Joy Behar Is Back: Joy Behar Returning As Host Of 'The View'
Joy Behar, who hosted "The View" for 16 years before departing in 2013, will be returning to the daytime talker as part of a massive revamp of the series.

The comedian stated that she was lured to return because of the upcoming presidential race.

“Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in,” Behar said. “I’m happy to be back home. And I’m looking forward to sticking my two cents into the hot topics, especially now that Hillary and the Donald are in the spotlight.”

“Full House” star Candace Cameron Bure will also join Whoopi Goldberg at the table, along with Paula Faris, Michel...

The View
Barbara Walters is claiming Elisabeth Hasselbeck is staying on talk show The View, but reports keep surfacing that the star's days are numbered.

Walters told the viewing audience that there are "no plans for Elisabeth to leave this show," but the New York Post claims that her conservative views are clashing with the audience. With Joy Behar confirming she is leaving the show, it is believed Hasselbeck could be swept out as well to retune the show.

The source tells the newspaper, "Dumping Joy Behar, who was there 16 years, and Hasselbeck would be the fastest way to do it, they decided. Aft...

Joy Behar
After 16 years, comedienne Joy Behar is quitting her job co-hosting "The View."

The daytime talk show debuted in 1997, and Behar has been a member of the all-female panel since the beginning. "The View" also features Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, Barbara Walters, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck among its co-hosts.

But the 70-year-old is ready for something different.

She told, "It seemed like the right time. You reach a point when you say to yourself, 'Do I want to keep doing this?' There are other things on my plate I want to do - I've been writing a play, I've been neglecting...

Is Jennifer Hudson really a size 0? That's the rumor Joy Behar has spread after meeting the singer in a clothing store. The View host says she overheard a clerk telling Hudson she was a size 0. Hudson has gone through a dramatic transformation since her Dreamgirls days - but is it really possible she is a size 0?

We definitely think she looks great, no matter the size. She has dropped a reported 80 pounds since the birth of her son David in 2009, and has become a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers.

Rocker Gene Simmons has promised to "work things out" with longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed after confessing things are not "terrific" between the couple.

Model Tweed stormed off the set of a TV interview with Simmons last week when the KISS rocker joked about his fabled philandering ways.

The couple bickered throughout a brief appearance together on The Joy Behar Show, with Tweed calling her partner "a pig" after he joked about his womanizing, before walking off the live segment, announcing, "It's over. It's so rude of you to joke about it."

Simmons has now addressed the break-up rum...

Kevin Smith
Clerks director Kevin Smith has dropped 65 pounds since he was asked to leave a plane because he was too fat.

The filmmaker was left fuming after he was ordered to evacuate his seat on a Southwest Airlines flight last February when he was deemed too big to fly. A year after the incident, Smith admits he has slimmed down after the humiliating experience prompted him to embark on a healthier lifestyle.

However, he refuses to trade his loose-fitting hockey jerseys for tighter clothing - because he's convinced he'll never have a slender build.

He tells TV host Joy Behar, "I sympathize far...

The View
Whoopi Goldberg stormed off the set of The View on Thursday after becoming infuriated during a heated debate over the planned 'Ground Zero Mosque' in New York.

A discussion with conservative broadcaster Bill O'Reilly spilled over when the controversial Fox News anchor argued against the Islamic center in downtown Manhattan.

The political pundit insisted it was highly insensitive to build the place of worship so close to where the city's Twin Towers crumbled in 2001, after Muslim extremists flew two planes into the high rise buildings, exclaiming, "Muslims killed us on 9/11."

But his outb...

Despite reports that she's planning to get married soon, the star has brushed off reports suggesting she will be Mrs. Joel Madden by the end of the year, insisting the celebrity couple is too busy to plan their nuptials.

The socialite sparked rumors her big day was imminent after whisking good friends Christina Aguilera and DJ Samantha Ronson off to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico for a supposed bachelorette party earlier this month.

Surprisingly, President Barack Obama was asked a lot of tough questions when he visited The View the other day. But that didn't mean the ladies didn't get to ask him if he's keeping up in entertainment.

"Should Snooki run as mayor of Wasilla?" Joy Behar asked, referring to the Jersey Shore star and Sarah Palin's hometown. "I've got to admit, I don't know who Snooki is," the President responded with a laugh.

"What's the first couple songs on your iPod?" asked Whoopi Goldberg.

"You name it," replied Obama. "You name a song; I've got it on there. I've got Jay-Z on there. I've got Frank ...
