The View fans concerned as Sunny Hostin is MISSING from show & host Sara Haines forced to fill in as ‘knock-off lawyer’ | The Sun

THE View fans have become concerned about Sunny Hostin after the host was missing from the talk show on Monday.

Sara Haines has been forced to fill in as a “knock-off lawyer” for the program after legal notes needed to be shared on-air, despite Sunny’s absence.

After a couple weeks of hosts taking turns being absent, Whoopi Goldberg quickly worked to get ahead of any fan concerns about Sunny being out.

Once the day’s panel of hosts – Whoopi, Sara Haines, Joy Behar, and Ana Navarro – were seated, the moderator told viewers at the start of the show:  “Welcome to The View, Sunny has the day off.”

Without any other information about why she's out or when she'd return to The View, fans still shared their concerns online.

One worried viewer tweeted: “Where is sunny?!?!?”

Another upset fans said upon seeing the day’s panel line-up: “Wait, no Sunny?”

“No Sunny,” a third social media user simply wrote, adding a gif of a boy crying along with it.

A fourth insisted: “Sunny should not be allowed any days off. The show is never the same without her!”

With Sunny not there, Sara was forced to fill in for the former when it came time to share some legal notes with viewers.

"Oh, I've got a legal note," Sara said, before Joy jumped in: "Oh, Sunny normally does this."

The Chase host told her: "I know, I know. [I'm] the knock-off lawyer."

She later had to fill in for Sunny with a second legal note on the show.

Fans have become increasingly worried about the changes to the hosting panel, as quite a few cast members have been absent in recent weeks.

On Friday, Whoopi was out, which led to Joy having to fill in as the show’s moderator.

Viewers gushed over Joy’s demeanor as moderator as compared to Whoopi’s.

They noted how much more calm and easy-going the whole program seemed to be.

One viewer praised the 79-year-old: “Yes Joy is the moderator! Job done correctly.”

Another happy fan wrote: “YAAAY!! Joy’s the moderator!!”

A third tweeted: “Somehow when #GrandmaJoy moderates #TheView time be flying,” and they added a gif of someone happily, calmly sipping some tea.

The entire week before, both Joy and Sara were out from the talk show.

Whoopi told viewers on the first day that the two hosts were absent, Monday, July 11: "Welcome to The View. We are back here at home because we was gone for a little while. We was in The Bahamas."

She added: "We have to tell you, Sara is out with Covid.

"Joy does not have Covid, but she’s not in today. She’s taking the day off.

The 79-year-old ended up taking the entire week off, with fans not getting an update on why she was missing until Thursday, July 14.

Whoopi comically quipped: "Joy is not out with Covid.

"She’s getting over something else, the flu…or maybe she’s pregnant, I don’t know."

Upon returning to the show on Monday, July 18, Joy shared with fans: "I had a virus. That's it! A really strong virus. I tested negative in five PCR tests I did not have it."
