When my son, Colby, and I appeared on The View a few months ago about Date My Single Kid, I sat next to Joy Behar and liked her spunk. I even wrote a complimentary blog about her that day.
I’ve changed my opinion. First, I learned that she made an offhand, snide comment about me at the end of the show when the ladies were milling around. My brother-in-law taped the whole show and heard her say: “That mother!” Joy was obviously disgusted by me for creating DMSK so moms could help their kids find mates.
But the real reason I no longer think Joy is a joy is because she’s sanctimonious and classless. Her recent epithet against Sharron Angle, who is running as a Republican for US Senate in Nevada, was distasteful. And what was the point of storming off the show when Bill O’Reilly accused Muslims of 911? Does she storm out of her own home when a guest says something she doesn’t like? O’Reilly is an idiot and Sharron is no bargain, but barging out is immature.
I guess Joy forgot the name of the show. If she disagrees with someone’s point of view, isn’t she supposed to give hers intelligently, if not forcefully? Leaving the set and using the b-word against a fellow FOF are acts of an angry person. Come to think of it, Joy’s comedy shtick is pretty angry most of the time.
