NO JOY IN BEHAR'S TRUE FEELINGS FOR ROSIE

By JEFF SAMUELS

Joy Behar wants Barbara Walters to clean house at "The View" and fire Elisabeth Hasselbeck and then Rosie O'Donnell.

That's the latest development in the behind-the-scenes backstabbing at the ABC show where the bad blood among the co-hosts seems to know no limits.

Joy is turned off by Rosie's cruel, catty rants, say sources.

"Joy rooted for Rosie from the start," said a show insider. "Now she's had it with her taking over the show."

Joy was particularly upset when Rosie referred to Oprah Winfrey as "Opie" and then said that the talk show queen and her best friend Gayle King were "a little bit gay."

Joy was seen shaking her head after the segment and said Rosie was an accident waiting to happen, according to sources.

And while Joy will continue to "play nice" on the air, she's hoping Barbara will soon decide she's had enough of Rosie's overbearing antics, said the source. She also wants Barbara, the clear leader on the show, to get rid of Hasselbeck, whose conservative politics truly annoy her.
