She recounted dressing up as a "beautiful African woman" for Halloween and wearing makeup that was "a little bit darker than my skin", the news site Atlanta Black Star reported.

In the clip, Ms. Behar boasted about how she has naturally curly hair and gave evidence by showing a photo of her 29-year-old self at a Halloween party.

At the time, the only non-white co-host next to her was Raven-Symoné who seemed puzzled and kept questioning just what she was looking at since the photo was also shown to the studio audience. She says that the hair was her own and that she had dressed as a "beautiful African woman".

"I was so cute", Ms. Behar said.

A resurfaced photo of daytime host Joy Behar has folks choosing sides amid recent controversy surrounding the use of blackface.

"That's my hair!" Behar said, pushing the conversation about her hair during the segment.

"I was 29", explained Behar.

A highly inappropriate photo of someone wearing blackface and someone else dressed in a KKK outfit also appeared on his medical school yearbook page from 1984 - which at first he apologized for, but now maintains he was neither of those individuals.

In the fall, NBC Today anchor Megyn Kelly was ousted from the network after defending blackface. Moments later, Symoné said, "I love it though".

"I don't see how that is racist on Halloween", said Kelly, remarking on a cast member from Bravo's Real Housewives of NY getting into trouble for dressing up as legendary singer Diana Ross.

Messages seeking comment were not returned from Behar's agent and the ABC program. "She wants to look like Diana Ross for one day, and I don't know how that got racist on Halloween", the former Fox host continued, noting that the costume was done in homage, not mockery.

Behar has yet to address the recently resurfaced photo at the time of this writing. "Even if she's often unfair to conservatives - stick to basic principles of fairness", Ingraham tweeted on Thursday morning about the Behar image.
