"Why don't they just have marital sex on the stage next?" joked Joy.

When Oscars director Glenn Weiss got down on one knee and proposed during the Emmys on Monday night, Leslie Jones reacted with shock, Claire Foy cried ... and Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin groaned.

Recalling what was easily recognized as the most exciting moment of the evening during "The View" on Tuesday morning, the two co-hosts explained why their hearts didn't also swell with emotion watching it.

"I couldn't stand it, frankly," said Behar. "When he said that, my hair stood up, don't do public displays. Why don't they just have marital sex on the stage next?"

"Get off your knee and eat your caesar salad," she added.

"We must be cold hearted bitches," both Hostin and Joy said.

"I was watching it like, why is he hogging up the show?" Hostin continued. "Do it in private, have it be a special moment. Why am I part of it? I didn't like it."

Abby Huntsman appreciated the drama the moment brought to what she considered an otherwise snooze of a show.

"I was watching it live and these shows have become so boring, they're not funny and this was the moment that took everyone by surprise," she said. "I thought it was such a sweet moment, I wish we had more moments like this on television."

That's when Hostin deadpanned, "I hated it."

Behar kept piling on too, calling it "narcissistic" to make it "all about you." "This is my rule about television, I don't like it when people on TV are having more fun than I am having watching it," she added, saying she loves shows filled with crime and murder.

Weiss popped the question to Jan Svendsen while picking up Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special, after explaining that his mother had just passed away. Following her advice to never "let go of your sunshine," he proposed to the "sunshine in my life."
