Ex-Playboy Playmate Jessica Hahn and legendary journalist Barbara Walters faced off in a tense moment on Tuesday's edition of The View, as the show's theme this week is based on past scandals, and Walters’ own published words about one of her own scandalous happenings came back to sting her.

When Walters segued into asking Hahn about her affair with disgraced televangelist Jim Bakker, Hahn reminded Walters, "In your book, you had an affair with a married senator," causing "oohs" and "aahs" from the audience, not used to seeing Walters rattled atop her pedestal.

"This is not about me," Walters shot back. "This is about you."

"And where are we now ..." Walters said in hopes of changing the subject.
