Is the moon a star or a planet? This was the argument that took place on live TV between fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi and QVC host Shawn Killinger.

Mizrahi was on the shopping network in a bid to promote his latest designs, but the discussion got sidetracked from fashion to astronomy after Killinger described one of his pieces in a rather colorful way.

"It almost kinda looks like what the earth looks like when you're a bazillion miles away from the planet moon," she said.

"Yes, yes, I squinted at it, and you're right," the designer agreed.

Realizing that she'd made a mistake by calling the moon a planet, Killinger asked the designer, "Isn't the moon a star?"

For all of you out there who are still confused, the moon is a natural satellite.

And here's where the conversation took a turn for the worse and became really cringy!

"No, the moon is a planet, darling," Mizrahi said, before Killinger interjected saying, "The sun is a star. Is the moon really a planet?"

"The moon is a planet, honey," Mizrahi said again.

"Don't look at me like that. The sun is a star... Is the sun not a star?" Killinger asked.
