Joy Behar, the former co-host of ABC’s “The View,” isn’t sure Caitlyn Jenner would make a good co-host of the show, saying, “If you’re boring as a man, you’re going to be boring as a woman, right?”
“She has a new persona and a new way to speak about things, I suppose. But another woman could say the same thing,” Behar told TMZ.
Behar’s comments come on the heels of the announcement that Raven-Symoné has been named as the new co-host of the long-running ABC daytime talk show.
“Being a part of ‘The View’ family will be a wonderful growing experience for me,” Symoné said. “The cast and crew are warm and welcoming and has made the transition into daytime talk easier.”
And even without “The View” hosting gig, Jenner’s dance card is already full. She is now a client in CAA’s speakers department, which will identify opportunities for her to share her transgender experience and channel the attention from her transition into opportunities to address LGBT issues.
In addition, Jenner’s E! reality docuseries “I Am Cait,” which was recently previewed in a teaser trailer, will premiere July 26.
Jenner’s new Twitter handle also set the internet ablaze, reaching over 1 million followers in just over four hours. The record for the fastest accumulation of followers was previously held by President Obama, who reached that number in five hours.
