Andy Cohen desires Pleasure Behar to spill the tea on her time on The View — particularly the Rosie O’Donnell years.
“Andy Cohen is on his knees begging me to do a e-book,” Behar, 81, informed The View govt producer Brian Teta on the Wednesday, October 25, episode of the “Behind the Desk” podcast whereas discussing celeb memoirs.
When Teta, 47, requested Behar if she ever journals in regards to the speak present, Behar confessed she solely “saved a diary” the primary yr that O’Donnel, 61, was on the present.
Like Cohen, 55, Teta agreed that “folks would go loopy” if she revealed a e-book. Whereas Behar is conscious that the recount of O’Donnell’s rocky stint would do properly, she made it clear writing a tell-all wasn’t one thing she wished to do.
“Keep in mind that e-book You’ll By no means Eat Lunch In This City Once more?” Behar requested. “The lady writes a e-book and talks about issues like … one film star has B.O., one other one has unhealthy breath. After which she will be able to’t … You’ll By no means Eat Lunch In This City Once more is an effective title for the e-book.”
After giving it some thought, Teta agreed that writing a e-book wasn’t the perfect concept however he was stunned Behar was so towards it since she’s candid together with her ideas.
“For somebody who’s identified for saying no matter’s on her thoughts always, you do maintain so much again, as a result of the conversations in your dressing room are a complete different stage,” Teta shared to which Behar replied, “Do you assume I’d be on the present for 27 years if I didn’t maintain one thing again?”
Whereas Behar didn’t dive into Cohen’s request, he’s a identified fan of The View — and launched a nonfiction imprint with Henry Holt in 2020.
