Barbara Walters Shocks Elisabeth Hasselbeck with Hilariously Kinky Question

by | April 17, 2012 at 10:49 AM | The View

Barbara Walters is a consummate professional when interviewing newsmakers, but when she’s on her home turf at “The View,” she has no problem getting a little frisky.

While discussing E.L. James‘ erotic novel, 50 Shades of Grey, the veteran journalist was confronted with a particularly newsworthy comment from her co-host, Joy Behar.

“You look very S+M today,” Behar told the host.

“I left my whip at home,” joked Walters.

Not one to let a fun topic of conversation get away from her, Walters continued in the same vein when discussing HBO’s new show, “Girls.” “Women, especially women like us… When you go home, you want the guy to be in charge. More than be in charge, do very kinky things.”

Clearly on a roll, Walters continued the sex chat, asking a blushing Elisabeth Hasselbeck, “Do you like it when [husband Tim] is rough?”
