TV series, uh-huh. Marriage, uh-uh.
"I'm getting my own talk show on HLN, so I don't have to get married anymore," Joy Behar is quoted as announcing, reports New York's Daily News. "Actually, I got cold feet again, so I don't know what I'm going to do. It's off the table. What'll happen is, when I decide to do it, I'll do it, and then everybody will know I did it. I can't make up my mind."
In March, Behar, 66, quasi-announced her engagement to longtime companion Steve Janowitz.
Then again, how seriously did Behar really take her engagement? When her View colleague (and producer) Barbara Walters offered to throw the wedding and asked, "How many people do you want?," Behar replied with her usual tongue in cheek: "I don't know. How many can you afford?"

In her desire for a "lively, fun and interesting show," Joy Behar hopes her just-announced primetime HLN cable program this fall will attract the likes of "George Clooney and John McCain," the View cohost tells PEOPLE.
"George has something to say other than 'Go see my new movie,' " says Behar, 65. "That's what I'm aiming for. I'd love to have Bill Maher, Jay Leno, people who have things to say besides trying to get a laugh."
Behar knows the territory well. "I sat in for Larry King a few weeks ago and had Denis Leary and Steve Harvey on. Both of them had great things to say about politics and relationships. They had something to say and they were funny," she says.

Joy Behar will present a view all her own, a "topical and fun" show, the View cohost tells The New York Times of the HLN cable program she and the sister channel of CNN are due to launch this fall.
Tentatively titled The Joy Behar Show and expected to debut in September in the 9 p.m. timeslot currently occupied by repeats of Lou Dobbs Tonight, the new series is to serve as a platform for the outspoken Behar, 65, who also will continue her morning duties with Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd.

Joy Behar's unmarried days may soon be over.
The 66-year-old View co-host says she's considering getting married to her longtime boyfriend, Steve Janowitz.
"I have been with a guy for 26-and-a-half years," the comedian said on Barbara Walters's SIRIUS XM Radio show Tuesday. Asked if they have talked about marriage, Behar answered, "Yes."

They may duke it out over hot topics every morning, but the ladies of The View are like a family – and they're all excited for the newest member of the clan to arrive.
"We're having another baby soon!" Joy Behar, 66, told PEOPLE Wednesday at Woman's Day magazine's 6th Annual Red Dress Awards, referring to co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck expecting her third child.
"It's like a family thing," added Behar, who hosted the event, which benefits the Larry King Cardiac foundation. "I've been there for 12 years and all the kids come up to the show. I'm like a grandma."

Meet the season 12 cast of The View.
Look familiar? Well, that's because it is.
Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar will all be back to co-host the ABC daytime show when it returns Sept. 2 after a summer hiatus. But, for the first time, the five ladies have been photographed together. (Remember, Shepherd was a late addition to season 11 – and was never part of any of the show's early photos.)
The photo shoot took place in New York – and the cohosts had plenty to do in between frames. The women danced to Tina Turner's hit "Proud Mary" and Janet Jackson tunes. (Shepherd is a huge Janet fan.)
Between takes Behar also worked on solving a New York Times crossword puzzle, while Shepherd caught up on e-mail and Goldberg practiced the music and script for her role in Xanadu on Broadway.
