That’s quite a View she has there! Joy Behar sat down with Wendy Williams on Tuesday, Nov. 25, to discuss the recent changes at The View, as well as Bette Midler‘s comments about Ariana Grande.
Williams asked Behar whether she has plans to return to the ABC talk show where she served as a co-host for 16 years. “I don’t know,” Behar, 72, confessed. “I have sort of been there, done that. I don’t know. I wouldn’t go back for five days a week. I used to be on only three days a week and Barbara was on two days. That was a great system. Loved it.”
She added that conflicting perspectives on the show were expected, and co-hosts “have to be willing to hear other people’s positions.” She also joked at one point that the early stages of her career were great preparation for her time on the ABC program from 1997 to 2013. “I worked in a mental hospital, which I always say prepared me for The View,” Behar joked.
With that said, the comedienne admitted that there were two conservative ladies who tested her patience. “I like that little Republican over there. Nicole [Wallace],” Behar said of The View‘s newest co-host. “You know, I have dealt with Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Ann Coulter. This girl is like a day at the beach!”
Behar, who is currently starring on Broadway in a one-woman show called Me, My Mouth & I let her thoughts about Grande be known, too. Unlike her pal Bette Midler, who brushed off the “Problems” singer as “silly” and “ridiculous” on Monday, Nov. 24, Behar had a different perspective about today’s pop stars using their sex appeal to sell records.
“I don’t care if they’re naked. I don’t care,” Behar admitted. “Go ahead and show all your boobies, what do I care? You have to understand, our generation, mine and Bette, it was unheard of that someone would get famous from a sex tape. You went to jail, as a matter of fact. It’s a completely different world now.”
She mused: “Some of us… actually were virgins when we got married. Nowadays, who wants a virgin? Besides a Mormon and a terrorist. It’s not practical. If you’re in love with someone, what’s the difference if you’re married or not? I’m a slut in that way.”
