Speaking on the 'Behind the Table' podcast, she said: "Andy Cohen is on his knees begging me to do a book. Remember that book 'You’ll Never Eat Lunch In This Town Again'? The girl writes a book and talks about things like … one movie star has B.O., another one has bad breath. And then she can’t…'You’ll Never Eat Lunch In This Town Again' is a good title for the book. Do you think I’d be on the show for 27 years if I did not hold something back?"
Joy was an original panellist on 'The View' when it launched in 1997 but was let go from the show in 2013 and returned a year later.
At the time, she alleged that "someone" on the production wanted her gone because of her political views as she claimed that that the decision to leave was not entirely her choice.
She said: "Somebody wanted me gone. was not 100 percent my choice. When they told me they weren’t renewing, I said, ‘Good, I’m out of here.’
