LAW & ORDER: SVU star Mariska Hargitay and U.S. TV host Joy Behar went head-to-head in an auction over the weekend (10-11Jul10) after they both had their eye on the same item.
The actress and The View presenter were at the Mulford Farm Show in East Hampton, New York when they began bidding for the same mirror.
After a tense battle, Behar gave in and let Hargitay buy the antique piece for $1,600 (£1,067).
Joking about backing down at the auction, Behar tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "Well, she carried a gun on TV. I'm physically afraid of her."
