Joy Behar Explains 'The View' Absence - Why She Was Hospitalized

Joy Behar Explains 'The View' Absence - Why She Was Hospitalized

It's often an unfair fight - knife-wielding celebrities vs. the unarmed avocado.

"Saturday night, on my way to the event at the retreat, I stabbed myself in the hand with a knife", she explained to her co-hosts.

Joy Behar appears on "The View", March 20, 2018. I was trying to desperately eat something, so I was trying to open up an avocado.

At the hospital, where the 75-year-old stayed overnight and was administered an antibacterial drip to ward off infection, Behar was told that this sort of accident happens all the time.

But at least she got some reassurance that she's not the only one who's been bested by a pesky pit. She found out avocado casualties are fairly common.

Believe it or not, Behar is hardly the only star to fall victim to what has now become known as "avocado hand". "The doctor said, 'Oh, we get this all the time.' Bagels also".

"View" co-host Sara Haines actually got Behar a safety glove as a gift.

"That's very nice of you", Behar said.

"I'm only gonna buy ready-made guacamole", Behar joked. "And Meryl Streep apparently had this too". According Us Weekly, the three-time Oscar victor attended a 2012 NY event to promote "Hope Springs" with a bandage covering her hand.

Now home from the hospital, Dorfman has been accessorizing her bandage by matching it to her colorful outfits. Tendons and nerves have been reunited. "If only the avocado had been so kind".
