“The View” co-host Joy Behar was hospitalized over the weekend after she stabbed her hand with a knife. Following her absence on the Monday, Joy returned on Tuesday and explained the injury. She said, “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 up an avocado, and I stuck the knife into the pit to get it out … and I stabbed myself.” Joy said that she had “never had pain quite so intense – it was awful.” She added, “Apparently, there is a syndrome called Avocado Hand. It’s real. And the doctor said, ‘Oh, we get this all the time.’ So anytime you’re holding the item and you try to cut it, you can get this. So what happened was I guess there must have been infection, [so] they put me in the hospital overnight.” Though Joy was given a protective glove and an avocado slicer after her accident, she has another idea about how to help prevent future injuries; “I was thinking instead of this; I’m going to leave the dicing to Rachael Ray and I’m only going to buy ready-made guacamole.”

Alicia Silverstone let her 7-year-old son, Bear Blu, watch her movie “Clueless” when it was recently played at an outdoor film screening, but now she regrets it. She said, “I took him to see it because it’s at the L.A. cemetery where they show it for 4,000 people…The one thing he took away from it, aside from all the things I was worried about, was he kept trying to French kiss me afterwards.” So how did she handle it? Alicia said, “I just kept my mouth closed! That’s what I did. And I just giggled. It’s super sweet.” But all is well now since Alicia added, “It’s fine, he’s not doing it anymore. That’s what his takeaway was.” Remember, Alicia used to pre-chew Bear’s food for him and spit it into his mouth like a baby bird, so I don’t think she can totally blame her movie for Bear’s confusion.

Former Miss Universe 2012 and model Olivia Culpo has reunited with her ex, New England Patriots player Danny Amendola, just three months after their split. The two were a couple at Danny’s friend’s wedding in Houston on Saturday. The two had been dating for two years before calling it quits, with rumors suggesting it was Danny’s move from the New England Patriots in Massachusetts to the Miami Dolphins in Florida that was part of the reason for their break-up since they had already been struggling to spend time together.

The producers of “Game of Thrones” don’t want any secrets of their final season to leak. From what we hear, the actors on the show have only been given special digital copies of the shooting scripts that will “disappear” immediately after filming. According to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, “They’re very, very strict. When we’ve shot the scene, it just vanishes. It’s like ‘Mission: Impossible,’ ‘This will self-destruct.’” But HBO isn’t the only company going to such lengths; Disney prints all of its “Star Wars” scripts on dark red paper, which is impossible to photo copy, and, during the filming of “Captain America: Civil War,” all scripts were shredded at the end of each day. Our Kellogg Krew show gets shredded every day, but usually that’s verbally by the boss.
