In particular, they started chatting about Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’ recent divorce.

Joy somehow got into a discussion at some point about how some people’s goal is to “own the libraries.”

As she spoke about the topic, which was completely different than what the women had started talking about, Whoopi had to intervene.

“What about Sophie?” Whoopi asked out of nowhere.

“What about Sophie Turner and Taylor Swift?”

“Oh, who cares?” Joy asked.

Whoopi had a retort ready.

She shouted, “Someone who said he wanted to talk about it!”

“I’m what they call extrapolation,” Joy said, grinning.

“But I’ll get you back to the point,” Whoopi asserted after glancing at her notecards.

Later, the two butted heads again.

Whoopi suspected that the change in subject was due to the current lack of writers on the series.

Whoopi joked that Joy “liked to correct her” and that she was “all over her” during the episode.

“You’re the one who corrected me,” Joy shot back.

Their argument culminated in Whoopi shouting, “I’m still sitting here!”

The other panelists did their best to get everyone back on track.


Recently, Joy warned the show’s executive producer, Brian Teta, about wearing certain things to work.

The View team debated the old adage about dressing for success on Tuesday’s episode of the talk show.

During the “Hot Topics” segment, ABC anchors Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, Alyssa Farah Griffin and Joy discussed what is appropriate for a person in Congress.

Panelist Sunny, 54, criticized U.S. Senators Kyrsten Sinema, 47, and Ted Cruz, 52, for not wearing appropriate attire for Capitol Hill.

Kyrsten once wore a pink wig – Sunny said it made her look like a unicorn – and Ted has worn a sweats outfit in the past.

The former CNN legal analyst stressed that the least members of Congress could do was “dress appropriately.”

Whoopi, 67, responded that she doesn’t care what people wear in office as long as they “do their jobs.”

Sara, 45, agreed with Sunny and added that there should be some dress code for the Congress.

Joy joked that she “wouldn’t want to see” 81-year-old Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in a tracksuit.

Alyssa had the same views as the rest of the table; Meanwhile, Whoopi maintained her stance.


Whoopi confessed that she felt employees “could come in bare bottomed if they wanted” as long as they were taking care of business.

“Please don’t do that,” Sara said hastily.

Joy said directly to her producer, “Brian don’t,” seemingly trying to stop him from getting any ideas.

Whoopi retracted her statement and urged the audience not to approach her job “naked.”

Courageous joy

Joy doesn’t mince her words on the show.

On a recent episode of The View’s Behind The Table podcast, she revealed that she didn’t have the same feelings for a co-host as her colleagues on the panel.

During the audio show, Joy, 80, and morning show executive producer Brian took a trip down memory lane.

The couple began to reminisce about the late Barbara Walters, a famous journalist who was a central figure from The View’s inception until 2014.

Barbara came up when they were talking about how they tried to stay on time at a certain time for each episode.

It was joked that former View panelist Sherri Shepherd, 56, teased that Barbara was the reason they were on time.

Apparently, Sherri confessed that Barbara would “kill” them if they were late.

Joy specified on the show that although Barbara was seen as intimidating and feared by those around her, she never got upset.

“I was never afraid of Barbara. I always went to her house for dinner,” Joy revealed.

“I always teased her…I was never afraid of Barbara. Not me,” she added, revealing that everyone else was “afraid” of the legendary TV personality.

Brian asked Joy if Barbara would cause fear in people in general, to which Joy clarified that people were “more intimidated than feared” by Barbara.
