Guests including Joan Rivers, Regis Philbin, Meredith Vieira, Susie Essman and more surprised Behar, who sat front and centre on stage. Co-hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd sat in the front row of the audience. Notably absent was Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who exited The View last month after co-hosting for a decade.
“I’m going to have my sentimental moment whether you like it or not,” Walters said. “I love you, Joy. Thank you and thank you and thank you. We are really going to miss you.”
Behar had the last word and said she wanted to thank so many people. First and foremost, Behar said, she wanted to thank her hair and makeup people. “You saw how I started off, it wasn’t pretty,” she said.
It sure wasn’t, but how could we forget such moments as this one….?
