‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar in the hospital after cutting hand in avocado accident

“The View” co-host Joy Behar was admitted to the hospital after she cut her hand at the opening of an avocado.


Who knew avocados were so dangerous?

On Tuesday’s episode of “,” co-host Joy Behar revealed she had to miss work Monday because she had sliced open her hand cutting an avocado.

“Saturday night, on the way to the event in the retreat, I put myself in the hand with a knife,” she explained. “I tried desperately to eat something, so I was trying to open an avocado. So I stuck the knife into the pit like … and I stabbed myself!”

In the hospital, where the 75-year-old overnight and was administered an anti-drip to ward off infections, Behar was told that this is a kind of accident happens all the time.

“Apparently there is a syndrome called avocado hand,” she said. “It really is! The doctor said: ‘We get all the time.’ And bagels. Every time that you are holding on to the item, and you cut it, you can get this.”

Despite the pain she was in, Behar still had a sense of humor about the ordeal, even after her fellow panelists gave her a safety-gloves and an avocado slicer.

“I let the blocks to Rachael Ray and only buy ready-made guacamole. That’s it!”, she joked.

Sounds like a solid plan.
