Well, this gives new meaning to the word "selfie." Barbara Walters got a little too personal on The View on Monday, Feb. 17, when the topic of "self-love" came up during a discussion with colleagues Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shepherd, and guest host Ross Mathews.

"I was very happy at 65. I liked it more than 66," the 84-year-old co-host said of getting older.

"Do you have more self-confidence, and more self-love?" McCarthy asked, prompting Walters to quip suggestively, "Self-love?"

"You know self-love, Barbara. Friday night self-love!" Shepherd teased.

"You start talking about that vibrator of yours again, I can't handle it!" Goldberg interjected, as Walters said, "You know what it's called? A selfie!"

"The name of Barbara's vibrator is 'selfie,'" Goldberg repeated. "Fantastic."

Incidentally, this is not the first time Walters has made a vibrator joke on The View. Back in 2009, she and former co-host Joy Behar discussed the topic while considering dream luxury purchases.

"Let's say there's one luxury thing now that you could buy," Walters began, before Behar interrupted with, "You mean, besides a vibrator?" That set up Walters for an even better punchline: "For [you], that's not a luxury, that's a necessity!"
