Joy Behar leaving 'The View'
By SANDY COHEN , AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Joy Behar will be enjoying "The View" for only five more months.

The 70-year-old comedian is leaving the ABC daytime talk show at the end of the current season in August. The network said in a statement Thursday that it wishes Behar "all the best in this next chapter, and are thrilled that we have her for the remainder of the season."

Behar has co-hosted the show for 16 seasons. She was among the first co-hosts with co-creator Barbara Walters when the series debuted. The current panel includes Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd.

In addition to "The View," Behar hosted "The Joy Behar Show" on HLN from 2009 to 2011 and currently hosts "Joy Behar: Say Anything!" on Current TV, which debuted last year.

Joy Behar is fantastic, funny, smart, sassy, witty and so much more. I will miss her for sure. Shes my fav.  I like the others women also, particularly Whoopi. I may not even continue to watch " The View" after Joys departure.

Hopefully she'll be replaced someone intelligent.  Waste of time to watch anyway.  I still can't believe that Barbara Walters would stoop that low.

Good riddance to a loud-mouthed cavona suffering from convo interruptus!
