Joy Behar Marries Long-Term Boyfriend

Feeling pressured to say “I do” in your relationship? If you start to think it will never happen, look at Joy Behar.

After 29 years of courtship, the host of ABC’s The View has married her very long-term boyfriend. Behar, 68, and the man she has referred to as her “spousal equivalent,” Steve Janowitz tied the knot in New York last night. The comedienne and talk show host actually first announced plans to marry Janowitz back in 2009, but later called off the impending nuptials due to “cold feet” after everyone got all up in her business about it.

Behar has been married before- she wed Joe Behar in the mid-sixties and they divorced in the early 80’s. Behar’s reps confirmed the wedding in a statement, and indicated that details will be shared when The View returns to the air:

“She was married in New York City last night in a private ceremony. She will discuss it on Sept. 6 on The View when the show returns for the 15th season.”

Behar isn’t the only View star tying the knot while the girls are on break from the daytime talk show. Could co-star Sherri Sheppard’s weekend wedding plans have influenced Behar’s decision to get hitched after so long? Sheppard has been tweeting up a storm about her upcoming big day, in contrast to her co-star’s reticence to speak on the matter. Just last night, Sheppard said on Twitter:

Just had the most amazing bachelorette party with Bridesmaids… much food, laughter & love in this room …can’t wait to open my gifts… Going to bed now… Sal is in his suite. My last day as a single woman. Thank you Jesus for being in the midst of all this. Gotta get sleep

Sheppard will be marrying Lamar Sally today.
