Joy Behar is the longest-serving co-host on The View known for her one-liners that break tense moments during heated debates. The political pundit has been on the ABC talk show since the beginning and it is inconceivable to think about it without her.
Behar had been absent from the show for the past week as she had taken time off to vacation in London. At the top of the show, Whoopi Goldberg brought up the subject and the stand-up comic let loose about her adventure across the pond.
“I was in London for a few days, just [because] I wanted to go,” she said. “Life is short, you’ve got to take advantage of any time, you know what I mean?”
Behar lives in the moment, but it was not all fun for the television personality. The morning co-host revealed that she suffered a robbery while shopping in England.
“Well, I got robbed at Harrods. They stole my wallet,” she continued with her co-hosts gasping. “I was pickpocketed, yes.”
More bad experiences for Joy Behar
It was unfortunate that Behar had a bad experience during what was supposed to be a stress-free vacation. However, that was not the only horrible thing that happened to her.
“I went to the Churchill war rooms from World War II, they were under there,” she added. “I had such a claustrophobia attack I can’t even tell you. It was like, ‘Get me to the gift shop immediately.'”
Behar suffered a panic attack as being underground seemed to be overwhelming for her. She finished off by revealing that she went to see a play, but things were not better there either.
“I went to see Ian McKellen, this famous British actor, who gave a one-man show for three hours. I didn’t understand a word he said,” she revealed.
From what Behar said on The View, it didn’t seem like she enjoyed her trip very much. The good thing is that she has a great sense of humor and was able to laugh away at all the setbacks.
While Joy Behar was away
Meghan McCain usually spars with Behar on the “Hot Topics” table as they seem to not agree on anything in politics. While the comic was away, McCain snapped at Goldberg in a moment that has now gone viral.
Earlier in the week the co-hosts that include Goldberg, McCain, Sunny Hostin, and Abby Huntsman, were discussing the democratic debate. All of the ladies took turns to talk about what they thought about the candidates vying for the nomination of the democratic party.
McCain brought up Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a candidate she was initially excited about, but now is questioning. The Republican pundit is not seeing eye-to-eye with him on certain topics and she suggested he return to The View to have a debate.
“When he first came on the show, I loved him, and now I’m kind of done with the far left… whatever,” McCain said.
As the conservative co-host gave her opinion, she stopped mid-thought after seeing Goldberg laughing while she talked.
“Why are you laughing at me?” McCain asked Goldberg.
The “Sister Act” star goes on to explain that she laughed because she equated McCain’s reaction to a marriage. McCain laughed it off and the moment didn’t turn into a screaming match as she was able to show she has a sense of humor.
