Joy Behar has married longtime boyfriend Steve Janowitz, Access Hollywood has confirmed.
The redheaded comedian and Janowitz married on Thursday in New York City.
"She was married Thursday night and will talk about it on 'The View' and her HLN show, 'The Joy Behar Show,' on September 6," Behar's rep at HLN confirmed to Access.
Behar and Janowitz have been a couple since the early 1980s, and she regularly referred to him as her "spousal equivalent."
Behar actually broke off an engagement to Janowitz in 2009, back when she was about to start her HLN show.
"I'm getting my own talk show on HLN, so I don't have to get married anymore," she joked at the Friars Club back in June 2009, according to the New York Daily News.
"Actually, I got cold feet again, so I don't know what I'm going to do," she added, at the time. "It's off the table. What'll happen is, when I decide to do it, I'll do it, and then everybody will know I did it. I can't make up my mind."
When Behar does discuss her decision to finally walk down the aisle, she'll do so on what will be the fifteenth season premiere of "The View."
