THE View fans have started to become worried about host Joy Behar after she missed her second day in a row.

As for Joy, very few details were given, making fans extra concerned.
Whoopi explained to the audience at the start of Monday’s episode: “We have to tell you, Sara is out with Covid. We want her to get well soon.
“Joy does not have Covid, but she’s not in today. She’s taking the day off.”
Though fans noticed Joy was once again missing from the show on Tuesday, Whoopi did not give any updates on her whereabouts.
One worried fan tweeted: “Where’s @JoyVBehar? I hate it when she’s not there.”
They added: “I hope she’s ok.”
Another asked: “Where’s Joy??”
A third wrote, “No Joy again,” before adding that they were going to change the channel without her on The View.
A fourth wondered: “Wait a minute! Where’s Joy?!?”
To which a fellow stunned fan replied: “ANOTHER day off??”
The host is the only original panelist on The View, having joined when it first premiered 25 years ago.
Joy’s absence comes after the cast was in the Bahamas for a week, in celebration of the show’s 25th anniversary.
