There was a time when Joan Rivers delighted audiences with her humor, but that was a long time ago. Now her filthy antics make even her panelists recoil in embarrassment. That’s what happened on E! during her May 30 episode of “Fashion Police.”
The occasion for Rivers’ vulgarity was a picture of singer Solange Knowles (Beyonce’s sister) with her hair sticking up, looking particularly messy. Rivers quipped, “From the looks of Solange’s hair that comb gets used less frequently than the pope’s penis.”
Moreover, Rivers took another stab at Catholics during the June 27 edition of “Fashion Police” when she remarked on a short plaid skirt worn by Katy Perry. “She is so much a Catholic schoolgirl that three priests stopped her to say ‘you’re cute, do you have a brother?'”
This is the way Rivers wants to be remembered; she just celebrated her 81st birthday. Hardly a week goes by that she doesn’t sport her anti-Catholic bigotry, typically in a patently obscene manner. At least her panelists didn’t find her remark humorous. Too bad they didn’t walk out on her. The fact that Joan Rivers’ daughter is the executive producer of the show suggests that this is a family problem.
