08/12/2011 by Olivia Allin

Joy Behar, a co-host on ABC's daytime talk show "The View," has married her boyfriend of 29 years, Steve Janowitz.

"She and Steve Janowitz, her 'spousal equivalent' of 29 years were married in a private ceremony last night in NYC," an ABC representative told to OnTheRedCarpet.com in a statement. "She will discuss it all on Sept. 6 when 'The View' kicks off Season 15 live."

Behar's wedding on August 11 also marks the 14th anniversary of "The View," which debuted on August 11, 1997.

In 2009, the talk show host announced that she planned to marry Janowitz, who she often referred to as her "spousal equivalent," but she said she had called off the engagement later that year due to "cold feet."

Behar and Janowitz are reportedly on their honeymoon. Behar cheekily wrote on Twitter, "Gone Fishing," on Friday evening.

Behar has appeared in several movies including "Hall Pass," "Cookie" and "Manhattan Murder Mystery." She also hosts "The Joy Behar Show" on CNN's sister network, HLN.

Behar, who was born Josephina Victoria Occhiuto, was previously married to Joe Behar. The couple married in January 1965 and divorced in 1981. They have one daughter, Eve, who was born in 1970.
