The Day Margo Arrowsmith was on the Joy Behar Show
No, not The View but the Joy Behar Show. Radio. I listened every day. It was a more real talk show, not an advice show like Dr Laura or Joy Browne, not a political show like Limbaugh or Air America. A real talk show. The subjects were varied, kind of like hot topics on The View. People called in to give their opinions and Joy Behar really listened. There was real conversation. I listen every day and loved it.
One day a woman called in to complain that 'the state' had taken away her children and of course, she was totally innocent. Of course, there was a chance that she was right, but it was slim. So I called to give the other side. I knew of too many parents who did horrible things with their kids and were given too many chances to change before their kids were 'taken' often too late. But that is another story, another lens.
I called and Joy's screener told her about me. Joy did something very unusual. We were soon on a three way call! I listen to a lot of talk radio, but never heard this. But that was Joy thinking. I have called other shows, rarely, but I have. The talk was closely controlled to the host's agenda. This did not happen this day. Joy seemed to really want to hear both sides and took the opportunity to do so, letting her audience join along.
I also remember the day, after Lisa Sliwa had come to the show regularly, when the two of them made a casual remark about Rush Limbaugh. They said that Rush was crabby because he 'wasn't getting any'. Now, it wasn't the nicest thing to say, but compared to the remarks Rush makes about his enemies, it was very mild.
Limbaugh, who says anything and everything about anyone he wants, went to the station owners complaining, demanding an apology or their jobs. Joy Behar handled it with dignity and really won. She said that she needed to pay her mortgage and this little thing was not worth losing her show. Thus she apologized. I don't think that Rush realized that she had beaten him. Class won out Perhaps Michael Steele and others should take a note from Joy Behar's book. Heck, he doesn't really have the power over the Republicans that he had over Joy. But enough about them....
Get to know Joy Behar. Enjoy!
Three reasons to love Joy Behar
1. Joy Behar is a mother, a former school teacher who has not forgotten her roots. She is down to earth, thinks through things from unique angles and speaks her mind, while still being open to hearing what others think.
2. She is a self made stand up comedian. This has always been difficult to do, but Joy did it at a time when it was many times harder for women. She rose through the ranks when the policy was allow only one woman on any show, if there were any at all.
3. She is entertaining on The View and has shown herself to be able to handle more serious shows by herself. She has subbed for Larry King where she was maybe the only person to leave Anne Coulter speechless.

Life is full of ups and downs. And while keeping your chin up may hide a double chin, it won’t improve your mood. Looking on the bright side will make you squint, which will lead to crow’s feet, and there is nothing cheerful about crow’s feet. Listen, if you’re feeling down, it’s going to take a lot more to set things right than insipid platitudes about a cloud with a silver lining. (What is that anyway? Acid rain, or what?) In When You Need a Lift, comedienne Joy Behar and a host of her friends share the simple, silly, profound, and personal things they turn to for comfort when life gets hard. For Joy, it’s her sense of humor and handbags. Not surprisingly, music legend Burt Bacharach turns to songwriting and performing. Kaye Ballard indulges with a big bowl of pasta. Beau Bridges counts his blessings. Former First Lady Barbara Bush finds solace in the work of Jane Austen. Tony Danza plays the ukulele. Larry King recommends laughter—tell a joke, read a funny book; every time you laugh, a little sadness slips away. And that’s some advice you can actually use.
