"There’s something about her. I’ve been on this show for 26 years, right, with a small hiatus as we all know — forced," the TV personality said. "For some reason, this death has gotten me in my kishkas."

"I don’t know what it is, something about her that she just got to me, I could start crying right now," Behar claimed about the iconic singer.

Prior to her comment on yesterday’s broadcast, the red-haired host has previously addressed her time off the chat fest with a different sentiment.
