In spite of Meghan McCain was on leave See for many months, Joy Behar Just can’t help but keep their epic feud going!
Based on Sun on Thursday, the 79-year-old comedian took a moment to defame Meghan during an off-camera moment on the daytime talk show last month. It all started after the live segment of Hot Topic in the Tuesday, July 16 episode of the series. That day’s host – Joy, Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Hainesand Sunny Hostin – did an interesting Q&A with the audience while playing some pre-shots.

One witness said one of the audience members applauded the women for being able to argue and still respect each other despite having different views on certain issues. That’s when Joy replied that the four hosts do their best to stay on topic and not get into “personal territory” during these debates before adding in some not-so-subtle shade:
“Unlike some people!”
Yes, a pretty clear piece of information about Meghan. As viewers know, the two have frequently had some sharp disagreements due to their different political and cultural views over the years. But their long-running feud really exploded after Joy’s cold response to Meghan’s return from maternity leave in January 2021. As you may recall, on the woman’s second day 37 years old and back See, she joked with her co-host that she “must miss her” when she was away for three months. Joy retorted:
“I didn’t. I didn’t miss you. No.”
This shocking moment became one of the reasons Meghan decided to leave the show in 2021. She later told Diversity that she was actually in tears during the promotional period that followed, plus a panic attack and run away in her office when the episode ended. She recalls:
“I had postpartum anxiety. When I came back, I was really nervous. It’s like starting the TV again. I feel unstable. I’m trying to joke, ‘You miss me so much.’ If you watch the clip, her reaction is very responsive. I can’t explain how it feels. My roommates in the DC office include a sound engineer and hair and makeup artists. The sound woman looked very shocked at what she had seen. “
When asked by the outlet if Joy had ever apologized, she said:
“I have requested an apology from our executive producer and her producer. They said she wouldn’t do it. I don’t know if they asked her. She could have hated me. “
Apparently, the women haven’t been in the best of conditions in years – and their relationship (or lack thereof) still hasn’t improved when Meghan is no longer on the table. We mean, they even argue about Twitter through the author wishes her husband, Ben Domenech, a happy Valentine’s Day! So it’s possible are not the time or distance that will end the feud between Joy and Meghan.
BTW, according to eyewitness accounts, the crowd sided with Joy – they cheered and clapped at the shady response. Considering Meghan is often blown away by See special fan for her inability to express opinions peacefully, we can’t say we were all surprised.
