Comedian Joy Behar is the only original member of The View other than Barbara. "This is the longest job I've ever had," she says. "It's been a really great ride. I mean, it's a fun job, let's face it."
Joy says this is a perfect job for her because she's always been interested in hot topics. "All my life I was politically interested. All my life I've been reading the newspapers. My ex-husband and I, we marched on Washington during the Vietnam War."
For the last 28 years, Joy has been with who she calls her "spousal equivalent." Two years ago, they got engaged but Joy eventually decided marriage wasn't for her. "I get scared by marriage," she says. "I've decided I'll marry him on my death bed because then when they say ‘'Till death do you part,' it will only be five more minutes."
