Red faces at Good Morning America as host asks what ‘teabagging’ is

Good Morning America host Elizabeth Vargas had one of those ‘oops’ moments on Wednesday that is an operational hazard of working on live TV every day.

It happened as she interviewed Australian actress Isla Fisher, who referred to ‘teabagging’ as she was describing an act between her mother and a male stripper.

Ms Vargas, 50, laughed and then asked ‘What’s teabagging?’

Ms Fisher, who was promoting her movie ‘Bachelorettes,’ demurred. So did her co-stars Lizzy Caplan and Kirsten Dunst.

‘I’m not going to explain it — it’s her…’ Ms Dunst chimed in.

‘Lizzy knows all about it,’ Ms Fisher offered.

An awkward second passed. It became clear the Ms Vargas, a seasoned journalist, really didn’t know what the term meant and she was curious to learn it’s definition.

The three actresses exchanged nervous laughs and glances.

Clearly, none of them was willing to risk the ire of censors by explaining the lewd sex act on live network television.

‘You can google it later,’ Ms Dunst finally said, patting Ms Vargas on the knee.

Ms Fisher’s story, however, likely gave Ms Vargas adequate clues as to the nature of ‘teabagging.’

She was describing her 50-year-old mother’s trip to a male strip club when she said: ‘I went to the bathroom momentarily but then when I came back, a gentleman had removed his briefs, she was on stage lying flat and he was about to teabag her,’ the Australian comedian said.
