AFTER 16 YEARS, JOY BEHAR BIDS ADIEU TO "THE VIEW," FRIDAY AUGUST 9 ON ABC

A Can't-Miss Celebration Filled with Surprise Guests, Music and Make-Out Sessions

After 16 unforgettable years on ABC's "The View," original co-host Joy Behar bids the show and current hosts Whoopi, Sherri and Barbara farewell, but not until she takes a stroll down memory lane for "This Was Your Life on 'The View' Joy Behar," Friday, August 9 on ABC (11:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, ET).

With her friends and family seated in the audience, it's a spectacular send-off that looks back at some of her most memorable and most talked about moments, everything from walking off during Bill O'Reilly's appearance, being used as a human barbell by LL Cool J, grilling Senator John McCain, her pop culture quiz with President Obama that left him 50 shades of red, a montage of make-out sessions and trading barbs with a famous drag queen. Special pre-taped goodbye messages from Hollywood celebrities are also sprinkled throughout the celebration.

The hour is filled with a bevy of Behar's pals, including the show's master of ceremonies, Mario Cantone; best friend Susie Essman, who talks of their early years on the comedy club circuit; Regis Philbin revealing who really discovered her; former moderator of "The View" Meredith Vieira getting passionate; comedic sparring with Joan Rivers; and Alan Alda recounting how they first met. Legendary singer Tony Bennett serenades Behar with a classic song, as she's spun 'round the dance floor by Alda.

But in true "View" fashion, it's Behar who gets the final word -- and the last laugh -- as she leaves the studio audience in hysterics and show creator Barbara Walters speechless.

Scheduled guests for the week of AUGUST 5-9 are as follows (subject to change):

MONDAY, AUGUST 5 -- CNN anchor Zoraida Sambolin guest co-hosts; Day of Hot Topics.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 6 -- To be announced.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7 -- Musical guest CeeLo Green performs with Goodie Mob; Lake Bell ("In a World...").

THURSDAY, AUGUST 8 - Television journalist Marysol Castro guest co-hosts; Emmy(R) nominee Mayim Bialik ("The Big Bang Theory"); Anson Mount ("Hell on Wheels").

FRIDAY, AUGUST 9 - After 16 Years, ABC's "The View" says goodbye to original co-host Joy Behar with a can't-miss celebration hosted by Mario Cantone and featuring guests Regis Philbin, Meredith Vieira, Joan Rivers, Susie Essman, Alan Alda and a performance from Tony Bennett.
