Joy Behar’s recent absence from The View has sparked significant worry and concern among fans, prompting numerous questions about whether she is still on the show. Her absence has led to widespread speculation, with viewers seeking updates on her whereabouts and whether she will return to the beloved daytime talk show.

So, is Joy Behar still on The View? Or did she leave the show? Here’s all you need to know.

Joy Behar is still on The View and did not leave the daytime talk show.

Speculation about Behar leaving The View began when she missed two consecutive days of the show. Concerns arose over whether she had been let go. However, Whoopi Goldberg swiftly addressed the rumors, clarifying that Behar was absent due to illness. According to Decider, Goldberg mentioned on the show on May 22, “Joy is out sick today, but we’ll let her know you love her too.”

Behar has previously reflected on her future with The View, according to Deadline. During a discussion among the hosts about Jason Kelce’s retirement from the NFL earlier this year, Behar shared her thoughts about eventually leaving the show and what she would miss the most. She said, “When I leave this show, it will not be because I’m worried about my future. It’ll be because I will miss my friends. That’s basically it.”

In an interview with People in October 2022, Behar emphasized that retirement isn’t on her agenda. She said, “I just signed a contract, so I’ll be here for a while. I have no plans to retire.” Behar further expressed deep admiration for her work on the show and said, “I’m happy to be a part of it. So no, I’m not going anywhere. I’m having a good time.”
