Sunny Hostin's husband got angry at Doug E. Fresh dancing 'too close' to her on “The View”

Sunny Hostin's husband got angry at Doug E. Fresh dancing 'too close' to her on “The View”

"We got into the car and he said, 'What the bleep was that?'" Hostin revealed of her husband Manny's reaction to a hip-hop performance on her birthday episode.

Sunny Hostin's husband seemingly took a little time to, uh, not enjoy The View of hip-hop icon Doug E. Fresh dancing with his wife during a live episode of the show.

The legal expert and longtime View panelist revealed on Tuesday's episode of the Behind the Table podcast that her spouse, Emmanuel "Manny" Hostin, was a little angry as he watched the recording artist approach Hostin on stage amid a special performance on her Oct. 20 birthday episode.

"I don't know if you remember, during my birthday show when we had the 50 years of hip-hop, Doug E. Fresh came up to me and, in my husband's view, danced a little too close to me," Sunny told View producer Brian Teta on the podcast, in response to a playful fan question inquiring about how Sunny's husband felt about her affinity for actor Idris Elba. "I only looked into the audience and took one look at his face ... and scooted over so quickly. I didn't even think I had it in me to move that quickly. We got into the car, and he said, 'What the bleep was that?'"

Teta exclaimed, "Wow, Doug E. got fresh," to which Sunny responded, "Doug E. got too fresh for Manny, and he doesn't like it. You could say he is worse than I am. We don't like that stuff."

EW has reached out to representatives for Sunny and Fresh for comment.

On Hostin's 55th birthday telecast, she told the audience that she "wanted to help celebrate 50 years of hip-hop with artists who are so iconic that it takes three to perform" The View's musical tribute to the genre.

Hostin then welcomed Fresh, Rob Base, The Sugarhill Gang, and DJ Chill Will to the set, while she and her cohosts — including Ana Navarro, Alyssa Farah Griffin, Sara Haines, and Joy Behar — remained in the audience to dance along.

Later in the show, Hostin approached the stage to interview Fresh, telling him that she saw him perform at her first-ever concert "about 35 years ago," and Fresh responded enthusiastically when Hostin told him that he influenced her "fly girl fashions back in the day."

Just before the episode ended, Hostin took the stage with the performers as they launched into another song, with Fresh breaking from behind the group as the credits rolled and danced near Hostin for a brief moment before the show cut out.

Sunny and Manny, a surgeon, married in 1998, two years after meeting at a bagel shop following a church service they both attended in Maryland. The couple shares two children together, Paloma and Gabriel — all of whom the cohost enthusiastically speaks about on the program.

The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. ET on ABC. Listen to the Behind the Table podcast above.
