Joy Behar: I Wouldn't Wed Until the In-Laws Were Dead
"Marriage is mostly about in-laws ... [who] want you to come [over] for lasagna," the View co-host says
But now The View co-host admits there was an additional factor involved.
“I waited until all the parents were dead,” Behar, 69, said on Monday’s Rachael Ray. “So I have no in-laws at all. He has none and I have none. ‘Cause marriage is mostly about in-laws, I find. They always want you to visit them and come for lasagna.”
In-laws aren’t the only thing about marriage Behar hoped to avoid.
“[My husband] snores sometimes if he drinks too much wine,” the TV personality said. “And he tends to telegraph what he’s going to do. We’re driving, [and he’ll say], ‘All right, I’m going to find a spot over here.’ ”
“Okay, good. I’m doing my puzzle! I don’t need to hear every little move you’re going to make,” she said. ” ‘I think I’m going to put that suit on later.’ … It’s like he’s talking out loud to himself!”
Behar, however, believes she can do no wrong.
“I’m perfect,” she said. “All of my husbands had the same problem with me. I lose things. But I have trained them all to locate where I left my brassieres, for example. I’ll say ‘Where is that brassiere?’ and they’ll say ‘It’s hanging on the bathroom door.’ Stuff like that. I lose things and I fall. These are my two things.”
