The View’s Sunny Hostin admits ‘I’d let you slap me’ as co-host warns they’ll ‘do it’ in wild moment on live show

THE VIEW host Sunny Hostin has claimed she’s let her co-host Joy Behar slap her for $40M dollars as the panel discussed last year’s wild Oscars slap.

Joy, 80, discussed how much this year’s producers should lean into the tense moment, when Sunny, 54, made her bold claim on Friday’s episode.

Joy kicked off the topic by sharing this year’s Oscar producers had claimed they plan to lean into Will Smith slapping Chris Rock last year in a humorous way.

She then asked the panel how much they think producers should lean into it.

Sunny retaliated by stating: “I don’t think they should lean into it – I think they should mention it.”

After sharing her opinions, she continued: “I mean, Chris Rock made $40M. I don’t like violence, but I think you could slap me for $40M.”

Joy exclaimed: “I could do it right now!”

Sunny shrugged and raised her arms.

Sara Haines, 45, then joked: “I would do it for much less.”


Also on Friday’s episode of The View, a discussion about horoscope signs turned into a deep dive into the supernatural.

As co-hosts Sara, Sunny, and Alyssa Farah Griffin all revealed their astrological auras, Joy was having none of it.

“I think it’s a bunch of BS,” Joy said under her breath.

“No, no, Joy!” Sarah immediately screamed back, before confessing: “My whole marriage is based on an astrological sign.”

A baffled Joy reached back to her Yiddish roots and declared: “I can’t stand all that bubbe meise,” which translates to old wives’ tales.


Sunny joined in: “You don’t believe in ghosts either. You don’t let us have any fun.”

Joy followed up: “I don’t believe in ghosts, they believe in ghosts; they think you can talk to the dead; they believe in horoscopes.”

This brought back Sara’s wrath, who argued that she didn’t say anything about talking to the ghosts, just that they are always around.

“I didn’t say we could talk to them, I’m not Oda Mae Brown,” she said, referencing absent co-host Whoopi Goldberg‘s character in the movie Ghost. “I don’t talk to ghosts, I just know they are there.”

Bewildered, Joy challenged: “Where?”

And in unison, Sara and Sunny both said: “They’re everywhere!”

Sara asked Joy: “You don’t feel it?”

“No, I don’t. I don’t feel it,” she replied flatly, before segueing into another topic.


The heated argument stemmed from an earlier topic concerning Ryan Murphy lying about his Zodiac sign to Madonna to land a job.

This prompted the women to talk about their own signs.

Sunny said: “Joy and I are both Libras. We kind of try to scale things out. Sara’s a Virgo, like my husband: water-bearer, definitely very critical, careful, and planned.”

Sunny then turned to Alyssa Farah Griffin.

“I’m a Gemini,” Alyssa said before Sunny could get a word in.

Sunny turned to the camera and put on a silly face, saying “We don’t really know who she is.”

Alyssa laughed along as Sunny made her face.

“Okay? We really don’t know who she is,” referencing the common label of the sign being “two-faced” given that the symbol is twins.

“Oh, shade!” Alyssa hissed as she covered her face with some of her note cards.
