Open Post: Hosted By Joy Behar Wiping Out On “The View”
Looks like Meghan McCain finally mastered the art of astral projection, because her nemesis and former The View co-host, 79-year-old Joy Behar, fell hard and had a Life Alert moment on the show today. Now, I’m not explicitly suggesting that Meghan used her dark spirit energy to shove Joy, but also… are we sure she didn’t?
The Wrap says that on her daily stroll up to the co-host table where she normally chats with Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, and occasionally Ana Navarro, Joy missed a step. Turns out that was a big step because it caused her ass to tumble. Here’s the clip:

Joy was in good spirits after the fall though.
“25 years, that has never happened,” Behar said with a laugh. “Who do I sue?!”
Though she was shaken, she joked that “I went flyin'” and reassured everyone she was not seriously hurt. The hosts then unanimously agreed that they hate the chairs that they sit in at the table, before getting into their actual Hot Topics of the day.
After the show returned from its first commercial break, the women poked more fun at what happened.
“I want to clear something up, because you know how things get out and do things. I just want to clear up, Sara did not trip Joy,” Whoopi joked. “She did not do it, and stop sending us texts!”
Joy’s fall became a sort of PSA, with her mentioning how Bob Saget fell and hit his head and eventually passed away from the incident, telling people that if they hit their head and “feel dizzy or you have blurred vision, or you feel like you want to go to sleep, go to the doctor. Because that will kill you.” But Joy will have many falls in the future because as she says on the show, “I’m a klutz!”
Meghan McCain is cackling wherever she is. Joy better be careful from here on out, although at least if she falls again at least Whoopi has a walker she can borrow. Don’t be surprised if the job description of the interns on The View suddenly starts including: “Walking Hosts to and from the table.”
