Highlights of Joy Behar's last show on 'The View' -- VIDEO

After 16 seasons, Joy Behar bid farewell to The View today. The hour-long goodbye episode, taped Thursday, was billed as “This Was Your Life on The View” and was hosted by comic Mario Cantone (Sex and the City). In addition to showing taped messages from stars and choice clips — including Behar buckling Tom Cruise onto the couch, her declining fashion advice from RuPaul, her walking away from Bill O’Reilly, and her getting a foot massage from Matthew McConaughey – producers lined up a slew of surprise in-studio guests.

First up was Regis Philbin, who told the story of how Behar really got on Barbara Walters’ radar. As Behar killed at Milton Berle’s 89th birthday party in 1997, Walters leaned over to Philbin and asked who she was. Former View cohost Meredith Vieira was next, and she described the “faint smell of peppermint and gin” on Behar’s breath when they kissed on the show. Cue the montage of Behar kissing female guests. Then Vieira kissing Behar. Behar kissing Walters. Walters kissing Vieira. Philbin kissing Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd. And Goldberg and Shepherd kissing Behar.

ESPN's 'Nine for IX' starts with Whoopi Goldberg-produced doc -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Basketball coach Vivian Stringer is maybe most famous outside the sports world for her role as a spokeswoman during the Don Imus scandal, when the former radio host made racist and sexist remarks about Stringer’s players. But there’s much more to Stringer’s career and life — maybe too much even for Coach, the new ESPN documentary about her.

The film kicks off a new series called Nine for IX: Nine documentaries airing over nine weeks for the 40th anniversary of Title IX. We spoke with the doc’s director, Bess Kargman, about working with Stringer — and Coach‘s producer, Whoopi Goldberg.

Barbara Walters addresses 'View' rumors: 'The truth is we love Elisabeth'

Whoopi Goldberg began this morning’s The View with the obvious: “It’s been kind of a crazy weekend.”

“People say the times are a-changin’,” she said at the top of the hour, referring to the “story after story” about who would and would not be leaving The View in the wake of Joy Behar’s announcement that she would be exiting the popular panel show.

(Behar, for her part, debuted a list of “Top 10 Reasons for Leaving The View” that Sherri Shepherd and Elisabeth Hasselbeck thought were hi-larious. A sample: “No. 10: ABC won’t let me drink on the air like Hoda and Kathy Lee.”)

Before the gang could get to the day’s “hot topics,” Barbara Walters leaned forward to explain what was really up with the 17-year-old talk show, and to address rumors that Hasselbeck would be following Behar out the door. “There is a particularly false story that keeps getting picked up about Elisabeth’s departure,” she said, referring to rumors that Hasselbeck was being pushed out due to her conservative views.

“The truth is we love Elisabeth,” Walters continued. “I like her personally and she’s just a wonderful person — but beyond that, we value and appreciate her point-of-view … We have no plans for Elisabeth to leave the show.”
