It was ostensibly an opportunity to interview actress Annie Potts about her new ABC show, GCB, which stands for “Good Christian Bitches” because that’s the world we live in now. Joy Behar has really been firing on all cylinders with the political zingers this week, though, and wasn’t about to let Friday go by without taking a shot at one of her favorite targets. This time it was Newt Gingrich, who apparently does not like the new show very much. He took issue with the show’s depiction of Southern Christians, “good Christian husband that he is” Joy joked.
Not only did she get a round of applause from the audience, Whoopi Goldberg stood up and gave her a personal standing ovation. Once everyone calmed down they were able to return to Annie Potts’s new show, her starring role on “Designing Women,” and a movie she starred in with Whoopi called Jumpin’ Jack Flash featuring Goldberg in a truly horrifying blonde wig. I guess this is what happens on set when Barbara Walters is out! You can see the clip here via ABC:
