Deadline Hollywood is reporting tonight that Joy Behar is leaving ABC’s “The View” after 16 and a half years on the show and is in the market for “an intelligent talk show where you have room to breathe.”
Behar’s talk show on Current TV is ending with the network’s acquisition by Al Jazeera, leaving the host looking for new opportunities. She says she’s writing a play and might get back into stand-up comedy. Will President Eye Candy stop by for one last love-in on the big couch for a special farewell?
Joy Behar is leaving The View…I can't…it's just…what am I supposed to do NOW?

Whoa, @JoyVBehar is leaving The View. Excuse me while I dress up like Tootsie and try to get an audition.

Only one question looms larger than who will fill Behar’s seat.
Joy Behar is leaving The View after 16 years… OMG. The View has been around for more than 16 years!?
