The View host Joy Behar jokes she's been 'trying to get rid of her co-hosts' as fans demand show fires Whoopi | The Sun

The View host Joy Behar has joked that she's been "trying to get rid" of her co-hosts.

It comes after fans demanded that the show fire Whoopi Goldberg, 66.

Joy, 79, made the comments after former co-host Sherri Shepherd appeared on Tuesday's episode.

"Sherri, you always wanted your own show, right?" asked Joy, referring to the View-alum's new talk show, Sherri, which premieres in September.

However, before Sherri could answer, Joy continued: "Well, who doesn't!"

The panel all burst out laughing as she added: "I can't get rid of them, no matter how I try!"

Sherri spilled some exciting details about her upcoming show, which is a replacement for The Wendy Williams Show.

She promised "crazy stuff" on air and "an escape" for her daytime viewers.

The Chicago native revealed: "We've got somebody really famous doing the soundtrack".

Meanwhile, Joy has no plans to leave The View, of which she is the only remaining original star.

Although Joy was joking when she said she wanted her own show, it's true that some fans have not been happy with moderator Whoopi recently.


Last month, The View fanatics launched an online petition to fire the longstanding host.

Whoopi got into hot water with fans in January after she claimed the Holocaust, which involved the murder of six million Jews and other victims, was not "about race."

She was briefly suspended from the talk show, though many viewers haven't forgiven the actress for her remark.

A petition circulated on, insisting that Whoopi be let go of her hosting duties for her "repulsive verbiage and actions."
