Joy Behar’s Body Language During Her Apology For“ Rachel U Ka Tell She’s A Hooker” Comment Shows Anger at Being Forced to Apologize for Her Joke

NO JOY IN JOY’S FORCED APOLOGY TO AVOID LEGAL CONSEQUENCES

Comedian and talk show host Joy Behar was forced to apologize for her sense of humor which, she used on the he View, while making a play on words and using Rachel Uchitels’ name by saying “You ka tell she’s a hooker. The next day, Joy received word from Uchitel’s pit bull attorney , Gloria Allred that Joy, the View, and ABC would be sued for calling Rachel Uchitel a ” hooker” if Joy did not issue a public apology on the View for referring to Uchitel as a “hooker.”

So to avoid any legal consequences to herself and to the network, Joy Behar went on the View, looked directly into the camera and apologized to Uchitel stating that she meant no harm in what she said about Rachel Uchitel and merely meant it as a joke. But what Joy Behar said via her vocal “tells” body language, spoke volumes.

TALKING AT A FASTER RATE THAN USUSAL TO HURRY UP AND GET IT OVER WITH

Joy’s normal rate of speech is average- not too fast or too slow. As a host and co-host she is polished and knows that she needs to articulate at a steady pace , so that viewers can clearly understand what she has to say.

But while making her apology, Joy was clearly out of character. Her rapid rate of speech when obviously reading the apology into the teleprompter, belied the fact that she was a seasoned television professional. It was said at an unusually fast rate, unlike her usual speaking pattern. This meant, she couldn’t wait to get this odious task over with.

MONTONE TO CONTAIN HER ANGER

Her monotone voice as she read the scripted apology, showed that she wasn’t sincere in her apology, but did it because she had to or else. Normally, Joy is the most animated of all the co-hosts.

Never shy to passionately express how she really feels about any topic, she uses the entire tonal gamut to openly express her wide range of emotions. But this time, Joy was completely out of character. Her one note spoke volumes. It showed that she was trying to contain herself and not reveal the main emotion she was feeling—anger! She was definitely angry!

REVEALING BODY LANGUAGE AND JARRING EYE CONTACT

The shoulder shrugs and head cocked to the side indicated that she really didn’t mean what she was saying. But what was most telling was Joy’s mask= like facial expression and angry eyes as she spoke.

The flash of anger reflected through her eyes was jarring. Normally ,we see this happy facially animated woman who is able to add lightness towards any heavy or negative discussion. While she can be serious about any topic, she never fails to see the humor in anything.

Having been interviewed by Joy Behar years ago when I appeared on the View, I was most impressed with how clever she was. To this day, whenever I watched her while substitute hosting Larry King and even on her own HLN show, I look forward to her plays on words and her adding something to interviews that most hosts cannot do.

This definitely reflects her level of intelligence and her uniqueness as a host . It is not easy to come up with such quips so fast and I really admire that. The clever play on words she used regarding Levi Johnston. showing his “Johnson” for Playgirl was absolutely hilarious.

WHAT JOY WAS PROBABLLY THINKING WHILE MAKING HER APOLOGY

In keeping with Joy’s play on words “ There was no JOY in JOY’S apology to Uchictel. If looks could kill. Rachel Uchitel would be dead.

What Joy was most likely thinking during her forced apology was “ I am sooo angry that I have to apologize for my humor. It was a joke for goodness sake! That is what humor is based on – plays on words with a little truth mixed in. Who doesn’t think Uchitel is a hooker? Who doesn’t think she is prostituting herself asking for millions of dollars in hush money to keep quiet about her affair with Toger Woods m even though her emails reflecting their alleged romance were suspiciously “leaked” to the press?” Who doesn’t think that suing me, the View. or ABC is yet another “whorey” act to suck out some more money out of her now 30 minutes of fame?
Does this set a precedence for all comedians to now stifle their humor and their jokes for fear of reprisal against those whom they joke about? Does that mean Leno and Letterman and Jon Stewart others will also be targeted by Rachel Uchitel and sued for defamation? ISs this the start of something that can now involve our First Amendment Rights? “

YOU CAN’T DEFAME A CHARACTER WHEN SOMEONE DOESN’T HAVE “CHARACTER”

While there is no doubt in my mind that the “defamation of character suit” against Joy Behar and the View and ABC would be initially thrown out as a frivolous claim, considering the circumstances in which it was said and who it was said about. Joy, being the ultimate professional and team player that she is, wanted to avoid any additional problems and embarrassment. So, she conceded and did what was required of her.

It would be interesting to prove to a jury that a woman who got millions of dollars in hush money from Tiger, who herself said in an interview in Blackbook Magazine that she offered” special customer service” to her VIP customers and catered to their “wants and needs,” who openly dated married men with families , who traveled around the world like the 4 Seasons in Thailand with VIP guests, and who flew free airfare to Australia courtesy of Tiger Woods, was not a “hooker” or who had impeccable values and was of high moral character.

It would also be excruciatingly embarrassing for those who’s names have been linked with hers -from Derek Jeter to Ryan Seacrest to actor David Bonearaz and to others she mentions in her Blackbook Magazine interview -“ a musician, a baseball player, a Broadway actor, etc. to be subpoenaed and have to disclose all the “whoreiffic” ( in keeping with Joy’s play on words) details of their liaisons.

STIFLING THE TRUTH ABOUT RACHEL UCHITEL UNDER THREAT OF A LAWSUIT

Rachel hired one of the best attorneys in the world to defend her– Gloria Allred. As long as Gloria is in Rachel’s life, she will always to watch her back. What makes Gloria so amazing for her clients is that she goes the extra mile for them. She defends them passionately- heart and soul. This makes her the best attorney for her clients. I know this up close and personal as we have shared many mutual clients in common. I have helped prepare many of her clients for trial throughout the years. Gloria’s undying devotion to these clients are the envy of anyone who has an attorney with attitude or who never returns your telephone calls. Gloria is not like that at all.

But having sung Gloria’s praises not only for being a great attorney but a great person as I also know her personally for many years, I can also say that in the scheme of things, in relation to this particular situation with Rachel Uchitel. I am angry that people are being threatened with lawsuits for saying anything derogatory about Rachel Uchitel.

RACHEL UCHITEL AND “THE EMPEROR HAS NEW CLOTHES” SYNDOME WHEN HE IS INFACT NAKED

This whole situation with Rachel Uchitel reminds me of the children’s fable “ The Emperor Has New Clothes.” In reality the emperor was walking around naked. But because he was powerful (an emperor) all his subjects agreed with him that was wearing beautiful clothes because they didn’t want to get punished for telling him the truth that he was naked.

The same is true with Rachel. The reality is that she too, was walking around naked (with married man- Tiger Woods and to who knows whom else she gave her special band of “customer care”). But because she is now powerful (thanks to the strong arm of legal empress Gloria Allred, everyone is afraid they will get punished for telling the truth and saying it like it is, So they couch who and what Rachel is by not actually saying who and what she really is.”

Like the story analogy of the naked emperor, it is all fear based- fear you will get beheaded if you tell the truth about the emperor and fear you will get sued if you tell the truth about Rachel Uchitel.

HOMEWRECKING, COLLECTING MILLIONS TO HUSH, AND ALLEGEDLY LEAKING HUSHED EMAILS ANYWAY, INFURIATES AND CREATES DEATH THREATS
How can you respect anyone who has been involved in destroying another person’s life? She contributed to destroying Tiger Woods marriage by homewrecking and turning his wife and kid’s lives upside down. That is unforgiveable!

Taking the millions of dollars in hush money while conveniently leaking the “un hushed” emails to the press via a third party infuriates people. It is not fair. People feel that was ripping Tiger off. People are not dumb. They know exactly what is going on and what Rachel Uchitel is all about. It infuriates so many people that she has allegedly, according to TMZ, received numerous death threats from people who feel angry enough to kill her. http://www.drlillianglass.com

  1. Dr. Glass, I have become a daily reader of your blog. I have come to have a great respect for your insight. Reading about Joy and her apology just made me so angry.
    She is one of the most talented women on TV and the fact that she was made to make a public apology just breaks my heart for her. You are spot on with all of your observations. I have not watched the View since they had Kate Gosselin as a guest host and will never watch the View again. I have lost all respect for Barbara Walters and the show, but I will never stop loving Joy and her quick wit. She is so talented. I will read here every day for updates on the lastest happenings. YOU ROCK.

    Cheers from Susan
