THE VIEW host Joy Behar has been caught asking a co-host for help during the broadcast after failing to understand a slang word.
The live TV moment occurred during the cooking segment of the show featuring celebrity chef and restauranteur Guy Fieri.

Guy, 55, joined The View co-hosts Joy Behar, 80, Sunny Hostin, 54, Sara Haines, 45, and Alyssa Farah Griffin, 33, during the extended segment to prepare a “buffet” of tasty entries for the panel to sample.
The chef answered questions about the upcoming fourth season of Food Network’s Tournament of Champions as he prepared barbeque shotgun shells and a birria quesadilla pizza.
Later during the interview, Sunny asked Guy about the new car he purchased for his son Ryder for his 17th birthday.
The morning show moderator revealed that she recently bought her daughter Paloma a new car as well.
She then confessed: “I do believe that they should drive a hooptie first because they’re going to bang into things and mess it up.”
Guy agreed, stating: “I concur” while off to the side, Joy asked Sara, “What’s a hooptie?”
The Chase host whispered back: “It’s a junker,” so as to not embarrass the comedian.
Oxford Languages defines the “informal” American term as “a car, especially an old or dilapidated one.”
FREUDIAN FAUX PAS
Earlier in the show, Joy was been left red-faced after making a major NSFW slip-up during a serious news segment.
She accidentally said “erection” instead of “insurrection” during a politics recap on Wednesday’s show.
Joy was discussing the controversial news that Fox News host Tucker Carlson was given footage from the Capitol riot.
She said: “Less than a week after Tucker Carlson is caught fully admitting that he doesn’t believe the election fraud lies he’s putting on the air, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy hands him capital security footage from the January 6 erection-“
Joy broke off in shock and tried to hastily correct herself by saying, “election,” before finally settling on the correct “insurrection.”
The comedian covered her mouth with her hand in embarrassment and hung her head as her co-hosts burst out laughing.
Alyssa jokingly stated: “Well done!”
Sara and Sunny, meanwhile, tried to hide their faces and pursed their lips with barely suppressed laughter.
Fans of The View went wild over Joy’s gaffe – especially as she was acting as show moderator during Whoopi Goldberg‘s absence.
One fan tweeted, “Erection, Joy?” and added a meme with the text, “Something on your mind?”
Another posted: “Joy Behar with the best Freudian slip ever!”
A third commented, “Erection, election, insurrection,” with a string of laughing face emojis.
Elsewhere in the episode, Joy was called out for “unnecessarily shading” the Kardashians.
The panel was discussing how former President Donald Trump was still looking for the votes he lost in the 2020 election and the indictment against him.
Joy then explained that a Georgia Special Grand Jury Forewoman spoke to a reporter about his indictment.
The woman, Emily, seemed to be giving too much away from the court documents, which left the audience and the hosts chuckling.
When the clip ended, Joy said: “Shouldn’t she be keeping her big bazoo shut? This girl?”
Joy delivered her insult as she said: “You know everybody is a Kardashian now, everybody wants attention, and that’s what this is about, I think.”
The rest of the panel seemed to stay quiet, with a low “yeah” coming from one of them.
