Joy Behar hasn’t revealed much since she announced she was escaping The View. But now, for the first time she is telling all, including insight on the rumor’s that Elizabeth Hasselbeck was going to be fired for her political views.
“If the Pope can quit then so can I,” Joy told NBNROB on the set of her Current TV show. “I don’t know anything about Elizabeth but to say she was getting fired because of her politics is crazy. Have you ever seen the show? It’s about different points of view!”
This morning Barbara Walters attempted to set the record straight saying she wished to address “a particularly false story.” Barbara said that reports that Elizabeth’s political views that she expressed on the show were not getting her fired.
“We love Elisabeth,” said Barbara, adding, that the others appreciate her political differences, too. But without being specific, she did leave open the door that Elizabeth herself might be thinking about leaving.
Concerning her own bright future, Joy has said that she wants to host a new interview show of her own. And amongst media insiders is a leading name as someone who would be able to help CNN become an American powerhouse again.
Tune in tonight to CURRENT TV “Joy Behar-Say Anything.”
