Behar responded this morning on The View to a report from Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh, author of Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View, that she was planning to retire from the show after her contract came up in summer 2022. "In the midst of this coronavirus, a lot of news outlets are interested in any kind of news they can get," she said. "What I did say to the reporter who reported this was, if I'm as fabulous in 2022 as I am now, I'll probably be here, You just don't know. No one knows that they're going to do in the next two years. You can't predict anything. As of now, as of today, the answer's no, I'm going nowhere."
