Joy Behar Explains Why She Married Boyfriend Of 29 Years

“After a honeymoon for 29 years, we decided to ruin it and get married … [The passage of gay marriage in New York] did have an influence on me — it brought to my consciousness why gays needed to get married. And I thought it was a good reason for me to get married. And so did Steve, so we did it … 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.”

—Joy Behar explains why she and boyfriend Steve Janowitz decided to get married last month, after being together for 29 years without tying the knot. Funny. I so want to know if, after nearly three decades together, being newlyweds feels any different. Tell us, Joy. [CNN]

Joy Behar Will Judge Miss America Pageant Based On “Intelligence, Talents”

“I realize it is out of character for me to be judging Miss America. But maybe it will make the show more modern or bring it up to date. I do always find the odd girls prettier. But I don’t think I am going to judge anybody on their beauty as much as their intelligence and their talents. … This is a complete departure for me. But I have a permission slip from Gloria Steinem.”

— “The View” gabber Joy Behar explains why she’s the newly announced 2011 Miss America pageant judge. I guess Rush Limbaugh was busy this year? [NY Post] Keep reading »

Joy Behar To Judge The 2011 Miss America Pageant

Color me shocked: Joy Behar, the one co-host of “The View” who makes any damn sense, will be judging the 2011 Miss America pageant. Now, if the qualities needed to rate women in bikinis include not being a misogynist and a prescription pill addict, Joy Behar is a vast improvement over last year’s judge, Rush Limbaugh. Still, what is this woman thinking? Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Joy Behar Told Sharron Angle To “Go To Hell, B-Word”

  • Nevada Republican Senate nominee Sharron Angle is one of the scariest politicians I know of. She believes a woman or girl who got pregnant via incest or rape should be forced to give birth — but Joy Behar should not have called her a “bitch” and said Angle is “going to hell.” “The View” aired Sharron Angle’s latest TV commercial, which some say portrays Latinos as a threat to white people. When it was done airing, Behar called Angle “a moron on top of being evil” and said she’s “going to hell, this bitch.” Point taken, Joy, but calling a female politician a bee-yotch? Not helpful.

Colbert Tells “The View” To Leave “Papa Bear” Alone


The women of “The View” definitely learned one thing from Stephen Colbert‘s visit yesterday: Don’t mess with Papa Bear. That’s Colbert’s nickname for Bill O’Reilly. In a show of solidarity with O’Reilly, Colbert pretended to walk off the set of “The View” yesterday during his segment. Colbert’s gesture was in reference to O’Reilly’s controversial “View” visit last week, where both Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walked off set in the midst of O’Reilly’s interview.

“Jersey Shore” And “The View” Talk Condoms And Hot Tubs

Someone said the word “condom” in Elisabeth Hasselbeck‘s presence and her head did not explode! (We cannot speak for Sherri Shepherd, though.) Thank you, Joy Behar, for asking tough questions of the “Jersey Shore” cast when they visited “The View.”

P.S. I apologize for any painful mental images that may have resulted from reading that headline. Keep reading »
