Well, this is uncomfortable!
On Wednesday, March 22, The Talk hosts announced the 2017 Daytime Emmy nominees during their show, but star Sara Gilbert had quite a hard time pronouncing many of the honorees’ last names — including those of The View cast!

Then, one day later, Whoopi, 61, began The View‘s newest episode by calling out Sara’s embarrassing gaffe. “I think [the nominations] were announced on The Talk and I think a couple of the women weren’t sure about the pronunciation of everyone’s names so please introduce yourself so people know,” Whoopi said to her castmates.
After stars Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, Jedediah Bila, and Joy Behar stated their names, Whoopi added, “We’re thrilled that you guys announced us. We love that, and we just wanted to say, ‘Hey, here’s how you do our names,’ because maybe our names or some of our names are a little more difficult for folks… We just want to say congratulations to everyone who does this show. “

Later on Thursday, Sara, 42, began The Talk by apologizing for mispronouncing so many of the Emmy nominees’ monikers. “I got so many names wrong because I was so nervous and normally when we say people’s names, we’ve gone over who the guests are and we practiced but this was an in the moment thing where we were finding out right along with you who was nominated,” she explained.
“So I made several mistakes and I was even nervous when I was saying it knowing I was saying things wrong,” Sarah continued. “So I’m very, very sorry to any of the women whose names I got wrong. It was a true mistake. I respect you guys. I congratulate you. I would never want to take away from your moment.”
“So I am truly sorry. And it’s The View and The Real so I wish you guys luck and again, I apologize. We celebrate you guys,” she added.
