According to The U.S. Sun, as retirement rumors keep whirling around, her recent podcast interview on 'Behind the Table' offered detailed insights. When questioned about her plans for the future by The View's executive producer, Brian Teta, Behar in a funny manner dismissed the notion of retiring, asserting that individuals like her don't retire but shift their focus. Brian asserted, "People are always asking me, 'Is it true Joy's retiring? Is Joy walking out?' I said you enjoy this too much. I think you like doing this," To which Behar answered, "First of all, people like me don't retire. I'm a creative person…I'm a writer. There's no such thing as retiring. You mean, will I quit this show? Okay, that's a more specific way of saying it. I don't want them taking me out here feet first." Teta ended the conversation exclaiming, "No, certainly not, but you'll outlive us all. I'm not worried about that."
Amidst all the retirement speculation, Behar is all set to captivate audiences once again with her witty, engaging, and insightful storytelling in her forthcoming book. As she continues to lend her dynamic presence and unique perspective to The View, her new literary endeavor promises to be another compelling chapter in her illustrious career.
