ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s at least what Behar told TV GuideÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Michael Logan. She says the ten year old show got a Ã¢â‚¬Å“big shot in the armÃ¢â‚¬? when Rosie arrived this fall. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s like weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve gone radical,Ã¢â‚¬? the outspoken liberal comic said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“There were certain restraints before Ã¢â‚¬â€ I won’t go into what that dynamic was Ã¢â‚¬â€ but the restraints have been lifted and Rosie and I encourage each other to say whatever we want. Can you call her and tell her to stay?Ã¢â‚¬?
Wow, sounds like everything going well on the View set, despite rumors Joy was feeling outshined by the more well known funny lady from Nyack. Joy officially cleared the airÃ¢â‚¬â€itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not true.
<blockquote><div>People were afraid. They said, “Two comedians? No way. They’ll be competitive.” Well, it’s not true. It’s a much better match than people thought.</div></blockquote>
HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what else she had to sayÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Joy on Donald Trump:
<blockquote><div>He’s very small. And you know what they say about guys like that: small-minded, smallÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ well, you know where I’m going. He’s a pain. But you know what? It juices up the show because Rosie gets mad. She can’t take it. </div></blockquote>
On the possibility of finally finding a replacement for Star Jones:
<blockquote><div>I say leave it alone. It’s working the way it is!</div></blockquote>
On the rotating roster of guest hosts that have been sitting in:
<blockquote><div>I’m not wild about the idea unless it’s someone the audience already knows really well, like Whoopi Goldberg. That way we can jump into the hot topics immediately without having to explain who the guest host is and take up time interviewing her.</div></blockquote>
