At least the current offer on the table.
The former co-host, who served up morning verbal slaps on the talkfest for sixteen seasons, is being courted by ABC to return to the show in lieu of falling ratings, but the comedienne, who has had her own talk shows since leaving in 2013, had this to say about what ABC offered her this time around….
“They’ve come to me, and we couldn’t make a deal.We’ll see how it goes. Don’t believe everything you read.”
As for the reasons why Behar said “Bye, Felicia” to the first offer?
“They wouldn’t really negotiate well enough for me, and so I said, ‘No, I’m not coming to you.’ If they would give me a bigger role on the show and give me some power to…make some changes and let them benefit from my expertise after being there for 16 years…But they’re not going to do that. So why would I want to bang my head against the wall?”
In other words, ABC: show Behar the moolah and give her the power!!
