Joan Rivers is on The Late Show tonight, and David Letterman asked her about the recent interview she did with CNN where she walked while filming it. After they CBS host and the comedian were done talking about it, they changed topics. I guess she said something he didn’t like because he got up and walked out. In other words, he did a Joan Rivers to Joan Rivers.
Which actually was a good thing because she told a dirty dirty joke that actually made me laugh really hard. It is also a good thing Dave wasn’t in the room at the time because who knows what hearing that word, coming out of her mouth, on his show, would’ve done to him.
Finally, if you think he really walked out on her, you are wrong. If he could sit through Joaquin Phoenix the whole time during that infamous interview and never leave, then why would he do it to an old old friend?
Joan Rivers was being interviewed by CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield, and the comedian wasn’t happy with it, so she got up and walked out.Rivers has made a career making fun of people, but if you call her on that, it seems like she will get up and walk away.
When Fredricka asked her about being mean on Fashion Police, Rivers said she’s making fun of their clothes and not the person in them. Then Joan explained, the celebrities whose threads she goes off on are in a different bracket and don’t care what she says because they make millions of dollars.
When that line of questioning wasn’t working out, the anchor took it in a different direction. She then asked Joan about the fur coat she’s wearing on the cover of her new book. Joan responded by calling the host a hypocrite because she’s wearing leather shoes. Which I think was Joan deferring from that line of questioning.
Finally when Whitfield asked her about hearing those type of comments at press conferences, Joan had enough, got up and walked away from what she considered a negative interview.
And here, I was thinking she was in one of those brackets of the people’s who clothes she makes fun of. So shouldn’t she just sit there, grin and bear it? I mean, she is so quick dish it, and even quicker not to take it. Which I personally find very hypocritical.
Now, when it comes to Whitfield, how annoying was her fake smile and laugh throughout the whole interview. Maybe Joan was correct about her not being the right person to interview someone who does “humor” for a living.
Getty Images captured Joan Rivers at the Larger Than Life Gala looking like this, and in my mind I am imagining why she made that face. The one image that stands out the most, is she finally got a glimpse of her face in the mirror. Why do you think she has that expression on her face?
I normally don’t agree with the stuff that comes out of Joan Rivers’ mouth, but I agreed with what she said about Gwyneth Paltrow on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. Rivers was asked by a viewer, what was the worse backlash that she has received for anything she has said on her show, Fashion Police. She made some faces as she told her, “The worst criticism was from Gwyneth Paltrow.” Then she added, “She came and yelled at us. She stood up. She can’t sit down because she has a stick up her rear end.” If ever that joke worked, that was it.
No word how Paltrow responded to slam, but I am sure the stick and her will not be Conscious Uncoupling anytime soon after hearing what Joan said.
Joan Rivers Tweeted these pictures of Robert De Niro and her from Monday’s premiere of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and I have to wonder if they have something to tell us? Nope, but she wishes they did because she said this, “If Bobby De Niro only knew about my secret crush on him. (Don’t tell his very chic wife!)” with the photos. Could you imagine if they ever did have something to tell us? Let’s not and say that we did.
Yesterday on Fashion Police, Joan Rivers dressed as Miley Cyrus at the VMAs, but she looks more a like a Sumo Wrestler to me. I don’t get why she wore a fat suit because Miley is a lot of things and fat isn’t one of them.
First Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent had a thing going on and now it looks like Joan Rivers wants in on the action. The Plastic Surgery Queen downed a shot of his SK Energy Drink and then she wanted to get filthy with Fiddy. No word yet if anything happened between them and I don’t want to know.
If I were him, I would be nervous because next up might be Barbara Walters. Can you imagine that pairing?
Joan Rivers has no problem making fun of celebrities, but yesterday when she was on The Late Show with David Letterman she hit the below belt with her jokes. First she went off on Goldie Hawn and said “Goldie has allegedly been pulled so tight, they say, ‘when she swallows she has an orgasm’” Unlike Joan who has been pulled so tight when she scratches her head her feet itch. Then she made an unfunny joke about Joan Collins that isn’t even worth repeating.
Finally she went after Betty White saying that the only reason her career had a resurgence is because she is known in the business as “Bendover Betty”. Really why go there? If Betty and Joan battled it out on a roast the Golden Girl would easily win. When it comes to funny Betty knows how to do it better.
BTW it seems I am not the only one who didn’t find the jokes funny because Letterman didn’t appear to like them either.
Joan Rivers was on The Late Show with David Letterman and she told him that she still has sex appeal, but thankfully she opts not use it. Seriously that only men that get turned on by her are plastic surgeons…
She then went on to tell him her “vagina is like Newark…Men know it is there, but they don’t want to visit.” A and men!
