Joy Behar Net Worth $8 Million

A well-known talk show host, as well as an actress, how rich is Joy Behar? According to sources, Joy Behar’s net worth is estimated to be $8 million, most of which she has accumulated from her many appearances on television screens.

Joy Behar was born in 1942, in New York, United States, where she attended Queens College, graduating from it with a degree in sociology, and later enrolled in the State University of New York, in order to complete a Master of Arts degree in English education. Upon her graduation, she worked as an English teacher in Linderhurst Senior High School. Her career in the television industry started in the 1980s, when she joined the “Good Morning America” crew, where she initially worked as a receptionist, and later rose to become a producer. Eventually, she was able to host her own show entitled “Way Off Broadway”, and even made several appearances in various movies. Joy Behar rose to prominence almost a decade later, when she was invited to join “The View”, for which she later received an award. Aside from being involved in the latter show, Behar has managed to launch her own talk shows, namely “The Joy Behar Show” and “Joy Behar: Say Anything!”. Behar succeeded at being occupied with both shows, until in 2013 she announced her intention to leave “The View”. That same year, “Joy Behar: Say Anything!” was taken off air, as a result of Current TV being changed to the Al Jazeera America channel.

In regards to her personal life, Joy Behar was married to Joe Behar from 1965 until 1981. Together they have a daughter, Eve, who was born in 1970. A year after their separation, Joy Behar started dating Steve Janowitz, with whom she intended to get married in 2009. However, their marriage was postponed until 2011.
