JOY.JPGJoy Behar, the last original panelist on "The View" who isn't Barbara Walters, plans to leave the ABC talk show after 16 years.

"You reach a point when you say to yourself, 'Do I want to keep doing this? ' " the comedian tells deadline.com. "There are other things on my plate I want to do -- I've been writing a play, I've been neglecting my standup."

Behar, whose contract runs out in August, plans to spend several more months on "The View" and hopes to launch a talk show of her own. "I'm interested in talking to people," she said. "I want to do an intelligent talk show where you have room to breathe."

I am looking forward to see Joy Behar hosting her own talk show. I missed her in her show "Say Anything". Time Warner no longer has the net work she was on. I enjoy watching her, and I hope you let everyone know as soon as she is given her talk show.
This is great news.

I wish you the best,

Doris Mason
