding aside, Behar said that she and Janowitz decided to make things official once gay marriage became legal in New York.
Oh, and there was one other reason, too: "If he was going to get down on one knee, I wanted it be during the time when he could still get up from one knee!"
The View co-host was previously married to Joe Behar from 1965-1981. They have one daughter, Eve, who was born in 1970.
