Joy Behar, 80, Calls Woman A ‘B****’ Because She Refused To Let Her ‘Pee In The First Class Lounge’
Joy Behar got in a fight at an airport in Italy, calling a woman the "B" word because she refused to let her "pee in the first class lounge."
Joy Behar went on a vacation to Italy last week while her ABC talk show “The View” took a spring break hiatus. When she made her return, Behar shockingly revealed that she called a woman a “b****” after they had an altercation in an Italian airport.

Behar’s Fight In Italy
When asked if she ate well on her trip, Behar replied, “Of course! There’s not a bad meal in Italy. It’s very hard to find.”
Traveling, however, was not a pleasant experience for the 80 year-old radically liberal comedian, who whined to her co-hosts that she was “reduced to coach” but didn’t reveal why because it was “too boring a story.” Instead, Behar went into detail about an altercation that she had with an airport employee.
“The people are very nice. Here and there I had a little — I had to call one woman the B-word. But that’s something else,” she said, according to Decider.
Seemingly not shocked by this, moderator Whoopi Goldberg asked if Behar said this curse word in English or in Italian.

“I said it in English because she wouldn’t let me pee in the first-class lounge,” Behar explained. “I said, ‘Please, let me just go.’ [She said], ‘No.’ I said, ‘Listen, don’t be a bitch.’ She wouldn’t let me go.”
“Well, after you called her that I’m sure she was gonna be like, ‘Come on in!’” co-host Sara Haines said with a laugh.
Despite this encounter, Behar concluded by praising the people of Italy.
“I have to say — not because I’m an Italian-American — I have to say they’re lovely,” she said. “The people are nice. They’re very nice. The food is good. The art is beautiful. What more do you want on a vacation? And the shopping is good, too!”

Behar Turns 80
Behar was one of the original hosts of “The View” when it premiered back in 1997, and though she was fired in 2013, she was brought back two years later and has remained on the show ever since. She celebrated her 80th birthday in October of last year, but despite this, she has “no plans” to retire.
“I just signed a contract so I’ll be here for a while,” Behar told People Magazine around the time of her birthday. “I have no plans to retire.”
“It’s really, you know, something that is an important show in many ways,” she went on to say of the ABC talk show. “Sometimes I don’t believe that, as I’ve been here since the beginning, but we’re the most-watched show in daytime. Most-watched! I’m happy to be a part of it. So no, I’m not going anywhere. I’m having a good time.”

Behar Defends Biden
Behar recently shamelessly used her age to defend President Joe Biden from accusations that he does not have the cognitive abilities necessary to run for president again.
“Joe Biden and I are the same age,” Behar said last month. “Would you say I could not do my job for the next four years? Of course I can.”
“And the haters can go stick their heads in something, because I’m not moving out of this seat,” she added.

Over her years on television, Behar has shown repeatedly that she lacks class, so it sadly comes as no surprise that she chose to curse out an airport employee who was just doing her job. It remains to be seen how much longer ABC executives will think it’s worth keeping Behar and her big mouth around!
