Joy Behar and Meghan McCain's conflict continues even following Meghan's maternity leave. 

During the Tuesday, Jan. 5 episode of the The View, the panelist, who returned to the show on Jan. 4, wasn't exactly welcomed back with open arms by all of her co-hosts. During the "Hot Topics" segment, the new mom interrupted Joy while she was speaking, which the comedian did not take too kindly. 

"I was speaking," Joy shouted, which quickly erupted into her, Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan talking over each other. Eventually, Meghan laughed and said, "Joy, you missed me so much when I was on maternity leave. You missed me so much. You missed fighting with me. Don't act like you don't miss fighting with me." 

With a straight face, Joy responded, "I did not. I did not miss you. Zero." But then she proceeded to burst into laughter. 

However, Meghan, who recently gave birth to her first child Liberty Sage McCain Domenech, didn't find the comment amusing at all.

"Oh my god. You know what?, That's so nasty," said Meghan angrily. "That's like so nasty. I was teasing because you said something rude. Like really." Before the two could go another round back and forth, Whoopi and Sunny Hostin jumped in in an attempt to get the conversation back on track.

Of course, as fans know, this isn't nearly the first time the two co-hosts have said "nasty" remarks to each other. 

Back in February 2018, Joy and Meghan got into a heated argument while discussing the then chief of staff John Kelly being surprised by the former White House aide Rob Porter's alleged spousal abuse. What initially seemed like a moment of miscommunication led to a full-blown screaming match.

But that was still nothing compared to the June 2019 episode when Meghan outright called Joy a bitch on air.

"I'm the sacrificial Republican every day," Meghan said as Joy let out an audible groan during, yet another, heated debate. "I'm just trying to—don't feel bad for me bitch. I'm paid to do this. Don't feel bad for me."

Sunny then hopped in and professed, "Let's not start calling each other bitches."
