BABA AND BEHAR…BUH-BYE??
Acid-tongued comedienne JOY BEHAR’s the last lassy standing of the original 1997 panel of co-hosts BARBARA WALTERS picked for “The View” – but after 15 years, the old pals are flat-out sick of each other, say friends and show insiders.
“They now get on each other’s nerves enormously,” said one source. “Barbara’s always accusing Joy of talking over her during segments. But when Joy says she’s been on the show too long to hold her tongue, Barbara shoots back that maybe she’s just been on the show too darn long! They’ve never pulled punches in their long-standing friendship, but lately it’s turned much more acrimonious. They’re the female version of Grumpy Old Men.”
Word is Behar’s itching to leave “The View” if her Current TV talk show “Say Anything!” clicks.
“Joy admits she may indeed be past her expiration date,” said one pal. “She and Barbara now argue about everything!”
