Steve Janowitz was born in the United States of America, and is a retired school teacher, but better known for being the husband of comedienne and actress Joy Behar, who is noted especially for her work with the talk show “The View”.

The Net Worth of Steve Janowitz

How rich is Steve Janowitz? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is at $800,000, mostly earned through his many years working as a teacher. His net worth has also been elevated by the success of his wife who has a net worth that is estimated authoritatively at over $12 million, with an annual salary of $500,000 largely from her work with “The View”. As Steve is officially retired, it’s problematic as to whether his modest fortune will increase.

Early Life and Career

Not many details are known about the early life of Steve Janowitz including his hometown, family, and his childhood. Even his age is officially unknown, but those ‘in the know’ suggest that he is the same age as his wife – 75 as of mid-2018. Throughout his life he has stayed away from the media spotlight, and wasn’t someone worth catching attention to until he met his future wife Joy Behar. From what is known from various sources, he worked as a school teacher for most of his life until his retirement.

Relationship with Joy Behar and Marriage

Steve began his relationship with Joy Behar in 1982, at around he time that Joy was just getting her start in show business. The two would stay together and develop their relationship throughout the years, with both of their careers flourishing along with their relationship. Joy would go on to become a part of the talk show “The View”. Prior to that, she hosted shows such as “The Joy Behar Show” and “Joy Behar: Say Anything”. She also has a weekly late-night talk show “Late Night Joy”.

Steve on the other hand continued on with his work as a school teacher until his retirement. They stayed in a relationship for 29 years and held off on getting married due to a number of reasons. According to reports, Joy wanted to wait until same-sex marriage was legal in New York, and until both sets of parents had passed-on – apparently in-laws negatively affect many marriages! She also became decided on getting married after it was getting tiring to ask senior discounts for her boyfriend and it was also tiring to hear her relatives calling Steve “that old guy”.

Other Marriage Facts

Prior to their marriage in 2011, they almost married two years earlier after Joy mentioned on Sirius XM that she was seriously considering marriage. They became engaged in 2009, but then called it off as she wanted to stop talking about marriage. She didn’t like all the attention getting engaged brought her, and decided in the future that they would just marry before telling everyone, so did just that in a private ceremony two years later.

The two also decided they were good for each other, as after almost 30 years they still enjoyed each other’s company, and helped each other for the many years they were together. This is Joy’s second marriage, and she has a daughter from that previous one. Of course by the time Steve and Joy tied the knot, her daughter was already a mother herself. So, the two then bought a three-bedroom apartment located in New York City, where they can host guests. Behar also mentioned in an interview that Steve was tired of holding-in his belly in photos, and the two wanted to be married when Behar’s granddaughter grew up.

After the Marriage

The couple reside in a 1,400 square foot apartment located on the sixth floor of their building. They love to do events and wanted to have a space they could utilize for various things. The neighborhood was also a good choice according to the couple, as there were a lot of good locations nearby, such as a nail salon, and an Italian restaurant, meaning easy access even with bad weather.

Is Steve Janowitz on Social Media?

One of the reasons there is very little media coverage and information available about Janowitz is due to his lack of online presence on any of the major social media websites. These includes Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. There are other profiles named Steve Janowitz but they have different profile pictures, and don’t post content at all that would be connected to Steve or Joy. His wife on the other hand is very active on social media as is common with numerous entertainment and television personalities. She has both Twitter and Facebook accounts.
