Did you see Thursday's final episode of The Joy Behar Show on Current TV? (Neither did ANYONE that I respect, but it happened - we have video proof.)
Over the next three weeks Current TV morphs into Al Jazeera America. And like any new owner, the Qatar-based bosses apparently want to clear out the place, redecorate and launch with an all new look. Before Behar could wrap up her last break with her "Famestream" panel (we don't know what that means either -- but we're sure that she thinks it was clever), the crew started the process of tearing the place down. Set pieces, props, Joy's jewelry...everything.
Behar's last words on Current?
“This may not be goodbye. Who knows? We might just come back somewhere else — like Univision, Telemundo or TVMONDE. To everyone, I say shalom, adios, ciao, au revoir, al vida zein, khoda hafez.”
We're also well aware that the German phrase for "Good Bye" is "auf wiedersehen." The above is an exact quote from the Current TV post.

P.S.: In reviewing this clip, I noted that Behar's staff included a writer named Larry Amoros. If that name sounds familiar, Amoros was the writer fired from the Arsenio Hall Show after sexual harassment suits were filed when more than a dozen actors claimed they were sexually battered during fake auditions for a phoney sketch called "The Buttmaster."
