Breaking, Joy Behar Out At ‘The View'

The ABC daytime talk show “The View” has been a bastion of anti-Trumpism and one of the leaders of that has been Joy Behar.
But now she has decided to leave the show for the time being over fears of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Behar announced her decision during a pre-taped episode of “The View” that is set to air on Friday, Variety reported.
The 77-year-old comedian and co-host of the show cited her advanced age as the reason she has for taking time off the show.
“I’m in a higher risk group because of my age, but I’m perfectly healthy,” she said. “I don’t look my age, but I’m actually up there. The number makes me dizzy.”
“Behar will not be on ‘The View’ next week, and then she’ll decide when to return after that,” Variety said.
“The remaining co-hosts of ‘The View’ – which includes Whoopi Goldberg, Meghan McCain and Sunny Hostin – will continue to appear on the talk show,” it said.
“This week, ‘The View’ followed many other daytime and late-night programs that stopped allowing a live studio audience at tapings,” it said.
The coronavirus panic has hit the entertainment sports industries hard this week with the NBA suspending its season for the time being.
Major League Baseball has pushed back its Opening Day for two weeks and Major League soccer also suspended its season.
The NCAA March Madness men’s and women’s tournaments have been cancelled, not postponed and Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson announced they have coronavirus.
One of the most frightening closings for many was the decision of Disneyland in California to close all of its parks.
“While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at Disneyland Resort, after carefully reviewing the guidelines of the Governor of California’s executive order and in the best interest of our guests and employees, we are proceeding with the closure of Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, beginning the morning of March 14 through the end of the month,” it said on its website.
“The Hotels of Disneyland Resort will remain open until Monday, March 16 to give guests the ability to make necessary travel arrangements; Downtown Disney will remain open.
“We will monitor the ongoing situation and follow the advice and guidance of federal and state officials and health agencies. Disney will continue to pay cast members during this time.
“Disneyland Resort will work with guests who wish to change or cancel their visits, and will provide refunds to those who have hotel bookings during this closure period.
“We anticipate heavy call volume over the next several days and appreciate guests’ patience as we work hard to respond to all inquiries,” it said.
