THE View fans have begun begging for answers after Joy Behar’s missing from the show for the third day in a row.
The 79-year-old’s absence from the table remains a mystery, as her fellow co-hosts skip sharing updates on her whereabouts.
Sara Haines remains absent from the show due to Covid-19, and guest co-host Ana Navarro had her first day off this week with Wednesday’s show.
Joy, though, continued her unannounced mystery absence for the third day in a row, leaving fans to wonder where she is and if she, too, is sick.
The View moderator Whoopi Goldberg shared a small update on Joy on Monday but has not revealed anymore details about the absent host since then.
The hosts were in the Bahamas for a week to have a working vacation in celebration of the show’s 25th anniversary, and then they had a hiatus off from the show last week.
