Joy Behar Exits ‘The View,’ Fires a Four-Letter Shot at Harry Reasoner on Her Way Out the Door

Aug 9, 2013  •  Post A Comment

Joy Behar was never expected to go quietly. The 16-year veteran co-host got in one last shot before departing "The View," and she made it count, dropping a carefully aimed F-bomb on veteran newsman Harry Reasoner, the New York Daily News reports.

"Barbara Walters threw Joy Behar a 60-minute going-away party on ‘The View’ Friday and Behar said thanks by tossing a blunt F-word at an old Walters adversary," the report says. "Behar ended her brief farewell remarks at the end of the show by saying ‘something I’ve been meaning to say on [Walters'] behalf for 16 years: "F— Harry Reasoner." ‘ "

Reasoner, who died in 1991, was reportedly unhappy about being stuck with Walters as his co-anchor when Walters broke the gender barrier on the "ABC Evening News" back in the 1970s. Walters has said Reasoner made things tough on her at the time.

"Walters reacted to Behar’s comment Friday with a combination of a gasp and a laugh," the report notes.

  1. I’m fan of Joy Behar and have to say I’m rather surprised at her behavior… and towards a deceased person, at that.
    What an example of “class” in action. :^

  2. always the pig.

  3. Harry Reasoner Has Been Dead For Over 10 Years. She Was Always “Misinformed”!!

  4. what a classy fat retarded cow

  5. I’m so glad this “Nut Case” is gone from this show. No class, no self restraint, no brain. I’m not surprised by her boorish behavior.

  6. I’m sad Joy is leaving, she’s been the constant breath of fresh air on The View. Hope her show on Current stays as it’s always GREAT but Al-Jazira is cleaning house with most all their cable channel programming here in the U.S. It’s as good as Joy’s great show on HLN and gives her a lot of freedom to do what she does best. Each year I’ve given Joy and her shows major props in my “Best of TV” awards. Barbara never has a mean thing really to say about anyone, and one must see how loyal Joy is to her. So you haters should get a grip. It was funny. Maybe not in the best taste, but funny and this is America where not just a comic newspersona but anyone should be able to speak freely.

  7. Really!!! then you don’t watch her much that is just her style it was a nice jester for her dear friend Barbara Walters.
