While discussing the nude photos, Sunny couldn’t help but gush over the Grey’s Anatomy actor’s body, but Whoopi thought she needed to calm down a bit.
The moderator, 66, walked over to her co-host and sprayed Sunny with water and demanded she “cool off.”
Whoopi insisted everyone would be “pulling [their] hair out” if it were an actress and not an actor who had a nude video of themselves leaked.
The other hosts, though, took a bit of comfort in the fact that Jesse said himself that he wasn’t overwhelmingly bothered by the incident.

Sunny continued to thirst over Jesse’s body as she discussed the unauthorized photos, which she said she had many friends in her circle send to her.
The 53-year-old said: “He doesn’t seem to feel like he has been harassed, he doesn’t seem to feel like he has been shamed.
“And that makes me feel a little better about the fact that I did stare at the pictures for a ridiculously long amount of time.”
Viewers took to Twitter to share their shock over seeing Whoopi get up to jokingly spray Sunny with water to get her to end her rant over Jesse’s naked form.
