Avocados are supposed to be good for your health -- but for Joy Behar the fruit landed her in the hospital.

On Tuesday’s episode of The View, the co-host said she missed work Monday because she’d cut open her hand slicing up an avocado. She explained, “Saturday night, on my way to the event at the retreat, I stabbed myself in the hand with a knife. I was trying to desperately eat something, so I was trying to open an avocado. So I stuck the knife into the pit to get it out … and I stabbed myself!”

The 75-year-old stayed overnight at the hospital, where she was put on an antibacterial drip to fight an infection. She said, “Apparently there is a syndrome called avocado hand. It’s real! The doctor said, ‘We get this all the time.’ And bagels also. Any time you’re holding the item, and you cut it, you can get this.”

She joked, “I’ll leave the dicing to Rachael Ray and only buy ready-made guacamole
